Michel Bauwens: Please Donate to Peer-to-Peer | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

ROBERT STEELE: There are two people I know personally that I think merit our total regard and financial support within our means. I myself am without means — no salary, no pensions, no savings — but I have just given $100 to the Peer to Peer Foundation as I have previously given money to Tom Atlee and the Co-Intelligence Institute. I urge one and all to visit PayPal (where credit and debit cards are welcome) and use this email todonate@p2pfoundation.net to donate to the Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Foundation so that Michel and his good works can carry on with our support: . Naturally donations to Earth Intelligence Network are also appreciated, they pay for web services and ink cartridges, I receive nothing personally from donations; use the Donate button here at Phi Beta Iota.
