I was woundering if maybe we could all band togather and do some sort of charity art auction. This could be at furcon or anthrocon of 2004 and we can use the money to better the lives of the less fortunte furs. We could start an art scholarship. or we could give to the march of dimes ect.

Charity auctions generally go towards an established non-profit organization. HOWEVER, that being said, I could see the group setting up a NPO and accepting donations and such towards a schollarship fund or something similar. However it's going to take a lot of work to become established in the fandom to the point where a con will be willing to sponsor you.

Everyone feels pitty for the cats at Tiger Haven or the kids who need the wigs (Locks of Love) which are both being sponsored by MFM. Someone going to college is all nice and fine, but I don't know how many furs would drop cash into the bucket for it. Sad

Just a fact of human nature.

Perhaps an auction done in TV Dave's name?

Art donated by artists interested, and the proceeds going towards one of the charities already supported by MFM, such as tiger haven?
(Since it seems that MFM is becoming or already is the planetfurry gathering convention?)

Feel free to tell me that I'm full of it-
It was just an idea.

I would, however, be willing to contribute art towards such a special auction effort for MFM.

Sounds like an idea to me. I'd be glad to add on something special for TV Dave to the Tiger Haven Auction...

Its already being done;
Project AngelFish.

Which is under a snafu of paperwork and which state to incorporate...
It was originally Fishburne's idea, so he's in charge. Not to say that its a 1 man show... its a major undertaking.
