Fund local road reconstruction

Has there ever been any discussion about setting up something like a legal or medical fund that could help out MetaFilter users unable to afford? Or perhaps a broader MetaFilter hardship fund? [more inside]

Bet on books, help kids get books

The Morning News is throwing their annual Tournament of Books to figure out the best book of 2007. A new twist this year is the Making Book Tournament where you bet on what the winner will be, with the proceeds going to First Book, a literacy foundation. MeFi is dollar matching bets up to $1,000 for the contest.

Charity contest idea

Last week's fundraiser became a sad debacle, and there's certainly no point retreading that ground. But I really like the idea of MeFites raising money for charity, and I think it's fun to make it a competition. I came up with an idea for a new, and hopefully friendlier and less divisive, contest for charity. I'd like to hear what you folks think. [more inside]

MeFi Help for Katrina Students?

We used to sponsor a Mefi scholarship. There will be so many displaced students from Katrina - maybe we could reinstitute some Mefi scholarships for kids who need to relocate or change colleges? Just a potential idea for a way we could hep as a community.

Cheap bastards

from todays' dack.com

"What's wrong with this picture? In a few short weeks Andrew Sullivan's weblog has collected almost $3500 in microdonations. By contrast, Metafilter -- a community site where people feel like stakeholders, and presumably have a greater motivation for giving -- has been stuck at about $750 for weeks. Are the musings of a Catholic gay conservative really that popular? Or are Metafilter readers just cheap bastards?"
