Shoutout Canada's Continued Growth

$410 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 11 people in 33 months
Thank you kindly for taking a look at our crowdfunding page for Shoutout Canada.

If you were at all interested in donating toward the continued efforts of Shoutout Canada and its 12 communities country-wide, this is where you would be able to do so.

The reason I am asking for donations for the free service is quite simple. Although we do not charge for the use of our website's, they are not free to run and advertise about, unfortunately.

Cost #1. With thousands of visitors viewing our most popular communities, the servers we are on no longer come cheap. Although I was able to pay a few dollars a month when we first got started, this is no longer the case, and is in fact a lot closer to $100 a month now.

Cost #2. That's not to say that there are no other costs in running these communities, either. Unfortunately advertising does not come cheap, and I've paid well over $2,000 in advertising for our Shoutout Edmonton community alone.

Cost #3. Our third expense in running these Shoutout Canada communities is finding someone from each communities' city, and paying them to read through, check spelling and grammar, and approve all of the posts that get sent in on a daily basis.

Cost #4. Although the service I use to create these websites is free (Wordpress), much of the time the plugins and themes we use are not. With that, I've spent roughly $500 on plugins and themes at this point to create the 14 Shoutout Canada websites to date (the 12 "Shoutout communities", the "Shoutout Canada" website, and the "Shoutout Canada's Best!" website.)

Those of you that choose to help out by leaving a small donation, I want to thank you. I want to thank you a million times. I want to hug you. I want to kiss you... Well, maybe not kiss. But honestly, every bit helps, and words themselves, cannot express how much it means to me.

Thank you.

Shoutout Canada Founder,
- Jody Mitoma
