Calling all VL'ers: I did it...will you?
« on: May 23, 2007, 07:16:48 pm »

VL'ers,

I just made my first formal donation to the VL-project via Paypal (credit cards are also accepted). I bought a VL shirt last year, but was overcome by the urge to donate straight-up cash tonight, and did it.

If you feel similarly, make a donation (button on the VL home page) or buy a Deluxe CD (check the VL CD Store). If you do, post here so we can put the power of community (resource/cost sharing, peer pressure, etc.) behind our distro :)

Cheers,

LLL

P.S. Hopefully we can organize a more thoughtful fundraising campaign in the future...for now, 'grassroots' it is!

Edit: Don't be shy about making small donations...every little bit!

I donated an amount equal to a VL 5.8 Standard Deluxe CD a couple of weeks ago. When I get around to it and have some extra cash, I'm buying a mug and a mouse pad.

I wish people who can afford it would think of the free ISO download as try-before-you-buy software. Try it out and if you like it and will continue using it, make a donation equal to the price of a Deluxe CD, or more if you have the money. This would bring in a lot of money to VL and make sure our great distro has a bright future.

As I mentioned in this thread, I plan on making a donation as soon as I have funds to do so............I know how much work goes into creating, or even modifying, a distro and want to show my appreciation.......  ;D

Off the top of my head, (meaning no fact checking) I've bought, 3.2, 4.?? and now 5.8Soho. I think. ;-) :D

I intend to get a mug in the near future.

I'll have dollars for my birthday.

The only thing I want for myself is an inexpensive dictionary. The rest of it will probably go to Vector Linux and Link TV.

So far I have purchased one 5.8 Standard Deluxe CD and one 5.8 SOHO CD.

I donated $50 USD to Vector a few months ago solely for the absolutely outstanding use I have gotten out of 5.0.1SOHO and 5.1.1SOHO. I was going to wait for 5.8 SOHO release, but once I decided to donate I was to eager to wait. :)

Still have yet to install the final 5.8 SOHO version on my home box, but really looking forward to it as I've been waiting on 2.20.x before reattempting to get my HD-5500 setup.

Thanks again for such a well done distro!  :)

I also would like to buy me a mug and some cd's but I don't have a creditcard.
Is there another way to buy? I don't trust it to send a check by regular mail.

Basically, you're safe with sending checks via mail; I've done it on several occasions. The only thing I wouldn't send is cash (and besides, they'd have to convert from Euros!!)

For my part, I'm still a-waiting my gift card's arrival in the mail... >:(

Visa. Out of character for me to be using anything resembling a credit card, but it's actually a kind of gift card that should be here within the week...I hope.
