Quote
Dearest DDF Family!

I cannot begin to express my gratitude and thanks for the outpouring of love which I see, I am humbled by my fellow DDF'ers who took it upon themselves to join the fundraising effort and help me in my time of need. It gladdens my heart to be part of such a family, who will go out of their way to help their fellows in need, whether it is financial or otherwise. I will be forever grateful to all of you, to those who donated the prizes, to those who donated money, and to those who made this a reality.

Thanks again!



What's this all about?
If you've been following this thread you may know that a longtime DDF'er who has a young family was arrested for being on the scene at the time of the sting operation.  Many of you have probably even met him in the real world. Several generous DDF'ers have donated prizes to be raffled off to bring attention to the defense fund created on his behalf.

The Pidyun Shvuum campaign (the general one) has gotten attention already in the media anyway, and I don't that DD would make it worse.

In any case, I think that putting it up for one day wouldn't kill it.

I hear both ways. And the site isn't a Jewish one per se, so it may turn people off and lose followers, something for Dan to think about. But if it is a "paid" ad it is also different...

Thanks.

I was referring to the association with DD. It won't do any good to DD or to the defendant.

It would probably be a good idea to have some kind of clause that winning may be subject to verification that the donation was actually made.

I don't think it's an issue at this point, but just in case we get a bunch of new members who donated...

I see it both ways. 1. People don't want to fork over $100 so don't give anything. 2. People who would normally give $18, $36, $54 are now doing $100+ because that's what everyone is doing.
