    Drop in a couple of quarters the next time you see one. It's good for the less fortunate and good for the soul. :yes:

    Another way to raise money besides pure donations might be to allow auctions on Barter Town IF a percentage of sale goes towards donation. To increase the base, regular AK members (non-subscribers) might be allowed to participate in these auctions.

    As a starter, I would offer for such an auction my Nakamichi TA-2A receiver that is for sale now. If it will be sold, 10% of the final price will be donated to support needy families this Christmas.

    I thought about that too, however up at post 36 it would appear that Grumpy wants to wrap this up by 7 to 10 days past 11-28-09, so there isn't much time.... You could certainly ask.

    Figuring we collected donations till around the 9th or 10th, its going to take me at least a week to shop for these families. Then we hope to deliver the gifts about a week prior to Xmas.

    If by chance more funds come in after our deadline, we can still donate these directly to VOA, who will be happy to sponsor more families up till the last minute. Thanks

    We are still accepting donations to help our adopted families up until December 13 at 6:00 PM eastern time.

    Again thank you all for your help in helping us spread some holiday cheer.

    What the heck... one more time... paypal coming your way! This makes Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, whatever, very special. Most everyone has no idea when or where they (we) may be on the receiving end of such kindness.

    At our house it feels an awful lot like we are the ones getting a huge blessing out of this... so, Thank You both, again!

    Today is the last day to donate. I will be calling Volunteers of America with AK's donation today.

    My wife should be posting a final report on all the holiday cheer our members helped to spread. Thank you all.
