    Maybe start a new thread and add a poll to that...make sure you outline exactly what the money will be spent on and how it will all work

    Worked it out, actually initial interest is best and then we can set out all the details.
    Mind you the original thing I was trying to get done was weekly/monthly awards, you know the non prize etc. This would be a wrap up of all the hopefully good things that have happened and a few of the more silly things.

    The rest evolved out of a comment!

    Hi Bo,

    The awards idea IS being discussed and looked at. Will get back to you once a final answer is decided upon.

    Cool, thanks DA, I was just letting Dorte know that I couldn't put all the details of the "Slush Fund", as it wasn't my idea, I said that I would be happy to contribute.

    Same here BOH.. "slush fund" wasn't my idea either, i just offered to open & manage the bank account & do the gift shopping etc

    I do prefer to have the "slush fund" money to help with rescuing dogs from death row etc at pounds, transport costs etc etc.

    No, i wont be in a slush fund nor do i ever want to receive anything from it if it goes a head

    I have been ripped off by people on forums, people I have met in real life who needed help and money and support, they suckered in a lot of people, thankfully I didnt give them thousands of dollars as some other people did

    Do you all really know each other? There is no way i would allow my money to be in the hands of anyone else, doesnt matter who it is, if something happened, you had a falling out, the person in charge of the money went broke and needed it, could you be 100% sure that they would not touch the money others have put in?

    I think it is a silly idea and if people want to send something to another member, they can arrange it case by case between private messages and do it that way.

    It was GSDs4EVER that made the "slush" fund suggestion!

    I agree with the highlighted comment 100%.
    Or like Shar did, when she needed help financially with a rescue dog she came out and asked us all here to see who would be willing to help.

    But, each to their own opinion.

    Thank you TB for your imput..

    Your words made a lot of sense.

    Maybe we all could come up with another idea to raise funds for dogs in need etc.

    I'm willing to donate to doggy rescue groups whenever i have a few $$$ to spare.

    This post is really what I have been trying to say guys...and why I think it is a REALLY bad idea to be honest.

    If any of the rescue people need help...I am sure whoever can afford/contribute anything will do that, but that is very different than having to do it on a regular basis to keep the "slush fund" running and pay for bank fees etc.
