Tally of NORD Donations
« on: June 28, 2011, 11:33:22 PM »
This thread is for us to keep track of the donations and pledges for future donations to NORD.  If you have donated, please make an announcement of it here.  I will then organize the information into the table below.  The amounts under the first table are only those that I am sure have been donated up until now. 

Thank you very, very much to all our donors!  [*MODIFIED 9/22/12]

Sorry Folks, the ball has been dropped here on getting the totals updated. The tally of actual donations is up to date and can be seen in the News Box at the top of the forum.
We´ve got very little to go...

To avoid another year, we need to reach the minimum before Mar. 22. THX

In the "given" column, I think you have some amounts that are so far just pledges.

I'm getting a final total from NORD today.

Thanks

Oh ya.  There's no doubt that that is the case.  But it's difficult to tell from people's posts whether the $ they specify has been given or is going to be given.  Hopefully once people start seeing this table they will send me PM's if I've characterized their giving incorrectly - then I can update. 

Another option is to make the table simpler and only show one total column for total pledged (given + promise to give).  I'd personally prefer the table to retain both columns, but perhaps it will look much cleaner and make more sense with one.  What do you think?

Hey you all, thos forum has 22,500 pageviews per month, and growing.

I was calculating, if we each donated 1 penny (US) per page view, we'd reach our minimum donation of $33.500 in 6 months.

Each of us, put a penny in a pot every time we go to another page of the forum! And donate it a the end of the month for an end to POIS.

You can put me down to pledge $500.

A true test of my person will come out if I can sort myself out and actually deliver that pledge.

That's very generous, Green!  Since no good deed goes unpunished, I'm going to embarrass you on the NSF forum  ;D

Green, thank you!!!

We are 14 who donated/pledged totally : it is 4.24% of all the NSF members !
IF even the suffers, who know how awful it is to get POIS, don t get involved in the donation... who will do it for us?  ???

For once we have a sure coming solution/answer about POIS, it seems like we are missing the opportunity to be relieved. :s

I share your feelings, Habibou.  I don't get it.  I mean, if our members were strapped for cash and people even just made a $5 monthly donation, it would show support, solidarity, strength, and depth for our cause.  And if they're not broke, then what better cause to give 1 day's salary to, than to fight a disorder that has crippled part of your life-time.  I just kinda thought that given this premise, members would be a bit looser with their pocketbooks.  I still hope that rationality will prevail here, because for a relatively small donation, our members can in return receive more value than any doctor's visit or dose of medicine can give them individually.  The key is that we all pull together.

Lately we've been making some pretty large strides forward in the forums - partly due to daveman's work making the POIS Center so efficient.  While it's a great thing, it impacts the fund-raising side.  When progress in the forums begins to slow down, as it eventually will, hopefully our fundraising will gain traction again.

The strides we are making (potentially) are good, but they are not by any means a cure. More than ever now, with these strides, we should be considering thos good research to be able to once and for all say I KNOW WHAT CAUSES POIS. We don't know for sure. There are too many questions still unanswered. The auto-immune proposal seems reasonable, but there are so many of us, EVEN ME who is a prime supporter, who don't know for sure. I couldn;t bet my life on it.

I want to be able to swear by all I know that I KNOW WHAT CAUSES POIS and SEE the path to a REAL CURE.

Only with the type of progress we are making, can we make big progress with our so highly restricted capacity to donate.

It IS hard to find that $5 when there are so many other things out there pulling at the same 5 spot.

Do let our temporary progress fool you! It only HELPS to make our donation more powerful.

That's great everyone.

And yes, I'm in a phase that has me about as poor as a church mouse right, but will be finding the opportunity in these next months to put in my share anyways. Others in the house have to cover rent from time to time to make up the difference I cant make. But for me, this goes beyond even rent, or at least at the same level.

So thanks everybody. I know it can sometimes be difficult to find the funds!!

Ccconfucius, rjmlr, Observer... Thank you, all 3 of you!  Donations have been stagnant for nearly a month now, but these commitments are fantastic gestures and renew my hopefulness.  I've updated your donations/pledges at the top of this thread.  Slowly but SURELY together we will achieve this goal.  And Daveman, pay your rent first.  I think homelessness would be worse than pois.  It's close, but that's worse  ;D

Things are really tight atm due to the financial crisis here in Greece, but I commit to donate $50 within the autumn for the NORD research (and perhaps even more by the end of the year, if my financial situation improves).

Keep up the good work guys. We're relying on you to see an end to this demise.
