I, Elke Porter, now have a patreon page, where patrons of the media arts can support my efforts to set up German Canadian Media Channels in western Canada. As a Russian lady once told me “Russian Community in Vancouver small – 3 papers. German Community big and no papers.”
That was the inspiration that caused me to start with a 4-page newsletter known as “German Voices Vancouver.” This morphed into a newsletter called “Westcoast German News”, which morphed into a blog and has now inspired a magazine “Das Schwarze Brett.” Next up is a weekly YouTube Show called “West Coast Germans”. But in order to get this off the ground I would need your help!
If you want to support me and my creative efforts, with anything from only $2 a month pledge, or up to $100+ a month, you would be earning my gratitude, my admiration & respect and eventually, my help in marketing you or your business.

What is my mission?
To inform, entertain and educate anyone living in western Canada on topics relating to local German, Swiss & Austrian people, places or things. My goal is to share information and build community and highlight the contribution of Germans in BC & Alberta.
From the days abode, media has remained an integral part of human civilization.
What will I do with the money?
Besides paying for rent, food & transportation, I will also be using the money to expand what I can offer. Blogging will be done more frequently, my magazine will then be published monthly and my YouTube Channel will be launched. Exciting times – all with your help!
You have not lived today, until you have done something for someone who can never repay you. Paul Bunyan.
What other services do you offer?
Besides creating German Media, I also have done WordPress Websites, written short books, translated texts from German to English, taught German, created ads, promoted & planned events, did the voiceover on a few videos on YouTube & worked in areas of public relations.
I create, I take risks. I live my passion.
