Boutique fund raising

Unread postby prings » Tue Feb 10, 2009 1:21 pm

lp & i have donated to the Satara Webcam, The Rat Pack - Ranger initiative, and are sending some Aussie Cricket items for the silent Auction.
After talking with a couple of the MODS(about us donating some other way) it was decided that we start a topic, where people can offer to donate to the Rangers, from holding their own little event.
So this topic is open to anybody to make a low-key fund raising announcement.

So to start it off, lp & prings will donate R20 for every forumite, that we meet during our trip, between 14th Aug - 5th Oct 2009.
The more forumites that turn out to meet us(to our advantage, to put faces to names), the more the Rangers will benefit. :rtm: :rtm:

Prings family, We will be in CB area from 26th Sept- 1 OCT. If you are in the south of the park at that time we can make a plan :D

Wish I could help out but I'll be working the day you've mentioned...I'd be happy to help out in other ways though.

Cool idea....does this count ????

I have offered to donate R50.00 to any SANParks project if Mashona manages to bring back a better caracal photo than mine on his upcoming trip to KTP :D If he doesn't I probably will still donate the R50 bucks...and then sit back and gloat :wink:

@billy. See you are getting the idea of this topic already. Great suggestion of yours, that after the first time we meet someone, if we meet again, you pay the R50 :wink: :wink:
