PING: PAW Committee – funds raised from WD Calendar?
« on: February 10, 2010, 07:25:35 am »
Would it be possible to know how much funds have been raised to date by the WD Calendar project for PAW?

Also, what is the procedure or how, what, where of the funds being handed over to Robin Lines?

I’m just curious as to how the effort we put in has been received…

PS: Has PAW ever thought of doing a ride to Robin Lines just to see hands on the progress and effect of his project with the Wild Dogs? (any excuse for a ride you know) :)

Well, I am going to jump on the bandwagon now and support Misty in the legitimate question.  :laughing4: We all want to know the status of the calendar contribution, how much, what, when, where?
 ???  Are there photo's of the money been handed over to Robin, how has it helped the project, etc, etc.... :deal:

What? Who? Where?

Sorry people. Such a schlepp. The account is not online. Have to go in, get 2 signatories just to draw a statement. ::)

Anyone in Nedbank who can help?

Journeyman – with all due respect, really I mean this sincerely, but we’ve heard that before and it has been more than enough time that has passed for someone to make a plan and to give some feedback.

We worked really hard at this project just to get no response from PAW, which doesn’t make me jump for joy at ever getting involved in another such worthy project for PAW.

If the account is such a problem – then close it and open something that works more efficiently and that is current with the times we live in IMO.

I am sorry if this is off topic, but where can I find a report about the PAW Project?

Again I apologize.

Owe you people big time.

No matter what banking difficulties we encounter, it should have been sorted by now.

I feel shit. You can stop lambasting now.  :biggrin:

This commitee had better get its act together otherwise :violent1:
and we will :violent5:

Its past, or overdue to get your act together. Everyone who has been directly or indirectly involved in fund raising actions, and for that matter every one who contributed in any way, like buying the calendars etc, are all owed answers and should see where the bucks go, if they've even gone anywhere for that matter.
