Screen Shot 2013-10-29 at 13.44.14We only started the list below in 2013. We truly want to thank all of the great people (also those donating before 2013) for making this site possible. They are the ones giving us volunteers and founders (all working for free) a boost to continue our work. is being read by more people than ever before, which is great, but which also makes the site more expensive.
We are also proud to be one of the very few sites in the world who have still NO irritating advertisements, as we are convinced that showing almost nude Chinese girls next  to the victims report of a Chinese earthquake is offensive to many of you as it is to us (this happened to us earlier).
Your donation can be made by clicking on the Donation button at the right of this page.

    I have just discovered your website - fascinating!

    Just a silly, silly little comment. In the 'list of donations' section it should be 'whose' not 'who's'!!

    Call me an apostrophe freak.....!
