Seems like we receive almost daily requests for monetary donations to some “charity” only to find out that only a small percentage actually reaches the actual charity. A lot of different hands gets a piece of the funds and the collection process is a for profit business.
As a result of this, a long time ago, I decided that instead of a handful of dollars I would contribute equipment and organizing experience (volunteer) to a handful of charities.
My real contributions are;
- event coordination,
- event communication, and
- radio equipment (ham or commercial)
With this said, if you are a local non-profit organization and need radio equipment for an event, we may be able to come to an agreement.
