How you can contribute to - darkpuppet

Dear focuscanada member,

It's not often that I ask for our membership's help, but once in a while I feel compelled to explore our options for growing and improving the site.

And this time, I'm asking for your financial support to help grow the site... whether it's buying something from the store in our merchandise section, clicking on ads, or putting your time towards organizing an event for members, every little bit counts.

And now, I'm introducing another option: the donation.

The site makes enough through other channels to operate the site in it's current form, I'd like to be able to do more, including:
  • more give-back at events
  • personal garages and blogs
  • articles pertaining to the focus and canadian motorists
  • mobile capability
  • ride planner and tracker
  • and much more

These things take time and effort to create. Using free software, or developing our own, these features have a time and materials cost that corporations pay thousands of dollars to implement.

There are other pressures we face here including ongoing attacks from hackers and pressures from outside media companies that could see drastic changes to the site against the membership's best interests.

Your donations will go towards time and materials to create, support, and improve these features as well as meet the challenges before us to keep the site in it's true spirit -- focused mainly at the benefit of it's membership.

With your help, we can quicken our plans to become more than just a community forum - and maintain our independence in the growing commoditization of websites like ours.

As bonus, if you donate $20 or more, I will add a custom title to display below your screen name (or a generic "Premier Sponsor" if you don't specify one).

Once again, I thank all of you for your continued patronage and contribution to making the site what it is today. FocusCanada is possible because of it's amazing membership.

Contribute to's future!

Donations of $20 and over get a custom title!
