Are you set up to take donations?

I know how expensive running a website can be; this website is so great I would love to give a little back!

I have also wondered why there is no membership fee. I would definitely donate also.

Thank you, Lisa. I was going to post the same type of question ... I would be MORE than happy to contribute money to CC in order to feed my addiction! I benefit SO MUCH from this site ... most days it is my refuge from a world gone seemingly crazy.

I'm truly feeling guilty because I've learned so much here, and have paid not one dollar for the vast stores of wisdom and information contained herein.

Maybe you guys could set up a PayPal donation button for donations?

Nope, twinsline, I'm cheap too!!! I would hate a membership fee.... if they took donations - fine by me - I might be able to donate something every now and then - but a membership fee might kill me! I think they probably do a good deal of business from us buying stuff from them too... well I hope they do. I love it and appreciate it - and sometimes people say you don't really appreciate something when it's free - BUT I DO APPRECIATE THIS SITE AND I APPRECIATE IT BEING FREE - that way, we can spend our money on cake tools, toys, ingredients, etc!! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

Hey Everyone icon_biggrin.gif

Jackie and I really appreciate the desire for people to donate.

Unfortunately we are not set up to take donations. As Cake Central has grown, we have had to turn it into a Company and therefore it would not be appropriate to accept straight donations.

The very best way you can ensure the future of Cake Central is to do your shopping for cake supplies here. The Store is what allows us to pay the server costs and keep this community free. Also the more successful the store does, the more new and interesting products we can add to the selection.

We have just expanded the store's offerings this month, and by the end of the month it will all be in-stock. We strive to give excellent pricing and top notch customer service, and I don't think you will often get a better shipping price on the net than what we charge.

Cake Central will never ever charge a membership fee, that would be completely against our purpose when Jackie set out to create this place.

Thanks again everyone for how much you care about CC, it makes all the work so worthwhile for Jackie and I when we see how much you all care about each other, and about this community thumbs_up.gif

This makes me want to buy my supplies from CC too! I use this site SO much and have learned an incredible amout from everyone here...if that is a way to pay for this site to remain available, then that's what I'll do! I have purchased something from here recently and I was so impressed with how quickly it was shipped. The bigges problem I have had is that almost everything I have tried to purchase has been out of stock...bu that hopefully is a GOOD thing for you guys! Hopefully it means you had a lot in stock, and everyone bought them up! My thanks go out to those who keep this site running. I almost had anattack the other day when I signed on and CC was down for maintenance for 2 days!...lol...I found myself running back to check every couple of hours! I needed my CC fix!...lol

If I had the money to donate I think I would but I kind of get worried when promoting this site to others because I am afraid that if we get the wrong kind of people in hear we would lose this wonderful family feeling. So I guess there are times I am greedy but only when the sake of this site is an issue. More happy people is ok with me. thumbs_up.gif

I don't hesitate to tell people to come to this site. Afterall, it is pretty much all encompasing and as far as information goes, if it hasn't been disgussed and someone really needs an answer someone will go way out of theirt way to help them. This is definately the site to be at!

I guess you are right. It is just that I was surfing the Internet when there were still some chat places you could go safely and not have to worry about all the crap. Not that I think the mod's don't do a good job I just would not want to make their jobs harder.
