As we are still getting updated on the needs of the House and Tawy I wanted to remind people of the many ways to contribute to the House. As well as give you an update on Tawy and some new features in our fundraising efforts!
Having funds set aside for the House and especially for Tawy is important. Winter in the midwest has been up and down which contributes to wear on everyone’s property. Our local Tawy contact is hoping to get some solid maintenance and upkeep numbers once the snow season ends. Specifically we will be looking over how this winter has effected Tawy. Please remember Tawy is a resource for everyone and is there for all of us to use. More and more events are being held at Tawy for the community so we are always in need of funds to keep it in its best condition to continue to be of use for everyone.
If you would like to help with fundraising but do not feel comfortable donating money or don’t have the ability to at this time no worries! There are many things you can do to help out.
Whether you have time to volunteer in the fundraising staff or to volunteer a skill or service for donation gifts. We are always in need of people who are willing to give us a hand. Having a variety of donation gifts motivates donators and gives us the ability to give something back to those who donate. If you are interested in contributing a skill, service, or item as a donation gift please email me. Or check out the Donation Gifts page.
Even if you are unable to contribute time or services we have a new way people can help. Through ebay a person can auction an item and donate a certain amount of the profit to the House. The percentage of donation can be pin pointed by the seller. Everything from 10% to 100%. If you do have some extra items you have been wanting out of your house you can use this cause to motivate yourself for some spring cleaning! The information can be found here. When you do list an item on ebay feel free to post about it to let people know what is available.
Having local gatherings can be wonderful and spirit feeding. Getting to know your siblings in the House is a great experience. Hosting a meet-up or just attending is the perfect way to bring us all closer as a community! If you are planning to host a meet-up and want to help the House in fundraising, please let us know. There may be a simple or fun way that your meet-up can help Tawy and the House.
In the past the House has done its private auction. Nothing has been announced or planned as of yet. But I know people look forward to it and wanted to let you know it hasn’t been forgotten. As we decide our needs we will update you.
Secret Cow is a way to get emergency financial help to the people who need it. Found on the forum in the official private forums. Secret Cow can be used to help out anyone in the community who needs it. Anyone in the community can go to Secret Cow for assistance. To donate for the Secret Cow you simply donate to the regular donations for the House with a note that states it is for the Secret Cow and if there is a specific listing you want it towards include that as well. Donations to Secret Cow are anonymous. There may also be items needed for Secret Cow instead of money, depending on the listing. Information on how to donate items will be included in that particular listing. If you are in need and a bind please turn to Secret Cow. All information in regards to secret Cow can be found in its forum.
With so many ways to help we hope everyone is inspired to contribute, spread the word, and get to know the many people in the community who keep this wonderful place going. There are many ways to be a caretaker of this community and these are but a few. Spread the word, get people interested, and we will do the same!
