Can we raise one thousand pounds?

It seems to me that one of our very favourite members is in a tough spot. I was thinking that collectively, we might be able to raise the funds to help with a deposit.

What do you all say?

I'll pledge $100AUD.

Maybe UT can let us make deposits to the tip jar or something as a collection point.

Anyway, it was just a thought.

FYI - that's just over $1500 USD.

I'm in for a small pledge. If someone's organising it.

I'm hoping UT can help out. If not, I'll be happy to organise something. I can PM my bank details for direct deposit or I think probably use my paypal account somehow. Just not sure how to do that right now.

I can surely use the tip jar to put things together if people want. Specify your pledge.

Brilliant.

I've chipped in the amount I pledged, plus a little for you too UT.

Thanks for your accommodation. This will make it a lot easier for all of us.

I'll do what I can. Things are very tight right now what with having two kids getting married, a graduation, and Festival all happening within a month's time. Is there a deadline on this?

I don't think there needs to be a deadline in particular, but it seems that it'd be good to expidite the situation somewhat.

I guess if those who wish to contribute can do so over the next couple of weeks, say by the 20th of June and then UT can give us a total?

It doesn't matter if we can't raise the whole amount. Any amount will be better than what she has currently, and might take the pressure off her family a bit and therefor her.

Be sure to specify that it's for SG when you pledge. I will keep track and send it along at the 20th.

SG is politely declining, in a PM to me.

"Is this because of what I wrote about moving out? Tell people not to worry."

I don't want to post much of the PM -- I will ask SG to say more in this thread.
