We, the editorial team, love running this sight and being a part of this community with you. In recent months, the website has gone down a couple of times, and as a result we have had to rethink how we host it. We are looking at a new platform but there are costs associated with it. The costs are $650 per year (hosting + mailchimp). To that end, we will be putting a PayPal Donation link onto the site (scroll down and look to the right side) so that those of you who feel like you could donate a bit to help keep the site going can have that opportunity. No pressure to donate at all, but we feel comfortable enough with you to let you know why we are putting it up and what the needs are.

If you have any questions or thoughts, please contact Andy Bruner, Marilyn Gardner, Elizabeth Trotter, or Jonathan Trotter.  (You can reach any one of us by emailing

Thanks for being a part of this group and please seriously consider making a small donation to keep this site going!
