Thread: LEF Charity
05-14-06, 08:13 PM #1
Considering the enormous number of members LEF has obtained, I was thinking such a great group could find a good cause to support. I've seen a lot of sites that have donation areas, and they support a group or organized charity with the donations. Any feedback? Just came to me as I was looking at a bunch of police charity events, like the police bike ride through Virginia to the DC officer memorial. Toss out some ideas, and site owners maybe you could say if you think this is doable?
IDEAS SO FAR
Fund for families of officers killed in line of duty
St. Baldricks - fund to fight childhood cancer

Now that is a classy idea.

The COPS (concerns of police survivors) would be another good organization to consider donating to.Thereís a promise I need you to make
While Iím gone you take care of the love
And Iíll deal with the hate.
Donít worry about me; Iíll be all right
Just care for your children and sleep tight
Iíll keep you safe on my watch tonight

I like this idea!Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!

Awesome Idea. Oh yeah don't forget starting at 0000 hours its Police Officer's Week .Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.
Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.
May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

If we can agree on doing this, I would be willing to collect checks via mail. I'll even send email receipts and keep records that I'll share with everyone so you know I'm not skimming a cut off the top
Any ideas for a cause/organization/group to donate to? I'll keep a running list on the first post when I get input from anyone.

Before LEF starts giving away money.......
...... I imagine they would like to see SUPPORTING MEMBER
in pretty green letters above everybody's user name here!

JACKPOT....we have a winner!!!
Once we've built up more supporting members, Will and I will be happy to donate to a charity, set the whole thing up, and run it.

Another thing that I suggested to a certain mod a few days ago, is you could also have a "supporting member" payment option that is $10 to LEF and $10 to the charity.

That's a great idea, Katie - if we could get a separate tag for those who donate to the charity, that would raise awareness of it and increase site pride Probably increase membership if people see us doing good things.

I recommend doing something for families of LEO's killed or seriously injured in the line of duty
05-22-06, 10:44 PM #19
Excellent idea Katie - I'd definitely be willing to go with that.

This would be a great idea and a very worthwhile endeavor. I concur.Job description as told by an Old Timer: "...drive fast cars, look at pretty women, and drink coffee".
