Can you help us?
Either in the form of time or money?
We need both financial and editing help:
|Financial support: In many ways, this website has been very successful - beyond our wildest hopes:
|Our website receives as many as 11 million hits and 1,200,000
page views from as many as 555,000 people each week.|
||We currently have over 5,400 essays and menus on the site.|
|Our readers download up to 10 gigabytes of information every day.|
|We get about 800 Emails a day.|
|We have received over 60 awards for our website.|
Unlike other religious websites, we make all of our information
available to everyone for free.
That is the good news. The bad news is that we are operating on a
shoestring. One large budgetary item is over $200 per month to CIHost, our
Texas-based Web Hosting service. (There are dozens of free or low cost web hosting
services on the Web, but none can come near to handling our traffic.) A much
larger cost are reference books for our library. We have only one
part-time staff person
who is paid a salary. Meanwhile, banner ads -- our largest source of revenue -- are becoming less effective, as Internet surfers train
themselves to ignore ads. We are relying increasingly on people who feel that we
have a needed message and who want to support us.
|Proofreading: We feel that we do a reasonably good job researching topics and explaining
religious concepts. But we are among the world's worst proofreaders. We need
help from people who can spot typos, spelling and grammatical errors. |
|Conservative Christian reviewer: Finally, although we are a multi-faith group, we have never been able to
attract a religious
conservative to volunteer. We try to explain conservative beliefs accurately, but
can certainly use help from persons willing to review our essays.|

Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, these donations are not eligible for an income
tax deduction at this time. We hope to change this eventually.
