Why I now have a tip jar … …

Featured

Tl;dr : There is a ko-fi tip jar here. Please tip if you like my translations.

The long winding part:

I haven’t had a tip jar in the past years despite several people offering to tip. But things have sort of changed in the last two months. I’m a private person so I won’t go into my situation. I just … … am facing an unexpected reduction in income which I did not plan for. So the tip jar is now here because every bit helps. I’ve struggled a bit over the last month and a bit but one always ends up bowing to the power of jingshi (money).

I do have one goal up on that page right now. It is for reaching $100 and maybe I’ll set up early access or something. Any suggestions are welcome.

World of Cultivation: Finale Event

Hello everybody,

 

As you are aware, World of Cultivation will be coming to an end in little over a week. The entire time Wyhcwe and I, WanderingGummiOfDoom, have worked on this project we have never accepted “donations” for our work. However, we wish to commemorate the conclusion of the project by crowdfunding for a charity.

What we want to ask of our readers today, is that you donate to Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. They are a charity dedicated to fighting illiteracy by providing young children with books. We have selected this charity for the following reasons: the appropriateness of the charity given our work, and that the charity operates in the same countries the vast majority (75%+) of our readers are from: Australia, Canada, the UK, and USA.

Below is the link to the donation page for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. We thank you in advance if you decide to participate and donate. Feel free to write a comment under the post if you choose to donate.

Cheers and thank you for all the support,

Wyhcwe and WanderingGummiOfDoom

 

P.S.

We will not be releasing the chapters faster for donations. One a day, start to finish y’all.
