Click on ChipIn to donate via paypal and keep the AWK Party going!
Transparency is policy here at AndrewWKMusic.com as far as our cash flow. So I would like to take a minute to clarify exactly how your money spent and donations work here exactly. This website has been set up to bring in cash in a number of different ways.
- Our Shop has two different sections, CDs and custom clothing. Our CDs are set up through Amazon.com and our custom clothing is through Cafepress.com. We make a modest percentage on every item you purchase via our links.
- Ads, a tab for Google ads can be found on the right hand column of this page. Advertisements that might apply to you personally will appear there. Every time you click on them and continue on to that site well earn pennies for every click. However, abuse of clicking through is the quickest way to get it shut down for us. But please feel free to click on them though if they really do interest you!
- Donations are probably the best way to help us out because 100% of the money will be put toward the site. A widget will always be available on the right column of your screen, a tab called Fund AWK Music has a button saying ChipIn, click on it to donate! Any amount helps! Please let me know if you dont have a paypal account and you want to donate.
- We do not/will not make money off ANYTHING thats been created by artists! – So please dont even offer. This includes MP3s, CDs, DVDs, Bootlegs, Photos, Artwork, etc. its not for sale! Any content available on this site is for archival purposes only and will be removed promptly if an Artist asks us to remove it. By downloading content you agree that you personally own the content already.
I, dickalan have taken care of the first years worth of hosting of this website. Without getting to technical, this means it costs money to buy a domain name (www.andrewwkmusic.com) and it costs money to have the website hosted or stored by a company. Think of the hosting company like a hard drive and we pay for them to store our files (this website) for the time being. We use www.dreamhost.com and highly recommend it if youre planning on building your own website; they have been great!
Now to the point of this post. This websites hosting will be one year old November 29, 2010. The cost to renew a full years worth of hosting is $120 USD (United States Dollars). This would take us through November 29, 2011. There is a risk that this site will shut down unless this goal is met. ALL money acquired, no matter the means, will be put towards the cost of hosting. After $120 is exceeded in a years time, the net profit will then be put towards the website owners personal gain, however great or small that is. IF a net profit is ever made the option to make donations will immediately stop. However, the other avenues to make a profit will remain.
To give you reference in how much weve acquired in the past 9 months, weve made $5 bucks! So we have $115 more dollars to go. Hence, the reason for this post. As mentioned above the best way to help this site out is via donations. Any amount helps! Youll need a paypal account. If you dont have one please let me know and well figure something else out.
