Mini FReepathon Idea
2/9/13 | Me!!

Posted on 02/09/2013 11:52:52 AM PST by NoGrayZone

Our FReepathon. I did not have any money to give more to my favorite site. However, I did have a few gift cards, with small balances just sitting around.

I checked each and everyone of them to see how much was left. I had 4 in total (one was for .50 cents, lol).

The other 3 totaled $30.77. I was not sure if a cc charge was applied for donations, so I contacted onyx whom referred me to Jim Robinson.

Those last 3 donations from NY posted, were from me and my gift cards, sitting there collecting dust.

If any of you have gift cards sitting around, check the balance. There is a minimum of $3.00 for cc donation to FR.

Smart idea.....when you check the balances left, write down the last 4 numbers of the acct # and write down the amount left. Makes it SO much easier to process to the FReepathon.

I KNOW there are a lot of you with those gifts cards laying around collecting dust because of the small balances left.

THEY ADD UP! If only 10 FReepers had a collection of $30 seperate gift cards, that's an additional $300 bucks!

So go ahead, look in your drawers, wallets, closets, where ever you keep those cards. Look up the balance and donate them to FR!

I’m a monthly donor and I guess should feel satisfied with that. You know, smug that I’m doing my part.

But, you’ve inspired me. I’m going to put my thinking cap on the weekend and see if I can come up with an alternative, too.

We got 29 inches. I forced my boss, yesterday, to close the office today, and then he told us to get the heck out yesterday after the last patient, around 3:30. The snow was not supposed to start upon us until late afternoon. God stated differently and it started early/late morning.

Sandy was the whore of Babylon. This blizzard did not knock out anything. Just a bunch of beautiful pure white I have to go remove so I can head into work on Monday.

Taking the landlords wife advise....do it tomorrow!

I decided to just FReep all day today, which I rarely get an opportunity to do.

Loving every minute of it!

I have a tubberware I put all my change in. Although, I usually cash it when I need food (I once had to sell some gold to pay my rent, how embarrassing).

My cut hours, and now the extra taxes I get to pay, the change will probably pay for my substinance.

I also have 2 cats I am responsible for. Any extra money I have goes to the FReepathon.

$3 is the minimum cc contribution. Anything less then that, by all means, save em up, cash them in and send to FR.

Ah yes, it is beautiful to look at or visit but I wouldn't want to live in it!

It's one thing I miss about So. California. In 90 minutes I could be in Big Bear in the snow, conversely I could be on the beach in sunny warm weather in Santa Monica.

Glad to hear you're doing okay.

Bad news to a good idea...

“Selling raffle tickets over the Internet is prohibited, and is deemed a violation of interstate gambling laws. There are also laws regarding mailing raffle tickets through the U.S. Postal Service., and Licensees are encouraged to contact their local Postmaster for further information on this issue.”

Smug is a sin I believe we all struggle with (including me).

Wow, first time I have heard I had inspired anyone! God Bless you for that (damn smug biting at me).

Someone upthread mentioned collecting their change to donate. Also a great idea.

If you do think of any alternative, PLEASE be sure to ping me!

Awww thanks! But I must confess, I am a “cheapo” who refuses to waste a dime.

Still trying to figure out how to use the one card with .50 cents on it!

Someone posted a thread this morning about the pure white light of snow, which covers the crimson in our world (or something like that).

I was not happy, well, pretty ticked off, at having to remove all this snow to get out, until I read his thread.

I then went outside to see what he was talking about. I was surrounded with nothing but PURE white. Thinking of his thread while taking it in, I actually felt joy!

Yes, I’m still a little pissy (as of now) about having to go clean my car and shovel a bit, however, I already have decided no matter how I feel now, when I go out there tomorrow, I will have Him in mind. I will be doing it for His glory and thanking Him for covering this crimson earth with His great pure white.

All while singing What A Friend We Have in Jesus. I will also pray He helps me with my lower back. I’m usually disabled after shoveling myself out!
