Q. Why is the minimum donation amount $5.00, for supporting the Mind Trip Companion Site initiatives?
A. The minimum donation is set at $5.00, due to the fact that there is a fee applied to every PayPal transaction, of 2.9% plus $0.30 for every transaction. If $1.00 were the minimum donation amount, then the Mind Trip Companion Site would only receive $0.67 of the donation. Thus, $5.00 is set as the minimum donation amount to assure that a reasonable percent of the money donated is properly received and put towards good use in supporting our creative writing initiatives.
