Fediverse instances are mostly run by unpaid volunteers who rely on donations to keep going. It's not just the time they give, but the running costs of the servers that they pay for.
If you use the Fediverse, please consider donating to the instance you signed up on. Donations help keep the Fedi ad-free and privacy-friendly.
On Mastodon, you can find details on how to donate by clicking "About this server" in the bottom left corner of the screen.
@feditips also make sure your instance admin isn't censoring your feed before you donate! don't give money to those who would decide for you what you are allowed to read and see.
@obsolete29 Been meaning to set this up for a while! Thanks so much for your support that spurred me to get this Patreon up and running:
Discover & explore Mastodon with no ads and no surveillance. Publish anything you want on Mastodon: links, pictures, text, audio & video.
All on a platform that is community-owned and ad-free.
