For the love of HOT

Dear reader, in the name of love for HOT and to keep the good ship HOT afloat, we’re going to come right out and write it out loud: we ask that you consider giving us a donation. Our coffers will soon be bare, so we’re on a mission to raise some funds – and one of the ways to do this on our ‘HOT Plan of Action’ is to ask you, our reader/subscriber for a financial contribution.
