Given that this website is maintained by a large, anonymous group of like-minded Newcastle United fans it is understandable that some people would be suspicious of our intentions and the fact we launch with a “Donate” button.
We must first make it clear that there is absolutely no obligation to send money and that we will strive to be as self-sufficient as possible, with the initial investment in domain name acquisition, hosting, etc. as well as the campaign starting budget coming out of our own pockets to get things underway.
Furthermore, in the future this post will outline exactly where the funds come from and where they go, showing all Paypal donations along with any fees incurred, plus invoices for all of the work that is undertaken when we launch our individual campaigns.
Money will specifically be spent on promotional material directly related to the primary goal of this website, which could include (but not be limited to) banners, billboards, flags leaflets and/or other methods of applying public pressure to Mike Ashley at and around Newcastle United matches. We will try to have as visible a presence as possible.
Nobody here will take a penny of any money raised. Anything left in the pot when our objective is achieved will be donated to a local charity of our choice and proof of that will be quickly forthcoming at the time too, just as it was for the remainder of the SackPardew.com campaign fund that was donated to the North East volunteer group supporting the homeless Making Winter Warmer.
