A Quick Heads-Up Note About the Use of the Term "Donation"
As of mid-2017, due to escalating concerns on the part of law enforcement agencies and national governments about the use of the word "donation" by an ever-increasing number of scammers trying to hoodwink citizens out of their money for fake causes (i.e., fake charities, fake policemen's benevolent associations, fake non-profits) and of terrorist and other criminal organizations trying to accomplish money laundering by moving funds under the title of "donations", many online pay vendors have started to prohibit the use of the term "donation" when sending funds via online pay methods (and, in many cases, via bank transfers as well) unless the recipient of the "donation" is a true non-profit organization that is registered in their country of origin as a non-profit agency. As a result of these concerns, you will find that for most (but not all) online pay methods listed below, options that once were titled "donation in support of Vinny's spiritual work", or "donation to support Vinny's spiritual trips", or "donation to support the Receiving Divine Love and Grace page" have been re-worded to use terms and phrases such as "gift to support", "funds to support", or, where relevant, the term "fee", and/or other useful descriptions.

Strangely, on the opposite side of the coin, one or two online pay vendors still prefer that we use the term "donation" to denote gifts of funds to support certain efforts, and so, in the case of those particular pay vendors, we will continue, for now, to use the term donation where applicable.

My freely-offered informational and educational websites have been totally self-supported since their inception (and many of my websites were started between August 2000 and June 2003). While I offer the content on my websites freely, as a gift to all from my heart, it is quite obvious that not only did my research in these realms (and also my training, including formal education, that allowed me to offer this material in the first place) incur costs, but there are also monthly and yearly costs associated with web hosting, domain registration, etc. As you have likely noticed, I have chosen not to accept any advertising on any of my websites. As a result of all of these factors, any funds that you might choose to send toward supporting my research work and this site will be very much appreciated.

Thus, I am seeking funds to help me to support my educational websites -- even two dollars helps! If you wish to support my work, you may do so by using your credit card, ATM card, debit card, or transfer from your bank account, via fully secure means. To send funds, please click the link below, or use one of the other payment methods listed below.
All transactions are secure; in all cases, you get to choose the dollar amount!

     Thank you very much!
