Donations warmly welcomed

Gentle readers are invited, nay encouraged, to “subscribe” to my Essays in Idleness. May I humbly suggest $50 per calendar year, or whenever you are feeling flush.

You may also wish to multiply that, to cover for readers who are too poor, or too mean, to contribute for themselves. Ten times is good! A hundred times is better! And anything will be gratefully received!

Er, think of the benefits! …

You will be supporting a penurious and mendicant author who is, thanks to his unique and refreshing Weltanschauung, no longer employable in the Main Stream Media.

And while I cannot offer days off Purgatory, or even a tax exemption, you will acquire cubic acres of my goodwill!

Then think of the guilt, if you don’t send money!

Meanwhile, be advised that I have no Pay Wall, nor Collection Department, nor administrative bureaucracy of any kind. So if you do decide to go on reading my Idleposts gratis, I have absolutely no way to stop you.


“So how do I pay?” you are surely asking.

My fellow Canadians may try “Interac e-Transfer,” if they bank online. Send to this email address — — and your money is automatically deposited in my bank, which pings back an electronic acknowledgement.

Or, you could simply write an old-fashioned cheque (“check” to Americans), and mail it to: David Warren, 1110–21 Maynard Avenue, Toronto, Ontario, Canada M6K 2Z8.

Or, a money order, for that matter; but note that it must be an “international money order” if from outside Canada.

Finally, I have restored the PayPal button, below. Users should be aware that the company will deduct both transmission and fixed fees from what I will receive. But it is very convenient for senders.

And God bless you indeed, my beloved patrons, for sustaining this wee, counter-cultural enterprise!
