Cat Forum Donation Fund

Just an idea, I was wondering if it would be a good idea to set up a donation fund, I read loads of cases where (especially with the feral cats) people would like to help them but are financially not as well off as some here. As I live in the UK we don't have the same problems with the feral cats as some of you do in the US.

I would be happy to donate to a fund to help these people out (perhaps by paypal) and I would then know that any donations I made would go to a good cause.

I am sure any contribution would be greatly received and I would be happy for the moderators to distribute any funds as they saw fit.

Just an idea.

Just so you know, there is a problem with feral cats here in the UK too - we TNR many many ferals, and there are hundreds that need new placements on land, farms, etc. Most of it is paid for by the Cats Protection League. Just one word of advice, though - donate directly to the branches, not to the big head company itself. That way, you know your cash is helping animals directly and not paying receptionists wages and building offices, etc.

donations are a wonderful thing, but I don't see how it would work with this forum. Plenty of people would donate, I'm sure... I just don't know how we would delegate who gets the money.

OsnobunnieO is right. It is a good idea though.
