Can someone help me with this?
I am stuck in the middle of a major dilemma. My friends and I are trying to set up a charity/organization, but we’ve hit a dead end. Our webmaster is in the process of setting up the website so we can get publicity. We are planning on holding a benefit concert to raise money for diabetes. Problem is, I just got in touch with a possible venue… and they cost (at the cheapest) $5,000. We’ve applied for a $1,000 grant, but we haven’t heard back from them yet. We want to hold the concert over Spring Break of 2009, but we don’t know how to get the money. We want to hold pre-concert fundraisers to get money, but the problem is that fundraisers cost money. We’re really stuck here, and we need some help. We need as much donated as possible, but we don’t know where to turn. At this point, we’re screwed, but I’m determined to make this work. We’d need lighting and sound equipment, a stage, possibly tents (not camping tents…), maybe chairs, food, beverages, and so much more donated.
We have written letters to send to various people/companies regarding publicity, sponsorship, and performance… but we can’t send them out until the website is set up. We were thinking of holding a raffle as one of our pre-concert fundraisers, but we don’t know how to get donations for that… we’re really stuck. And we could really use some advice. Don’t say to give it up… that’s bullshit advice, and it’s not what we’re here for. If you have any connections we could tap into… or if you know of anyone who would be willing to help us out, PLEASE let us know. We’d all really appreciate it.
We have big ideas, and we have little money. We have a few connections that will work well to our advantage, but we don’t have enough. If we could get enough money raised/saved up, we were thinking of having a few photographers at the event to liven things up a bit… we found photographers we can hire for $400-600, but again… we’d still need money. Please help.
In order to hold a raffle you need to be licenses with the gaming commision for you state – that costs around $100 depending on the state and six to eight weeks….In the US
So I’d start with your local Chamber of Commerce. They’ll have the information you need for your location – to set yourselves us legally as a non-profit. You’ll meet and have access to lots of local businesses in the process. Build relationships with them – give them the opportunity to meet your needs. You need stage equiptment – see if you can’t get a local biz to donate the equiptment or the rental fees.
Sell advertising space in the form of vinyl banners or large signs or flyers at your event. (Like at baseball fields or other large venues)
As a non-profit you can call and ask for donations…
As a non-profit with a gaming license you can hold raffles…
Without the license you can hold fundraisers in a park – Go small, think bobbing for apples, sack races, games of old – charge admission for a cause – sell advertising and booths to local business for this parkj event. Sell hot dogs, balloons, water balloons, face painting, etc.. Make it a community event – ask for local businesses to volunteer or ask for churches to help sponsor you. There youth groups need outreach opportunities.
Don’t do this alone. Think of yourself as a snowball falling down the mountain. Gather others to you and you can change the world!
Consider gathering local doctors….local diabetics….grocery stores – hold a coloring contest for raising awareness….
Good Luck you can do it!!
Bangkok Airport – room for 6 hrs?
I have an 8 hr layover in Bangkok International airport, and would like to book a transit room or sleep room for 6 hrs,
just to take a nap and a shower.
I checked the airport website, it only shows the Novotel Suvarnabhoomi hotel, which only seems to allow a minimum of 1 day stay, and that too at 150 USD or so.
any other cheaper options in the aiport, for a few hours between flights?
I mean other than just camping out in the chairs in the waiting area
Sorry but there is no cheap stay anywhere in Bangkok – for foreigners.
I lived there for 2 years and found everything ( except for transport) more expensive than Tokyo …
help with pranking people ?
I’m going on camp with my youth group in the summer and the age I’m at now (16-18) I’m in what’s called the sgts mess. Its known as the best mess(group) on camp. Well in the mess there is a committee for each camp which organises activities, serves the food etc
Well this year they’ve set up a new position, mess prankster… and its ME!!
Because its the first year it needs to be something really good that has impact.The camp is an outside camp, mostly in tents. I will have a budget but it won’t be that big, so cheap is good!! We need to prank the mess above us (age 18 to about 30/40) and the one below us (age 15). The 15s got us pretty good last year so we especially need payback for them. I was thinking of hijacking them. Water guns/balloons etc
One for the older group is to go into their mess and cover EVERYTHING in tin foil. Literally everything; forks, chairs, the tent itself.
What do you think of those ideas, also do you have any other ideas which I could use????
One thing that worked well for my Scout troop was shrink wrap. If one of your parents/ older siblings works in a warehouse or factory, they should be able to get it for you fairly cheap or free.
Hmmm, what to wrap? Since you mentioned that it was mostly tents, I would suggest the outhouses or the shower shack. Another idea, mostly for the group above you, would be cars.
