My suggestion is an optional [insert amount here] box during signup that will allow you to pay the 2$ a month in advance at any amount. I used a prepaid card and wanted to contribute the whole balance to you which I knew was around 20$ even if shy a few pennies.. luckily it wasn't under 20$ cuz i wouldve then had to contribute at the rate of 2$ a month rather than what I was willing to offer all at once. Ty for your cont. efforts on such a necessary & great project!

When asked if she was going to try and replant it; she laughed and said she thought it was hopeless.

Coincidentally the same terminology ppl threw around about me and my attempt to overcome the heroin addiction I'd struggled with for over a decade.

And the hopeless rose? ...
