Please be advised that quitpaxil.org is
a one person operation and not a non-profit organization. It
is in fact a no-profit, or not for profit undertaking. Since it is
not a registered charity (and due to the bureaucracy involved will
likely not become one) I can not provide donors with a tax
receipt. In case of a business donation, I can, however, make
out a receipt for services rendered, if such services, e.g.
consultations, did indeed take place.
Who should NOT donate?
- persons who are presently going
through withdrawal. It is natural to want to help out in a
moment of relief. I,myself , once wanted to marry the nurse who
injected me with pain killers after an operation. In short, your
ability to make a rational decision is impaired.
- ANY person living on or below
their respective national average salary. In no way must
there be any sacrifices made! Remember that this site will keep
running in one way or another no matter what level of outside
- any person residing in a less
developed country. There are better ways to serve your
Who might consider donating
- any business who has profited from
information provided by this site.
- any individual who, with help of
this site, has overcome the withdrawal process and is financially
- pharmaceutical executives with a

the above guidelines offend some people. They are not meant to be
paternalistic, but will instead allow me to sleep at night.)
What will the money be used for?
As a poet/writer my income at this time derives mostly from
graphic design contracts and manual labor, I have only a set amount
of hours and resources which I can devote to this project. Any
donations would allow for the following:
- a re-design of the web-site (the present one was finished in
one afternoon and it shows it)
- expansion of web-site topics
- expanded research
- press releases other publicity measures
- creation of sister sites
- computer equipment and upgraded net access.
- more interaction, e.g. live chat sessions
At present I have to meet a certain financial target every
working week. Although I have little need for material things, the
banks are demanding their student loans back. Thus, every Can$100
raised would allow me to free up one day to devote exclusively to
Only Money ?
Offers of help have been coming in from all directions. I am
working on a plan to somehow utilize them. However, the
co-ordination would, at this time, be too complex. Further, I would
have to do some form of background check on any volunteers,
something for which I do not have time. Non-monetary items would be
very welcome. Specifically, computer hardware or software might come
in handy. Guppies will also be gladly accepted.
What would happen to any donation if this site closed down?
In case this site would close down for whatever reason, all
donations would be re-donated to a cause related to Paxil
withdrawal. Most likely recipient would be an ongoing research
project into SSRI withdrawal.