How to get 99 Range in Runescape (members)?
Hey i have like 28 days of members left and my range level is 74 (almost 75). My combat is 88 and i want to know what to do to get 99 range the fastest/cheapest way. These are the ways i’ve tried so far:
-Soul wars (killing the pyrefiends)
-Ogres in King Lathas Combat Camp
Please list more ways to get 99 range in 28 days. I tried using red chinchompas at the skeletal monkeys but… i died. LOL. It was actually pretty funny until i found out i lose my 4k chinchompas (2.2m).
Pest control seems to be the most fun and xp-earning way as i get 1k+ range xp each round plus the 2 pest control points (about 300xp each).
I tried fire giants at Glarial’s Tomb (waterfall dungeon) and ranging them across the chair thing and rocks. I made 20k with a ring of wealth on my first round (lol). And i’m on my second round now lol. But its so boring but the xp is decent, 596xp each fire giant. But it’s REALLY boring.
I tried rock crabs but i got tired of going next to the rocks for them to attack. Good xp. I forgot to mention that i HATE quests. I almost killed my self in Ape Atoll doing the Monkey Madness quest, so i left as soon as i got the monkey greegree. So please don’t mention Yaks or whatever. I want to train on them but the quests are ANNOYING as heck.
I tried Soul Wars but my teams kept losing so the 20mins i spent in that game was for 3k xp (from the 1 zeal) and some xp killing the pyrefiends. Plus i kept dying from people lol. I gave up on this because at Pest control, i could’ve made like 10-20 rounds (4-5k xp from points and 1k each round, 20k). So as you can see, Soul Wars is not an option. i might try it again to see if my team will win but i always end up on the losing team lol. bad luck haha.
I tried Green Dragons, bad xp as i keep attracting revs but AWESOME CASH! 100k per load. I might do this when i have 85 range or faster to speed up the process as i am still recovering from the loss of my chinchompas. And plus, each round of green drags is about 10-15mins. Thats a few hundred thousand dollars per hour! $$$ hehe $$$
I trained on ogres in the King Lathas Combat Camp thing and its good xp, not very crowded but i lose money as the ogres are caged. I use iron knives because currently, bronze knives are MORE EXPENSIVE than iron knives! haha i found this odd. I don’t really like this type of training. So i left and as a goodbye present from the ogres, they gave me a toadstol seed! 330k- atm. So i left happily. But i ain’t returning, sorry ogres!
And lastly, i did some slayer tasks and i got bored lol. My slayer master -in canifis- gave me gay monsters to fight. my slayer is 35 so i wouldnt blame him haha.
So overall, what would be the best way?
Note: I DO NOT want to chin anymore. It’s gonna wipe away all my mils that i spend years building up to in a week.
Should i train on:
Pest control monsters
-INSERT MORE OPTIONS PLEASE -
Thanks for responding if you did!
To be honest with you should not cihn until lvl 85 at least. (still fastest way)
I would do pest control for full void it will help alot in the long run. (in pc use cheap bolts on portals, ex: steel bolts. Portals because you get full xp instead of half xp)
weapons: I really recommend darts/knives I personally used mith darts (though market price could have changed alot of things) also notes to help (steel darts = iron knives, mith darts=steel knives) (i usually buy mith darts cause it’s cheaper than steel knives) (oh and ava is a must for range training)
once you have void i recommend cannon at dragon (i know it’s frowned down on but it’s an good xp/money bonus) (i make about 1 mil an hour, minus cannonball price when the balls were 6k each) (now i think it’s down to 700-800k) ( buy about 200 game necklace 8 for tele) i get about 60k+ xp an hour there.
The money you get should give you enough money for good training. I would train with darts/knives at yaks. (quest required….) but if you don’t that location i would do lesser demon….. (very very boring)
i would not do soul war/dragon above green or hard monster that hits hard (just less money and boring) and slayer is good but still slower than darts at a good monster.
Yaks are good hp and they have sucky atts
at lvl 85 i reallly reallllly reallllllllllllllly recommend chinning. I know that you died but if you do it right you get 250k an hour. (i got 98-99 in like 5 hours) (that’s 1.2 mill xp)
(i chiined lvl 97-99 but i heard 85 is a good lvl to chin) (prayer pots/range pots (prayer with eagle eyes + prayer with void is great xp) (btw don’t bring 2 mil worth of chins… U won’t finish that many anyways..)
add me if you got more questions (i afk sometimes when i do hw so message me and i’ll eventually respond.) kevin 28115 (there’s a space in between)
