Hi all and thank you for taking the time once more to come and catch up.
We ask you here today to give you an update following our recent decision to move a lot of the websites content to a members only area accessable to Charity donation makers only.
Q. A popular decision ?
A. Certainly not with all
Q. The right decision ?
A. We 100% stand by and believe that we can do some genuine good with the site and the help of our great followers. So yes
Wether you chose to opt in or not i hope that the work we do will go on to make a few sit up and think, wow the WIR team have really done good.
We don’t expect everyone to initially understand our decision but we sincerely hope that given time we can add to the supporters and turn a few heads of those that oppose.
We have deliberated long and hard over the payment options and i remain adamant that it will be affordable to all as i’d like to encourage you all to join us in creating something special.
The first question in need of an answer is that of how often will people need to pay ?
Well here is the answer and i’m hoping you will agree that its the right one.
We will only be asking for a one off donation for the entire year.
We arrived at this decision somewhat helped by a recently run poll and also by deliberation between the team and myself as we strive to deliver the best that we possibly can and remain affordable to all.
So now the big question
HOW MUCH ?
I have largely tried to ignore the amounts that i see many of twitters paid services charging and that is because aside from the fact many of them are not worthy of a penny, we do not see them as figures that are affordable to all.
We wanted to arrive at a figure that is managable for everyone and one that many of the subscribers will be happy to donate safe in the knowledge that every penny will make a difference for someone less fortunate.
That figure will be £25 per year. Yes thats right per year. A one off fee that will help others and hopefully be repayed to you all through the service you will recieve.
Each quarter that passes this figure will decrease accordingly for new subscribers
Further to that decision we have also decided to get the service kickstarted the initial donation required for subscription until JAN 31ST 2018 will be just £10
Summary of payments
Initial payment until 31st Jan 2018 – £10
One year subscription Feb 1st 2018 – Jan 31st 2019 – £25 (decreasing quarterly by £5 for any new subscribers)
When do we go live?
At present the Members area is open to all using password WIR2017. This is to enable all of our followers to see the changes as they are being made and also to invite you all to make your decision based on the product.
The free trial period will cease as we become fully live to subscribers on Monday 24th July whereupon only those that have subscription will receive the full Members package.
Who will benefit ?
Well so far we have chosen 2 charities and would like to add a couple more.
The chosen two are
You can click on either of these to be redirected to their relative websites and im sure you will agree, both are very worthy causes.
Of the other charities i know that Sandy is keen to add an Autism charity and i’d like to get the followers to chose one more.
So if you see the tweets please react and get involved.
What do you get for your money ?
Well first and foremost you get to help a few wonderful and worthy good causes.
