Sponsorship and Charity Posts.

Hi,
We have changed our policy on posts that ask for donations to a charity or posts that ask for sponsorship.

Until now we have always had a blanket ban on such posts, this wasn't because we were uncharitable but more to do with preventing fraud or opening up our forums to spam charity posts.

From now on we will allow posts requesting sponsorship or donations if they meet the following conditions and it is restricted to a single thread:-

1. It must be for a registered, recognised charity.

2. Collection of any monies is to be done so by the registered charity, online to the registered charity. All monies are to go directly to the charity not to the person being sponsored. A Just Giving page is acceptable.

If a charity is not able to accept online donations then regrettably we can not allow posts asking for donations to these particular charities.

If you meet the above conditions then please make your post in the General Chat forum.

Thanks for doing this Stu, I think it's a really good idea and a welcome addition to the Dibb

I didn't realise we could have sponsored a Dibber doing the Moonwalk at the weekend and would have liked to have done.

That's great! Thanks for reconsidering the position on this.

I know a lot of Dibbers are involved in raising funds for worthy causes, it means we can help each other out now.

Will there be a forum for such posts or where should they go?

Great idea - most charities allow you to donate straight to them rather than via a third party which makes it easy for us to support DIBBers and worthwhile causes with no risk!
