Just like learning a new language, hosting your own website can be a challenge. It can take a lot of time and resources. I don't believe in filling this space with advertisements. Therefore, I do the best I can, with what I have available. In order to help maintain it and expand, I need support. This can come in many forms and I am very open to any input, and ideas. It would mean the world to me if my students of the past, present or future, could take the time to find out how they can support me by scrolling through this page. Any help is greatly appreciated. Have a look below to find out how you can donate to my site while donating to a great cause, or how you can help without a donation. Both are greatly appreciated.
Donate to my Site:
Until December 31, 2020, I will be donating 75% of all funds raised to Janie's Fund. This fund is very near and dear to my heart.
Janie’s Fund is a philanthropic initiative created by Steven Tyler in partnership with Youth Villages to bring hope and healing to girls who have suffered the trauma of abuse and neglect. Steven first gave voice to this cause with his hit “Janie’s Got a Gun,” and his establishment of the fund ensures that these vulnerable girls will have an enduring voice for years to come. Janie’s Fund has two important goals: to bring much-needed awareness to the issue of abuse and neglect of children and to generate financial support to ensure that girls receive the most effective services available to help them overcome the trauma and pain of abuse. Contributions to Janie’s Fund support proven programs at Youth Villages that have demonstrated effectiveness in addressing the trauma of sexual abuse in children and the expansion of these services to help even more girls.

For 2020 I have set the goal for €1500. This is an ambitious target, but it will fund my website for the year while giving €1125,00. to Janie's Fund. If we beat the target, 100% of the overage will go to Janie's Fund. If we miss the target, then 75% of whatever is raised will go to Janie's Fund. On January 1st, 2021, I will make the donation and post it here. On top of that, every donator will receive credit for their donation in My Supporters section below. Please let me know if you would like to remain anonymous.
Lastly, let's move on to the perks of donating.
€2 - €10 = A linkable credit in My Supporters Page
€11 - €25 = Giftable online support with your studies. (E-mail, SMS, WhatsApp, etc.)
€26 - €49 = A giftable voucher for 30% off any English lesson package with me.

Support Me for Free
Although support through donations is greatly appreciated, there are a number of ways to support me without dipping into your wallet. These are simple little things that also have a huge impact on running my site. Any help with them goes a long way in creating the collaborative learning community I have in mind. If you have any ideas on other ways you could support my project, I am open to discussing them. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me. I am always eager to collaborate.

Support My Supporters
Last but certainly not least, I am very grateful for all the support of my collaborators and donors.
Support comes in many forms. From brainstorming to photography to web development tips to blog writers, all collaborations are fun and insightful.
Please take a moment to support my supporters below, and don't hesitate to contact me with any ideas if you would like to become a supporter.
Carolin has been a student of mine since 2018. Over that time, she has transformed from student to collaborator. From sharing her network to providing beautiful photos for my website, and last but not least, adding diversity and creativity to my blog. Several of my students have enjoyed reading her blogs as well as admiring her photography skills. It has been my pleasure working with her, and I hope you will help support her by visiting her website and checking out her Instagram.
Peter has been a student of mine since 2016. I can't begin to explain how proud I am with how far he has come with his English skills. Peter has contributed some great articles to my blog for other students and visitors to enjoy, and I love his style of telling a story. He has also supported me in my YouTube and media projects by helping me choose the best equipment for my needs while keeping inside a tight budget. You can check out his blogs here on my site. And I'm sure he would greatly appreciate a visit to his Twitch page for streaming and Instagram for some great pictures.
