KK- It’s That Time Of Year

update 4:58pm 10/31/11, First off I want to thank all you for contributing.  I tried to email each one of you but may have missed a few but wanted to make sure your donation will be put to good use.

In this very tough economy, especially here in Michigan and other parts of North America, people are watching how they spend any additional funds they may run across.

Again, thanks to everyone and this post will become un-sticky sometime tomorrow morning.

Twice a year, right about now and again during the playoffs, Kukla’s Korner asks you, the KK member, reader or subscriber to help us out financially with whatever you can.

I am going to make this short.  You notice when you visit KK, you don’t get any of those annoying pop ads (under/over), or full page ads or auto play audio ads plus no flashing ads that take up valuable load resources.

Those types of ads pay-out much more than the ads you see now, but I have always felt I owe it to the folks who visit KK to keep it as clean as possible.

KK also continues to grow, and our hosting service just jumped by 33% in the last month but should be okay now for the next two years.

Any amount you can donate through PayPal is greatly appreciated.  Just imagine if every who stops by KK today donated $1, I would not have to do this for at least the next two years.

With that, please use the Donate button below (or on the right sidebar) and you do not need to have an account with them. They accept numerous ways to donate, including Visa, Mastercard and American Express.

Thank you and this post will remain at the top of page but hopefully it will be removed quickly.

I do appreciate this site, but “no auto-play” ads?  Bad timing for that declaration with the obnoxious Movie Central On Demand ad blasting its pitch every time my mouse scrolls over it, which is pretty much every time I come to the site.

The cool thing is I get a lot more back than what I can afford to give.  Thanks, Paul.

Definitely the first place I stop for all my hockey news.  Your knowledgeable fan base is a testament to the quality of your work.  A little something, you know, for the effort.
