$2 a month payable 12 months in advance - 20 people required

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by vic, Oct 11, 2004.

  1. Hello all,

    I am looking for at least 20 people who are willing to give away $2 a month for 12 months payable in advance.

    Netrider would like to sponsor a child through World Vision.
    If we were rolling in money I wouldn't ask the members to chip in.

    We aren't rolling in money so I am asking the question.

    If we can get at least 20 people every year to part with $24 we can sponsor a child and make a huge difference to some one less fortunate.
    All correspondence/pics and updates will be posted on "our sponsor child" page.

    What do you guys say?
  2. I'd be up for that....$20 bucks is not even a main course at a lot of restaurants these days.

    Or a couple of packets of cigarettes for those of us who HAVEN'T made effort to quit!! :oops:

    C'mon people!!!

  4. count me in $24 sounds like nothing for one year!!
  5. I gave up smoking when I left primary school so I geuss I could afford that. By the way Lil when I was at said school 12x2=24 :D
  6. Vic - bloody great idea! My wife and I have two boys and we currently sponsor two girls - one from South Africa and the other from Thailand. I would sponsor more myself, however gotta pay bills as well.

    Count me in. One thing you need to be aware of though is your tax implications. I looked at doing something similar on my site, however had to pay tax on the donations (as I was not a registered charity). Either way - count me in.
  7. I'm in.

    This message isn't too short you damn fool machine. It's succinct.
  8. I'm a lazy mid twenties girl, okay!!! We round everything!!
  9. Dear god, mid-20's. I'm a year past being able to say even that.

    Back to the topic at hand, what reference do you want us to use when we transfer the money Vic?
  10. Yeah, just hold off for the minute, I'll open another account and we'll use that.
  11. Yeah I see what you mean but it's not netrider accepting money for charity, its 20 people all chipping in to sponsor a child. There is a difference.
  12. Well.....to tell the truth.......I rounded that one a little bit too!!! :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:
  13. yea its about time i do a good deed.. count me in
  14. Count me in Sir Vic. Just tell me when you want the money.
  15. Add Big Ears to the list please Vic.
  16. 24 buckarooies a year for a needy kid???
    please add 'yoda' to the list..... :D
    lemmee know, where to throw the dough (via EFT of course!)
  17. I'm already sponsoring a kid, and giving money to my local church, but if you need more people to chip in here, $2/month is SFA - count me in.
  18. Sounds like a great idea. Count me in too :)
  19. Count me in for $ 4.00 ( $2.00 towards a bike)
  20. Lets get our own lives together before we try to "fix" some one else's
