Christmas fund raising for TXP Developers

Okay, fund raising has started. If you trust handing the money to a guy like me, here are the… let’s call them rules: ;)

  • we collect donations until December 31st
  • I’ll update this post day by day in order to keep you posted regarding how much we collected and the donors’ names
  • if devs have an on-line wish list I’ll buy stuff from that list, otherwise I’ll ask each dev what he would like to receive
  • on January 1st I’ll split the total amount collected in three (we have three devs) and proceed with the purchases on Amazon.uk or any other e-retailer of choice
  • if I won’t be able to spend all the money collected in gifts, I’ll send the remaining amount directly to the devs’ PayPal accounts.

That’s it. Any other idea/suggestion/correction?

For donations please refer to my personal PayPal account: fede (at) kero (dot) it.

Under the type of payment please select “Donation” or “Gift” from the dropdown menu, so we won’t pay any PayPal fee (I think).

Thanks to everyone and Merry Festivities in advance to the community. :)

Many thanks to our kind donors:

  • Arjan
  • Destry
  • Gerhard
  • Jelle
  • Joe
  • Jonathan
  • Julian
  • Kostas
  • Lee
  • Marcus
  • Reid
  • Stefan
  • Stuart
  • Willie
  • woof

Total raised:

€ 552 EUR

Hi. I was thinking, since Xmas time is approaching, how about we start a fund raising in order to send some gifts to our devs (in the same fashion Alexandra did a few years ago)?

Anybody up to collecting money via PayPal and then place the orders? If no one else is interested, I could do that.

Re: Christmas fund raising for TXP Developers

Yeah, I’ll chip in…

Don’t think it’s a good idea to “mandate” a minimum contribution though…

Er, I’m not a dev anymore. Don’t get me wrong, I love presents, just not obtained for the wrong reason(s). Just collect what you can, then split it between the active devs. :)
