TheDataDB has been running for 10 years. In that time we have created 4 different website services to provide free online metadata (with our easy to use JSON API's) to various Open-Source projects, Mobile Apps, Education and Commercial Businesses. We believe data API's should be free and open at point of use, while giving Pateron supporters extra rewards.
The website API's we provide Data and Artwork for include: Music (theaudiodb.com) Sports (thesportsdb.com) Recipes (themealdb.com) and Cocktails (thecocktaildb.com).
It costs money to run the servers, we've had a few donations in our history but its never been enough to cover our running costs, let alone the costs of adding new features or launching full new websites. Historically we have done it out of our own pockets for the the love of spreading data and seeing awesome new services launched. As we got more popular we had to find other ways to support our services.
The more of you that support TheDataDB sites, the more time and money we will invest in the sites and the more new features and services we will provide.
Thank you

Goals
$130 of $200 per month
As we get more supporters and go over the  100 million hits a month (yes really!!) we need to pay for more bandwidth. Cloudflare is great for this but we would like to pay for a better service from them to improve the speed of our sites in North America, Asia and Africa. We would also love to upgrade the images on our site to Creative commons licensing by paying a professional photographer.
