Why should I donate?

Good question. First, ask yourselves the following questions;

  1. Have you saved money through something you've read in the Bodrum Bulletin?
    • Have you managed to grab a bargain via a classified advert?
    • Have you used a discount that we pubished in the discount section?
    • Did you make use or an honest tradesman or business which you found in the Readers' Recommendation Directory?
    • Have we made you aware of flights or other travel information that you otherwise didn't know about?
    • Have you learnt something about your computer that's saved a call out to your computer fixer?
    • Have you saved money through our advice on interest rates, and articles on deposit accounts?
    • Have you used one of our online calculators?
  2. Are you an advertiser who's taken advantage of reaching over 1,400 readers?
  3. Do you enjoy accessing the webcam and weather station pages to get live information on the weather in Yalıkavak, Bodrum.
  4. Have you met up with other people through events published on the Bulletin?

OK, so how do I donate?

It's easy, all donations are taken through PayPal, however you do not need to have a PayPal account (you just need a credit card). Note: all donations are taken through PayPal for your safety.
