If you take a look around, you'll notice there are no ads on the site. That's by choice. You see, the site used to have ads, but every time I was working on it I would see them, and it would just kill me inside. Therefore, I made the decision to eliminate all ads. Instead, the website gets supported through donations. If you are a frequent visitor to the site, you'll notice, upon one of your visits, that a modal pops up asking you to donate. It's completely voluntary, and you can easily dismiss it. Dismissing it makes sure it doesn't come back for quite some time.
I find it fascinating how supportive people can be. Whenever I made the decision to eliminate ads, I was fully prepared to bear all costs. However, users of the site have been very generous, and have contributed enough to help me with some of the cost. It's an amazing thing that I still can't quite wrap my head around. I mean, people are supporting and contributing funds to something I created. It's wild.
Donations to the website go directly to my personal PayPal account. When you donate, you should see my email address with the purpose of RandomAnime.org. This is because this is a hobby for me, not a business. There is a bit of trust involved, but I give you my word that all funds donated for the website, are used on the website. Whether that is server cost, or some other unforeseen expense. All of it gets re-invested into making the website better.
Is the donation process secure?
100% Secure. The donation process is done through PayPal; take a look at their security policies. Whenever you choose to donate, you will be redirected to their page. You can double check this by looking at the url, as well as seeing "https" prepended to their domain name.
How can I contribute?
Giving me feedback is the best way to contribute. Any of the contact forms email me directly. Let me know what you are thinking. You can also get involved on social media, spreading the word. Finally, if you wish to contribute via donating, click here to open the donation modal.
