Great question! Visit our donation form at https://www.wildbluedot.com/donate/
You! Wild Blue Dot currently has no advertising and we want to keep it that way. All of our support is derived from reader donations.
Your donation directly funds this site. Your support means we can publish our independent, advert-free site, community and blog devoted to all issues: environmental. This includes:
We accept donations via PayPal or credit cards through PayPal’s credit or debit card portal which means you may see these details on your card statement. If you have any questions about your donation or would like to cancel a recurring payment, contact us.
Yes. PayPal uses Secure Sockets Layer technology to encrypt all data submitted to and from our donations web page. SSL renders donors’ personal information, including credit card information, unreadable to any outsiders. SSL is supported by all major web browsers, including Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. (To find out if your browser is connected to a secure transaction server, look for a locked gold padlock in the lower right-hand corner of your IE or Firefox browser.) Additionally, your personal information will be stored on PayPal’s servers, which are heavily guarded, both physically and electronically. To further shield your credit card numbers, PayPal does not directly connect its firewall-protected servers to the internet.
Please, please contact us.
Another great question! Yes, on our donations web page, you can schedule a monthly or yearly gift to Wild Blue Dot. You know you want to.
