[2017/09/03 11:06] Caro Fayray: heydan
[2017/09/03 11:06] Danger Lytton: go for it albert
[2017/09/03 11:06] stiofain mactomais: ribs and keyboards arent a good mix
[2017/09/03 11:06] Caro Fayray: lol
[2017/09/03 11:06] albertlr Landar: First many of you may know we have been talking about having a fundraising campaign here on OSgrid to help to raise funds to increase our on going paypal balance, and our bank account.
[2017/09/03 11:07] Arrwyll Barzane: yur right, i alwasy getting the keyboard stuck in my teeth :)
[2017/09/03 11:07] Koni Lanzius: ~**LOL**~
[2017/09/03 11:07] albertlr Landar: That is to not only cover our regular expenses here, but to have back up funds in case of an emergence, and perhaps to help us invest in new things for OSgrid.
[2017/09/03 11:08] albertlr Landar: paela is doing a wonderful job of making our new website more effecient, and fixing bugs that have been in place for a long time for OSgrid.
[2017/09/03 11:08] albertlr Landar: But that will take a while, but new and better things will be coming.
[2017/09/03 11:08] Caro Fayray: many thanks pae
[2017/09/03 11:08] albertlr Landar: In conjunction with the campaign paela and Total have made us a thermometer to show what our goal is and where we stand.
[2017/09/03 11:09] albertlr Landar: There is one here on Event plasa as you land and come to the stage area here.
[2017/09/03 11:09] Wizard Atazoth: Awesome
[2017/09/03 11:09] albertlr Landar: It is more correct now. Our goal is $3,000 and it shows right now we have received already $1,000 of that.
[2017/09/03 11:10] dan banner: i'd like to point out the donation total and goal displayed on the website and thermometer is not the actual paypal balance
[2017/09/03 11:10] albertlr Landar: So we have a good start now.
[2017/09/03 11:10] albertlr Landar: We will not be using the paypal balance as that goes up and down all the time.
[2017/09/03 11:10] dan banner: the thermometer is for the fund raising
[2017/09/03 11:10] albertlr Landar: much as your own bank account would.
[2017/09/03 11:10] Caro Fayray: does that include regular monthly donations?
[2017/09/03 11:10] albertlr Landar: yea, paypal would be that.
[2017/09/03 11:10] Caro Fayray: ok
[2017/09/03 11:11] albertlr Landar: So we have to use only what is raised for the campaign if it is really to help us with our true goals.
[2017/09/03 11:11] Danger Lytton: is the goal a monthly goal?
What we are trying to do is maintain the monthly balance in paypal at around $3,000. And with regular single contributions and montly donations the balance in paypal would remain around that amount each month. Any access would be transferred to our back up bank account. If we can maintain enough monhtly donations going forward then the balances in both paypal and our bank account should increase instead of gradually going down as it has the past two years.
[2017/09/03 11:11] dan banner: albert the thermometer is driven by pledges recieved in the
[2017/09/03 11:11] albertlr Landar: yes dan, that is correct.
[2017/09/03 11:11] albertlr Landar: We have also now received $350 in matching grants for the campaign so far.
[2017/09/03 11:12] albertlr Landar: now does everyone understand the difference between the matches and the pledges.
[2017/09/03 11:12] Koni Lanzius: how does the pledge thing work, Albert
[2017/09/03 11:12] albertlr Landar: Well first we want to raise as much matches as possible.
[2017/09/03 11:12] albertlr Landar: What we need to raise to meeting out goal right now is $2,000
[2017/09/03 11:13] albertlr Landar: So if we can get at least $1,000 in matches, for each pledge we receive the amount raised will double.
[2017/09/03 11:13] Caro Fayray: so matches are osg and pledges are ppl?
[2017/09/03 11:13] albertlr Landar: yes.
[2017/09/03 11:13] Caro Fayray: k
[2017/09/03 11:13] Koni Lanzius: so we send the match money where again? ;p
Challenge matches themselves are just a promise to pay us, so you don't have to send payments now or during the campaign. We will bill those when they choose for the amounts they issue as a matching grant challenge. The place to send your Match amount and who you are is
[2017/09/03 11:14] albertlr Landar: I propose that we set the last Friday of September for the beginning of the actual pledge campaign this would be the 29th.
[2017/09/03 11:14] albertlr Landar: I will get to that in a moment.
[2017/09/03 11:14] Koni Lanzius: i second
[2017/09/03 11:14] albertlr Landar: This whole campaign is patterned after how it is run in public radio.
