Hurricane Sandy 2012 Charity Drive (Closed)

Post by kyle » Fri Nov 09, 2012 8:02 pm

UPDATE #FINAL

We raised $2,785 towards our goal of $15,000. Not great, but we're stopping the drive short of our goal due to bad timing. Between the holidays, Newtown, and more weather severe weather across the country this drive probably won't be picking up any more steam.

ZS will be sending a check to the American Red Cross for the full amount raised.

Thanks to all who donated!




------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
UPDATE #2

ZS is now a tax-exempt 501(c)3 non-profit. What does this mean? It means that any donation you make to this drive can be deducted from your 2012 income taxes!. Time's running out for donations -- and tax deductions, so donate now!

Once again Mother Nature has displayed a serious dislike for the people living on Planet Earth. The images from New York City, the Jersey Shore, and other places on the east coast of the United States show exactly what kind of effect she can have on us. People have lost homes and businesses. Residents in many areas have been without power, clean water, and access to basic service for more than week with no sign of relief in sight as a snow storm now descends upon them. Damage costs are estimated to be in the billions and it's unknown when life will return to any semblance of normal.

Well, Mother Nature can suck it. We're calling on Zombie Squad members, friends, and associates everywhere to help residents of the affected communities kick her ass and show her that no matter how hard she tries, humanity is here to stay.

As the photo ops end, the news crews move on to the next big thing, and the country's attention is diverted elsewhere, the need for help remains. So, we're stepping up to help. And as we've done in the past, where letting you decide where our help will go.

We've put together a list of organizations that we've investigated. Each organization is working in the region to provide disaster relief. For a minimum donation of $5 (one vote per person please), you can cast your vote for the organization you prefer. Voting will be open from 12-Nov-2012 through 25-Dec-2012. Our goal is to raise $15,000. Whichever organization has the most votes after we reach the our goal will receive a check from Zombie Squad International. And while there's no maximum donation, if you donate $25 or more, you'll get a nifty commemorative dogtag as a thank you. If you're a member of the Zombie Squad Forum, you'll also receive a "DONOR" banner applied to your account.

As usual, the costs of the dogtags, postage, paypal fees, and whiskey consumed while stuffing envelopes, will be covered by Zombie Squad. Every dollar you donate in this fundraiser will go to the winning organization.

Thank you for your help in this fundraiser. We spend most of our time making sure that we can survive everything from an onslaught the undead to a flood, we also have to make that survival worth it by doing as much as we can for our fellow human beings. Even if you don't contribute to this fundraiser, please do your own research, find an organization that speaks to you, and donate in whatever capacity you can.

I won't be able to donate until the end of the week. Please don't shut it down early if we exceed our goal like the tsunami relief.

As I was watching a gal on TV the other night lead the reporter around the washed out remains of her home pointing out where her things used to be, I was thinking that, for her, Uncle Zed had just bit her leg. Hell yes I just donated. Hell yes you should too. Uncle Zed can suck it. The muddy foot prints of his shambling advance stops here.
