So, Brixton and a couple of us Steves got talking about doing a little CFC fundraiser, possibly for the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation, though other ideas are welcome. This is a post to get the idea of a CFC Fundraiser started, get a feel for whether this could gain any traction, brainstorm some ideas on what we could do, how we could do it and what we could do with the money raised.
In my limited experience with this sort of thing, my initial thought is that Kickstarter might be a nice way to organize the project once it gets going, though there might be better ideas. But more importantly, we need to figure out what we could do to raise money. Something like a Commentariat Calendar would be fun but have a very limited opportunity, as I doubt many people outside of CFC regulars would actually be interested in something like that. Similarly, tee shirts with our favorite memes could also be fun, but probably has the same limited opportunity.
However, I had a thought that maybe we have people submit their picture wearing their Spurs gear and a small donation ($20?) and, assuming we get enough pictures, we could create a collage of portraits that come together to create an iconic Spurs picture, like Bale and AVB hugging or something, or if rights are an issue it could just form the team logo.
But I'm sure there are better ideas, which is what this comment section is for. So go nuts.
