Please make a donation
Your donations enable me to devote my life to open source.

I love helping people and enjoy doing all the free stuff. I also find working on the free stuff motivating, it encourages me to try out new things, to push boundaries and learn from it. However, the bank made it very clear that I cannot pay my mortgage with passion and love.

Your donation gives me the opportunity to learn and change the world one line of code at a time.

Honestly, I have NO idea how much to ask you for, but is a donation of $5 something you'd be able to consider?
