Like everyone else, Ciro Santilli's ultimate dream is to have the money to be able to work full time on his passions, while at the same time remaining in a low obligations setting.
Ciro's current ambitions require him to remain in developed countries, because Ciro wants to document advanced science and technology by liaising with top universities, and there is not as much high technology in poor countries.
Therefore, you have to ask yourself: does your contribution considerably help Ciro reach his full time independence goal?
And since the areas that Ciro has contributed to a somewhat niche, it is not currently realistic that a medium sized community will reach the goal with small sized donations.
It is for this reason that Ciro currently recommends a very all or nothing approach.
For more intermediate values, consider instead donating to people doing awesome projects while living in cheaper locations, where such intermediate amounts could be much more significant.

If after all this you still want to make a one-time donation of intermediate size, Ciro won't fight you further, please first contact Ciro to arrange a payment method. Bitcoins accepted.
