The Britlish Library still needs at least €523.20 to stay online during 2022.

Give Your Support

I hope you are enjoying the British English lessons in the Britlish Library and I hope that you will be able to help me keep the Britlish Library online and free for everyone.

Since I retired in July 2021, I can no longer cover all the costs of the Britlish Library myself. If the Britlish Library is to survive, it needs the help of those who use it and benefit from it. It needs your help!

During 2022, generous Britlishers have kindly raised a gross amount of €3.00 which is a net of around €2.80 help towards the Britlish Library costs after PayPal and Stripe charges. Many thanks to all the Britlishers who have helped so far!

I'd like to give an especially big thank you to Moldova, the most generous country to date. Thank you Moldova for your extremely generous support of the Britlish Library to the tune of €160.00!

PayPal Micropayments and Stripe

I use PayPal micropayments to securely manage the payment processing. I also use Stripe as an alternative for Britlishers who are not comfortable using PayPal.

Any support you can give the Britlish Library costs around 5% + €0.05 in payment processing fees, plus a small currency conversion fee if you are outside of the Eurozone.

I hope you can see from my asking only for micropayments that I am not out to make a fortune from the Britlish Library, but simply aim to raise enough funding to keep it online.

I'd like to thank everyone who has given their kind support already so that we can keep the Britlish Library alive.

Britlish Library Costs

I have tried to itemise the minimum costs of the Britlish Library to show you why I need your help.

I need to raise a minimum of €526 each year, or €44 each month if the Britlish Library is to survive, even without taking into account electricity and the many other costs involved with running the site.

Monthly Cost

Annual Cost

Notes

Site Hosting €19 €226 This is the most essential cost of the Britlish Library. Without it, there is no Britlish Library.
ASW Data Storage and Retrieval €25 €300 Each time you do a lesson, the data must be downloaded from the AWS cloud to make everything as fast as possible for you. This is a cost that increases as more students use the Britlish Library.
