    Critical Funding Status

    Critical Funding Status

    We had to change our funding status to critical and we are currently in emergency fundraising mode. With our monthly hosting bill we received an additional invoice containing extra charges for bandwidth overuse in January - something we were not warned about in advance. We are talking to our hosting provider right now and looking into all possible options going forward. The extra charges are substantial (we are yet to be told how they are calculated) and we have until the 18th to pay the invoice or the service will be suspended. We think we'll be able to swing it until then but it is a large sum and we were not prepared for it.

    We don't want you to panic. We will hopefully work it out but we want you to know what's going on, and why.

    Every single donation we receive goes towards DAREBEE, its development and upkeep. Despite the continuing challenges we stand by our core principals and we will always do so.

    We will never have ads or sponsors and we will never charge for the content. We strongly believe that websites like DAREBEE must exist and should be the norm and not an exception. The only way to achieve that, the only way to change anything in this world is to make a stand. With everything going on in the world, we feel it's more important now than ever.

    We know we are "just a fitness website" but it means a lot more to us and we know it means more to you. We will do everything humanly possible to continue this work. We want you to know that.

        And just today I asked my husband if it would be okay to donate something, again. He agreed so I'll send some money your way.

                    This site is super important to me! It really is more than just a fitness site, it's the kind of community things like the internet should be about. I have a little, so I'm going to give a little.

                    Do your best, guys!

                        I don't have a lot extra beyond my standard monthly donation, but I recently cancelled a video streaming service subscription. So, instead of saving that money as I intended, this month it's going to you. I really value this website and all that it has given me (self-confidence, a strong body, a great online community, and the best protein bar recipe ever), and I would hate to see it shut down, even temporarily, because of an unexpected bill. Love you guys!

                            This site had done nothing short of changing my life for the better. Happy to help keep it running.

                              Team, you are contributing to keeping me alive and ... "not (yet) old".
                              So, please take the modest contribution and I'll get back to watching the celebration for the Patriot's win.
                              Let us know - say, next Sunday - if the situation has been resolved (or not).