[2017/09/03 11:14] albertlr Landar: Ive have about 8 years experience in handling all that.
[2017/09/03 11:14] albertlr Landar: in real life.
[2017/09/03 11:15] albertlr Landar: But they go on for ever 12 hours a day.
[2017/09/03 11:15] albertlr Landar: We plan just to do our campaign in conjunction with the DJ dances and hopefully get people to encourage others to send in their pledges during or afterwards, etc.
[2017/09/03 11:16] albertlr Landar: Now we will have two emails addresses to handle the two types of donations.
[2017/09/03 11:16] albertlr Landar: is already set up.
[2017/09/03 11:17] albertlr Landar: So if you want to issue a match you can send us an email with how much you wish to match. how you wish to pay for it, perferably before the end of the year. Your avatar name, and if you wish recognition.
[2017/09/03 11:17] albertlr Landar: We will not name you if you don't tell us to.
[2017/09/03 11:17] albertlr Landar: That is up to you.
[2017/09/03 11:17] Koni Lanzius: what are the payment option?
[2017/09/03 11:18] albertlr Landar: You can pay your match by paypal, just indicate to us that you have done that or will do that or by mail now.
[2017/09/03 11:18] Koni Lanzius: oj ok
[2017/09/03 11:18] albertlr Landar: You can send us a check, money order, or even a foreign check in European currency.
[2017/09/03 11:19] albertlr Landar: Our new P.O. box address is Osgrid, Inc. - P. O. Box 1001 - Rincon, GA 31326
[2017/09/03 11:19] LaNani Sundara: USA
[2017/09/03 11:19] albertlr Landar: This is on the donation page of the web site also.
[2017/09/03 11:19] albertlr Landar: Now that is for matches.
[2017/09/03 11:20] albertlr Landar: For Pledges we can also accept montly pledges. Say for instance you now have a monthly donation of $5
[2017/09/03 11:20] albertlr Landar: And want to increase that to $25, then your pledge for the campaign would be the difference of $20 X 12 or $240 for example
[2017/09/03 11:20] Caro Fayray: x 12?
[2017/09/03 11:20] albertlr Landar: And over the year yes.
[2017/09/03 11:21] Mirror Amorasi is Offline
[2017/09/03 11:21] albertlr Landar: Because one of the problems we have had with our paypal is the montly donations had fallen down below what we had in expenses each month.
[2017/09/03 11:22] albertlr Landar: We really need to only increase our monthly donations by about $100 more per month to start building up reserves.
[2017/09/03 11:22] dan banner: albert can you explain the new email addresses and how they work with this
[2017/09/03 11:22] albertlr Landar: So all of this is doable, just takes a little effort to let people know.
[2017/09/03 11:22] albertlr Landar: Yea basically we have a local bank with BB&T now and they can accept foreign or US bank checks or money orders.
[2017/09/03 11:23] albertlr Landar: We have not had the option of the mail before this, so decided to try this out for the year.
[2017/09/03 11:23] Cilla Teebrook: are you saying that you do not want donations going through PayPal?
The answer is anyone that wishes to use paypal please do so. They do take a 2.9% fee from every donation at present, but with checks there is nothing deducted from your donation. So there is a slight advantage to handling checks. However paypal will be faster and for a lot of people its more convient, so please continue to use paypal if you wish. Also as OSgrid is a 501(C)3 NON-PROFIT all of your donations are tax deductible in the USA. If anyone wishes to have a receipt from us, we will gladly provide that for your tax purposes.
[2017/09/03 11:23] dan banner: and
[2017/09/03 11:23] albertlr Landar: I have personally paid for the p o box for the next year.
[2017/09/03 11:23] paela argus: ty albertlr
[2017/09/03 11:24] albertlr Landar: And when we start the campaign for pledges you can send your pledge to
The pledge again is a promise to pay either monthly or by the end of the year. Let us know when you want to be reminded and we will be glad to send you a bill for the donation amount. Which again you can pay through paypal ( but let us know) or by check to our P O Box 1001 in Rincon, GA 31316.
[2017/09/03 11:24] albertlr Landar: we now have both of those email accounts working now working now.
[2017/09/03 11:24] albertlr Landar: If Ihave any questions on what you have pledged I will send you an email back asking for the additional information.
[2017/09/03 11:25] dan banner: so donate normally and email the amount the
[2017/09/03 11:25] Caro Fayray: ok
[2017/09/03 11:25] albertlr Landar: yes, but let us know that your pledge is for the campaign.
[2017/09/03 11:25] Caro Fayray: so u dont want us to pledge yet?
