About donations from Patrons:
Your $10 suggested donation to SHIZEN goes to the photographers who contribute to Shizen.
Nothing is used for overhead. There is only one person that handles all donations, Jim Austin. Books are open to everyone to inspect.
We understand how some charities have taken advantage of people who want to help out.
We understand that many generous patrons tire of having their hard earned "helping out" dollars abused. Every donation is treated as an investment back to the artists/creators.
SHIZEN will always be non-commercial and freely available. The publisher's goal is to promote the photographer. The eZine will never be sold. There will never be advertising inside the eZine.
