As many of you know, I do the rankings for the MSWA website. The MSWA is a non-profit, all volunteer organization and there is no pay involved for any of the hard working, dedicated volunteers. This doesn’t bother me in the least as the MSWA’s financial contributions to MD National teams has increased enormously in recent years. I support the MSWA and the wrestlers for the love of the sport, to help promote it, as well as give due recognition to the wrestlers who put in the hard work.
We decided a few years ago to set up a Pay Pal account and take voluntary donations as a show of appreciation and support for my efforts. This has been received very well in the past, and I’m very grateful for the support. I feel a little odd asking the wrestling community to donate money towards a job that is voluntary. But the amount of time I put into the rankings is more time consuming than a part time job (very close to a full time gig). To get some compensation for my time is great.
We did this so anyone who would like to chip in and help out would have a way to do so. Many of you have donated in the past and it’s been greatly appreciated.
