I don't have deep pockets, but I'm wondering if there's a place to donate to the mod teams. As far as i know they're volunteering, and they've been very helpful for both the trees that I've finished.

I'm posting this in swedish as opposed to globally so as to keep open the possibility of a specific way of donating to the swedish team.

While I am very flattered by the suggestion, I will not be able to accept. It is the stern opinon of me and a few fellow contributors of the SE-EN team that Duolingo is, should and will remain free and accessible even with regards to voluntary donations to moderators. The work we do is non-profit and likewise is our reward. Thus, we don't want to add money into the mix.

If you want to donate anyways, I would personally recommend you to donate to Doctors without borders or such organizations and give us contributors a thought. That would make me happier than to receive dineros myself.

Peace out, take care.

Well thank you and the rest of the team for your work! And thanks for the suggestion of where to direct the money instead :).

The only way I know of is if they link their website and something and allow paypal donations. I don't think Duolingo itself would handle that sort of stuff.
