I think the gist of it would be along the lines of this. Everyone that enters pays £1.50 which would ALL go to charity. There would be a CD of your choice (or something similar) as a prize for the winner. So there is the chance to win a prize and even if you don't win you would be giving money to charity. Another suggestion could be that the winner could decide which charity to give to.

However this needs to be discussed within the admins to see if this would be a good idea. I'm reasonably happy to be involved and running it. But what I don't want to be do is running around asking for people to pay £1.50.

I think the DEC ad we run is there for users if they would like to donate to charity and that may be enough. I'm yet to be swayed either way. Sounds a good idea in principle but whether or not it would work is a matter of opinion!

why dont you get it like sponsored or something sponsors like charity stuff and for every person who enters the tournament they have to cough up a quid, its easy advertising for them and good charity work for us

i charity tourney is a good idea and i for one am up for it but with the prize aspect if theres a prize then most of the money will be spent on that and another is how do we go about paying the money i for one have a solo and paypal account so that aint a problem but what about the younger users that havent got these facilities

is no one listening to me? listen with the tsunami appeal they did this, some random businesses and charities set up a website and all you hat to do was click a link and thiose bsuinesses would donate however much money it was and the only benefit they got was the advertising and publicity

why dont we just all donate the money and give the prize to up_and_comin now? =o) save all the hassle

sounds like a good idea though, how about postal orders to the value of £1 then anybody could take part. Advertise the tourny two weeks in advance, send the postal order to a designated address, with your user name ect and there we go....the person recieving the postal orders will go to get them cashed at a post office, buys the winners prize and donates the rest to charity, after the tourny has finished the winner sends there address to funkypool and whoever brought the prize will send it in the post.....and there you have it a charity tourny :O) the only problem i can think of is the fact that somebody wil have to give out there address which could obviously cause problems but surely there is a way around it somehow?? tell me what you think guys, just an idea :O)

the best way is paypal or for those ppl who don't have it a postal order a week or 2 in advanceand u will recieve a e-mail confiring u in and yes a prize would be gd idea and we send it to a e-mail which eould be better and thanx for all ya surpport keep it up or we could also have the winner decide where the money goes to thanx you all again keep it plz we need more :) tallan "aka lightra"

why dont u pay the money directly to a charity. the other problem is one of trust, whats to stop the person just doing a runner with the money? mean way of thinking but someone had to say it

I know you weren't accussing me triangl, but I can promise if the money got to me it would go to the charity. Knowing a lot of people on here, they would all tell you that is the case.

But anyway I'm not sure this seems to have enough support, it may be easier to directly give to charity if people need to give, I believe DEC has stopped collecting money now.
