Support Thrasher's Wheat

First, the good news. Over the past few years, Thrasher's Wheat has seen a steady increase in the number of visitors and traffic. So a big thanks to all you long time regular readers and welcome new readers.

Now for the not so good news. Earlier this year with the release of the highly controversial Living With War, site traffic surged to an all-time high. Excessive site traffic has led to increased fees and forcing cost-cutting measures like the removal of graphics in the right sidebar.

Until now, the bandwidth expenses and other site costs have come -- and gladly so -- from my pocket.

So in order to continue Thrasher's Wheat and make improvements such as faster page loads, I would like to ask for your support. I've considered our options and would prefer to keep the site advertisement free. By going the reader-supported route, there are two ways in which you can support Thrasher's Wheat.

The first option is to make a donation using PayPal. Just click on the link below to make a donation. If you do not have a PayPal account, you can use a credit card to make a donation.

The second option is to shop for your CDs, DVDs, books and other merchandise using the Amazon link below. Each time you purchase an item on Amazon, Thrasher's Wheat will receive a small commission.

Hopefully, this will work to help defray the costs of running Thrasher's Wheat. Any excess funds generated above and beyond operating expenses will be donated to The Bridge School.

Again, thanks to everyone for your support, ideas, and submissions over the last 10 years. It is very much appreciated!

And Keep on Rockin' in the Free World!
