Buy Us a Coffee

Running IHS takes us many hours every single week. The costs add up. Last year we setup a Buy Us a Coffee page, which allows people to help cover the expenses. We’ve been blown away by the generous response. Not only were people willing to pitch in, but all of the kind notes and encouragement brought more than a few tears to TB’s eyes. If you’d like to support us, click here. Every cup helps immensely!

Have a wonderful day!

TB & Miranda
