Reader Support and Donations

The Mountain News looks to our readers and the larger community for support, such as cash, supplies or services.

Readers:

If you can send us ten or twenty bucks a month we will be extremely grateful, and you’ll get an invite to a smoked-chicken BBQ at my place on the July 4th weekend.  Also, if you are willing to barter paper, ink, computer services, gasoline, etc., in exchange for our editorial and copy-writing services or placement within The Mountain News, we are so ready to make a deal!

Or, use paypal to give an instant donation, thanks!:

 

Checks can be mailed to Bruce A. Smith at PO Box 1676, Yelm, WA 98597.  Thanks, sincerely.

Investors:

The Mountain News is looking for investors who can help us bridge the financial gap until our advertizing revenues are sufficient to support a staff of five – three writers, an ad rep, and a graphics/web page meister.  We currently need 10 grand during our initial stage, and would be happy to get $500 from twenty contributors or hopefully, one big fat check.  You folks get to the head of the chow line at the BBQ, and regular payments starting in about a year at 6% interest.

Ads:

We have a variety of advertising – banner ads, small block ads on the right side of copy pages, a directory, and pictorial inserts, and a variety of pricing schedules.  Call for a quote.

    Hi Bruce, have you considered using PayPal to accept payments? https://www.paypal.com/mpp/merchant
    It is very easy to sign-up and use. This would allow your readers to be able to contribute to your e-paper using credit cards and signing up for reoccuring payment options. Check it out. I love PayPal.

    Wonderful article about Tina. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Good thing you didn’t go back to knock again. She probably had a 12 gauge behind the door.

  3. PayPal has a new rule: They now allow anyone with a credit or a debit card to make a payment to someone who has a PayPal account. And the sender does NOT need a PayPal account of their own, just a valid card. You provide the PayPal address you use to receive payments. (Hint: NEVER use your PayPal receiving address to send an email. It’s not dangerous, but you’ll often start getting spam from other sources.
