So I hate advertisers. I try to watch as few commercials as I can and I don’t even like it when others subject themselves to advertisers. One of the main reasons I left commercial radio was because the commercials were the show at the rate of 18 minutes per hour on most shows. “The show” was a vehicle to get you to listen to the commercials.

I’m not however, above begging for alms.

I’ve kept this blog free of advertisers so that you don’t think I’m beholden to anyone but you readers. And so I’m going to do a pitch for donations from time to time here. I’m a poor campus minister who has got a few side gigs but it’s tough to make ends meet. The blog does cost me some money to maintain and I hope that you enjoy the stuff you read here and find it valuable to your spiritual journey. I do this because I love to do it and I’ve literally done it for free for the past 6 years or so.

Regardless, I figure if the likes of Rocco Palmo over at Whispers could keep an open guitar case on his blog then I’m not above asking for a few bucks as well.

So if ya got a buck or two to spare, every little bit helps. I’d like to at least eliminate the maintenance expense for the blog and I will donate 10% of all donations to our alternative break trip to Kentucky here at UB Catholic in Buffalo, so know that your dollars will also benefit a growing ministry for college students in Buffalo.

Look to the right and you’ll see the Donate section. If you have a paypal account, you can use it there. If not, you can use your credit card regardless. A $100 donation will even garner you a free copy of my book.

It’s tough out there for everyone and I bemoan asking for anything besides what you’d like to read more of here. But hey, if you’re liking this, then I hope you might think it’s worth dropping a few bucks my way.

As always thanks for the consideration. Know of my prayers. And if you ain’t got a buck or two, keep me in your prayers. That’s always a good way to support us.

Your humble blogger, Mike Hayes
