    Wah!!! so fast the PhotoAid kakis reporting liow. Very heart warming

    Ok some updates

    Salvation Army already got their license to do fund raising till 11 June 08 and will be including our fund raising effort in their application to NSCC on top of their blanket cover of direct donations.
    This will be done tomorrow. Details I have given them, photo shoot and print in return for a donation.

    On coming Tuesday they will be releasing a press release about their fund raising activities. If we want them to include our effort in the press release to generate awareness, we need to give them, by Monday, some details ie: location, when, how and how much. After that, our event will be listed on their website.

    During the mini meeting with ortega, the suggestions are:

    Location : Merlion Park
    When : Over 3 weekends, 24 and 25 May
    31 May and 1st June
    7 and 8 June
    How : Shoot and print ( web hosting and downloading possible? )
    How much : $10.00 per print.
    Target : S$10,000.00

    Anyone who can help us get cooperate sponsors to do lump sum donation?

    Please give your input on the above.


    In the mean time, let's get the Manpower List going first.

    1) eikin
    2) ortega
    3) yqt
    4) sjourn
    5) Del_CtrlnoAlt
    6) loupisk
    7) zhangyb
    8) HotSpots
    9) Racoon
    10) yanyewkay
    11) Razor ( this guy better come, he's the one who first started it this time round )
    I get paid more shooting part time ...... damn, I should find more time to shoot part time

    Maybe we should start a new thread to attract new participants. Non photoaid folks may not be reading this thread.

    i think should sort out who is in to organize the event first.

    suggested committee

    official representative - 1 person (handle sponsorship, emergency contacts etc.)

    manpower (networking) - 2 persons (emails, shift allocation, publicity on forums etc. for volunteers)

    manpower (I/C on ground) - 2 persons (to make sure process is running smoothly)

    logistics (planning and setup) - 2 persons (keeping an inventory list, allocate equipment on ground)

    logistics (food and first aid) - 2 persons (meals and first aid)

    donations keeper - 1 person (responsible for donation box, will witness accounting with official representative when passing box to Salvation Army)

    treasurer (optional) - 1 person (keep track of expenses, so that everyone can share the monetary costs end of the day)

    i agree with Razin on the long weekend thing. if possible will be good to start running next weekend. can consider shortening the period to 2 weekends also since there'll be 1 long weekend, and consider whether to push for 1 more weekend after 2nd weekend is done.

    it's good to start early, so that the awareness is still there in public.

    I agreed with this.

    Mileage for the sponsors we should give in terms of like logos and mentions on the banners, posters and website if we're hosting the downloading. But we must keep this our PhotoAid event and not let it end up like a Nikon/Canon/Epson/HP/etc PR event. At the end of the day, it's mine and Ortega's name registered with Salvation Army and I don't want them asking me why is it a Nikon/Canon/Epson/HP/etc event.

    We can compromise but this must still stay a PhotoAid event.

    Actually I was thinking of getting you to help us over the internet while we're on location and maybe going to other website to publicize the event, explaining to them what we're doing, how we're doing it, etc. Also maybe getting the event on stomp, xin website ( the chinese website ), hardware zone, etc. You may not be in SG but your presence, feedback and support is ever so important to PhotoAid

    If we can get one of those stand-alone printer which don't need laptop, than we can keep the manpower down.

    Ortega and I though that will need min 6 person on location.

    2 shooters
    2 printers
    2 sales

    The 2 printers will also be in charge of the collection boxes which will be locked. I be collecting it at the end of the day and sending it to Salvation Army every Monday for counting.

    Of course this will be the worst case scenario in terms of manpower. Maybe one more as the overall in charge/logisitic/runner ?

    logistics (planning and setup) - 2 persons - yqt, yanyewkay, Sjourn, loupisk, jopel, DCA (keeping an inventory list, allocate equipment on ground)

    logistics (food and first aid) - 2 persons - Racoon, loupisk, jopel (meals and first aid)

    donations keeper - 1 person - yqt (responsible for donation box, will witness accounting with official representative when passing box to Salvation Army)

    decide on the I/Cs first, manpower will stream in. from the last round, the roles are not difficult pick up on site.

    That's next weekend.
    Given that Aneikin Skywalker is in training in the land of the raising sun, and the fact that most of the original core group have added small people in their household and are very tied up running the rat race, a little hard lar Bro.
