just sitting here thinking about teays thread on stars..(http://www.catfish1.com/forums/showthread.php?t=44854)... i want to commend him personally for that giving spirit...also made me think about something else that has come up in the past. there are those that enjoy this site that are stretching a dollar to make ends meet, and those that, perhaps, could give but haven't done so yet. the star status allows us to see things that non-star memebers don't have access to...perhaps if those that can give but haven't, saw that then they would be persuaded to be donors too. the monies given all go to the same good cause, so, when you get right down to it, it doesn't matter who gets credit for the donation. i am still an advocate of donating a star in anothers name....it just HAS to be beneficial to the BOC in the long run.
