supplies drive for Thanatos

Post  Professor S on Sat Mar 27, 2010 4:40 pm

Greetings,

Thanatos gives away supplies, I think he does it with his own money. I want to see we can round up supplies for him to give away. That way, he wont' have to spend money to do it. I think it would be a wonderful show of support for the RLSH community. May also give us some good press coverage.

However I think we should send the stuff to a Charitable organization, marked "Thanatos". That way, if anyone wants to raise a stick about it, it's a charitable donation. Also maybe be tax deductiable.

I was also thinking about something like this too. But wouldn't it be up to him to make it first for us to be able to donate to it?

Or we could just made a general fund of some sort any of us could donate to and gave it away to him and other such worthy causes.

Greetings,

I think for the time being we should focus on Thanatos. I sent him some cereal bars. I hope they get to him alright. The thing with money is it's more traceable then physical donations. For example, money can sent to him can be tracked. Cereal bars, are alot less easier to track.

Superman is working on getting non-profit status. If he get's that then I will have no problem raising money for other worthwhile causes. But I think each individual should choose what they want to support. That way people won't have conflicts with things.

True but money isn't always traceable. Prepaid visas combined with something to block your IP works well since they are basically gift cards with none of your info.

Yes, that might work rather well in this case, I have to admit. Send Thanatos a PM, he sent me his contact information, and I don't feel free to give it out to someone else.

I'm just brain storming at this point. I'll ask for the contact info if a time comes when I need it.

Well one thing too is we can use listia to raise money for non-profits. They have a feature on there. So people could donate their unwanted stuff, and we could give it away to get credits. That might go better then asking for money.

Facebook has a causes function as well where people can donate to a cause they believe in. But then we have all the problems of using facebook for something.

People donating unwanted stuff to listia,that we turn into creds, into wal-mart gift cards or something then into blankets and such seems like the way to go at the moment.
