What about Super Bowl squares with a % going to the fund? Normally at are Church when this is done 50% goes to the charity.

It is really nice to see all the large donations but it is disappointing not to see more members donating. I was debating whether or not to donate my $10. I am sure some members are thinking he sure talks a lot and only donates $10. I decided the cause was more important than what others think. So please donate even if it is only a dollar or two. While it might not seem much they all do add up.

Any idea for how to make this more seen? Either way I think I'll give this 2 more weeks.

Part of community is giving, not just taking.
Maybe there should be some sort of recognition associated with each handle, indicating number of DDF Tzedokoh campaigns participated in, (without mentioning dollar amount,) similar to number of posts and main site deals.

Of course you can.
In fact, I assume that everyone who donated, probably did so.
But, my point is not to do this for recognition.
Rather, to achieve ממנו יראו וכן יעשו.
Tying it to the handle makes it noticeable all over the place where others can see it, and not just in this thread.

Along these lines (excerpts from Chabad.org):

In answer to a philanthropist who wished to give charity anonymously, so as not to be motivated by desire for honor and recognition, the Rebbe suggested a different perspective: "If a building is dedicated in your name, and your name on its wall is visible to all who walk by, others will also want to give. More people will thus benefit."

On a different occasion the Rebbe told a community activist, "It would be good for you to study Torah regularly, even if only a few minutes every day. And if you do this without keeping it a secret, you would be a shining example for others!"

It's a good idea, but not practical.
Some reasons are. Who decides what a ddf charity is. I don't think anyone wants that achrayus. It would put an unfair pressure on members to donate if they don't have the means to.

My post was only to show that any donation no matter how small is appreciated. I have been here long enough to know the makeup of this forum. Some may not be in a position to donate money. I would just hate to see a member not make $1 or $5 donation because they thought it was too small of a donation.

I agree, the way it is now I would feel dumb giving $5.

Perhaps there should start an #occupyDDF where the 99% will collectively make 1 donation larger than the biggest "1%ers" donation. But the maximum donation would be capped at 5 or 10 dollars.

I think it could be a lot of fun to try and beat out the largest donation by adding up all the $5 or $10.

Your thoughts?

In the spirit of this, I will match all new donations up to $18 from new donors for the next few hours (subject to be made longer or shorter depending on response)
