"Help a Verd'ika Fund" gets it's own bank account!
« on: Jan 23, 2010, 09:46 AM »

"Help a Verd'ika Fund" which started in 2007 has helped children and families across the United States.  Last year the fund raised $1300 to go towards helping underprivileged and sick children receive a present filled Christmas they may not have received otherwise.  By administering it's own charity funds, Mandalorian Mercs ensures that 100% of all charity money goes directly to those that need it.  

With the charity fund growing to such a large proportion, it has become necessary to separate those funds from the operating funds of Mandalorian Mercs (which is donated by it's membership and supporters).  Also, starting in 2010 the Mandalorian Mercs will be taking the "Help a Verd'ika Fund" international!  That means Clans and Squads stationed around the world will be able to apply for fund sponsorship.

We can never forget that children are the world's most valuable resource.  Our job is not to change lives, but inspire children to work at overcoming their adversities and giving back to their communities.

This is great. I can only imagine the glowing eyes of the children...

We can never forget that children are the world's most valuable resource.
I totally agree. Hope this year's Verd'ika Fund becomes even bigger than last year's.

If every clan went out and ran at least 1 Bounty Hunt (Jail and Bail) a year, then the fund would be over flowing.  ;D

Well, I can run this past my guys. We're not a clan yet, but we're more than enough people and have an event in June.

Call me clueless, but what exactly is a Jail and Bail Bounty Hunt?  Is there a thread that lists the different "events" we do?

Totally awesome stuff about the Verd'ika Fun!  Good words Mand'alor.   :)

Where did the funds end up going to last year? I don't remember seeing an annoucement. I know it was divided up to two clans, but I don't remember seeing a post or any pics from the families that it went to like the years before last.

Because we did something new and split it up this year it's caused a bit of delay in some things.   Falco clan has the other half and should actually be doing their event this weekend.  Naast clan received one half and a news article was posted talking about it.

From what I understand, it's like a ransom. Whatever event you are doing, like a convention with a booth, or a comic book store, or even a movie theater or store, you get a lot of PR about it first. Then you "kidnap" one of the important people, like the store manager, and then try to get the patrons to "bail them out" by donating or pledging to donate. It's all legit and for fun. Usually, from what I hear, those who get kidnapped have the most fun begging people for donations.

I'd love to do this if the BVC had a jail set up.

The Bounty Hunt game goes like this:  People pay to set up bounty contracts on their friends or family.  A bounty hunting team is dispatched to find the bounty, cuff them then bring them back to the jail cell.  The bounty can either pay of their bounty (which is 1/2 of what was paid to jail them) or serve out their time which is determined by the amount put down on the contract ($1 per min).
