Non profits

Hmm non profit organizations. Everyone has a favorite and a reason. Maybe you are a part of one? Maybe you started one, or maybe you want to start one, but don’t know how.

Please comment on your favorite non profit organization, and give a link, quick description, and why you support it.
I’ll start.
Mine is The Phoenix Foundation.
http://phoenixfoundation.9f.com I think.
They help families struck by tragedy. One families father was killed in a freak archery accident. We support them with money and fellowship.

Two of my friends friends were brutally murdured. This foundation was started because of that tragedy and has grown to me a fairly large organiZation with high goals and morals.

I am the main tech guy for the organization. (if you can’t tell by the half finished web site lol.)
That’s why the site is a huge fail whale.

Please reply! Also add how someone could support your organization 🙂

Phoenix Foundation Fundraiser

I don’t normally, and I won’t nrmally blog about these things, but sometimes… yeah lol.

The Phoenix Foundation is a non-profit organization raising hope for people in need.

This is a local organization, who’s goal is to provide support for families who’s lives are struck by tragedy.

They are raffling away a 2009 Ford Focus. The drawing will be help on december 6, 2008, and ticket prices are just $10.00 per ticket. Only 2500 tickets are being sold, so you have a pretty good chance.

This is a local event, however, anyone may enter, please contact me for information. My mother is a member of the foundation running this event, so I would be able to sell as many tickets as you would like to buy.

Here is the website, www.phoenixfoundation.9f.com

I personally built this site, and it’s not very good or finished, but it is what it is.

Please help me support this cause, and get the word out to anyone who might be interested.

THANKS!!

PS, must be 18 to purchase tickets, winner need not be present.

For more information, contact me directly, or one of the foundation members at (760)247-2290 or (760)963-9500

Growing Up

I decided I need to blog some more about what’s goin’ down in the world of EnIgMa! Coming soon is a list of Enigma approved music. 🙂

So today after I got off work, I went into a truck stop to get a soda. I walked out as a HUGE black dude rolled up in an older car just BLASTING his crappy rap music.

Unfortunantly he didn’t realise how offensive his music was to everyone else there.

So, me, being the ADULT I am, let him know how much I disliked his music by blasting some death metal in his direction. I then decided that was a bad idea and left rather hastily lol.

But it was FUNNY! That dude gave me the WORST look EVER.

🙂

Dude

Ok. So like I promised, here is the story.

Our course is member owned. The members vote on issues and such. This is primarily a retirement community. Not in one, but most of the members are retired or close.

Because of this, they were opposed to making the club semi-private. They thought they could get out of debt eventually by changing nothing.
They were SO wrong LOL.

2 years later the younger members took over. They got a club deep In debt. They decided something had to be done, so the dues were raised. About $100. That’s it… 100 members quit in protest. So in order to balance this out, the dues had to be raised again.

Eventually, the club was down to about 200 members and the dues were at 250% of what they were. Not even this helped :p

Eventually, the members voted to bring in a management company to take over. Unfortunantly the board still controlled the managment company. After 3 months of severe cuts and other annoying crap the decision was made to sell the club.
That’s it I think. 🙂
