The Happy Gluten-Free Vegan site is and always has been free. We don’t hide our recipes behind a paywall, or subject you to annoying pop-up videos that you have to wait for 30 seconds before you can close them. We don’t litter your screen with banners, or annoy you with robots asking if they can help you.
But it does cost us money to run the site, and resources and time to moderate our Facebook groups, which currently serve over 100,000 vegans. If you are a member of our Vegan Costco or Vegan Instant Pot groups on Facebook, then you know that large Facebook groups are a big target for spammers and individuals with an agenda, people who think that everybody needs to hear their opinion on, well, everything. Every day we spend time blocking new spammers, dealing with removing rude comments, blocking people who violate the rules, and taking abuse from those people (don’t ask us how many times we’ve been told to go f*ck ourselves!), and generally trying to keep the group on course. As you might imagine, moderating a group of over 70,000 vegans (the Vegan Costco group) and another of nearly 30,000 (the Instant Pot group) takes a lot of time and effort.
If you feel you have received some value from our site or Facebook groups, won’t you please donate $5.00 or more to help us keep this site and the Facebook groups going and free? Thank you!
