What Budget Would It Be Enough For Our Meet Up? A Proposal For Help From Steem Philanthropists
Over the week, it has been very though for members of @steem-ghana. We have been making a lot of decisions about funds, venue and appropriate timing for this August event of this nature. Since there are a lot of people who have promised to be present at this meet up. In fact the old and pioneers who have stayed away from Steem for very long time are showing interest to join.
Due to this, it has become necessary for us to "Budget" for this "Meet Up." Well, what budget would it be sufficient for this program? We would be happy to be in haste or rush mood to do anything how, since it's very long time we had a meet up. So we want this occasion to be a memorable one for the entire Steem Blockchain.
Our proposed budget & source of funds
So far, we have estimated for 1000ghc/$170 or something above 1000Steem. Looking at what are before us to cater for, this amount maybe less to our expectations, but we must cut our coat according to our cloth. The @steem-ghana is at the nurturing stage with no or little funds. In this case, the community look up for funds from individuals. Many of these Steemians are Newcomers and others too with little in their wallet.
Thanks to @oppongk who has promised to donate 500Steem through little power down of his account. We believe with little contribution from individual Steemians, we can reach that 1000ghc Budget.
A call for support from Steem Philanthropists
The Community therefore call for support for any interested of this meet up, to help fund it and made it successful one. This can be donation of liquid Steem through our account or through upvote support. You can get reach us via our WhatsApp link : https://chat.whatsapp.com/DnhYaNruvCVDdPOiM8SRlh
The date for Our Meet up.
The official date for our meet up would be announced shortly. But so far, 19th December 2020 is the scheduled date for the meet up if nothing changes. Yesterday, our WhatsApp page was very hot with the appropriate date feasible for our meet up. We early thought to push it close than this proposed date. But, upon second thought we need to plan things well for good organization. Besides it seemed to be too close to the December 7th poll. That's why we have chosen 19th December 2020. With this date, we would have about 3 weeks ahead to plan well.
Many thanks to our committee for planning of this meet up: @mcsamm, @njaywan, @nattybongo and @oppongk. Everything is occurring smoothly via our WhatsApp page. We are still on the compilation stage. This is done in combination of other decision to make this meet happen live. List of members who wish to be present are compiling. So far we gotten 10 on the role who would want to book their ticket to this August meet up. Below is the screenshot of our increasing list:
The Venue for the Meet Up
The place is Kumasi, but we are still deliberating on the venue. About three(3) places have come to our minds: Rattray, X5 and Kumasi Mall. We want the best out of best. So many features are considering here; the place with more funs, spacious to host large number of people, the place with much beautification, the place with low charging fees and many others. For Rattray, it is having large park but charge 10ghc/$1.7 per individual who enters. We haven't made inquiry at K'Mall and X5. Kumasi Mall too is very nice. So we are planning which of these three(3) venues will fit for this meet up.
Items plan for Spend On
We would like to make a lot of funs and host many strangers who would visit us. Though we have not draw our Agenda, but we would love to give out food & water for those come to the meet up. If possible pay for the cost of entry and other expenses that would incur at the place. The flyers to be distributed to be given out to friends, families and love ones.
We wish to put these proposals before our beloved Steemians here to support us to make this our meet up a memorable one. Our expectations are to get new sign up for Steen and also to bring back those who have quit Steem for very long time.
Note: Due to this Budget, we would like to set the post payout to 50%:50% reward, in order to get liquid Steem to support this meet up.
Thanks very much, Steemit Team!
