and Donations To A Worthy Cause
Let's Face it...........websites like this are expensive to produce and maintain, and are getting more expensive every day. Since 1998, when we first started the jackwalters.com website, we have been able to foot the bill. But, as you know, times change, things change and people change. The price of quality software alone can be staggering. Then there is the cost of the monthly hosting fees, domain name registration (ongoing), site sumission services, Search engine listing fees (Yes, now it even costs to be listed on major search engines) etc.,etc., etc..
So, how does one maintain a site on an
ongoing basis with a quality hosting
service (so the page is up 24/7 and available all the time),
a 7000+ link pro
directory database, and, of course, the time necessary to do
all of this?
When all is well with the world,
that's fine. When there is an interruption of other income sources,
however, it becomes a real problem.
I think you can get the drift of what I am saying here.
We have been able to raise a few dollars by offering quality affiliate programs like the ones you see above at the top of the page, with outstanding products that really give you your money's worth, but with sharply rising costs, it is no longer enough to keep this huge resource site up and running.
The experts, of course, have
advised us to charge a fee for membership to the website.
So the alternative is to ask for your support
in the form of a small donation.
I have wrestled with this idea for a long
And, it is Easy! Let's say
you were going to donate $2 to this website.
That's a great deal!
But, we are offering more..........
Our great selling
eBook "Humanity and Geography of a nation at War" which sells for
$19.95 is free for the asking!
Download your FREE eBook Here
Even if you go all the way, and donate $5, ( you can donate more, if you choose) you get all your $5 back and you, (and thousands of students and researchers worldwide) can count on this website being there for our visitors 24/7.
Like I mentioned before, it is truly a
win win situation! And, it is Free.
Why not give PayPal
a try, help us to help others by keeping this site up and running,
Win Win -- You win
by getting your money back, and Thousands of Students worldwide win
Your name will be
added to the Donor/Benefactor List
Thanks for taking the time to read this, enjoy your FREE eBook, and remember your help is so much needed and appreciated.
P.S. Did I mention PAYPAL is a FREE Service?

I have used this great service in countless transactions on eBay, both
buying and selling. I have found it to be not only easy to use, but accurate.
Pay-Pal provides instant funds in your account when someone makes a
purchase, or just wants to send you money via email.
Take a few minutes and look at these recent press releases.
It is easy to see that Pay-Pal has come a long way in a very short time.
This is really the Commerce of the Future, and they are willing to give
you $5.00 just to fill out the short information form. This is the real
beauty of Pay-Pal, as you will only have to do it once! For all your future
online transactions, you will never have to give your credit card
info again! more info
I heartily recommend the Pay-Pal Service!
