funinthealps Posted March 14, 2006 Share Posted March 14, 2006 The guidelines seem a little grey to me. After reading about people getting booed down by GC.com for trying to sell inappropriate items, holding events in Disney World, etc... I'm just wondering if it would be a big no-no to hold an event, or a series of events where a portion of the proceeds would go to an organization like the CFF (Cystic Fibrosis Foundation)? I have a cousin who reciently died from CF and am trying to come up with a way to help raise money to find a cure. I was just thinking that rather than a token $5 or $10 fee to enter an event it would be $15 or $20 and at the end a check would be donated to the CFF. As I like to think of it, Geocaching for a Cause. Geocoins could be made etc... I know the word "Sponsorship" sets off red flags as well but I have experience organizing events and am just trying to do some good in the world and promote Geocaching in a positive way. If GC.com rains on my parade and something like this would be deemed as a "non-official" event and therefore information on the event would be struck from these forums I'd like feedback as to how I can get the word out to good hearted geocachers who would like to take part in such events. Any thoughts? Thanks, Funinthealps Quote Link to comment
