We are trying something new this week. Instead of having a sponsor pay for the video, we are going to ask our fans to chip in. We love Vimeo, the site that hosts our videos. They have come out with new technology that allows viewers to throw a few dollars in a tip jar when they view content they like. Many of you have expressed interest in supporting our videos but haven’t been able to pay for the full cost of the video sponsorship. The tip jar allows you to leave whatever you can pay. Hopefully if enough viewers throw a few dollars our way, we can keep using this technology to pay for the production of the videos.

Here is a link to the video with the tip jar button:

The tip jar button is just below the video on the vimeo website. Just click on it and enter your credit card or PayPal info. Your contributions are private. Even we can’t see who gives what.

We also thought that it might be nice to pick a non-profit sponsor and try to help them out through this effort as well. This week we chose the Rifle Animal Shelter. The Rifle Animal Shelter does an amazing job caring for homeless pets in our community. We are excited to donate 10% of the total income from this week’s game to the Rifle Animal Shelter to help them continue their great work.
