I'm pleased to announce we've finally got a donations page up.
You can find it here: https://voteflux.org/donate
I'd also like to soft-announce an idea we have for fundraising:
Kickstarting a Kickstarter
There's a kickstarter campaign for a new "cooperative board game about building people power and taking on oppressive systems to create change". This sounds right up our alley, and we get a bunch of benefits if we fund a high tier too!
We're looking to raise $2,300 AUD before the end of October, and the great thing is that, during this time, we have a $2 match for every $1 donated!. That means if you donate $100 Flux receives $300! (Up to a total of $2,300, which covers the top tier of the kickstarter).
One of the main reasons we'd like to do this as a party is that we can have a custom expansion pack built around our cause. This will then be accessible to many groups around the world that play the game, increasing our reach and providing an effective way of reaching many people. We also get our logo and details up on their site, and in the game manual.
The bulk of the kickstarter reward is 65 copies of the board game, which I think would be great to distribute around Australia to our meetup groups to give us something to do besides drinking and chatting. It also means that we can give them away as rewards to people who donate more than $65.
More detail is on the donation page if you'd like to take a look.
