    Two comments on that website:

    Sidways scrolling is a no-no
    There's no obvious call to action/next step.

    How does one go about making a donation?
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Thanx Dave, I'm not sure why Wordpress does this, to be honest........ But, I've removed the "recent posts" from the homepage so it looks better.

    And, since the content is shorter, it should help with the "next step" as well?

    Make a static page called Donate with all the details, and perhaps a boldly designed widget in a sidebar that shows on all the pages promoting a donation to get to World Champs?
