Twelve issues of Vashti’s Crochet Inspirations Newsletter costs up to about $3000 a year to produce if you factor in a basic living wage and the value of product creation it displaces.
If a fraction of subscribers donated a mere $2 a year, it would completely eliminate the production costs. It’s remarkable what $2 can do!
The $2.33 amount is so that the 33¢ offsets finance fees. ($2.00 is the actual amount that will go toward the newsletter production costs).
You’re very welcome to donate more than $2, just select a different increment. Thank you!
To be perfectly frank, it’s likely that I’d continue to produce this newsletter out of my pocket, like I have been for years. It’s a classic “labor of love”. It’s so rewarding and meaningful for me that I would miss the discoveries and the sharing if I stopped. (I don’t think saving myself the $3000 would make up for it enough.)
The amount has sometimes been a burden, and the costs do creep higher. If I were a subscriber of this newsletter, I would want to know how I could help. I’d also like knowing that $2 can still do a lot.
Any amount of help is so appreciated!
