The folks at this site have helped my husband and I close to a dozen times in the past 2 years or so. Is there a way to make a donation to help support the site? I found the thread about the cafepress store, and there's a link in there but I get a 404 error. We'd really like to be able to make a donation, you guys have saved us so much heartache!

A couple of thick porterhouse steaks a 2 lobster tails would be OK with me. I'll send you my address :trumpet: :thumbsup: :flowers: I think I'm speaking for everyone here saying we do it because we can.
This link for the shirts, works for me

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around

LOL, I'll get right on that!

The link for the shirts worked for me (and I may buy a coffee cup), but in that thread they said that BC was making no profit off the shirts, and then gave a link to donate directly, but that link doesn't work.

Not that I don't appreciate free advice, believe me! I was just thinking that if there was a way to help support the site I wanted to find it.

Thanks again Mark.

BC did away with asking for donations a few months ago. The powers that be determined they didn't need to anymore
Just recommend BC to all your friends

I did not know that.

I've asked a member of the board Staff to edit that thread to remove the broken link.

but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

We truly do appreciate your generous offer. If you are adamant about donating I would suggest a PM to the site owner Grinler and discuss your desire with him. The site is by no means a profit making venture, but it is at this point self sustaining. Also since it is self sustaining the donation link was removed late last year, by the site owner.
