I think open study should do something for charity.I visited a hospital as a volunteer and realized how children were really sick and they needed the money to get treatment but they didn't have families I think we should do something PLEASE POST IF YOU HAVE ANY IDEAS (remember to keep it free)

    maybe if we split up into regions, it could work. i know a lot of people on here live in florida (since most go to flvs) and if we could all meet up, we could do something under openstudy's name. idk.

    but most people don't have the money to donate :c for people who are on food stamps and stuff, doing some kind of food drive could work i, for one, would love to do some volunteer work, but donating is out of the question for me :/ i could donate my time and energy, but not money

    Though we can make banners . We can spread this throughout the world, one/some of OS users/ambies/fans can showcase their work in charity on the name of OpenStudy . This can be used as an example of charity work.

    What we can do? Most of us are living miles away from each other. We can make videos , powerpoints and interactive lessons / funny videos that can be used in weekends in hospitals on the name of OpenStudy for entertaining the patients in hospitals. Students in hospitals can be shown a brief review about OpenStudy and also some interactive lessons can be taught to them through interactive softwares and devices. But I think this is just a thought, and it is very very hard for us to implement it. If all of us unite then something can happen . idk whether my idea is possible or not?

    how about we make a new subject called "charity" or something. and in there, each thread could be a project idea. and anyone who's interested can post in there with their ideas. and from there, they can set up their own meetings and make their ideas reality

    hmn, Nope! Charity will not work for longer time span. Health and education is a better one, discussing about health causes , consequences ... and relating health with education. This can also include charity.

    Wiki defines Health Science or Health care sciences very well : "Healthcare science, also known as medical science, is a set of applied sciences applying portions of natural science or formal science, or both, to develop knowledge, interventions, or technology of use in healthcare or public health."

    First of all Openstudy is a study site ..Most of our users are just young boys and girls coming here for learning purpose .Trying to run a charity movement inside the site might not work -I think. As I pointed out we have different online communities/sites to organize such activities http://www.justgiving.com/ .You can meet tonnes of people interested in charity there . You can also use social media like facebook,twitter to gather your friends .

    1. @mathslover this fits perfectly in the openstudy feedback section. This is regardig OpenStudy, not a question ONLY about health. I think it's fine here. Not all health are related to charity, BTW. 2. I love this idea. @AriPotta has some great suggestions. It could just be monetarily. OPENSTUDY DONATES 5% OF PROCEEDS FROM ADVERTISING TO CHARITY.

    First of all, dumb : mods do their duties well and so the admins. Mods report /suspend or punish if anything is done wrong by the user, they never play with their duties. @dumbsearch2 I didn't say that it is not suitable in OS feedback group. I was saying that instead of having a charity group we can include this all in the health sciences group.
