A Worthy Cause (IMHO)
Long time readers will recall that one of the things I like to do throughout the year is drop off the occasional hot or cold drink (depending on the season) as well as the odd bag of cake or cookies for the soldiers I pass along my daily commute.
Up to this point these small gestures have been funded entirely by the ad revenue generated by this site. However, as the revenue from the sidebar ads has been, ahem, a little slow in the past couple of months... I was hoping that some of you might like to step up and join me in participating in this small, but meaningful, gesture.
Needless to say, if you already support one of the many fine organizations that are doing nice things for our soldiers, please continue doing that.
But as the hot summer months approach (it got up to 40C /104F yesterday), I'm trying to deliver cold drinks as often as possible to the men and women stationed all along my commute route... and your contributions will help me do this even more often.

Can you create a donate button that accepts Shekels?

I was more than happy to donate, but just want to warn other Brits, I got an appalling exchange rate with payPal, and wish I'd seen what Visa or Mastercard were offering.
Meanwhile David, slake those soldiers' thirsts :).

Can one choose the currency? I am thinking of the exchange rate too?

Tehillah ... Sadly I had to choose a currency and the default was dollars. I guess no matter what, someone is going to get a bad rate. :-(
chairwoman... Your donation is deeply appreciated. I promise to use the fund you all are endowing as frugally as possible. All I can suggest is that anyone with a paypal account can go in and send money directly from their account to mine in any currency they want. My email address is the name of this site at gmail dot com.
Ilana-Davita ... As I said to chairwoman, if you have a paypal account you can send the funds directly in whatever currency you like.
