The Cost of Rescue

It's a tough topic when a Victim is lost and in a tight situation. When your life is on the line, all you want is to be saved and return home, everything else is secondary.

While we here at Eyes & Ears are fully committed to rescuing you, Quanta is needed to fund our operation. Everything from the costs of materials, fuel, repair scrap; it doesn't come for free. Since our employees could be getting paid by working for another organization, we pay them for their time spent rescuing that could be spent elsewhere.

Much of our expected profit will come from actually rescuing others and other services we provide, with the rest being covered by donations made by other individuals or organizations.

We hope that, with time, future Victims and Survivors will not be faced with the choice between losing everything, waiting an exorbitant amount of time, risking an unknown rescuer, or paying for what could be perceived as an "expensive" rescue operation from us.

Being fully operational on donations from the community would be the most optimal situation, but we ourselves, and those we have or will interact with should maintain a level perspective on this possibility.

We appreciate your understanding on this less than stellar news.

If you would like to donate, please see our Donate page.
