Suggest a charity for 2011!

Postby JenskiJen » Sun Jan 30, 2011 4:23 pm

It's time to select a recipient charity for our non-CSTS fundraisers (such as proceeds from our Browncoat Charity Booth) over 2011 and we're opening things up for suggestions!

If you can any ideas for a worthy charity, please post below by 5 February.

I think this year it would be very relevant to make our "other" charity Victorian Flood Relief, as administered via the Red Cross.

Cheers
Leanne :D

i agree with the Victorian flood relief.
I thought- would it be worth helping out queensland? First the floods, now the cyclone.

All worthy recipients. My question is, then, do we have one (extra) charity per year, or several (one at a time) over the course of the year? Food for thought...

An excellent question, Leanne!

What does everyone think? One charity or two?

Hmmm, do we get a heap of money for one charity, or for lots?
I think that it should be more than one, spread the love.

I think so too. Spread the love, and also, spreading our good name around doesn't hurt either...
