Okay, the idea started with woodenelf wanting to do something to help endangered species. Many others decided they also wanted to help.
As a starting point, people can sign the petition found on the first message of the main thread, which is about tiger poaching.
It was decided that we would need to work out ways to raise both funds and awareness. We decided that, if possible, we would want to try and do something under the banner of stephenfry.com, and I have sent a message to Andrew Sampson, site creator, to find out if that is possible. Waiting for a reply.
Puppaz was the first person to suggest that we could all do fundraising in each of our retrospective countries, and the suggestion was made that we could do all this on one day, like there is an Autistic Day and Jeans for Genes day.
Monochromeprincess suggested that we could also do an online event, so I suggested that there could be a creative competition such as a poetry competition, with the theme being endangered species.
Eternal Student found information about WWFs Extraordinary Gifts scheme, and this seems to be a very popular choice, though a decision has not been made yet. https://secure.worldwildlife.org/ogc/ogc_egHome.cfm
I have asked for a new topic section to be put in the forum for this, and EternalStudent has asked for a user group. We are both waiting to hear.
Monochromeprincess suggested selling merchandise such as hoodies and tshirts. She suggested that there could be an auction for items as well.
Taluta suggested pooling everyones talent to compose a book which could be sold to keep funds coming in. A competition can be incorporated into this.
Amyl_nitrate thinks she might be able to find a storage website where we can upload all work safely for the book if we go ahead with it.
I found a website that donates a certain amount of money to a cause when people shop online. This could be advertised as a lot of people shop online, especially at Christmas. It might be too late for this Christmas, but there is next Christmas. We can set up our own cause on there. http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/?gclid=CNPcoraNxZYCFSAbEAodR2hoxg
So that is the summery so far. Sorry if I missed anything out, and feel free to add anything I have missed out. Please continue to use the other thread for ideas and discussions. This is for summaries so people can catch up easily if being away for a while.
