Default Blowout Involvement with Charities?

Hey all! (not exactly sure where to post this, however I'll try it here! )

For those who haven't gotten the chance to know me here yet, hello! My name is Benny, and I am currently a sophomore in high school.

Throughout the summer, I've been thinking of a couple goals/achievements that I want to accomplish this upcoming year. One of the primary objectives on my list is to start a charity!

Here's the ideal breakdown:

I'd like to raise $10,000 to support the RAINN Foundation (Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network), an outstanding organization that provides relief and care to rape victims, and they also educate the public about the dangers of this heinous crime (and how to identify/prevent rape).

However, I feel as if it would be beneficial to involve my favorite hobby (card-collecting) with raising money to support the cause!

I have already been in contact with several individuals (e.g. a custom card maker, a rape crisis counselor, my local rape crisis center, etc...), and I thought it would be a great idea to have generous members of the community sign cards like real-life athletes and auction them off on eBay to support RAINN.

For example:

I sign a card (that will be professionally made...I know a guy ). On the back, it is serial numbered and states how I have pledged to raise money to support RAINN. I will then auction these on eBay with 100% of the profits benefiting the RAINN foundation, and BAM! Soon enough, we've hit our goal!

I suppose the entire point of the post is to take names (not commitments...just to see if there is interest) to volunteer to be featured on a card...the card will look similar to this:

DEN1013 AUTOGRAPHED YOU TUBER CARD + MAINE4SUZE COOKIES! | eBay 4.m1423.l2649

I believe that if enough members choose to sign a couple cards and there is enough great interested in this magnificent community, that we can reach our goal of $10,000 within a year from now!

I'd appreciate it so much if you could kindly comment down below with your thoughts, suggestions, questions, whether you'd have an interest in signing cards to support the cause, and anything that could be helpful!

Thank you!

- Benny

there is a very, very, very slim chance of this happening, but it could be a big money maker...PM me.

I'd be more than happy to help out.

The guys from Youtube did something like this, once and I think they raised a little over $1,500 on blogtv that night.

Thanks. You're correct, and I have already received permission from RAINN to run the promotion! They call it "RAINNmakers!"

Thanks man! Really? Guys on YouTube? Do you know their usernames? I have a little over 400 subscribers on YouTube, but perhaps I could speak with them and work something out. Thanks!

Yep! I've already received permission from RAINN to do so. Thanks again, and I will definitely be in contact with you if I need your help. Thanks!

Just curious, how is your "guy" printing these cards "professional"? Legit printing is very pricey.

Thanks for the question. Honestly, I'm not exactly sure "how" or "why" or the specifics of how he does it, but he is VERY talented with it! Here's a video of an exquisite card he made!
