This was much like the the game. Betaar gave us a great start like Tamim or Imrul. Then we had the 9th wicked pair of Shujiburo and WarWolf that brought the victory home.

Thank you for the kind words. Yes, I have contributed, but I have to say that my role was that of a minor facilitator. Betaar did much of the grunt work. You (Zunaid) forwarded him the actual ad that was used. Sadi (WarWolf) went to PA office and actually made it happen. About providing the funds for paying PA, I had no doubt that the pledges would be fulfilled and there was no real risk there also.

Thank you everyone, especially who did the real work.

I think you should send a list of the contributions to Zunaid bhai in details. We have to be accountable.

Shuja bhai - can you update us as to the total amount collected so far.

One thing you might want to do is to list the names of all the people from whom you have received contributions (but not the amount) so that they can be double check their acknowledgment.

And do let us know the total amount you have collected so far, including your pledged amount, to see where we stand today. I have been contacted by some people to tell me they would be willing to add more if needed.

I am making this sticky until we are ready to close up.

I can't still believe the magic of our timing. I hope it helped.

The magic was in our belief and the mix-up PA created.

That's awesome Shuja bhai. I was thinking of the same thing but didn't want to speak too soon. Hope tigers make it to the semi after beating SA on the 19th which will then give us only 2 days to work on that. And now that I have a little bit of experience dealing with Bagladeshi newspaper, I am very much dobtfull whether that will be enuogh time. But if WI does beat Eng and we are through then we can start working on that right after 17th. So let's not give up hope.

I think BC ought to set up some marketing products or even products as a whole. For instance, why not sell BC T-shirts? The costs are low to have them printed and members can purchase the T-shirts which will fund BC initiatives and other logistical costs. Granted, BC is not looking for making money out of them and there are some copyright issues etc. But I am pretty sure with the talented bunch in this forum, we can come up with designs that does not infringe any existing commercial agreements but also will allow fans or members to buy a piece of Bangladesh Cricket. Also, since BCB does not have any outlet to sell their merchandise, I think BC can sell pseudo-jerseys or T-shirts, hats that is related to Bangladesh Cricket.

But to the real topic, how can I also contribute? Paypal or Google Checkout account?

Hello Dhakablues, great idea. Something to look into.

If you are still interested in contributing, please check your pm for shuziburo's paypal address.

I'll be a WI supporter. For one match. If WI wins, we can put an ad, to appear the day before QF starts. It can be the smaller size ad. How about:
"We Believed!
Go TIGERS! Go!"

Now that you know about the value of verbal promises, etc, you can guard against it. At least somewhat. They also know that we are real.

Keep em coming. The QF idea is on.
I doubted that we'd get the full amount, but, just like my belief on the BD team, I decided to also believe the fans of BD team here. i am glad they came through. I actually wrote to Shuja Bhai and Ramond about my dad's experience during his days with the Lions Club in BD. We sure could have used some of you guys during those fundraisers.

Okay. Please check your PM. I sent the contribution via Paypal. I accidently saw the ad the other day and was so surprised.. I wonder whether there has been any new member spike since the ad appeared..

While I am infusing ideas: Can BanglaCricket also have tiered patrons? like the NPR model? For a donation of $25, you get a T-shirt, for a generous gift of $50, you get a 'beautiful' china made mug, for a contribution of $75, you get a DVD of great screen savers, wall papers, for $100, you get autographed pictures of Bangladesh national players,,,,,
