Some extra help for the Incline/Manitou Springs

Postby Floriado_82 » Mon Sep 23, 2013 8:09 pm

Hey all. I hope I'm posting this in a good place. The "Incline Friends" are trying to raise a huge sum of money to match state grants they have applied for. I started a small kick starter to help them out. Its not much but anything helps. Here is a link http://www.gofundme.com/4h7ug8

Thanks in advance for anyone who wants to help out. I know there are so many area's affected but this one hits close to home.

No.
Look at every setback, failure, and time you feel down in your life as a temporary, fixable condition. That is how you never give up and keep moving onwards.

If you've never heard of "gofundme" and don't want to trust a first-time poster, you can donate directly to the Incline Friends group here:
http://inclinefriends.ning.com/
Nothing personal, but why go through an anonymous middleman? Furthermore, gofundme charges a 5% commission.

Hi "Jim Davies"

Yep donating directly is great too. I am using the crowd funding to give some extra reach from people who are not necessarily living in the area.
On the gofundme page I even have the Incline Friends "linked" so you can donate directly.

I have a few deals going on with free t shirts and gifts for those donating threw gofundme that you will not get by donating directly.

In the end I don't care how anyone does it. Just as long as the incline and the town benefit.

Take care everyone. Be safe up there. It was pretty messy on Monday.
