Hi All,

It is once again coming up on the time of year when we are due to renew the webspace and possibly the chat room if we can gather enough funds for both, to continue to provide a good home for Beating the Beast. It goes without saying that this of course costs money, so any donation you can make to help us out with the the costs would be greatly appreciated and will help us continue to keep Beating the Beast the very special place that it is.

You can donate here: http://www.beatingth....com/donate.htm

Anyone preferring to send a check or money order can PM me for an address to send it to.

Thanks to everyone! :rounduphug:

love Jillie, Sheila and Bee xxxxx

Just wanted to say thanks to all those who contributed funds to help keep this forum operating. I also wanted to thank the admins who have given financial support over the years we've been online. Without everyone's support we wouldn't be here today.

This place means so much to so many, your efforts mean more than you may ever know. Thank you all. You are all heroes in my eyes. :D
