A quick update on our ‘Voluntary Subscription’ drive here on TDG. A month in, we have had 145 donations made – thanks so much to all that have offered some support, it makes such a huge difference to my ability to push the site forward.

However – and I don’t mean to sound ungrateful, or demanding – 145 people (in a month) is *less than 1%* of our daily audience. I would like to think that the hours and expense that gets poured into TDG over the course of a year is perhaps worth, say, the price of a coffee? If it’s not a valuable resource for 99% of readers, what is the point of the site continuing?

So come on, skip that coffee tomorrow and instead help ensure the future of The Daily Grail. Even if you do think the site’s a worthless pile of crap, you still might get lucky and win a very nifty prize (details below)! Here’s the PayPal donation button, you know you want to click it (you don’t need a PayPal account, you can use your credit card as well):

(edit 11th May 2011: the button has now been removed due to a change in PayPal account)

Now: the upside of having just 145 donations so far is that – at the moment – the chances of those ‘voluntary subscribers’ winning a prize is about 1 in 15 (and getting better as more prize commitments come in). There are signed books from the likes of Jacques Vallee and Graham Hancock on offer, as well as a *very* nice piece of signed occult memorabilia from the Tool camp (thanks Blair!). More besides, but I’ll keep that for the next update – let’s see if we can get up to 200 voluntary subscribers by then! Remember too, the more you donate, the more entries you get in the draw.

Once again, a huge thanks to all those who have contributed to the our funding drive. You’re all stars.
