Thread subject: :: A little fund raising drive for

Posted by Susan R Walter on 13-12-2007 17:13

I am writing a report on the diptera found in my local park, and I wanted to make it as appealing as possible, so that the wardens and volunteers will be curious enough to read it and take an interest in their flies. I've surveyed the park for the past couple of years, and always received the most generous help with IDs from the members of Since I am going to get a modest fee for writing the report, I thought I should funnel some of it in Paul's direction to help fund and improve

I've come up with a scheme whereby you can help me, just as a bit of fun really. I am going to ask permission to add links in the report to some of the photos in the gallery. For every photo that you give me permission to link to, I will donate 1 euro to I will also donate 20 euros myself as a sort of subscription. I know this won't add up to an enormous amount of money, but every little helps.

Everyone who gives permission will of course be properly acknowledged in the report. I need to know by the end of the year if I can include a link to your image, as the report will be delivered early January, and I will let you know how much we raise in total :).
