XFamily - Children of God:Donate

xFamily.org collects and preserves information on the The Family cult. In order to make this information freely accessible, server and bandwidth costs are incurred.

Some of these costs are covered by the donation of hosting and server administration from Able2Know.com. However, in order to archive more documents and multimedia, xFamily.org requires additional resources of server space and bandwidth. Our goal is to comprehensively document "everything that is fit to print" about The Family.

If you would like to help us cover the costs of maintaining this website, please use the link below to donate through PayPal:

Our Goal

Our current goal is to provide a buffer of 90 days of hosting funds. This allows us to contract the services we need with a small buffer of funds to ensure that the services can be paid for and that we can maintain this website online. This amount comes out to $606 (please see the information about this sum below).

At the time of this writing, $35.00 has been donated to the xFamily.org Server Fund. --Craven de Kere 04:00, 14 Sep 2005 (CDT)
