The CI Global Calendar has been developed initially on a volunteer base. Many volunteers have dedicated uncountable hours of work to research and develop the CI Global Calendar.
Entirely volunteer-run, the Calendar is aimed to be a totally free service for its users of the global CI community and to operate on a gift economy basis.
A little bit of money can go a long way and help us to cover the inevitable operational costs of the project. Those are servers, data storage, paying for the site domain, some small administration and paperwork tasks like stamps, print outs, etc. and refunding some original costs that were associated with the realisation of the project such as website programming and design.
If you can and want to help us financially, just donate through PayPal.
As per a gift economy, donations of gifts are very welcome as well and will go into a shared "gift box" that we will tap into when offering a reward to our volunteers for their work. Those gifts can be a free entrance to your event, to a workshop, a reduction on the entrance fee to your festival, dance products or clothing that you make, etc.
If you want to discuss this with us via email, you are most welcome to get in touch with the project manager.
