Our Current Fundraising
For those who feel they can contribute funds to the site, please visit PayPal at the following URL:
Once there, click on "Send and Request," or just "Send" at the top of the page.
From there, depending on what the site shows you (my business account shows me something totally different from my personal account!), either click on:
"Send Money to Friends or Family," then enter an amount in USD (if possible)
Enter an amount in USD, and, under the question "What are you sending money for?" answer "I'm sending money to family or friends."
Follow the instructions in either case, and you should receive a receipt that has my email address on it as being the person to whom you sent the funds.

Don't click on that email address, just copy and paste it into PayPal... the page editor won't let me "unlink" it! This is the PayPal account that I've turned over to the site for its exclusive use for the past 4 years. Since the site is still up and running, and I fully account for the funds each year, I think you might be able to trust it. ;)
In the past, we've acknowledged donations via email, as well as inserted banners into people's profiles. This year, our three active Admins are all HORRIBLY busy with RL. r0o is working full-time and more, DQ is busy with school (I believe), and I am working 6 to 7 day weeks, almost 10 hours per day to keep my business running. It will not be possible for us to individually acknowledge donations this year. If you pay through PayPal, though, you WILL get a receipt from them. If you are truly concerned about whether or not your donation was received, you can address those concerns (or any questions) to the email address above or to

As of February 1, 2012, the following generous souls have kindly donated to the 2011/2012 fundraising drive:

If you have the opportunity to thank any of them, please do so. It is because of their support that we have this wonderful site up and running! Thank you all, so VERY MUCH!!
Our Overnight Angels
The following is a list of the ANGELS (from February 2011) who donated funds so generously and swiftly that our site was back up and running WITHIN 24 HOURS! Wherever you see these names, on other sites, or posting stories/artwork here, take a minute to thank them! Leave a review, post a comment, or just drop them a note telling them how TOTALLY AWESOME they are!!!
These people represent several continents, many countries, from around the WORLD... Dokuga is so very, VERY lucky!
*Please note: There was one donor that wishes to remain totally anonymous. I call this one my Anonymous Angel. There are also two others whose ‘online’ names I have yet to track down - their preferred names will be added as I learn them.
