Secret Godless Garage Sale Planning Meeting

  • Jan 24, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Help the Arkansas Society of Freethinkers raise $4,000 (and have a blast doing it)!

The Arkansas Society of Freethinkers does a lot to protect our freedom, promote knowledge, and enrich our lives. However it is also your platform to make a difference - while having a great time and meeting new people as always! Here is your opportunity:

Everything we do costs money: web services charge fees, ads aren't cheap, Reason in the Rock alone costs thousands. How cool would it be if we could finance these activities by clearing out our closets / garages and selling the junk we don't need anyway?

In March/April, we launch the first annual Secret Godless Garage Sale to do just that. It will draw donations from across this organization and it will be massive. Our goal is to raise $4,000 to benefit the ASF. To pull this off, we are gathering a team of 6-12 people working together to gather donations, make signs, set up tables, staff the sale, and take down the sale. We already have several volunteers but there are still spots remaining. This is also an ideal opportunity for newer members to get to know more people. Attend this meeting if you are interested in making a difference while having a great time. BYOB!

Regarding donations:
Donation instructions will be sent closer to the event. For now, start boxing up the items you would like to donate!

Regarding other resources:
If you have tables, sawhorses, boards, poster board, med-large stencil letters, clothing racks, etc. they will be needed. Contact Chris B.

    I have quite a bit of old clothes to donate, plus a bicycle. I won't be able to make the meeting, though. When will we know an exact date? If I'm free, I'd love to help out!

      We hope to set a date plus a rain date at the meeting. You're not the only one who is ready to donate! Lots of people have expressed an interest, so hopefully the sale will be H U G E.

      4/5 - 4/6 (and maybe 4/7). Rain dates are 4/12 - 4/13.

    We had a great meeting. I'm forwarding notes to the attendees. Let me know if you'd like to be copied as well.

      I don't know I need the notes, but tell me when it will be. Thank you.

    Can't come tonight after all. I also don't have any tables or chairs or much stuff. But I have will and time! I'll catch the next planning meeting. Have fun guys!

    January 24, 2013

  • Susan K.

    I am sick and can't come tonight. We have a table too if needed. We also have items to donate.

    January 24, 2013

  • Judd M.

    I don't think I'll be able to make the meeting, but:
    1) I have stuff to donate (clothes, but also antique plates, art glass, etc).
    2) I may be able to let ya'll borrow my art tables, but I'd have to know the date before-hand. I use my tables to pimp my art at the River Market.
    3) This might not be the right place, but I do make art and would be willing to donate items.

    I won't be able to make this meeting but please put me down as a volunteer for "day of" I also am getting together donations. Ill inform the Hot Springs Freethinkers of the need for donations...

    January 14, 2013

    • Chris B.

      Thanks Deborah! What we really will need are folding tables, long boards and sawhorses, clothing hangers, etc to put all this stuff on. A dozen folding tables would qualify as "a good start". :) Then when Hot Springs pulls off a similar fundraiser, Little Rock can loan their tables!

      I'm thinking we will have a 2nd gathering to make signs.

      I have hangers out the ying-yang (not sure what that phrase means but beloved hubby says it a lot!)...cleaning out attic...

      January 17, 2013

  • Anne O.

    I've already started cleaning out closets and cabinets in anticipation of this event. I'd love to raise more than $4k. Heck, let's raise the roof off the sucka!

    1 · January 14, 2013

    • Chris B.

      At $4k, we throw a party. At $5k, we pop champagne and pretend it's New Year's. At $6k, we get stupid happy and do a heathen dance in the street until at least one person goes to jail. Then we use $1k for bail money and revert back to champagne.
