Charity

Monday, September 19, 2005

Yesterday was the "Condom Fair" on the Malecón. The AIDS organization where I volunteer organized it, and I stopped by to help haggle people to donate. It was funny, some guys contributed just to get their hands on free condoms, haha. Some queer-looking tourists actually gave a lot of money. How sweet...

And we totally smoked the guys asking for money right next to us. They were raising funds for some little kid so he could get some kind of transplant to hear. Poor shmucks, all they did was put up some signs and waited or people to read them and donate by their own good will. PLEASE. We were 5 people strategically harrasing anyone who came near; we were ruthless.

Anyways, I honestly don't think this type of events are worth the effort. They really don't raise that much money and they are a lot of work. Plus, two people got pooped on by birds! The humanity!!!

I'm trying to think of a better idea, that can raise the funds necessary for the cause and also be efficient and not just standing in the sun and rain for hours on end.

Anybody got any ideas? They're more than welcome...

    Ok, seems Serge is fond of fund-raising parties, haha.

    They actually hold two yearly parties already, so that idea is kind of already taken. They do an auction and some of the patients sell raffle tickets.

    I liked the cakes/cookies and special dinners idea. The bracelet thing I think has been kind of overdone, but I will definitely mention it to the organizers.

    Thanks for your help! =D
