Robby, it is precisely because the WB Forum is so civilised that some of us are glad to be here! Thank you for being the Gatekeeper!  smile

Re: The Whip Basics Dog Shelter Campaign 2019

I just wanted to share my reply I dug up in my email archive that I received from Robby upon asking to join. Please and thank you go a long way and take 3 seconds out of your day. Oct 4, 2018 is the day Robby made me a man smile

I do. Not for everybody, but when somebody asks as politely as you did, it is my pleasure to welcome you to Whip Basics

Re: The Whip Basics Dog Shelter Campaign 2019

I am not a whipmaker and I love every whip I have. They are all made by a WB member. Which one to give away ?????

Re: The Whip Basics Dog Shelter Campaign 2019

Flemming, you don't have to donate a whip you want to keep for yourself. You can just make a financial contribution to the total sent to the Dog Shelter - either as a gift, or (perhaps better) by buying a lot of tickets.  smile

Flemming, my motto is, 'Never part with a whip you don't want to part with!' - or at least, 'don't mind parting with'.  smile

Yes, here we go. Let's get this done for them doggies.
There are a lot of charity's in the world to donate to. But a lot of them are so impersonal. Not this one. I know why we do it, and I like the fact everything is always transparent.
I'm happy to be a part of it.

Re: The Whip Basics Dog Shelter Campaign 2019

I'm finishing up my first whip in over a year for a departing colleague.  Once I finish that one I'll get to work on one for the drawing.  I missed last year due to my own failure to plan.

Re: The Whip Basics Dog Shelter Campaign 2019

I'm considering donating this 10' whip I'm working on. Realistically it is probably too long for me, plus it would be a great opportunity to have someone more experienced then I give feedback on my work. But we shall see if I complete it in time, and whether I can part with it or not once done, haha.

Cash is a little tight right now, but as soon as I am able I shall purchase my tickets, I can always find some money for a worthy charity, especially one run by such caring people.

It is sad that so few have responded Robby, I know I'm not always amazing at posting daily, but it doesn't take much effort to at least check in a few times a week if life is hectic.

Re: The Whip Basics Dog Shelter Campaign 2019

Oh! I missed this last year because of university, hopefully I can donate a whip this year (once I'm able to find a job to support myself lol)

Re: The Whip Basics Dog Shelter Campaign 2019

I will check my order book and see how the timing looks- I'll be buying tickets for certain, but I won't commit to a whip donation until I'm certain I can fit it in.  For the Pups!

Re: The Whip Basics Dog Shelter Campaign 2019

Robby, Jess, Robert, I have to apologize for my lack of participation lately. I've been getting about 4 hours of sleep a day due to work and school, so I just have very little time. That being said, I am going to be getting better about it.

Also, I am in the midst of trying to figure out what it is that I want to donate for this year, as I was unable to participate last year. I am thinking about putting up a pair of Karnevil Kustom whips (just have to talk to the guy whose signature model they are, and make sure he's okay with it). I may change the colors from the signature black/red/white, and do something different with them.

Now and then we had a hope that if we lived and were good, God would permit us to be pirates.

Re: The Whip Basics Dog Shelter Campaign 2019

If it's okay for everyone, I'd like to donate the black and green snakewhio which didn't get drawn last year. Also Tanja an I are going to buy tickets for sure.

All the best
Ben

Re: The Whip Basics Dog Shelter Campaign 2019

I can recommend Ben's snake whips most enthusiastically!  It's well worth buying tickets in the hope of winning this prize!  smile

Re: The Whip Basics Dog Shelter Campaign 2019

Does one have to have a paypal account to buy the tickets? I’ve never used paypal before and am uncertain about how to go about it. Also i’d love to make a whip for the cause! I’ve had it in the back of my mind since this was announced. I’ve only a little more than a handful of them under my belt, but I put my whole heart into each one.

36

Re: The Whip Basics Dog Shelter Campaign 2019

Nathan, there ought to be a way to buy tickets without a PayPal account, but I can't for the moment think what it might be. But joining PayPal is very easy, assuming you've got a bank account....

And I have no doubt that one of your whips would make a very welcome prize. Go for it!  smile

Re: The Whip Basics Dog Shelter Campaign 2019

Isn't the paypal adress in Robbys post, the very first one on this thread?

38

Re: The Whip Basics Dog Shelter Campaign 2019

Thank you Mr. Robert and Jyri. There is an email address in the first post, i’m assuming that’s all that’s needed.

39

Re: The Whip Basics Dog Shelter Campaign 2019

Indeed, Nathan - that's all.  smile

Just make sure to mark your PayPal payment as going to 'Family or Friends'; otherwise, PayPal will charge a commission.

And please remember to send it in Euros!  Otherwise, conversion charges here can add up to quite a lot - which the dogs don't get!

Re: The Whip Basics Dog Shelter Campaign 2019

And why does Payapal take a fee of 2.50 euro even though Family&Friends was the default setting?!? I still sent the amount that I wanted but Paypal put the fee on top of it. Seems to make no difference if I choose the amount in euros because it’s still converted into dollars and for that they charge a fee.
