Donating or Sponsoring

Finances are tight. As a teenager who is currently still in Polytechnic studying, I essentially have no income.
All my projects and their assets cost up to $30 SGD in a single month. Here's the breakdown of it;
1. Linux Server (Hosting MapleSEA BotIA Website, and a Backup Utility to backup all my projects from both my servers)
This server costs $14.02 SGD per month.
2. CPanel Server (Hosting this website, NoReply Email Systems, and a Job Management System)
This server costs $2.88 USD (~$4 SGD per month after conversions, visa taxes, etc) per month.
3. Domains
I own 2 domains, eltontay.com and ingeniousapps.net.
The domains cost $16.98USD per year for both, totalling to $33.96USD per year. (~$47SGD per year after conversions, visa taxes, etc) Essentially, it is ~$4 SGD per month.

4. GSuites 

GSuites is used for the management and storage of IA Files, IA Branded Emails, and other google services for IA, such as Google my Business, Google Meet, etc.

This service is $8.96 SGD per month (no visa taxes as it is a local merchant)


Essentially, I pay a total of around $30 per month. I pay them using my savings that I derive from my allowances.

I would appreciate it if you would like to help me out with the server finances so that I can spend more time doing my applications and projects without the need to worry for the finances.
