Given that this website is maintained by a large, anonymous group of like-minded NUFC fans it is understandable that some people would be suspicious of our intentions and the fact we launched 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 £560.22 starting point 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 Alan Pardew at and around Newcastle United matches. We will try to have as visible a presence as possible.
We are trying to add a more permanent and foolproof way of listing donations rather than using screenshots, perhaps in the vein of JustGiving, and will work with local businesses to get receipts while preserving our anonymity.
Nobody here will take a penny of any money raised.
As stated, anything left in the pot when our objective is achieved will be donated to various local charities and proof of that will be quickly forthcoming at the time too.
This post will also serve as a timeline of the projects undertaken by SackPardew.com and its supporters going forward.
