Christmas present for a special someone
« on: December 04, 2016, 08:49:30 AM »
Anyone up for chipping in to get ksand24 a Christmas present this year? Or Christmas £££? Thought about this for the last couple of years but never acted on it.
She's done so much for so many of us (along with many other helpers, to be sure, but I think we'd all agree that ksand24 has gone above and beyond for years now) and a fiver from each of us would go a long way.
Discuss.

Absolutely! Fabulous idea! Count me in.  ;D

Isn't she in the Antarctic?  Might make shipping difficult.

So maybe a gofundme page or something. I'm surprised this site doesn't have a voluntary donation or premium member function.

Yeah, I was thinking a gofundme or something similar. Can set one up if there is interest. Happy to Facebook friend anyone who's worried I'm super dodgy.

There is a subscription option on UK Yankee:
http://talk.uk-yankee.com/index.php?action=profile;area=subscriptions;u=15465
£15 a year to be a supporter and £1 a year to be verified (both of which ksand24 has done herself) :)

But that's a bit different than a gift specifically for ksand24 since she's a user (and a darn good one) but she doesn't run the UK Yankee forum.
