Re: Charities: What's Out There?
Dan, I created a new thread using your post on UGL-specific fund raising; thank you http://www.bsu.edu/hvz/forum/viewtopic.php?f=140&t=3549
Ani, that seems like a pretty easy thing to do/sign up for. I just couldn't find if they wanted one-time comers or commitments for the duration of a project. The shorter the event, the easier for people to make the time. Definitely want to keep looking at this one since it's very easy to do (requires little from the volunteers) and could be practice for some people with the inclination toward the Stage-Production and Props aspects of UGL games.
Nate, I love it. This would be a great one to have donation buckets out during all our events. We could do community craft days to make the buckets all pretty, and maybe even have free photos of cute critters as for those who donate (or at least see the bucket) to take. These photos would be postcard-sized and have the ARF information on them, as well as a bit of UGL advertising. It looks like ARF is pretty loose with their copy-writing, but we'll see about that.
We could also kick it off with an animal-based event or something... HvZ training mission: deliver catnip and/or dog treats to each point (invest $20ish in materials-- even I could cover that cost-- or get players to bring them as donations or something). Each point has a donation and a couple of cute critters, and after the mission players get to ogle and play with the animals. This would require a little effort on ARF's part to bring the animals out, but could alternatively be run without the animals, and simply with the delivery portion (it's just less fun that way is all).
Keep brainstorming guys, this is awesome stuff!
