Donation Drive Time Again?

I see the Donate button is up on the front page. Is this the yearly donation drive? And if so, what's the goal this year?

It's kind of split this year. Usually we have the donation drive to cover our server costs.

This year, I had the brilliant thought to try to cover stuff like the material cost for buying Blu-rays, paying for the Toei Channel fee, running a seedbox, etc. So that's what this drive is for. I'm still talking with other staff to figure out what other stuff needs coverage. But yeah, after 17 years, TV-Nihon finally has a budget?

Let me check back with our tech guy. Ideally it'd be good to have one donation drive to cover all our expenses. But there might be a secondary drive later to cover server costs?

If it sounds like I'm pretty bad at this stuff, it's probably because I am lol.

FWIW, I'm cool with however many drives are needed. It was more curiosity about why the donation button was up, and what the plan was. So I'll keep an eye out for the eventual front page post. (we have to beat last year's record time!)

Fundraising is legitimately hard. There are people whose entire jobs are dedicated to the task.
