There are 10,000 registered users at Cryptomundo. There are thousands more of you whom visit here daily to read Cryptomundo. This blog, voted the most popular site of its kind and picked for notice often, is averaging two million page reads a month. The global interest in cryptozoology is very high, and as we all know, in times of economic stress, topics that involve adventure, the unknown, and animals – to wit, cryptozoology – remain high.
Think of the power of your numbers! If every one of the registered – all 10,000 – gave $2.50 to the museum fund, even after the PayPal fee, there would be enough money to save and move the world’s only cryptozoology museum into more daily availability. Donations via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org (those are “L”s not “ones”) or, your donations via snail mail to International Cryptozoology Museum, attn: Loren Coleman, PO Box 360, Portland, ME 04112 USA, could do it, because of those numbers alone. No excuses about not having enough money to donate; everyone has an extra $2.50 for cryptozoology!

My thanks to Peter Loh and so many others – indeed, all of you, all 10,000 and more – for what you’ve done so far.
This includes a reader in Iowa who wrote in a side note very, very early this morning, when she sent in a $25.00 donation, “In lieu of a quick flight to the comedy event of the year, I’m sending you my ticket price via paypal.” The joke, of course, is the ticket price, but the thought and the funds are sincere and most appreciated.
I look forward to hearing from you via messages and PayPal notes to email@example.com
Thank you. Keep on track!
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
