    Is there a way for me to donate cash to MacRumors via Snail mail? I dont have a CC or PayPal but I have the money sitting on my desk...

    Plus, Demi-God would look cool under my name!

    (US address is best...)

    (Also, if there is a way, I need to ask my parents if I can send money through mail, not 100% the safest way...)

    Generally, you never want to send cash in the mail, ever. Go buy a money order at your nearby convenience store.

    Good plan, money order... but a payee and the address are still necessary.

    Perhaps arn or a mod will PM the OP, as they may not wish to post the info publicly.

    the postal service really frowns upon that but i really don't see what the harm is...actually thats a good idea (another teenager without a credit card)

    edit: brilliance! .mac integration with mr! you know how you can buy itunes and order from the apple store, get iphoto books etc with your .mac account? that'd be awesome if you could donate here with your .mac account cause my mom's credit card is hooked up to my .mac for errm...auto-renewal

    Actually I think they do. I'm 14 and have a debit and a Visa.

    OK then let me rephrase that:

    I doubt my parents would let me do that.

    Also, did I mention I dont get allowance but I also dont have working papers until the winter of this year? SO my parents wouldnt put money into an account, and I wouldnt have enough for the account.

    BUT I managed to get $40 and would gladly spend it on MR.

    just have your parents do it with you, give them the money, and use thier credit card with thier permission.

    You have less than a snowball's chance of getting a mailing address from admins.

    Duff-Man says....while it is great that you'd like to contribute here financially I would say that at 13 years old with no job and therefore pretty limited resources I think there are many better things for you do with your $40...take someone "special" out to the movies or something.....or pay for some shareware that you use but have not had the $$ to pay for.....then come back here after you get a regular income and become a contributor...but for now enjoy those few $$ you have...oh yeah!

    I'll second that!

    Your signature even says that you need 200-something more for a mac mini. Well, $40 is already 20% of that!

    Me three.
    I'm sure arn appreciates the sentiment, but if it was my site I'd feel uncomfortable accepting it.
