RE: Frustrated
Gotta be honest, of I were hiring security for the trip, Misanthropik, you'd make my short list of candidates!

Seriously though, the region they go to is a peaceful area. They are escorted by two Masai Warriors and a federal police officer 24/7. Plus if there is concerns about political temperature, unrest, or anything else, they cancel the trip. Safety is taken very seriously. That said, there is always a risk when traveling. The risk in this situation is very acceptable compared to the reward.

It's a very important aspect of the trip, and I appreciate Misanthropics perspective on it. Complacency is dangerous, so I gotta keep on my toes!

So many cats, so few good recipes.

Yes, but does your shotgun have a passport?



I want in on the support gig. I had to raise money a few times in my youthful years to go on Jesus trips. I'd rather pay it forward for something actually useful. Drinking Beverage

Let's do this shit. Checked out some of the fund raising sites and quickly realized I got no fucking clue how to go about doing this. Make it so, Hellbound.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Was already working on this.

If you do want to use a website, I've given money through http://www.indiegogo.com/. I don't know a whole lot about how it all works, but it looks like there's a link for how it all works!

Another option is to open a paypal account.

Utilize all your and your daughter's Facebook friends besides the forum here.

$5000 sounds like a lot of money...at least to me, but when you boil it down, you just need 50 peeps to give a $100 bucks, or 100 peeps to give $50 bucks. That's not too unreasonable if you start promoting now. Thumbsup

Another friend mentioned indiegogo too. Been researching it as best I can. Seems pretty good. Anyone who's more Internet savvy than me willing to give it their stamp of approval?

RE: Frustrated
It's not too hard to set up. Here's a mock campaign I just set up.

It appears from the initial set up that they charge about 7.5% if you reach the entire goal. I think there are different levels of pricing if you go this route.

RE: Frustrated
4% if your goal is reached, 9% if it isn't. Either way, not too bad considering what they do. One problem may be that I'm in Canada, so there seems to be some extra fees there, but overall it looks pretty good huh?

Thinking I may just give it a shot!
