For those of you who enjoyed El Inglés’ recent essays, I have a special request: that you make a contribution to him for his work.
The easiest way would be PayPal but many of you don’t use PP. Thus, I propose a work-around for those donors, also.
For any who can’t (or won’t) use PayPal, we’ll take on the challenge of making sure your donations sent via snail mail reach him. This will be roundabout, since you’ll have to contact us for our address and we, in turn, will have to forward any donations that come in this way. That means we’ll be collecting them, letting you know your gift arrived and then making a PayPal donation directly to El Ingles in a lump sum… or several lumpish amounts.
Given the level of comments on his posts, I am sure many of you are willing to contribute a modest sum to permit him to continue his modest mode of living.
From the man himself:
I would like to express my thanks to all those who have participated in the discussion prompted by the three–part essay I recently posted. I have read most of the many comments, spread across various threads, that people have been kind enough to contribute. The discussion they constitute is too long and complex for me to respond to coherently here and now. Nonetheless, I would like to express my gratitude to those who have engaged intellectually with what I wrote.
If you feel that the essay in question, or, indeed, any of my other essays, has been of value to you, I would ask you again to consider making a small donation to my social welfare fund via the PayPal link on this page. All donations are appreciated and will make it more likely that El Inglés will produce further writings in the future. Again, my thanks to those who contributed to the discussion of my essay, whether they agreed with it, disagreed with it, or, as is more probable, were somewhere in the middle…
