Wanting your Advice.

All

Last season I had many people offer up donations. Just because they really liked my christmas display. I turned them down.

This year I have been struggling to make repairs and complete some of the projects that I really want to add to my display. I have been bothered by the increase in costs of copper, wood, motors, lights and electrical costs. I believe many of you may be in the same boat.

What I am about to consider may spark some spirited and at some times heated debate. so please try to keep emotional outburst in check...

I am seriously considering(and struggling) with the idea of a DONATION BOX to try to off set these costs. Trust me, This is not an easy decision and i'm am not taking this lightly.
I want people in these hard times to enjoy the display. However, the costs to operate it are becoming increasingly more difficult. A donation box could help off set display operation costs and may alleviate some of the repair and build costs.

After much consideration I decided to get YOUR (my friends') advice. If your willing to give me honest heartfelt advice please reply to the thread.

Thanks
