    Hey Sabbi, 💡

    I posted about this idea years ago to Kelly and the original gang, but I still think its a great idea..

    To have a Mumstown Badge which mums could pin onto a coat/ nappy bag pram or something..it would be a great way to promote the site and be a good talking point for strangers in a cafe or something…if they see the badge they know the person is on Mumstown….

    Money could go to charity of choice…

    Dunno how workable the idea is but its one I always think is a good one for some strange reason 😀 ❓

    I like it! Remember we did the christmas gift collection in Scotch Hall a few christmasses ago for the Womans Refuge? Money could go towards that, maybe?

    it’s a good idea but as far as I know MT can’t legally raise money for a charity as they are not register as a charity.
    But a pin for chat opening why not.

    And if they only charge for the pin without profit, they it will be up to the person who buys it to give a small fee to the charity of their choice.

    We are going to look into produce a line of Mumstown products that members can purchase directly on the site.
    In turn we will donate to charity – this is something that we would have to register for.

    I remember you talking about that idea HMM! Was and is a great idea… it was when we were all nervous meeting people for the first time and having to go up and say eh are you from Mumstown?!! It was a sign for us!

    Bit confused on the charity thing though, why do you need to register to raise money for charity? Surely anyone can raise money for a charity??

    You need to be very careful about collecting money for charities, there is supposed to be a person from the charity present with proof they are a registered charity.

    The pins are a great idea and if they were available to buy a donation from each one would be made to charity but Mumstown would need to check about the proper way to do this.

    I remember during operation transformation someone asked us to collect money for their charity during one of our weigh in’s but because they were not present, we could not do it.

    I think there are laws in place now so that only registered charities can collect money, otherwise anyone could say they are a charity and may not be telling the truth.

    Its the way the world has gone sadly, so many chancers were pretending they were working as volunteers and collecting for a charity when in fact, they were pocketing the money!!
