Dearest fellow members of our little Fountain Pen Nut house on the digital prairie,

We found a trusted someone kind enough to take over our financial administration, and as a result we are able again to receive donations to pay for upkeep and hosting of our site.

We would also take the opportunity to ask you for your support, as we are running rather low on funds right now, to the degree where one of our members of the moderator and admin team kindly advanced an entire 3 months of hosting.

So, if you could miss even just a small amount, and donate that for what we think is a great cause, the upkeep of FPN, we would be very grateful indeed!

Thank you all very much in advance!

Warmest regards,

The FPN Admin Team


P.s.: You can find the donate button in the side bar on the main page, second box from the top :D
This account is unmanaged.
Please direct questions and comments to FPN Admin email, or directly to admin Wim (wimg).
 
Thank you very much in advance.
 
Warm regards,
The FPN Admin Team

Perhaps we can all volunteer a pen in Classifieds.

I suggest a modest amount with proceeds payable to FPN, we all must have a £10/$15,working, pen that could be sent within own country for basic postage with linked payment to Donations.

Perhaps even have a nominated weekend for this sale for FPN benefit

Could this work?
