Kinda bored this evening and wondered if anyone would be up for investing £1 into a pot and then harnessing our vast knowledge to try and build it up by buying and selling or something? Could donate some of the money to charity when we make our 1st million??

so it is
allstar,
majicjay1986,
rehydrated,
Deek43,
Wonkey
Scabbers
dmissy13
jenniejack
TitchImp
Teatowel

Depends on who would look after the money

When levis_24 is allowed to post, this will get off the ground.

Count me in :thumbsup:

The best thing to do is appoint a trustee and do it for charity. You could try and hold it in a high interest savings account.
#5
Yeah was just thinkin of that. I suppose we could hav a vote or even hang onto our money until we have a goal or item to buy or invest in?? need to build a trustworthy group ultimately. what are ur thoughts?
#6
I have a business idea. I just need £14,000 invested to get me off the ground. I have an awsome domain. Any takers? lol

Excellent idea. Firstly shall we wait till we have a certain amount of members and then appoint a trustee. Perhaps a trusted mod?? So next step lets see who's in??:thumbsup:

Do you have trustee experience? Do you know what this entails?
#11
nah, count me out. too many banks / lenders / associations / charities out there already, some with trustees who disappeared with the money ... trust only yourself and donate to charities you know.
#12
If we could see if there are 10 people at least who are up 4 it for starters. I think it could be good fun. I know it's hard to not trust anyone but i am sure we could find a trusted trustee or a way around it?

Hi all
I did try and set up a charity 2 years ago. But there is loads to it,and I put it on the back burner. I had/have a domain name that I was going to use,and I actually did something to try and raise money. In other words,I had an idea and I tried to put it in motion...
I made a documentary. Call it a video diary where I recorded myself while doing a water fast. I was hoping to get it edited and out as a dvd and the money was going to charity. As it was to do with food/starving/water/hunger etc. I thought WaterAid would have been a good charity to give to,and I was going to try and affiliate myself/tie in with them,but I never got around to it.
I still have the fast,my video footage on HD and it would be great if we could get it edited and out there. I am willing to donate all proceeds from it to agreed upon charity from the sale,or we could maybe set up another non-profit collective organization and agree on who/what we should help.
Let me know what you guys think...

Awww, this sounds like a good idea and I'm too late!
