OOOKAAY folks, this thread has gone a weeee bit quiet of late, so not only bumping back to the top but also a favour to ask...
I'm currently building the site - first off hand up, it's taken a little while longer than anticipated, but that's because we're trying to do the job right. It's our hope that this is not a one off site, but also can be used for future auctions / fundraisers etc - it's not that that's slowing me down, it's the full-time employment and clients dragging their heels... so, poo to them i say - time to get the page up and get some funds rolling in.
So, I need a couple of things from you guys - first, if you are donating a prize, if you haven't already - could you Pm me with the following
1. The desired name you wish to be published on the website (at present i am using MSW monikers, but happy to publish any other alias you may be known by)
2. Any website address / link you may wish published
3. If appropriate a little bit about you / your business / your interest / your reason - whatever
^^ The Above is purely to give some credit where it's due, any person who has dontated or contributed in anyway will get a credit and a link back - it's the least we can offer for such amazing support and generosity chaps.
Secondly, I may need a little bit of help with some of the descriptions... I'm currently listing all of the prizes individually (they will be bundled if appropriate for the prize draw) - as I'm going through the build my time would be better served in the bowels of the code / design - so if you, or anyone else has any time to spare all i need is to go through the thread - pick out each individual item - trawl the net for a relevant description and past it into a text document. No original writing needed. It literally is a copy/paste/cut/shut job. I can then put all the info into the site. I'm happy to do this myself, but the site will be up a lot quicker if somebody could spare an hour or so.
Finally, as you know, this month is the anniversary of little Timmy's passing - and so far Tim and Kate have managed some truly amazing feats in setting up the trust, reaching charitable status, helping kids who really need it. Timmy's memory lives on in his legacy which is growing from strength to strength, helping other kids and families - it's actually quite a spectacular, mind blowing achievement. So to celebrate this truly inspiring little chap it would be amazing if we could get the site up and running this month. I realise that i could well be shooting myself in the foot here, but it's good to have a deadline to work to, so I will do what I can. Bear with me.
So, apart from the above, if you can start pushing this raffle, make some noise, get some interest, get it on peoples radars then we can hit the ground running.
Chaps, if you can do this, I will demand from the great swell gods that you are all served with perfect head-high lined up waves this weekend
Thanks all x
