Edit - Thanks everyone we hit our goal with pledges
Thanks so much, you’re a generous bunch and we know that not everyone that wanted to got a chance to contribute. We love you anyway!
If you’ve pledged already but haven’t had the chance to xfer, please check with me via DM on how much before xfering. This is only a handful of people.
The Justin Guitar Community Open Mic organisers are looking for people to donate to help pay for our own community Zoom licence.
Up until now the community Open Mics have been very generously run with Adrian’s work zoom license, now that the OMs have grown to the point they’re a regular popular feature in the community we thought it best we get our own Zoom license. This will allow us to do some extra things with the open mic in time… and also prevent potential last minute hiccups like almost happened at the last OM . So we have purchased our own Zoom license! Hooray!
We had a couple of people in the OM organising group offer to pay for the whole thing but in the spirit of the community we thought we would offer for people to contribute if they wanted. The JGC OM’s are community run and free.
An annual Zoom license cost us around AU$230 for the year. If you wanted to contribute, we would ask just to contribute up to around AU$10, no more. We have started the pot off with a few donations already, so we’re looking for around AU$198.
Please just post below that you’d like to donate and how much, and then I will send you a direct message with a paypal link to contribute, which will be to my PayPal via PayPal Friends & Family. PayPal does charge a small fee, please consider that part of the donation.
Please don’t give more than the small nominal amount as we don’t want to collect too much and will stop once we have met the goal, and have a suspicion that might be pretty quick! If we meet our goal super quick it will mean we won’t collect from everyone that offers.
All contributions will be tracked in this google sheet to thank the contributors.
Please know that a donation doesn’t get you any special privileges at the OM, and is entirely optional!
