I would like to throw out the following for discussion. However, before I 
begin, Congrats to K-Team for their upcoming milestone of 1000. I hope we have 
the opportunity to participate with you for the 1000th find.
We have an awesome website. There is no doubt that Rich, Paul and Others have 
put a lot of time and energy into the site. It is enjoyed by many from all over 
not just from the St. Louis Area. 

Would it be beneficial to SLAGA if we started affiliating with certain 
businesses to raise money? By this, I mean, join an affiliate program in which 
we have banners on the website and anyone who clicks the banner, makes a 
purchase, results in a small commission. There are thousands of businesses we 
can affiliate with and make a few extra dollars if someone purchases something. 
All of this is done behind the scenes and we only have to have an affiliate 
number and the banner or link on our website.

Of course, it would not be banner city. We could perhaps even have a seperate 
page that has a few banners. I would purchase Items I generally purchase on the 
Internet but I would do it through SLAGA so we get the commission. Items range 
anywhere from contact lenses to household cleaners to prescriptions.

You can see all the affiliates at 
This of course is just one of the many link management companies out there. 

It's a simple process, you click, you buy, SLAGA gets a check.

I leave it for discussion...
