If you like what is on this site I would appreciate if you could financial contribute. Think of it like buying me a coffee, or a one-time Patreon. Rest assure that I will not tell anyone that you have supported me (other than the company which processes your contribution and for accounting purposes).
It costs about $120 CAD per year to run this website, and I would appreciate financial support to run this site. My time in running the site (writing posts, keeping the site updated etc..) isn’t included in the cost.
If you need help with your website, then please consider hiring my company (Gregory J Development), as it’s just me right now all profits go back to me / my company.

Donate directly to charity
You can also support a charity directly. Here are some of my favourite charities (or those that put their donations to good use). I would appreciate an email saying you made a charity donation, but you don’t have to.
Second Harvest “Founded in 1985, Second Harvest rescues fresh food and delivers it to hungry people in Toronto.”
OpenMedia “OpenMedia works to keep the Internet open, affordable, and surveillance-free.”
Hope Air “Hope Air is the only Canadian charity that provides nationwide free flights and lodging for people who cannot afford travel costs to access specialized medical care unavailable in their area.”
EFF “The leading nonprofit defending digital privacy, free speech, and innovation.”
ProPublica “ProPublica is an independent, non-profit newsroom that produces investigative journalism in the public interest.”
Charity: water “Bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries.”
The Markup “Working to uncover how much big tech impacts our world” “(Warning: animations on the donation page)
If all those aren’t in your local currently, or are too expensive due to the exchange rate / purchasing power parity, or high power cost, please consider giving to your local animal shelter, or another charity of your choosing.
Please don’t give to the Samaritan’s Purse, or The Salvation Army.
