Discussion in 'Charities and Welfare' started by Baghdad-Brit, Jun 17, 2005.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Fellow ARRSERs,

    We have a chance to get SSAFA a slice of some serious cash with no outlay ourselves. This email came round our HQ and is worth passing on:

    Whilst surfing the net at home on I noticed that they are giving £40000 to charity. They have selected 14 charities which will have a share in proportion to the number of votes cast. Please have a look at this non-profit making site and cast a vote for SSAFA. If you scroll to the bottom of the opening page you will find the list of charities and how to vote.

    We need a couple of hundred of us to vote and we will leap up the rankings.

    Get on it and show the world the awesome power of ARRSE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D
  2. PS - We cannot get beaten by "Send a Cow" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Results so far

    Poll Title: Choose a charity. Please vote for which charity you would like this site's fund (£40k last year) to support.

  8. Can we get a moderator to keep this up front and centre?
  9. More need to do this, a poxy 2.9% of votes? Jeez with this level of support no wonder the forces are going to the dogs.

    No registration or other - just hit the tit chasps.

  13. This should be a piece of pi55 really. We only need 225 people to vote and SSAFA is top five material.

    Remember how quickly ARRSE got the word out about that cheap kit being sold for charity.
  14. When I voted there were 90 votes. Other people have voted and it still says 90. Am I missing something?
  15. Done. Only takes a moment.
