During the month of March, Saint Laika’s received £809.50 in donations and £91.38 in commission from Amazon USA. I paid out £87.31 on website expenses. This means I received £813.56 before tax and national insurance – £203.11 more than what I had to live on in February. What is really encouraging is the fact that I received £109.03 more in donations during March than during February. At this precise moment I am feeling relatively optimistic that I may one day hit my target of earning £1500 from my internet work which would be a living wage if not exactly a bank manager's salary.
A huge, big thank you to everybody whose generosity made March 2014 Saint Laika's best month so far financially speaking.
If you are in the financial position to help support my online ministry at Saint Laika's (which is my only work and source of income) and are inclined to do so, please consider becoming a signed up friend of Saint Laika’s, one of the angels without whom the ministry of this online community would not be possible. Pop over to the ANGELS page and choose how much you wish to donate each month. Then click on the relevant button and follow the instructions. You do not need a PayPal account to contribute.
Alternatively, if you would prefer to make a one off donation then please still go to the ANGELS page and on the right hand sidebar, under the heading “Donate to St Laika’s,” you will find a widget that you can adjust to the amount you wish to send to me. Then click on the Donate button and follow the instructions.
Also on the sidebar, under the heading “Amazon Links,” you can help finance my ministry without sending me anything at all. You just have to make your Amazon purchases via one of my Amazon widgets and I will earn commission. It will not cost you anything extra, I promise, and getting a cheque from Amazon for a hundred dollars or so every three months is always a great help.
