Money support for website

Post by rinsemesocks » 23 January 13 5:16 pm

The nsw geocaching assn website says that buying a pathtag each year supports their association.

Is there a suggested purchase(s) to help fund the gca site, or are all the developers mega rich already?

Hardly....

You can make a donation at http://geocaching.com.au/shop if you'd like.
Thanks!

note: your friendly developers personally take no money from any funds raised, it all gets rolled in to paying for hosting and what-not. Any contributions, no matter how large are appreciated.

While I would hate to discourage the purchase of the yearly Geocoin from GCNSW (which does a lot to help keep us afloat by the way!) finding a few dollars for the new GCA Pathtag is always high on my agenda when they come out. It's a great way to support the website... and you get shineys! :D

I align my primary donation to GCA with the due date of my Groundspeak renewal plus add a couple extra each time I make a purchase.

Here is an idea....
any coins/cash found or picked up during a cache hunt, or even from the cache itself ( verboten) could go into a jar,and every now and then donate thet total to the support of the game.
I've ben collecting the coins i find on the street, or in cache containers for a couple of months,out of curiosity.
I have $2.34 ( yes I found 2 x 2c pieces from caches) so far. so not enought to donate but maybe if everyone did it ,it would ad up quickly....
as soon as i get to $5.00 i 'll make the donation.

wouldn't it be great to stuble on a real Stash of banknotes... Im sure i would donate the whole lot to GCA! ( less 90%) :lol: :mrgreen: :roll:

Most of the money I find is in the bottom of the washing machine. :-(

Like many geocachers, I pay $30 to Groundspeak annually for premium membership, so at the same time each year I also donate $30 to GCA... I feel that my GCA spend is much better value than the other mob! :D
