Since 1999 we have employed six full time workers in the living room of the home of the founder of visipix.com. He gets neither salary nor rent.
We need financial support for salaries, technology and internet-bandwidth

4. Buy shares (1.000 US$ up)
Up to now visipix.com has been financed with 300.000 US$ risk capital, mostly invested by the founder Hannes Keller. A big sponsor, maybe an airline, might buy the shares, turn visipix.com into a foundation and enjoy the worldwide goodwill. It is then expected that the shareholders make a profit. But: The risk of losing all money instead of this is very real.
It is our intention to informally pay back donations from 300 US$ up, plus an interest rate if and when visipix.com becomes profitable.
The visipix.com paradox
98% of the persons who profit from visipix.com might not contribute.
They have the right and the privilege for this. We at visipix fight with all our heart for this. If you donate to us, as maybe 2% of all our guests, you share our fight for the benefit of the other 98%!
Is this stupid? Or a paradox? Or what?
Certainly not. It is just an optical illusion. Everybody gives and takes in a million occasions. The most stupid thing would be, if everybody receiving something would always immediately pay back. That would be the end of all generosity and be a cold, merciless, totally commercialised world. Graciously take gifts, and graciously give occasionally. Visipix.com is about making gifts, but is now in need of some. In this respect, Visipix.com is not a vision, it is plain normality which you see everywhere. An example: Do you pay for Google services,
for Emails . . .?
