Sunshine fund
« on: September 05, 2007, 02:13:49 am »
Don't know where this should be posted--mods please move if needed.

I was wondering if we should start a "sunshine fund"?  For those who may be unfamiliar with the term, it is a fund to which we could donate as we can and the money would be used for serious emergencies when one of our backups needs help.  This would not be for frivilous things.  Angel's ticket to see her daughter and Dylan is a good example.

Just a thought.  I am so relieved that someone was able to come to her aid but a sunshine fund would allow all of us to help.

That's sweet and I like it. We'll need to discuss the logistics of it. We'll provide more feedback after we discuss.

Thanks for the great idea.

Great idea. I watched Oprah today on people giving to others who are less fortunate. I was thinking of what I could do and now I know. I hope we can make this fund happen.

Well, I'm sure our PTB (egads--we have PTB's!) will talk it over and see what can be done--that is why we have this forum, right?  So that we can do this type of thing legally and securely.  If we can help Melinda, we surely can come up with a way to help each other when it's necessary!

Sounds like a great idea to me, too.
Melinda does inspire us to do "Great" things.
