New TakeFive Tip Jar Available Using PayPal

You may have noticed the recent addition of a PayPal logo on the upper right side of the TakeFive website that says “Donate” similar to this:

You can now donate to our site using PayPal!

You can now donate to our site using PayPal!

I have added the PayPal Donate link on our site for those so inclined to help us ensure Metroxing stays hopped up on pocky and Jolt to keep pumping out the TakeFive news update goodness!

On a more serious note, while we are not starving, we could use some tip jar love until some of the new advertising begins (stay tuned!) to roll in to help us pay for the new overhead and development costs associated with keeping TakeFive your favorite Mattel Pixar CARS news and information destination.

So for those willing to drop us a few greenbacks, a fin or two, or even a couple other dead presidents, we would be grateful and on the behalf of TakeFiveADay, we thank you!

Please note that you will need a PayPal account to send us a donation. You will note once you click on the icon on the right, that the donation goes to my (Tizmanian’s) PayPal account since I work on a lot of the ‘under the hood’ maintenance and it makes it a bit easier to process this kind of stuff but the proceeds will go toward paying things like TakeFive’s ongoing monthly web host fees, studio lights and camera gear, product, travel (hello, SDCC!), contest stuff, t-shirts, etc.Β  If some of you would like to donate but don’t wish to use PayPayl, just let us know and we’ll work up another avenue for you!

MET: Thanks you ALL for the tips! We will throw your names into an electronic hat at the end of each month and draw some winners for t-shirts, magazines or the special custom of the lost scene where McQueen drives through a glue factory, a feather factory and a macaroni factory …

    You know, I was thinking that this SHOULD be one of the most posted pages…tons of thank yous and what not… let’s hear it for Met and Tiz, and put out money where our addiction is… everyone should be able to afford a car or two;s worth of donation to keep this site viable and Met hopped up on Squirrel nuts!

    (MET: Thanks for all your support. Our current webhost is about 5 times what we were paying before but unless the West Coast gets blacked out, they pledge to keep us up … I guess we’ll get a full test of our bandwidth next Wednesday πŸ™‚ ).

    • TFAD Supporter says:

      You’re absolutely right PD! Everyone should dig in and help out!

      I read this blog several times a day, but don’t post often. I love coming here and would miss it greatly if it were ever to not be available to me!!!

      I too gave, but decided not to post about it, because I am generally private about personal support, but I love seeing and hearing from others about giving!

      Go TFAD!!! (Favorite line from above from PD “and keep Met hopped up on Squirrel nuts” heeheeheehee)

    Donation made! Now go out and buy some Lenticular Lightning McQueens at the Lakewood, WA Wal-Mart to clear them off the shelves! πŸ™‚

  • L8rM8r says:

    Donation made. Keep up the good posts! Be nice. Keep it clean. Stay on topic. No spam. πŸ™‚

  • Mia, Tia and NJM says:

    I couldn’t begin to tip an amount equal to the value of this site and the work it takes to create it but…….I hope my little bit helps to keep you on the air!! Thanks and Thanks.

  • samurai60 says:

    I check this page more than my stocks and more than my wife is on Facebook! Thanks guys.

  • Bombero1956 says:

    Donation made. Other than my bank this is the most important website I go to daily.

  • TarheelBill says:

    I guess the Lane Mates are not gone after all. I was in Kmart this morning and they had Lenticulars on Lane Mate cards. πŸ™‚ I guess that’s another indication that WM was never really going to be the exclusive Lenticular seller.

  • MiaSenorita says:

    Well I hope my tip helps a little bit – because I am more than happy to donate to this site. You both do an amazing job keeping us up to date and entertained. This is by far the best Cars blog and I don’t even bother looking at the others. Keep up the good work and don’t spend it all in once place πŸ˜‰ Love you guys!!!!

    (MET: Thank you & all for making it fun!)

  • Micky says:

    Glad to help. Wouldn’t want to go a day without Take 5 πŸ™‚

  • Lorri says:

    Hey is this tax deductible? just kidding worth every penny dudes!!!

  • Bill in Simi Valley, CA says:

    I thought this site was funded by a witness relocation subsidy from the State of California.

    Oh… Nevermind.

    TIZMANIAN: There are days that make you wonder…

  • John in Missouri says:

    I just left my tip — is it wrong to hope that maybe it’ll bring me a little Carsma now?

    TIZMANIAN: Thanks, John! Definately some good Carsma coming to you from Guru Lasseter all the way from the top of Mt. Pixarius.

    • John in Missouri says:

      heh… heh… heh… heh…

      (This is the best I could come up with to emulate Fred nervously listening to Lightning McQueen give his marketing pitch int he Rust-eze tent.)

  • blakefrommn says:

    Well it’s 100% official Kohl’s has Cars toys. They are carrying mini’s, 3 packs and lenticular singles. They have them now! Go go go go go! Sign up at Kohls.com to have your email sent a 5$ coupon off your next purchase!

    I just got a call from my boyfriend who went rummaging for a friend and I! LOL Good luck they have everything new right now!

  • Jeaks says:


    I really owe this site. Without it I would have half a collection. But I have a whole one so least I can do is throw in a tip.

    We don’t tip here in Australia and I remember the first time I went overseas and was in London. I was at a cafe and the young lass I was with said don’t forget to tip. I asked where and she said they have a tip jar. No worries says I and as I walked out I saw the cup near the waiter at the entrance and thought theres his tip jar. Pulled out a pound coin and flicked it with precsion from a couple of feet away straight into the cup. Feeling pretty good I gave the old two down finger signal ala a basketball umpire.

    The bloke just looked down at his cup, picked it up, then looked at me and asked why I had thrown a coin in his cup of tea.

    Anyway I have tipped and no need cups to worry about this time.

    This tip was made with much love and thanks

    TIZMANIAN: Many thanks, Jeaks! And all the way from Down Under no less. We’ll throw a shrimp on the barbie for you next time.

  • PirateDad says:

    Count me in!!!
