Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.We are running a 24-hour painting marathon from noon on Saturday, August 16th for Save the Children. Please check out this great charity's work at http://www.savethechildren.org.uk/about-us/what-we-do.
Our target is for a group of us to paint a 15mm Late War German and Early War British FoW WWII army, and some other projects, and sell them off to raise some cash, plus individuals will be painting their own miniature figures for sponsorship pledges. If we can raise £750 we can really help. I have set it up through JustGiving so that there is no need to handle money and so that StC can gain through GiftAid, meaning that an extra 25% on top of what you donate will go to the charity.https://www.facebook.com/charitypaintingmarathon
You can join us at Firestorm Games in Cardiff, or you can paint from home. Be sure to tell us what you are painting and get some pics taken of the finished work. Check out our progress Here's a summary:
1/ A 24 hour painting marathon for charity. Save the Children works in 120 countries (inc. the UK) mainly in South America, Asia, the Middle East and Africa - http://www.savethechildren.org.uk/about-us/what-we-do
2/ Paint soldiers for yourself or contribute to painting an army for auctioning off. Each participant raises £10+ or does a stint on the charity army at Firestorm Games. You pledge to paint a project set by you. It may be a unit of figures, it may be 60 hoplites. Whatever. Get some family members to sponsor you. Chuck some money in yourself.
3/ If you can't make it, set yourself a painting target and get it done at home. Chuck your £10+ in or gain sponsorship.
