Ron and I have received more than enough in donations to go towards the server and then some. We would like the forum as a whole to continue your donations but to direct them to either the Red Cross, who we have added on the main page of the forum, or any organization that you wish to direct your financial support, towards relief and support efforts for those in need in our time of national tragedy.
Again, we thank you all of your for your fantastic support of this forum. We cannot in good conscience continue to collect monies from the forum membership towards this site when these same funds can be better utilized for those in such great need.
Thanks again to one and all.

Parker, thanks for the heartwarming gesture. I was delighted to see the American Red Cross at the top of all HTF pages this morning. You and the other Moderators are class acts.

Thanks so much for the American Red Cross link and the American flag.
This forum is simply the best.

I was real proud to log on and see that American flag pop up. Makes you feel good all over.

Thank you for the Red Cross link. I clicked it to make a donation, but when I got to their donation form, it just hanged (after several tries) and eventually gave a connect error. I'm hoping the reason is that they are being flooded with donations. I went to amazon.com's Red Cross donation page and since they already have my credit card info, I was able to make my donation with about three clicks in less than 30 seconds. Amazon.com's collections alone are over $4 million and counting. Thanks again!

It's difficult to find the words to express how awesome this forum is, and the moderators that run it. It is a pleasure to be part of it.

I'm not sure that the American flag alone is the true symbol that should be represented here, as the US is not alone in this disaster. Americans have the thoughts of the entire free and civilised world with them at this time.

I agree, however, America was the target. And, thankfully, it would be impossible to put up the flag of every nation standing by our side

Good move, Parker. I made a donation last night.
If you have trouble getting into Red Cross's site, you can go to PayPal and they have a link on their main page to make a donation to the PayPal disaster fund. If you're already a member, you can do it in a matter of seconds. If not, you can sign up easily enough, or go to Amazon and do it from there.

Parker, my donation to HTF was posted on Tuesday in Japan before the tragic incident. The envelop with the check was returned on Thursday by the post office marked "Air Mail Service to U.S. suspended." Are you saying that it is recommended to re-direct to the red Cross?

Roger:
Please send your donation that you sent in for the server to any organization that you wish to for support and relief efforts on going instead.
All:
I have noticed that PayPal along with Amazon.com has started a support link that allows you to make a donation. Both will redirect ALL monies to the Red Cross relief efforts that are on going. If you are having trouble with the Red Cross site these are other sites that you can use to make a donation. Use what ever site you to make any donation that you can. They can use all of the help they can get.

I was going to send some money for both the HTF server and to the Relief Fund of the American Red Cross, but I understand that the forum owners want all the money to go to the victims of the U.S disaster from now on,
So I just sent my $25 to the National Disaster Relief Fund of the American Red Cross via PayPal.

Ron and Parker,
Thank you for doing this - my earlier suggestion to use some of the money previously donated for the server as a donation was really impractical. This is a much better solution.

Thanks for the suggestion in the first place. It is one of the best ideas I have heard in a long time and I believe that we can all make a difference in helping out a little bit at a time.
