    Two new Not for Profits will be creeping in.

    One will involve a group of educators in Indiana reaching out to educators in Ecuador.

    The second will involve my family in a relationship with the weavers and workers in Montecristi.

    Throw some names out, o creative ones.

    Thanks,
    Robert

    Take a look at http://www.dnwiz.com/. It can come up with some pretty good suggestions. Regardless, it's a nice place to start looking.

    Good day and God Bless.

    Edited to add: Somehow I got it into my head that you were looking for domain names rather than "real" names. Sorry about that.

    For the first I'm not sure, for the second:

    "Weaving Hope:

    A non profit organization dedicated to keeping the art of Montecristi alive"

    Or some such thing.

    Sincerely,
    Rob
     
  5. ok, you made me think of this all day. :p
    I was trying to get a decent acronym for the two of them.
    Perhaps I am stretching:
    ---Teachers for the Equadorian Children Helpcenter.----TEACH
    ---Weavers and Workers for Education, Advancement and Vocation of Equador----WEAVE
    Yeah yeah I know keep my day job. ;)

    Regards to all,

    Thanks, guys. I have until February 8th, so I still have time.

    At school"

    Teach1Reach1 is popular. We haven't done a search on it yet.

    On the Second one:

    I do like Weaving Hope.



    For the family NFP we do need some board members? Any willing hatters, or hat lovers? We're just in infancy, but all input is welcomed.

    I think that:

    Working Ethically As Vultures Exploit (WEAVE) would be too mean spirited.

    I know sometimes it probably seems as if I'm spouting Sour Grapes. When the first one of you goes down with me to Ecuador, I'm positive you'll understand what I mean and that I am not pouting.

    Not good names at all for folks here in Indiana. I'd like to have a Spanish/English thing going, but who knows.

    I'm kidding, you know. :cool:

    I'm partial to The James Powers Foundation, The Sharpetoys Symposium, or the Andykev Alliance.
     

  17. Hahahahhahaha! I wish I had the money to give to such things. The James Powers Foundation sounds like something set up to rate automobiles. ;)

    Regards to all,

    Every hat we sell from that day forward will have a specific portion given back. Not just the finest hats. Not just the most expensive hats. Right now I have no set % given back, save the regular salaried people and when I get (overly) generous. The scope needs to broaden out and stop coming from the pocket.
