    isnt this the donate to haiti thread?
    na, it's about donating to the REAL people, who have REAL LIVES and FAMILIES, who have been affected by this emotionally as well as financially.

    unlike the fakers in all those 3rd world countries.

    If you are that passionate and have that much empathy for these people then give them a bed to sleep in, a place to shower, a decent meal and a helping hand around their home. A small donation seems to be all it takes these days to make someone feel like they've done something. Like I said the intentions are good but small amounts of money is (mostly) worthless in this situation.
    I cannot supply any of the above, as I live too far away.

    I sort of see where you are coming from, but if I can donate $20 to get someone a feed, or help bed them down or keep them warm for a night then im all for it.

    Not to make me feel better, to make them feel better.

    BTW $20 from me.

    Shouldn't the earthquake commission fund and cover this? Even if it is more than $100,000 surely people have insurance?

    We want to get some money together that people can get over the next couple of days instead of waiting weeks for payouts.

    Some of you people may not realize but not everyone on GP is a student, people have families and personally I want to give them as much help as I can.

    Send it to Manc, the mans got kids to look after.

    Otherwise either the USAR's or some form of CHCH charity, I think the USAR's did an incredible job yesterday!

    I'm happy with it to go directly to a GP member or a charity, I'm sure ruski won't mind using a trusted admin/mods bank account if it'll give people more piece of mind.

    If I had money to spare (damn being paid fortnightly) I would contribute. After the quake happened I had a quick look around the house, a quick look outside, then just sat at the PC all morning...now thinking back about it I coulda got out there and done a lot to help etc. Feeling pretty meh about it now.

    Will see what I can spare come Thursday.

    I really can't believe you people are COMPLAINING about this.

    **** guys lets donate thousands to a guy for a car which bears no benefit what so ever (no offence Mettler) but when it comes to people in ACTUAL need we won't do a thing. **** yea everyone is rich and can afford to eat out every night so they don't need money. **** yea who needs money to go entertain their children to get their mind off probably the most horrifying thing they have been in while the parents work out what the **** they are going to do not having a house to live anymore and where the hell they are going to sleep tonight.

    Who needs clothes when everything was destroyed by water etc. **** clothes we don't need them were rich, money has no benefit what so ever. **** yea.

    **** yea GPFORUMS is awesome. ****ing stupid ****s.

    Misha put me down for $20.

    I'm happy donating some money. If a Christchurch GPer can have a feed and a "chill out" beer on me it's all good.

    Please put up some bank details and I will make a deposit.

    To the haters if you don't approve of GPForums Earthquake relief fund for whatever reason show a bit of respect for the affected members and their families and stay out of the thread.

    I'll donate something to a GP member if there's something specific that needs money put towards. Seems pretty vague ATM.

    Basically, Manc or someone needs a good story of something they need replacing/fixing that they can't get insurance or whatever for.

    If you prefer, you can transfer your pledged amount upon request once a claim is found.
    Also, if one of the mods would rather take control of this, let me know and I will transfer what is there currently.

    Also, I can't believe people are bitching. **** you, honestly. Don't have anything good to say, then **** right off from this thread with your shit-ass assumptions and retarded generalizations.

    I am currently discussing the situation with two people that would benefit from this fund. They do not want to be named and I will discuss it with those that are kindly donating privately to decide on the appropriate course of action.

    Care to enlighten people? Obviously the OP doesn't feel the need to, and instead just wants money going into a bank account (his?)