[2017/09/03 11:25] albertlr Landar: You can pledge now if you wish.
[2017/09/03 11:25] albertlr Landar: or make your donation.
[2017/09/03 11:25] Koni Lanzius: ahh ok
[2017/09/03 11:25] Danger Lytton: send money caro they will take it
[2017/09/03 11:25] Caro Fayray: ok
[2017/09/03 11:25] Caro Fayray: lol
[2017/09/03 11:25] albertlr Landar: or make a match.
[2017/09/03 11:25] Koni Lanzius: hehehe
[2017/09/03 11:25] albertlr Landar: either, but we need to keep those separate.
[2017/09/03 11:26] albertlr Landar: A match only goes in if a separate pledge is made.
[2017/09/03 11:26] paela argus: people can give basic donation or make a match right ?
[2017/09/03 11:26] albertlr Landar: And if you wish us to bill you please let us know when
[2017/09/03 11:26] Caro Fayray: a pledge
[2017/09/03 11:26] albertlr Landar: yes.
[2017/09/03 11:27] Wizard Atazoth: Maybe we need a sign in world or additional info on the osgrid donation page to explain it too.
[2017/09/03 11:27] albertlr Landar: either, as I said we already have 350 in matches. And I will be giving updates on our Saturday Q&A meetings each week till the campaign starts at end of September.
[2017/09/03 11:27] Caro Fayray: matches are no good without pledges tho right?
Technically however most of those making a match have agreed to include theirs also even if a pledge is not eventually made to match it.
[2017/09/03 11:27] dan banner: so it starts in oct?
No the Carnival Campaign would be starting September 29th that Friday, and should go to Sunday Oct. 1st if the DJ's wish to participate that long.
[2017/09/03 11:27] albertlr Landar: We only need about 650 more in matches to cover the second 1000 in our goal.
[2017/09/03 11:28] albertlr Landar: Then when every pledge is made for the campaign, each pledge will be matched dollar for dollar up to 1000
[2017/09/03 11:28] albertlr Landar: And we can maybe exceed our goal for the campaign.
[2017/09/03 11:28] Koni Lanzius: awesome
[2017/09/03 11:28] Danger Lytton: And when the equal amount of pledges is recieved - u send a bill for the match?
[2017/09/03 11:28] albertlr Landar: yes.
[2017/09/03 11:29] Koni Lanzius: ahh
[2017/09/03 11:29] albertlr Landar: We ask that you try to pay the match before the end of the year if possible but we will be flexible.
[2017/09/03 11:29] albertlr Landar: but we can send you a bill or reminder anytime you choose.
[2017/09/03 11:29] Arrwyll Barzane: so, those ppl making regular monthly donations to say PayPal can/should continue doing that, right?
Yes, you are correct. We do not want to interrupt the regular use of paypal, that is necessary to our current operations, this campaign is secondary to our current support. Its important to continue to donate what you are currently giving to Osgrid. What we are trying to do is raise additonal funds to cover our short falls, and increase our current balances in paypal and our bank account.
[2017/09/03 11:29] albertlr Landar: now that is at my end, I will be busy handling all this.
[2017/09/03 11:30] albertlr Landar: oh yea, we don't want you to stop your regualr donations, what we are trying to do is increase that, and add to it.
[2017/09/03 11:30] Wizard Atazoth: yes Arrwyll
[2017/09/03 11:30] albertlr Landar: But only as much as anyone can afford.
[2017/09/03 11:30] Arrwyll Barzane: k
[2017/09/03 11:30] albertlr Landar: Especially if you are in houston, TX we would not expect anything.
[2017/09/03 11:30] Caro Fayray: lol
[2017/09/03 11:30] albertlr Landar: Those people need help themselves.
[2017/09/03 11:31] Caro Fayray: yes
[2017/09/03 11:31] Koni Lanzius: yea, bless their hearts
[2017/09/03 11:31] dan banner: its supposed to rain this week :/
[2017/09/03 11:31] albertlr Landar: But we do need your help here.
[2017/09/03 11:31] albertlr Landar: Oh dear, not more. And Dan our President is there in Houston, so he can see how bad it is.

[2017/09/03 11:41] Jo.Pearl hi all
[2017/09/03 11:41] albertlr Landar: That is similar to a money match.
[2017/09/03 11:41] Koni Lanzius: whats that?
[2017/09/03 11:41] Arrwyll Barzane: hiya Jo :))
[2017/09/03 11:41] Jo.Pearl looks all official
[2017/09/03 11:42] albertlr Landar: Maybe for a female donar, so donations $50 they get a nice outfit.
