Three dollars

Hey guys, the Charley Project is asking you for something: three dollars.

For three dollars a month, less than the price of a McDonald’s milkshake, you can help maintain one of the largest, most detailed missing persons databases online, a major tool for getting the information out there about cold cases.

If everyone who viewed the Charley Project on a daily basis donated just three dollars each month, that would be enough that the administrator could keep it as a full-time job and not have to cut back on missing persons work.

In exchange, this important tool can still be used by hundreds of thousands of people around the world, including law enforcement, journalists, podcasters, missing persons’ families, bloggers, amateur sleuths, and more.

If you can only afford to give two dollars or one dollar, that’s fine. If you can give more, terrific—any amount is appreciated.

You can use PayPal to donate to If you go to any Charley Project casefile, the PayPal button is at the top. Type in the amount, check the box that says “make this a monthly donation” and follow the steps.

It’s very easy and very, very much appreciated.

    Your donate link does not really works, I click the link, I was directed to a page displaying a simple message “Your donation was already completed.”

        Meaghan,with you getting all of these donations won’t hurt your social security benefits will it? But, come to think of it, this is better since you are now evidently able to work full time with all of this money paying you a great wage you will become a free working woman. And that will be so much better than being stuck on the government dole. I was just worried about you losing your benefits but now I am not sinse I thought it throo.

      • Meaghan October 7, 2019 / 10:26 pm

        I’m not receiving any benefits.

    What about setting up a Patreon for more exposure and aggregating supporters?

    • Meaghan May 8, 2019 / 8:42 am

      Yeah, it’s on my list. The problem is I’m not sure what to offer for rewards.

        Just spitballing here – access to your list of “to add” cases and ability to request ones be moved higher on the list, ability to request (quicker) updates for one case a month or something. Ability to request themes of the month, ability to choose the featured cases.. I’m drawing a blank after that.

    Doesn’t seem to be working now. I’m getting an error message.

    • Meaghan May 8, 2019 / 12:27 pm

      Strange. I tried with both my computer and my phone, on Chrome and Safari, and it’s working for me. It does give a “prove you’re not a robot” thing though.

  8. Sarah May 8, 2019 / 6:55 pm

    Done. It makes me happy to be able to help in some way. You do amazing work!

  9. George May 8, 2019 / 8:40 pm

  14. Mia May 21, 2019 / 1:41 pm

    I set up my recurring donation! How’s the progress going with it?

    • Meaghan May 21, 2019 / 1:42 pm

      I’m making more money than I did in my previous job at Walmart.

      • Mia May 21, 2019 / 8:31 pm

        That’s awesome, although I’m not surprised. I worked at Walmart for a short time in high school and it was awful.

      • Meaghan May 21, 2019 / 8:32 pm

        It is indeed terrible. I worked full time and sometimes brought home just $150 a week.

        Thanks for your donation!

  15. Jenny May 22, 2019 / 3:34 pm
