Topic: All our little friends who need our help...
Everybody loves puppies. So nice. So cute.
But the old ones, the ill ones. Three legged, blind, deaf. Who loves them...?
Interestingly nearly no one.
Everybody's happy to be here. No one has to pay anything. No membership fee or other nonsense. You receive information and advice which is priceless. Again - everything for free. Now you can give back, something.
I created the Whip Basics Donation Campaign. We're going to collect money for animal shelters. To make sure that everything is correct and there's not the smallest doubt, I'd suggest to make Jonathan "Boss of the money". Why him...? Pretty simple. He works with dogs. All the time. He helps them. And doesn't only talk about helping them. I know Jonathan is an honest and loyal man. I trust in him absolutely.
Anyone against it? This would be the right place and time to say no.
How will it work? Jonathan will create an email account, we all can send our donations. He will post a list who donated how much. And - no - this list will be absolutely open. Not anonymous. Not on names nor on the donated money. I want it to be open to see for everyone! It'll be open to see even for guests.
After three weeks we make a cut. Why three weeks and not three month? Pretty simple. Who's not willing to donate, won't do it in three days or in three years. And Jonathan will send the donated money to a shelter he thinks they need it the most. Later on he'll post the donation receipt. If you know about a shelter that needs desperately help/money - tell him! We all have enough money to go out to dinner, to go to the cinema and so on. So everybody has at least a little bit of money to donate. Minimum donation will be 5.00 USD. Everything else is a bad joke.
And to make one thing clear to all. No one is forced to donate. But I want every active member in this forum to report, here! Just a few words. Something like "Okay, acknowledged". No big text. Because I will not accept lame excuses like "Oh, I didn't see that...!" Everybody will notice that new category. And everybody can read it. And I want everybody to confirm that he/she read and understood.
Please don't let me see that you're online or posting in different threads without reporting here. I'm aware that several folks in this forum avoid/ignore my threads. That's okay. I don't mind.
Here I do. Thank you.
Like I said - I can't force anyone to donate, sure. But I can force everybody to confirm that he/she noticed this campaign. And I will. Serious. This is not about my person. This is not about you. This is to help those who can't help themselves! If you can't donate - for what ever reason - I'll accept it without further questions. Perhaps next time. But if you're not interested in this campaign, because you think it's waste - you'll hear from me.
The only thing... Jonathan doesn't know anything about this. I'm going to inform him right now...
And you'll be informed when we start!
