As you are already aware ipernity is under threat of closure.

However, I’m pleased to say that a crowdfunding campaign has been initiated to raise funds to secure the platform's short term future in the first instance, but ultimately with a view to acquiring it for the community.

Many have already made a donation, myself included, and the campaign has got off to a great start, but there is still a way to go and less than a fortnight to reach the target … otherwise the site will almost certainly close.

So, I would urge you, if you haven't already made a pledge, but want ipernity to survive to follow the link below and donate as much as you can afford.

Help Save Ipernity

This is a unique opportunity then for everyone who loves ipernity and who wants it to not only survive, but to become somewhere we can call home for many years to come to help secure its future. Yes, there are still questions to be answered and hurdles to be overcome, but together we really can make a difference.

Please support the campaign in any way you can, be that by making a donation, encouraging your friends and family to do so, or even just by mentioning it on social media such as Facebook or Twitter.

Best wishes

I like your banner in black and white or sepia... it reminds me of an overhang near Blanchard Springs Caverns in Arkansas. Thanks for joining Bible Verses Illustrated -- where verses are either on the photo or in the title or description. Enjoy your ephemera!

Smiley, thanks very much! I appreciate your kind words here, and I'm grateful for all your day-to-day faves and gracious comments. I enjoy sharing the ephemera and photos from my collection, and I hope that the background info helps to convey how interesting and entertaining I find the material to be. I must say, too, that I admire your collection as well, and I always discover amusing, intriguing, and thought provoking items among your images. Thanks for all you share, too!
