Come on people!  Make it a little easier on Mark would ya?  It's  TWO DOLLARS.   Or A DOLLAR every SIX MONTHS!  That's like, a HALF A PENNY a DAY.  Pick up those dropped pennies when you see, em.    I can't believe that anyone with a home still posts and comments when they have owed such an insignificant amount for months.  Being vegan is about more then food.  It's about living a life of honesty, integrity, compassion, helpfullness, altruism, love, and just good old common fricking sense!  Mark started a good thing here. Let's show him that we are worthy of his time and effort. Thank you.
