Title: suggestion for tsunami benefit
Post by: lily1 on January 06, 2005, 09:42:00 am
hey 930 club, maybe you could highlight the tsunami benefit under the "this just in" section on the main page? the more people who see it, the more that attend, the more money raised for the tsunami victims. sounds like a good idea to me!
 
 
 A Benefit for Tsunami Relief featuring
 THIEVERY CORPORATION (DJ Sets)
 @ 9:30 Club ‚?Ę Washington, DC
 Proceeds go to Tsunami Relief Funds
    FRI. JAN. 28
 $25.00

Anyone clear on exactly what "DJ Sets" would entail?  I guess it means they won't be using anything that could be interpreted as an instrument?  For some reason I can't seem to shake the thought of the Thievery Corp guys dressed as DJ Jazzy Jeff and spinnin' it ol school against a backdrop of fake graffitti and parents that just don't seem to understand.

let me just bring this back to the top so my original suggestion is a bit more visible to the 930 staph.

Arlington native, Sandra Bullock, donated one million bucks.
 
 F1 racing w√ľnderkind, Michael Schumacher, topped her by donating ten million clams.
 
 ...AND the most powerful man in the world, W, donated ten thousand dollars..?!
 
 
 Isn't that rather like tipping the waitress a nickel?

No.  It's not about what his salary as (p)resident is.  It's about income-- like his little ventures in oil and such.  He's makin' a lot more than we know about.
 
 AND ON ANOTHER NOTE...
 What are "tsunami relief organizations?"
 I have to rant on this for a moment-- please please please don't give to the red cross.  they spend nearly $.40 on the dollar on overhead-- which is terrible for a charity organization.  Look instead to groups like CARE or Oxfam, which spend about $.10 on overhead and which are focused on long-term community development and empowerment in the process, rather than just dumping bottles of water...

there was an article in the post about this this weekend - apparently some charities are promising 100% of your donation will go to the relief effort which some believe is impossible
 
 I 'think' red cross is promising that 6% of tsunami donations will go to admin

I'm going to play Devils Advocate for a moment here.  When are people going to start boycotting Oxfam or CARE for development -- read: telling other countries how to spend their money.
