Hello, my name is Sagrario. My username is sagrariolongas. I found LibriVox looking for free audiobooks in German and I found this project very interesting, therefore I want to contribute to it with a donation. Could you tell me a safe way to do it from Spain?
Thanks, Sagrario

Hi!
Thans for your answer! I have already donated on the Internet Archive donation page. There was the option to go from this page to PayPal. I have obtained following answer: "Thank you for your $10.52 donation to the Internet Archive. Your generous support ensures that everyone has free and open access to information, forever." How can I know if the donation has really arrived to LibriVox?
Thanks,
Sagrario

Hi Sagrario,

Did you designate that the donation was for LibriVox when you donated? If so, your donation will be held by IA for LibriVox until we have need of funds for future improvements to our site or software. If not, your donation will be to the Internet Archive itself. This is still OK because LibriVox benefits directly in many ways from IA. They host our all our audio files as well as our site (forum and catalog). In addition, we use many of the book scans that are made available on IA for our recordings. :)

Either way, let me extend thanks on behalf of all LibriVox Volunteers for your support!
