Amsterdam Fund

I hate the idea of doing this. It's like begging and brings the whole project down to lame asking for money site.


Click here for the quicktime version.


I'm starting to think £150 was slightly over the top. The tickets there and back cost £70. (now) So im not sure how much am i meant to take there? it's it expensive? How much is the transport? and so on. I'll make one of those fund progress bars things to show you how im getting along...sorry for asking.



Ok, It wont work if i put the donate button in this entry. so just use the donate button on the side bar.

    Oh Ian, don't feel bad about asking for money. No one has $183.00 to go dancing off to Amsterdam.

    Good luck.

    I went to Amsterdam earlier on this year. I wouldn't say the price of anything is really dear or cheap.

    I went for three days and spend nearly £150. That was buying quite nice food for breakfast, lunch and dinner and spending money on seeing all the sights.

    One thing you definately must do is buy a public transport card-thing. Strippenkarts or something they're called. It'll save you money and hassle with getting around.

    I'll put 5 pounds on that.

    say...does that get me some advertising? ;)

    just give me a wave when you get there, I can't go.

    Hey Randy!

    You dont need a PayPal account to donate. You can just click on the PayPal button and enter the amount and just under that it say's "If you do not currently have a PayPal account Click Here" and just click that button and you can use a normal credit card. (maybe debit too..im not 100% on that)

    Thanks all!

    I donated a little something (ed..AT..novia..DOT..net). If you feel the need to thank me, just check out my videoblog and shoot some video in Amsterdam that can be used in my collaborative video project!
