GREENSBURG KANSAS RELIEF FUNDRAISER

Post by jamoni » Thu May 10, 2007 6:03 pm

Details: http://zombiehunters.org/index.php" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

<edit> Final total is: $2701.00 from 93 donors!
Donate to the Zombie Squad Greensburg, Kansas Relief Fund!

As you all know, on May 4, 2007 an EF5 tornado crashed through the small Kansas town of Greensburg. Eleven people were killed, and thousands more left destitute and homeless:
http://www.kansas.com/static/slides/050" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; ... doaerials/

Zombie Squad's mission is not only to prepare for disasters, but to help communities cope with them when they do occur. To accomplish that mission, we are collecting funds to donate for disaster relief in this area.

The funds will be donated to the Midway-Kansas Chapter of the American Red Cross. Why not just donate money directly? There's nothing wrong with that. If you don't feel comfortable donating to the ZS fund then please don't let that stop you from donating directly! However, You get cool stuff if you donate with us:

1) The first 100 to donate $20 or more to the ZS collection will receive a special edition ZS dog tag, similar to the Katrina relief effort tags.
2) If you're a member of our discussion forum, you'll get a cool banner under your name until the end of the year.

How can you pass that up? We hope this will encourage those to give who might not normally donate otherwise.

NOTE: Every penny donated for this drive will go to the Red Cross chapter that is actively helping the people affected by the disaster. Zombie Squad will be purchasing the dog tags and covering all administration fees, including handling fees and paypal charges, etc.

You can donate by clicking here:

Or you can send us a check or money order payable to Zombie Squad (no cash). However. Be sure to e-mail us at Greensburg@zombiehunters.org so we know to expect it.

ZOMBIE SQUAD
Attn: Greensburg Relief
P.O. BOX 63124
ST. LOUIS, MO. 63163

Make sure to mark on the check that it is for Greensburg Donations

We feel it is important to come together and help out those whose lives have been affected by this tragedy. This is our opportunity to show what we as a group can do to make our world a better place.

If you are not comfortable donating to ZS please do not let that stop you from helping out. However, be sure to investigate before you give.

Thank you for your help. Please contact us at greensburg@zombiehunters.org

A big note here: All money donated will go directly to a charity helping in this crisis.

ZS has zero administration fees with this drive. We are buying the dog tags and paying for the paypal fees (for those that use paypal) out of ZS's funds from t-shirt/membership sales just like the Katrina fund raiser we did back in the day:
http://zombiehunters.org/katrina.php

Every penny you guys and girls raise goes to help.

so... basically, you get a dog tag for bragging rights and you're helping the cause.

Tell your friends!

Good response so far. Thank you for those that have donated already! Let's keep it coming, and like Kyle said, tell your friends! Use myspace bulletins, spam the hell out of them, bother your coworkers.

It didn't. I'll call you in a bit. Looks like Paypal flaked out. I'm pretty sure it was on there end. I was having trouble logging into the account earlier this morning. I'll give you a call in a bit.

There is a tally on the bottom of the page but it's a little out of date. We're over $500 in less than than 4 hours after I put it up on the site. A few people donated after Jamoni's initial post to get things going last night.

Still... That's pretty damn good. I'm a big fan of this crew. :)
