Let's Make Robots!

Did you donate already? UPDATED


Hi all, sorry for the site not having a clear communication. This is what happens when everyone helps, and time passes - we get old links no longer working, and misleading information..

It's impossible to keep updating who runs what to everyone all the time - many people are helping, new mails are written every day, things change..

One thing has been, and is the same through all times, till present (October 2014): When bills have to be paid, and there's not made enough money by various deals and donations, it's the founder / Webmaster who pays the bills.

Any help is always very much appreciated, and Paypal is the easiest way:


Let us know if you have donated to support LMR. Or why you won't.

As we all know LMR is founded and financed by a few volunteers. It is their basic work that gives us the ability to share our passion. Since our number has significally grown and the demand on bandwith and computational power has grown too it is time for us to give back something on top of fame and honour for the founders and drivers of LMR to keep this idea going, to enable new inventions and whatever is needed to present our together-made robot projects to the outside world.

Your small donation makes the big difference. So go ahead and individually do something good for all of us. 

Keep in mind that LMR goes on and on so you can donate once, twice, weekly, monthly or yearly. Its good to know that LMR has some research & development budget to drive innovation.

And here you find the new Donation page.

While I don't want to discourage anyone from donating, I suggest that if you are a minor, you check with your parents before donating.

I agree that if you care about LMR, you can express how much it means to you, and how much you've learned, to your parents or guardians. You might even wind up getting a nice donation from them. ; j

You can always ask your parents, older brother or sister, aunt and oncle, grandma and granddad to donate for you. LMR is important for you - so it's important for them too, right?

DONE............. HI EVERYONE!!!

I can't donate as I don't have a credit card (don't want one either) to get a paypal account. But I have a solution to help out in my way. I'll just buy a bunch of stuff from yourduino which is kind of the same. I'm in to building junkbots, but I'll make an exception for a good cause!

It's a bit of a bummer that donation is for paypal/creditcard owners only. It's understandable since paypal is the micropayment that has succeeded over a lot of other payment possibilities.

How about walking into a bank to make a money transaction to the LMR bank-account? Is that possible in the USA?

Can you specify in the order of Yourduino somewhere that you are LMR's psychofreaky? Any chance to tell Terry that you buy due to support us?

Do you have a surname?

That does help with the ongoing costs for the site, so thank you.

Let us know how your shopping experience with yourduino.com is.

Done!  My name is Ray (Korel) . It's a pleasure for me to support a great robots and other projects builders website. I would like to take this opportunity to thank LMR webmasters and members for their great work and generosity to help people with their projects. 

I'm a retired man since a few years already and I don't consider myself being a robot builder, but I enjoy reading everyones projects everyday or whenever I can. Keep up the good work for us.


Thank's Ray!

Making a one time donation is the easy part. Keeping LMR going long term is the hard part.

Without a long term plan our donations are simply not going to be enough for true self sustainability.

I don't have an answer for you guys beyond suggesting everyone donate more than $5 each.

That is true, of course. Long term financing is a challenge. Right now LMR gets money from the sales of the start here robot kit, and from the yourduino.com shop. I believe Frits is working on more stuff for on going costs.

What he's asked for some help on is getting LMRv4 development paid for, which is what we are focusing on here. So the money donated through the donate button is going to that.

Just so people are clear where the money is going.
