Netting Fundraiser

http://www.aquariumadvice.com/viewto...901&highlight=

In this post Hara tells us about a program that is trying to buy fish nets for the fish collectors to try and eradicate cyanide caught fish. AquariumAdvice.com is 100% behind this program!! To show our support, we are asking you to show your support From 5/27/03 until 6/2/03 any donations made to AquariumAdvice.com will then be donated to the cause. Anyone donating during this period will have their account upgraded to Aquarium Advice Alumni status, which includes more gallery space, as well as more upload space and an email forward yournickname@aquariumadvice.com . This is a cause that will increase quality of fish you can get, as well as saving our coral reefs. So open up your wallets and show some real support for the hobby, you will be preserving the hobby for yourself and your children.

To show everyone how serious I am about this project at the end of the week when all the aquarium advice donations are tallied Im gonna toss $20 of my own funds toward the fundraser.

There have been numberious debates on this site about net caught fish, tank rased fish and cyanide caught fish. In many of those debates many of you have voice your opinion that cyanide use is not only wrong but its unethical. This is one of the easiet ways us hobbiests can acutally begin to make a difference.

Sure economic pressure from educated hobbists not buying from stores that knowingly purchase cyanide caught fish will SLOWLY begin to lower the use this is going to have a direct effect and thus make end result arrive faster.

Thru out the week we will update this thread daily to provide an upto date tally of the current weeks dontations.

Remember every penny that we recive in donations for the period of 5/27/03 until 6/2/03 will go directly to this cause.

Great Idea Guys!!!

When you gather all of your donations and submit them, tell me the total and I'll put an Aquarium Advice banner on the web page that is being created to track the project.

This is a good cause, if you've got a few dollars to spend, spend it on this, to reiterate all donations made to the site this week will go to the net fund and your account will still be upgraded to Alumni status.
