Over the past three years people have often asked if they can chip in in support of my work, just to say thank you – or to help in some small (or big) way (with a specific thing or to help in general.) The work I do has always been a collaborative effort with my readers (with them helping to direct what I test and write about and also helping to cover the cost of testing and other costs of my advocacy.) In this way we are a team and I always welcome your contributions.
I truly appreciate your generosity and have created this page to help make it easy to chip in via PayPal. [Sort of a go-fund-me, without go-fund-me!] Thank you! The PayPal buttons are below but there are other ways to chip in listed under the PayPal buttons as well.
FYI & to be clear, I am not affiliated with any nonprofit, and your contributions here will therefore not be tax-deductible – just very much appreciated! Click the “Pay Now” button below (to contribute any amount) or choose one of the hearts below to contribute that specific amount!
Note: Each and every contribution received is reported as income to Lead Safe Mama, LLC on our taxes.
More PayPal Buttons!
I added the buttons below for fun! 🙂 In case anyone just won the lottery or is otherwise feeling generous!
