Although I have never attended a TDIfest, I know TDIfest has always been both a get together and fundraising opportunity. Since there is no TDIfest this year, I was thinking that a donation is in order.

I just made a donation and I challenge anyone else, who like me finds the TDIclub.com website helpful and useful to do the same.

Without donations TDIclub.com doesn't exist.

Even $1 says you appreciate what goes on here, and if you can give more, please do. You can find the paypal link in the lower left on the www.tdiclub.com homepage.

Who else is with me?

For those that were intending to go to St. Louis this year:
How much would you have spent on the hotel rooms?
How much on the raffle tickets?
How much on food, fuel and lodging while getting to, and back from, St. Louis?
How about sending some of that un-spent money directly to Fred this year?

Good point, johnboy. I don't attend TDIFest, but this is a good reminder that it's time to support what has been over the years a very valuable resource to me. Donation sent.

I just sent some CAD to fred myself. I couldn't figure out why the amount I sent changed, then I noticed it converted my US greenbacks into funny money!
I would challenge others to dump a bucket of used oil over their heads, but I think just sending some money gets the point across!
Every little bit is a good thing, guys. This site has been a wonderful resource for so many of us other the years. Thanks Fred!

We made a donation to the Club a few weeks ago. My reasoning was that we would have provided products for the raffle and auction, plus last year we made a cash donation in addition to the products. So we did it again. This club is invaluable to us as a vendor, and I enjoy it as an enthusiast. Let's keep it going and keep it advertising free!
