I think we're so thrifty partially due to the nature of third-wave D.I.Y.ness/the general making-ends-meet nature of the movement/the fact that only until this year (maybe last year as well), we subsided solely on $40 per member annually.
So. I'd like some super creative and activist ways to spend this money usefully. We have a bunch of restrictions on how we spend it, like we can't just give it to a charity or buy a bunch of supplies for a charity and hand it to them. We're at Tulane, a fairly big university and as this will probably be my only opportunity to see $5K go towards progressive change, especially in post-Katrina New Orleans, I'd really like to make every buck count.
Thanks very much. :)
