Fireside Chat Donations

MBT Fireside Chat 600

Why donate?

The Fireside Chats are hosted on a dedicated video conference server which also does the recording. We also use the system to collect and sort questions in a non-public forum to prepare the session. Additionally Tom has access to the system to do other online interviews, some of which you find on his Youtube channel. The donations are used to cover the costs for renting this server.

How to donate?

The easiest way to donate is by using Paypal, since I also have to use Paypal to pay for the server fees. Click this link to select how much you want to donate:
  • Paypal allows you to either pay with credit card or from your bank account


If you do not want to use Paypal and are from Europe you can email me at  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and I can tell you a bank account where you could transfer your donation to.
Making bank transfers from other countries to Europe is very expensive and does not make sense for a small donation so I am still looking for alternative ways and I will add them once I found something feasible.
Thanks for supporting the Fireside Chats
