Sit : Love : Give

Portrait of beautiful young woman meditatingWildmind recently went ad-free. The income from carrying ads was certainly useful — it costs a lot to run a site this size — but carrying advertising here seemed both esthetically and ethically ugly. So they’ve gone! And we feel great about it!

However, it takes about 80–100 hours a month to curate, write, edit, and post the articles you read here, and if you enjoy and benefit from what we do, we’d ask you to consider making a regular donation.

Dana, or giving, is an ancient Buddhist tradition, and we’d much rather rely on the generosity of you, our readers, than bombard you with advertising.

We’re calling this project “Sit : Love : Give.” It’s what we do. We medite; we cultivate love; we try to influence the world for good through our website. And it’s what we hope you’ll do, too: meditate; cultivate love; give something back.

The content on Wildmind will remain free and open! This isn’t a paywall. It’s just an opportunity to show love, generosity, and solidarity with those who want to make the world a better place through the cultivation of mindfulness and compassion.

So please consider becoming a subscriber and supporting us with a recurring monthly donation of your choosing, from the equivalent of a cup of coffee at $3, to a fancy dinner at $100.





Or you can also become a one-time benefactor with a single donation of any amount:

I’ll be subscribing in a day or two once my new account is verified through PayPal and I can put some money there. I find much value here and it is worth more than every penny!

I’d very much like to subscribe, but I’d also like to avoid changing money. Is there a way to subscribe in GBP or would it have to get changed into US$ in the end anyway?

Hi, Patricia.

Thank you for thinking about us. Your second guess was right, and the transaction would be converted into dollars. There’s no conversion fee, and in fact there’s no fee for you at all, although PayPal does deduct something at our end.

All the best,
Bodhipaksa
