glangley Posted January 17, 2009 Report Share Posted January 17, 2009 Just sitting around thinking, watching the local news and many people out there in this area are hurting in the pocket book, as they are all over the country. I don't know if it would be financially feasible to do this, or what the logistics would have to be but here's my thought anyway. And this would totally depend on IF Jabo will be doing run's in the future, but my fingers are crossed! A marble run with color combo's based on foods or food related stuff. LIke the old ketchup mustard, egg yolk, watermelon and whatever else we could come up with along these lines. A certain percent of money made off the marble sets would go to help food banks in our local area's. And if we raised more than enough money to cover the cost of the run, or once the cost of the run was covered, then 100% of the remaining money would be donated to the local food banks to help needy familys in this troubled time. I believe that any donations would also be tax deductable as well which may help get donations flowing? maybe?? In my state of Michigan, where the unemployment rate is the highest in the country, there are a tremendous amount of people in need. Many of the local foodbanks are having difficulty just staying open because the local businesses are either not donating as much as they used to , or have closed their doors completely. The general public isn't in a good place financially to donate to them either as many of them are now standing in line hoping to get simple items like bread and milk to help feed their family's. Once again, I really don't know if this would be a feasible task to undertake but the cause is definately a good one, and the need is dire in these troubled times. I thought I would bounce this idea around out there and see what you think, as many of you know a vast more about the logistics of these runs than I ever could. God Bless!
