* THANK YOU

The number of visitors to www.speech-language-therapy.com, and the volume of downloads increases with each passing year, with approximately 738 million Kilobytes (in 13.3 million files) downloaded in the past 12 months by 1 million unique visitors who generated 18.8 million hits. By providing the resources on the site, I (Caroline Bowen) face significant out-of-pocket expenses.

The site allows under-resourced clinicians, especially those in the developing (majority) world to access, free, information and resources they can ill afford to buy. For the 14 years from June 1998 to July 2012 www.speech-language-therapy.com was provided at my expense. Donations were sought from August 2012 because steep increases in the site's popularity drove costs up. Donations go towards hosting (but not ISP costs, time or labour).

To acknowledge their generosity, donors' names are listed here on the "thank you page". Please know that your gift contributes to helping professionals and clients in countries as diverse as India, Kenya, Romania, Vietnam and Zambia, to mention just a few, as well as in the less affluent parts of Australia, Canada, the US and other parts of the world where services struggle.

Thank you all for your contributions, and for your many kind messages,
Caroline
