Why donate?

A mighty fine question indeed.  Here are some good reasons I can think of:

  • My writing is providing a service that our society desperately lacks
  • An entry on this site has damn near enlightened you
  • Insight from one of these articles has ended up saving you time, money or regular frustrations
  • I've inspired you to think about or pursue meaningful dreams of your own
  • This site is one of many websites that will collectively bring an end to corrupt media giants
  • I give you something valuable to read which also makes you look busy while at work (ha!)
  • Some of the articles on this website have made you bust out in laughter or nod your head in agreement
  • Because you want to help 'wake up' your fellow man but haven't got the time to properly do so

Without contributions from you, the reader, the wheels will simply stop turning and our story will come to an end.  Any donations made to this website will likely be directly converted into food or health insurance -- both very necessary for me to endlessly pedal and write.  If you want to contribute, check out some of the methods below.  Every little bit will help. 


Donate via PayPal or Credit Card

You do not need to register with PayPal to make a payment using your credit card. The process is simple and secure. PayPal doesn't charge you anything to make the payment, but they will take out 2.9% plus $0.30 from my end of the transaction.

The names of those who donate will be written onto the 'sponsors' page when I can gain internet access.  The amount donated is not displayed.  If you prefer your name not be listed, please specify this detail in the "Message to seller" text box on PayPal's website.

PayPal accepts:

Subscribe to donate monthly via PayPal

If you've enjoyed this website enough to consider donating a couple bucks per month, you can sign up for a monthly subscription via PayPal.   You can use any major credit card or bank account to setup automatic payments.  Again, it does not cost you anything to make donations through PayPal, however, they will deduct 2.9% plus $0.30 from my end.  To stop automatic payments, you can come back to this page at any point and click the "Cancel" button below.

The names of those who donate will be written onto the 'sponsors' page when I can gain internet access.  The amount donated is not displayed.  If you prefer your name not be listed, please specify this detail in the "Message to seller" text box on PayPal's website.

About the author:

... ...
My name is Charles Tronolone and I'm attempting something a bit unconventional; I'm trying to make a living by writing while on a perpetual bicycle tour. How I got to this point is a story in itself, but suffice to say that I refuse to be just another cog in the machine. There's too much important work to be done and too many eyes to open for us to be content with personal goals or riches. In late 2006, I managed to escape the machine, and now I'm setting off to help bring it down.

Whether or not this website proves to generate the revenue required to keep me on the road remains to be seen. I understand that the odds are heavily against me and that this means of income requires incredible amounts of time I simply won't have. However, it's the content that is going to accomplish what actually matters in the end. Should I fail financially, there's pride in knowing that I have already succeeded in purpose -- I have helped to liberate my peers to spread truth and meaning into their own lives.

If you're interested in helping my cause or have found the articles on this site to be personally beneficial or simply entertaining, please check out a couple of the ways you can help contribute. Aside from a kind donation, there is actually an easy way for you to earn $20 while simultaneously helping me on my mission. It allows you to withdrawal cash from *any* foreign ATM without paying a fee, and it's something that has saved me a lot of money while traveling. Click here to learn more.
