Fundraising
« on: August 02, 2010, 03:16:19 PM »
Kids of courage (mainly Camp Simcha staff and campers) is going on a trip to LA. They have a camper who is not flying with them on a charter flight and unfortunately, is medically unable to sit in an economy seat. They are looking for a generous volunteer to donate either two regional upgrades or miles for this campers flights.

Only United airlines upgrades/miles will help. Please email ari@kidsoc.org if you can be of assistance. Thank you!

PS. I don't know why any *a miles wouldn't be ok, I'm gonna try and find out, and update the post

Mods, this isn't a request to buy or trade, so I thought it would be ok here. Feel free to take action you feel appropriate.

From Facebook:
A very special Camp Ssimcha Special camper has wished for a laptop computer, and we'd love to grant it. A laptop for this wheelchair-confined camper would help him communicate with friends and family and keep up with schoolwork. We would load entertaining games, and of course, Camp Simcha Special pictures to remind him of the best summer ever! If you can help, contact Esti at egoldschmiedt@chailifeline.org.

Google does free card processing for some charities in case someone wants to apply to get free processing I'm sure you'll be able to get a ton of donations that way!
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Wow, now thats an excellent idea. Im sure many people here would be willing to donate instead of giving their pennies to the gas pumps. I wonder if Google would cut them off if they get too many 1 donations

I think it's important to note that many times you need a "qualifying purchase" which means a purchase that gets miles, and I've heard that you won't get miles if the purchase is 99 cents or below or something like that. It would be a shame to waste 25,000 miles because you were so cheap that you looked for a 1 penny charge. What I do is simply carry the card around and use it for my next few small purchases, like a soda at a gas station, etc.

Itz just not worth it to lose out because of something so silly. When I used a chase debit card at 6 gas stations in a row for 30 cents each, they shut down my account for fraud and it ended up being a huge hassle and the charges never posted...so beware.
