[TheThinkTank] Example of Nonprofit + Commercial Shop Synergy?

We've got some friendly shops in Vancouver!  Sidesaddle really stands
out. They have run fundraisers on our behalf, regularly donate nice parts,
and have even written a QBP community grant for us. It helps that a few of
their mechanics volunteer with us, but they're also just a great group of
folks that - surprise - don't see us as a threat to their business (we
aren't). Probably helps that we don't do work orders.

Our relationship is more commensal than mutualistic, but we certainly do
regularly send folks their way.
