  • Are you ready? What's next?

    The Pow Wow Shop is now open, so we have a way to sell crafts online.

    Where do we want money to go?

    What?? Huh?? Is this the charity craft thingy?

    Did you get very much at Christmas time for the Native American Scholarship fun? (I was tapped out and didn't get to contribute.:( ) Did you ever think about doing your own powwows.com scholarship?

    Maybe even just for the students registered here at PWS.

    Maybe for a strong "B" student.

    Maybe donate a computer to a needy PWS chatter?? (jks)
    ...it is what it is...

      We did raise $200 for the fund raiser.

      People were talking before Christmas of donating crafts that would be sold in the Pow Wow Shop. The proceeds would then be donated.

      So do we still want to do that?? Do people have some things to donate?

      Where should the money go?

        I think we should start small with selling crafts. I don't know right now that we would raise enough money to have an ongoing scholarship.

        However, I'm open to ideas about what to do with the money. Whether it goes straight to a Charity or we use it to buy someone a computer or other needed items is ok.

        That would make it somewhat more complicated. How would the project get promoted? How would people apply? Who decides on the applications?

        I don't know that I want to become a charitable organization giving out money to individuals?!?

          Oh OK. It was just a thought.

          My honey and I will donate something. Do we mail them to you or what?

          Maybe you could donate to a different charity every month, and proceeds from items sold that month could go to the next charity on the list. Or are you thinking about just sticking with one? That would be easier.

          Off topic ;) : could I send you a money order for a powwows.com cap? I don't have credit on my credit card.

            Yes, you can send them to me. I'll PM you my address.

            And yes, you can send me a check or MO.

            Thanks!

                        Here's a suggestion-

                        How about using the money made to purchase fabric and other things needed for parents that want their children to start dancing? I'm sure there are some parents out there that maybe can't afford to make outfits for their children and would benefit greatly from a contibution of outfit making materials.

                        It could be a great way to give back. And if it is well thought out and organized this could be a blessing to many families. And a great oppurtunity for youth who otherwise might not be able to dance. What do you guys think? It could happen!:)

                          Good idea... :Thumbs


                          I noticed in another thread that people said they would rather give their old dance clothes away to someone that needed them and would use them in a good way, than sell them. Maybe we could have an exchange for people to donate and others that could use them.
                          Only thing is.. how can we regulate something like that to keep things going in a good way?

                            If we put our heads together we could come up with something. And if one way doesn't work we'll just try another.:D
