Current Donation Goals

Club Fundraiser

Greetings and thanks for your interest as an anonymous contributor to our site.  As you probably know there are costs associated with running a club like this.  We have been very successful doing this by running ads and donations over the past decade.  I'm sure you've noticed the ads, but, lately I have seen income from these ads drop significantly.  There are known facts that ads from Google are becoming less effective across the entire Internet and a changes are likely happening now.  I have created this fundraiser to help us cover some of the costs.  If you find this site useful, fun, and a place you can call home for your Z, please consider donating to our purpose.  Your money will certainly go to a good cause.  You can use this the field below to make a single donation.  

If you feel like giving on a recurring basis, please visit our store to purchase a recurring member subscription, we have a separate place for that in our store.  The difference between an anonymous donation and a paid supporter is the extras you receive.  Here's the difference in a nutshell.

Anonymous Donations (button below):

  • Any amount can be given at anytime.
  • Single donations, no auto renew.
  • Your account stays the same, nobody will know.
  • Ads will still show up.
  • Administrators will know who donated (but not regular users).

Club Supporter (in our store):

  • Fixed amounts can be given.
  • Single or auto-renewing amounts.
  • You will be put into the Club Supporter group.
  • Your username will turn red and a star will be placed next to your username.
  • Your account will show "Club Supporter" on all posts.
  • Ads will be blocked.

As we move forward into exploring other fundraisers, I will keep you informed about what we are doing.  Until then, rest assured that your donations will go to a great cause, supporting our website!

Thanks for reading!

Bikes for School Kids

bikesforkids_bicycle.png

This year we are putting together a fund to purchase bikes for school kids through Child Fund International.  These bikes will enable poor kids to get to school and help their families so they can grow up with an education.  Because we are all interested in wheels, this is a themed fund and fits well with our goals to make the world a better place.  Below is some information about the gift fund and how it works.  Donations will be accepted through our site and I'll submit the proceeds, on behalf of our club, to the kids.  The goal is to buy at least 2 bikes for a total of $200.

Here's a bit more from the Child Fund International website:

----------------

Girls who travel long distances to school need bicycles.

Many girls struggle to continue their education because they have to walk such long distances to school. A bicycle will help students stay in school, because it won’t take her as long to get there and she will have more time for her studies. With your gift through our Dream Bike program, we will be able to donate bicycles for students in 16 countries.  More about this fundraiser can be found here.  

----------------

Feel free to give to Child Fund International on your own, but, our goal is to pool our money and donate as a club together.  Our pooled support will go to a great cause.
