Ten Days...

In ten short days, the Fourth Annual Kilted to Kick Cancer Fundraiser begins. A whole month of kilty goodness, yay! (and it finally kicks me in the behind to FINALLY make good on some photos I am woefully remiss in providing. Mea culpa!)

The big news is that KTKC is now its own non-profit organization, so that tax-deductible donations can be made directly to KTKC itself. No more middlemen, every cent you donate goes directly to prostate cancer research through the good folks at Kilted to Kick Cancer. I know some folks have been reluctant to donate, given the practices of some companies that accept donations and all, so this year there's no questions.

Ambulance Driver is seeking donations for the top fundraisers, so if anyone has any leads, give him a holler and help him out. 

That is all.

Glad to hear it is on its own. I had problems with the former "charities" that make its operators rich.

Well, KTKC has its board meetings by conference call, pays the board members nothing, and got its seed money for the 501(c)3 out of the treasurer's own pocket.

And while we haven't yet decided which research entities will get the money we raise, the vast majority of money raised will go directly to research and the absolute minimum to administrative overhead, instead of the other way around.
