  • T-UK Charity Donation 2010

    Hello All

    Due to a successful campaign over the last few months promoting the FairFX Prepaid Mastercard, we've accumulated funds in 2010 over and above those required to cover the costs of running the website and forums.

    Those surplus funds amount to £150

    We've decided to donate this in full to the Anglo-Thai Foundation.

    A campaign currently in progress, in association with The Big Give, (see here for details) means that if we make our donation between the 6th and 10th December, the amount donated will be doubled to £300.

    While the 'double your money' campaign is under way, we thought it an idea to appeal to members who may wish to add their own donation to the amount we send.

    £5 of yours will be converted by the Big Give to a donation of £10, £10 to £20, etc.

    Click the button below to boost our 2010 donation:

    THANK YOU - DEADLINE REACHED

    Deadline for donations is 5th December 2010.

    (Premium Membership funds are separate and in addition to the £150 mentioned above. As ever, those funds will be paid separately to a charity chosen by Premium Members in May/June each year.)


    Best wishes

    Well done Paul, not just in raising £150 through the FX promotion, but in running the forum in such a way that these funds are excess to requirements.

    It would be great if we could match the £150 that you have put forward, that would make it a £600 donation in total when we donate to the 'double your money' campaign.

    I'm going to pledge a tenner from my own pocket to start the ball rolling.

    Any members who donate via the above donate button will be sending funds to me via Paypal.

    Should you wish to send a donation to me via a different means the please send me a PM.

    Thanks
    Lee

      Yes, job well done Paul . I understand there will be a vacancy in the Irish Finance Ministry coming up shortly. They could do with a lesson in good housekeeping.

        Today we have raised £80 towards for the AngloThai foundation.

        Ian, Simon, Tony, Richard, Leslie & Robert.
        Thank you so much for your generosity.

        To date we have
        Thailand-UK donation £150
        Members donation £80
        Total to date £230

        This will be doubled when we donate.
        So the grand total worth of our donations to the anglo-thai foundation after one day is £460.

        Please keep those donations coming in.
        Even if all you can afford is the price of a pint - every penny counts.

        Thanks
        Lee

                  Lee, my paypal is screwed up and I'd like to contribute - I also promised Paul sometime ago that I'd become a 'Premium Member'. Is there any other way I can pay?
