Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved. ~Hellen Keller
I love researching and writing for all my pages, groups, and websites but it takes many hours a month to research and sustain. I've opted to subsidize the content through the generous support of readers like you: directly, through donations, and indirectly, whenever you buy a recommended book or product on Amazon from a link on any of my sites, which sends me a small percentage of its price. So if you find any joy and stimulation in it, please consider a modest donation via pay-pal — however much you can afford — when it comes from the heart it’s the kind of gesture that makes me warm with appreciation.
JK Gallery participates in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn commissions by linking to Amazon. In more human terms, this means that whenever you buy a recommended book product on Amazon from a link on here, I get a small percentage of its price. That helps support my efforts by offsetting a fraction of what it takes to maintain the sites and continue to post articles and opportunities for artists and writers and Islamic knowledge. Your generous support is very much appreciated. If you are a regular online shopper on Amazon, please ask me how you can make your purchases help support this site and I will give you links to use before placing your final purchases.
Thank you for being here and I hope you benefit as much as I do from the articles, reminders, recommendations, opportunities and links. Peace!
