Congratulations! You graduate!

Balloon HQ - Everything you ever wanted to know about latex and foil balloons for parties and entertainment.
We hope you enjoyed reading the Guide to Balloons and Ballooning and we hope you learned a lot of new tips and tricks of the trade. We've put untold hours of work into this site, and we would love to hear what you thought of it. Please take a moment and tell us.

This site was always intended to be free to everyone and we don't forsee any change to that plan in the near or distant future. However, Balloon HQ has grown to the point that it takes a huge amount of time to maintain the site and keep the mailing lists running smoothly. We enjoy what we do and we want to continue sharing balloon-related information, but somehow we gotta pay the rent.

A great deal of thought went into determining just how we can justify our efforts. As an experienced street performer, Larry thought the solution to the problem was passing the hat. It's fed him before, so why not now? We don't like the idea of charging for the use of web sites. Let's face it; if you find Balloon HQ while strolling along the infobahn, you'll only stay if you like what you see. Well, that's what street performing is all about. Everyone can watch, and no one has to feel obligated to stay or tip the performer.

So, the decision is yours. Your visit to Balloon HQ is anonymous. We don't use the now infamous "browser cookies" to keep track of people, so there's no way for us to know if you're taking advantage of the information here or not. Of course, we're nice guys and we won't be offended if you come back a hundred times without tipping. However, if you choose to support our continuing efforts to make Balloon HQ the most comprehensive collection of toy and decorative balloon info on the net, your contributions will be greatly appreciated.

What can you give?

That depends on who you are, how you use this service, and what you feel you can give. Take a minute and figure out what Balloon HQ is worth to you. Is it worth the cost of a magazine subscription? Is it more useful than that cool balloon book or video you've been eyeing for a while? Does your business depend on the success of the entire balloon industry? Well then, here are some suggested ways you can contribute.

Thank you and happy ballooning!

The Balloon HQ Editors, Larry, Mark and Sheena
