To all members of The Magician's Forum...
For those of you that do not know, our host and moderator, Rudy Tinoco performs the administration and management of this wonderful forum as a labor of love. There are expenses he incurs personally that allow us to be a part of this marvelous meeting place. The infrastructure of the site, along with expenses to maintain a Google Business Hangout for the sessions we enjoy do cost money every month. Rudy did not want me to post this and he may delete it before you have a chance to comment but I believe it is time we pony up a few $$$ for the cause. Rudy has not asked me to post this.... and frankly I think he is a little embarrassed by my doing so. Rudy is our congregational pastor and it is time we pass the plate to help out with these expenses. The link below is Rudy's PayPal account. Fire up your app or webpage and kick in some bucks to defray the cost of running this forum. I challenge every one of you to go give something. Whatever you feel led to give will be fine. Measure the satisfaction you receive by being a member of this community and show Rudy what this forum means to you by making a contribution to the cause. Rudy often tells us this is "our forum". Its time we pay it forward and do the right thing. If you choose not to donate, thats cool. But for those who can, you should. Rudy's PayPal address for sending money is email@example.com Do it now while your thinking of it. And thanks for reading this post and doing the right thing.

This is really kind of you to post and I'm very humbled by your kind words. I'm very proud of this little community that we've all built together. I've said this before and I'll say it again; a community is only as good as it's members. And so...I thank each one of you who generously share your knowledge of life and magic with the rest of us. Thank you for doing it with such respect and kindness. We may be small in number, but we're sure big in heart. Thank you all for your support! Your friend, Rudy __________________ http://www.facebook.com/magicrudy http://www.facebook.com/themagiciansforum

Fair enough. I would be happy to help out.
Rudy, I subscribe to/support a couple of podcasts that I enjoy through Patreon accounts where I am able to pony up a couple of bucks monthly. Patreon wouldn't work for this site, but is there something similar that you can set up through PayPal? Av

I can help Rudy. Websites are my thing plus I have over 140+ hours of experience in the podcast and events world (searching for guests, scheduling, emailing, graphics, audio and video recording, editing, etc). I can find a way to host some of your web 'expenses' on my server and help with any creative work for a while until you get things set up and running. We should talk soon.

Tommy mentioned this during our test session for the HL lecture. It's a wonderful idea and I have already acted on it. This forum is a great place and a little monetary support for Rudy is certainly in order. He has a lot of expenses running the forum and has not put ads etc up to help defray the cost. I prefer the commercial free zone. It's up to us to show our support.

A big thank you to those of you who sent in a donation for the operation costs of this forum.
I want to assure you that I will be a good steward of your hard earned money and this will only go toward the expenses associated with this community. Thanks again! Rudy __________________ http://www.facebook.com/magicrudy http://www.facebook.com/themagiciansforum
