Thanks all for understanding.
Remember, this doesn't stop any one of you from doing this at any time, just please understand the reality of the internet and how it can't be done through the TDPRI.
PS. Here is the exact wording from the rules of the TDPRI:
FUND RAISING/CHARITIES OR OTHER PERSONAL USES:
You cannot use the TDPRI to request donations for any personal charity. This includes posting links to sites requesting charitable donations. This includes asking people to donate money or purchase items you are selling here or elsewhere to fund needs of any kind for family, friends, neighbors, pets, other TDPRI members or anyone.
