Helping Support Sorcerer's Place

It's been a while since my last call for help... A reminder how you can help Sorcerer's Place is in order, since the donations I rely on to keep this site running have been few lately. Please check out this exhaustive list for all the ways you can help support Sorcerer's Place. I hope you will take the time to read through it and see if you are willing to do something to help.

My thanks go to all who have donated to SP in the past, or bought anything through the Sorcerer's Place stores. If it weren't for you folks to help me cover the monthly costs, SP probably wouldn't be around any more.
