We are a legitimate charity located in Rocky River, Ohio with global reach. Our mission is to better humanity through promises made and kept. We do this through character education and chapters of volunteers. You can learn more about us at becauseisaidiwould.org.

Thank you for sharing your concern. It brought to our attention that we needed to provide additional information in our original forum post.

We hope you will take a look and share with other Comet enthusiasts.

I will leave this post for now but it would be better to get approval before posting items similar to this when you are a new user, I went and checked your organization so I don't think you are con but this is not the best practice to get donations.

I hope everyone understands the point I am making and if the community feels strongly enough I will take further action.

See Ya,
Mike

Hey Mike,

We apologize if we offended anyone with our post and did not consider that there may be an approval process for what we assumed was a public forum. We were simply looking to raise awareness and thought our fundraiser may be of interest to the participants here because of the nature of the prize. We appreciate your willingness to give our effort a chance for others to weigh in.

We are fairly inexperienced at fundraising as most of our operating revenue comes from in person events that have been eliminated due to the current pandemic. We are doing everything we can think of to keep ourselves going until we are able to resume our normal funding activities and continue our charitable work. Please forgive our lack of understanding for the club forum's protocols/etiquette.

Thanks.

The Promise Team at becauseisaidiwould.org

We are sorry you feel that way but appreciate your sense of humor. If you change your mind, you can always fall back on our code of honor "doing what is right will always be more important than keeping a promise." We believe in our work and hope we can convince others to join us in the fight against this terrible disease. Stay safe & be well.
