“We have updated our terms and conditions. By clicking this link you agree to our full terms and conditions.” Have you ever seen something like that? When you open up the actual terms you try to see what they’re saying, but there’s soooooo much fine print that it’s impossible to understand. Or, if you actually do read through it, it takes hours to get through it all.
We’ve been thinking about this lately. Since we’re officially a 501c3 certified non-profit, we have to complete annual government paperwork AND have connection to legal advisors, which basically means we need to come up with our own “fine print” in order to be considered a sound non-profit.
To save you the headache, we won’t make you click on a link to read them, but here they are…____ ().
Thankfully, as mentioned in the majority of our blog post, we always use the phrase – “100% Open and Honest.” We’re always keeping it completely open and making sure there aren’t any detailed and/or long-term commitments. For example, if a group makes cards one time, there’s no requirements for them to ever participate again. Although our number one goal is to get groups to continually make cards, there aren’t any contracts or binding fine print.
There ARE a bunch of added benefits to participating though. Like how making 1,000-plus cards moves you to the top level on our site (www.cardzforkidz.org/participants), or donating a total of $3,500 gets your logo put on one of our special donations to a hospital. There’s also GOKarts! Finally, Top 3 artists are invited to hand-deliver their cards to the kids - #cardzWITHkidz. But all of those are added benefits and not TERMS AND CONDITIONS. Let’s continue to work together to make Cardz for Kidz! Light-hearted and fun.
