Dear Gamers With Jobs Community;
I have been a silent member of the network for a while and now the town of Stanford le-hope, Essex, England, UK needs my help.
I have taken the plunge into local community activism and I am casting aside social awkwardness in favour of the residents of my town by going to local meetings.
The Stanford le-hope festival is enjoyed by many people in my town and promotes local businesses. I was shocked to find out, on my first local meeting, that the festival is dying because the committee members cannot maintain it by themselves.
The amount of money they need is fairly minimal but the Hope Committee lack the resources to collect donations, although it might be a measure implemented soon, which is where the internet may be the salvation of a physical town.
UPDATE: Ugh. Cannot believe the misfortune. I do not recommend GoGetFunding as all of their projects are currently offline. In the mean time, please try...
All this change may seem peculiar but I can assure you it is all for the same cause and will be handled in the same way regardless of the situation.
I am asking for a small contribution from anybody willing to give. The Hope Committee reference target is £2000 -The overall total cost and not the donation target which is currently £350.
Every pound and dollar will matter and there is no such thing as a true target total here.
I know that we as a Gaming Community spend those few extra pounds, dollars or euros on cheap steam sales and abstaining from just one tempting deal to add to a Steam backlog while instead donating it will make a true difference to a real community of people.
Here is the website for the Hope Committee: http://www.hope4stanford.org.uk/
Thanks for your time. I pledge to upload proof when the festival will be over so that you can see your money putting a smile on people's faces.
If for some totally unforseen reason that the festival does not happen at all then I will donate the money to a charitable cause with proof to you, the Internet.
P.S - I would love to hear feedback from readers.
