In case you are feeling generous ... (charity)
August 05, 2018 11:28PM
Most people kind of realize that in the last couple of years I have not spent much time with knives, this is because I started working with underprivileged kids and kids with various challenges (physical and mental health concerns), mainly in an educational support capability.

It has been extremely challenging as many of these kids have behavioral issues, and at times working with kids with severe anxiety and depression can be emotionally draining - however it has been extremely rewarding.

Over the years people have asked me on many occasions do I accept donations, and I never have - BUT - if you have ever wanted to, or know someone who might, please look at and share the following links :

A few links :

[www.facebook.com]

[www.gofundme.com]

Note while I appreciate any donations, simply sharing the link in any formation also helps tremendously.

As an aside, I will be putting up more videos shortly as I have some new knives coming, and I am also going to be auctioning off some of my more collectible blades for the above charity as quite frankly while I am attached to some of those knives, they don't mean as much to me as the work I am currently doing.

It was fake, those types of scammers are really common (oh hey, we will make a *large* donation, we just need a $90 fee).

May I donate a Serrata made by me for any auction that you might run?

Stuart,

Yes, thanks.

Hi Cliff

Yes.

On the spur oif the moment, I have organised a raffle over at Edgematters, for one of my Serratas...
£10-00 a ticket, with 50 tickets...
That way, you get hopefully more than an auction, and I do the work... smiling smiley

Once the dust has settled, I will send the whole bang shoot to you, and the knife to the winner...

Hopefully that works for you.

You are really doing a great thing with these kids. All the best with their success!

Thanks man.

Cliff
would it possible to privately pass me a paypal Address for yourself to receive the all the funds directly from the raffle ticket holders?

If I do it all, I might end up with an NZ tax bill for money I never actually "received."
Plus, there are Paypal fees which will be lost with each subsequent transaction.

Sure, just send me an email.

Email sent to Gmail account, Ciff

Uh Cliff

a Paypal address would be good at this stage, please?

Please send to to the Gmail, or here in a PM?

Stuart, the third post on this thread has a paypal link, maybe Cliff means for you to try that?
Re: In case you are feeling generous ... (charity)

I realise that, but it means that with a one time use PP, Cliff can see that all the funds are coming from Edgematters folk, and that way I know that they have paid, and so are ellible for the draw.

If Cliff wants it differently, we can try and work with that.

I am trying to avoid a nightmare of working out who has paid, and who needs to.

I have sold all fifty tickets.
I appreciate that Cliff does not come here often, so I am in limbo right now.

Yup and I have sent an email a week or so back.

If I could source his phone number, I would phone it right now.
7-30 am in his time zone. so maybe later on...

Ok, just wanted to make sure. Sorry I can't be of more help.

I believe Kyley has his phone number, and he's active on Instagram...maybe you could get it through him then.

Yeah, I made a donation through the PayPal link but it came back as returned recently, don't know if it was because Cliff didn't claim it, or what.

Luis,

Sorry, I had a personal issues a couple of weeks ago which kept me away from anything.

Anyone needs anything, just send me a regular email (cliffstamp@gmail.com).

I had not used paypal in a LONG time, and didn't know you had to approve the funds, and I have aggressive spam filters which kept all the notifications away.

I did send an a email to that regular email.

As I have explained in this thread, I just need a one-time use gmail address to send money to.
It would mean that you would need to tell me that all fifty have paid, so that I can raffle off the Serrata.

Edgematters is a troubled forum right now, and might not be around in a week's time, hence my haste.

If this is a mission, please tell me.
Sorry about the hassle.

Stuart
