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.
@AriPotta how bout some kind of meeting online with people who are interested?
ooh yea! like skype with each other?
yes exactly but some people don't like showing their faces with people who they don't know so maybe chat
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
Better Idea - Study well , get good job !! You can donate as much money as you want :)
yes but I just wanted to keep it free but there r many things you could do for charity without money @AriPotta now we just got to get people intrested
@Preetha can you arrange some kinda openstudy meeting with everybody who wants to do this??
i think she should post one of those banner notification thingies about this. you know, like how she did with those polls??
hmm that's a really good idea but we have to get her to do it :)
Sorry, I am not in the favour of OS meeting.
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.
@mathslover thays what we want to do
but we wanna be able to work together
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?
You kno its possible we just need more people
Pooja, have you seen *Munnna bhai MBBS * movie ?
It is just similar to what we want to do! ...
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.
hmm well u both have a point but we have to get someone like a mod to creae the group
We have health science group at present.
but charity and health aren't really related
charity would be specifically for these projects
Yes Ari, you're right. But how long the charity group live? I don't think that it will stay active for more time. We can adjust our requirements now.
Making projects is somehow related to designing ? Agreed @AriPotta ?
@AriPotta I think we should name it chairty
it makes sense
the amount of time it will stay alive varies directly with the amount of people willing to participate, how long projects will take to complete, and the flow of new ideas.
if we can get preetha to periodically make those banner things, more people would see it and get interested
We can make a single thread for charity projects, why a complete group? We just need a place to put the thread on. We can put it in health sceinces group, designing ?
if we have multiple projects going at the same time, then it would make sense to have a whole group for it. if we had just one thread, it could get really long and messy and laggy
@Mertsj you think we can try this idea out
But for multiple projects , there should be at least 10 interested users in this work. Guys, how is charity related to studying?
IT IS because its part of health and education
does it have to be? well, researching is a must to truly understand the issues at hand and to also know how to effectively help. and researching is a part of studying.
Isnt' it 80-90% related to Health science @pooja195 ?
@mathslover do you support this idea??
i am in support for making charity projects [but not completely] . Though I am not in support for making a charity project.
Oops meant : charity group [in last sentence]
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 .
openstudy has hundreds of users and it would be a shame if we didn't use our numbers for the betterment of our communities.
I agree with ari 100%
Yeah Aravind but when it came "on the name of OpenStudy" , I liked this idea. As OS will get blessings , wishes and support from all with some social work.
And if any of you are social Darwinism crappers GTHO. .-.
Gys I just wanted to try something different but WE nee the support of a mod
*admin. Mods can just suspend and kick+warn ;p
we need the support of preetha to make this actually work.
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.
well guys we have to get preethas atttention
why the heck was this darn thing closed ? .-.
I was wondering the same
Mods explore the open category more then the closed, I would imagine...
well people seem not to like this idea
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.
GUYS please keep on the topic
@mathslover I know that. I wasn't criticizing their duties, they're needed. (in fact, we need even more). I'm just saying that admins could do more things like editing the site, implrtant desicions
Ok! then its ok :)
too many comments here
@saifoo.khan your pic stolen! :)
why not a penny harvest?
good ide rember free
