John, I was thinking (that's usually a dangerous thing) about the ride in this year and what a great thing if all registered users of your site made at least a small donation. Maybe start promoting it early, send out emails etc. I think it would be a great testamonial to the people who participate in this sport if this could be pulled off. Just my thoughts. Have a great day.

That would be neat if we could get all registered users of the board to make a small contribution. With 7000 registered users, it would sure add up quickly!

John if every one registered could donate just five dollars that would be over 35,000 dollars. Snowmobiling is an expensive sport I think most of us can afford five dollars. Like you said it does not have to be mandetory . Maybe you could make a new topic out of it and and see what we can raise.

Here is a suggestion. Hotels, cabins, snowmobile dealerships and any others that wish to could put cans out on the counter marked John Dee's Make a Wish fund. Those that frequent this site would know what it is all about. As we enjoy our winter vacations in the UP we can drop in whatever we want to. At end of the season cans get pulled together and you have a pretty good piece of change to add to John's ride in.

The donation button is a good idea. Setting up via paypal is easy too. I have done it for non-profits before.