[2017/09/03 11:42] Caro Fayray: it is:)...hi jo
[2017/09/03 11:42] Arrwyll Barzane: waits for Jo to speak
[2017/09/03 11:42] Koni Lanzius: great idea!
[2017/09/03 11:42] Koni Lanzius: a custom outfit!
[2017/09/03 11:42] Jo.Pearl ok to hang for a bit?
[2017/09/03 11:42] Caro Fayray: ok thats a good idea
[2017/09/03 11:42] albertlr Landar: Or say you have a tropical oar which you would offer for someone donating $100
[2017/09/03 11:43] Koni Lanzius: yea!
[2017/09/03 11:43] Koni Lanzius: there are some brilliant creators here!
[2017/09/03 11:43] Foxx Bode: 100 $ Donators can get an invite to "The OneHundred". But you dont get as much as a shirt for that. Just a tag reserved for max 100 people.
[2017/09/03 11:43] albertlr Landar: What we could do is let the person offering know who donated the required amount and then they could give the donar the premium in world for their donation.
[2017/09/03 11:43] Koni Lanzius: ahh
[2017/09/03 11:44] Ana.Terra boa tarde a todos
[2017/09/03 11:44] Ana.Terra (pt -> en): good afternoon to all
[2017/09/03 11:44] Arrwyll Barzane: hi Ana
[2017/09/03 11:44] Aussie Envee: Hi Ana
[2017/09/03 11:44] albertlr Landar: So anyone that wishes to offer a premium also use the email and let me know.
[2017/09/03 11:45] albertlr Landar: We will post in the forum more info on all this, and don't hesitate to ask me questions if it is unclear.
[2017/09/03 11:45] Koni Lanzius: i have my hands full with grid and tutorial videos but I can offer custom videos once I have more time
[2017/09/03 11:45] Koni Lanzius: dance video, etc
[2017/09/03 11:45] albertlr Landar: And lastly we need someone to come up with a premium T-Shirt for the campaign, maybe with a carnival motif for every donar to get that particiaptes.
[2017/09/03 11:46] Caro Fayray: we can spread the word to creators too...asking them to contribute gifts
[2017/09/03 11:46] albertlr Landar: They can then wear it if they wish to show they have contributed.
[2017/09/03 11:46] albertlr Landar: yes, please do.
[2017/09/03 11:46] Koni Lanzius: we also need a old timey carny poster once we have the event set up

[2017/09/03 11:46] albertlr Landar: And give the creators our email if they wish to contribute a premium or original item to the campaign.

[2017/09/03 11:47] albertlr Landar: So I do need everyone here working on their part as much as they can.
[2017/09/03 11:48] paela argus: peoples want see event in calendar or in event page flyer can send me info on my mail in contact on the website
[2017/09/03 11:48] Caro Fayray: maybe could be arranged to havean admin present all the way thru?
[2017/09/03 11:48] Arrwyll Barzane: i may have missed it, but is the campaign ongoing, never-ending, ever-lasting?
For now we will probably limit this campaign from now until Oct. 1st. We always need support but don't want to burden people nagging them all the time for donations. Our donation page is always open to those that can and want to donate. And we try to put reminders around the grid for new comers also. But word of mouth from one user to another is really the best way to get the message about this campaign and our on going need for people to support the Grid.
[2017/09/03 11:48] Caro Fayray: a w/e long party?
[2017/09/03 11:49] albertlr Landar: And once we can determine which DJ's can participate starting September 29th we can give times.
[2017/09/03 11:49] Caro Fayray: ah ok
[2017/09/03 11:49] albertlr Landar: We can go all weekend if we get people to help us.
[2017/09/03 11:49] Wizard Atazoth: I have a dunk tank we can use in the carnival to try and dunk people in water for donations. lol
[2017/09/03 11:49] Koni Lanzius: so Caro we can set Sept 29th as the opening day of the carnival, eh?
[2017/09/03 11:49] Caro Fayray: lol wiz
[2017/09/03 11:49] Thirza Ember: sorry i came in late, but I'd be glad to use our HG Safari pages and groups to help promote the event
[2017/09/03 11:49] Caro Fayray: yes

The main Carnival Campaign will just be the weekend of Friday Sept 29th to Sunday Oct.1st. So it should not conflict with any other events during the following week. We would still have some things up if some visitors or others wish to donate to our campaign. But most things will have been shut down by then.
[2017/09/03 12:00] LaNani Sundara: hi Foxy dear :)
