Our maps will always be free to use. I could never bring myself to charge for spreading Christmas cheer! But some people have reached out and asked how they can help with this community-run project. So, here's what you can do to help:
Contribute to our Project and Submit a Display!
The best and easiest way to help with this project is to submit your Christmas Light displays, and to include pictures with the submission! I strive to have photos of each display on the map, so submitting photos helps tremendously - it saves a ton of time and gas. We don't exclude submissions, but if you're not sure if your home is "map worthy", just ask yourself this: would you be willing to drive out of your way to see this display? If so, that's the kind of stuff we're looking for.
Tell a Friend! Share our Maps, Posts, etc. on Social Media!
If you don't have any information to submit, and are still looking for a way to help, you can SHARE our Facebook page, maps, blog posts, and other social media with your friends and family! Any and all likes, shares, and tags are so helpful in spreading the word.
Donate using PayPal or Venmo
Another way to help is to donate to help maintain this project. There isn't any minimum donation, and it's totally optional. I will be straightforward about one thing - if you are planning on using this map on your own blog or website (real estate, radio, newspaper, TV) to gain web traffic, I would encourage you to donate so we can keep this project afloat.
