It has been our privilege to offer interviews on Buddha at the Gas Pump for 7 years now. We’re so delighted by the many messages we receive of profound appreciation and personal transformation. Providing this service brings us great joy and we are dedicated to continuing it for many years to come. If you would like to be a part of BatGap’s role in the global awakening that seems to be under way then you may be inspired to contribute.

Some people have suggested that we should charge an access fee as some sites do, but we don’t want to exclude anyone. We would rather receive support from those with the means and motivation to offer it freely, while allowing those without the means, or those who are just “checking it out”, to enjoy the interviews as well.
Our expenses include:
- Equipment: high-quality webcams, mics, camcorder and HDMI capture card, high capacity hard drives, fast computer, sound mixer, etc.
- Monthly Fees: Mail Chimp, Web Hosting, Software fees, Internet connectivity
- Essential salaries
- Office Supplies
- Conferences: Science and Non-Duality conference in California, other relevant retreats. This gives Rick the opportunity to meet many of the people he has interviewed and plans to interview.

Ralph Preston, has been generously and patiently donating hundreds of hours doing the video post-production work for BatGap. Ralph suffered a stroke a few years ago, and through determination and a fantastic attitude, has recovered dramatically. If you would like to help support Ralph’s desire to create a stroke recovery DVD please contact him at email@example.com. This DVD would provide information not easily available to the people who need it most: stroke victims and their caregivers.
