Once upon a time someone tried collecting for a gift for Dan, they set up an email address for people to send amazon GCs to (any amount). I think it never happened and they sent back all the GCs though.

The problem with any GC, especially Amazon, is that it can easily be spent by the recipient on all sorts of things. While a present is something that lasts a while and periodically they say, " We got this from Luvisrael."
Asking them is a great idea. (Tell them your price range. they may even want to subsidize it to get something more expensive.)
Another option is if their city has a local frum baby store, to get a GC there. That way they can use it for any baby gear, possibly even towards furniture if they want, but they'll probably remember what it was as opposed to getting diapers or tissues from amazon.

I'm too busy right now to take personal charge of this. Anyone have ideas on how to do such a thing in the easiest, most privacy-protected manner?
are there any fee free Gofundme type of platforms?

Is JJ chopped liver? He had three babies. Does a lot of work on this forum, and never gets credit for it. He would be rich if he got a nickel every time a commenter on DDMS wrote "thank you Dan" on posts that are clearly marked "posted by JJ."

I think we should do a joint baby gift collection.
Well is JJ banned from this thread? Because of he isn't you just ruined the surprise ;)

If anyone really wants to organize this they can start a google group or whatsapp group for whoever is interested to discuss the details. And no spies!

I think we need a method that doesn't involve a breach of privacy. Many people don't want to give their info. I think we need a link where people can give, run by a DDFer who is widely trusted. People giving can discuss here what to give, or leave it up to the digression of the DDFer running the campaign.

Unless a few people want to discuss privately, and then set up a link for people to donate. Someone can make a paypal account for people to send $, but that will also show the sender's email address. Amazon GCs are the same I think.

It's different if one DDFer sees people's email address than if there is a group where everyone can see that info. People won't care as much if the mod can see their info (hey, he can probably see it anyway).

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

I think that each member can make their own decision, but I think the suggested amount should be

"$5 to $10, but if you feel that's not enough, $20 or more"

You want everyone to be able to contribute without feeling the pinch, but some larger contributions to help accrue a substantial total. Don't forget, we want to be able to split it between Dan and JJ, and each (or maybe, each's wife) should get a respectable gift.

What's your thoughts?
