After the recent blackout and the troubles it created, many of our users contacted us and expressed their interest in supporting Chakra financially. This post is for all of you that wish in one way or another to donate money and help Chakra to be self-sustainable by its users. We can only state how deeply amazed we are by your commitment and greatly appreciate your support and love for this distribution! This is one more reason to work harder to reach our goals.
As you probably know, Chakra is a completely community based distribution and all our contributors and developers are working in their free time to provide it. Thus, the only expenses we have at the moment are for maintaining the main server, through which we provide you Chakra and all the surrounding services. Due to the generous sponsorship by HOST1PLUS, we get a significant discount for the server, with the final cost being around 70 EUR (100 USD) per month, which sums up to 840 EUR (1200 USD) per year.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our mirror providers for hosting Chakra mirrors around the world as well as our user "Dezponia" for providing us with a build and backup server for our packages and website. We will soon have a dedicated page on our website for all our supporters, so if you, your organization or company would like to donate or help by setting up a mirror, we will make sure you are acknowledged through this.
There will also be a webpage regarding donations, with links to these accounts and all related information:
Direct donations through credit cards or bank accounts
Micro-donations on scheduled intervals
