Good afternoon, Talossans!

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is pleased to announce the commencement of a charitable campaign to support Milwaukee Habitat of Humanity! (https://milwaukeehabitat.org/)

I may not live in Milwaukee, but I do live in Wisconsin, and I can assure you, it gets plenty cold here, especially this time of year. As of writing, it's barely above freezing, and this is an unseasonably warm day. January and February will not be any kinder to those who are lacking suitable shelter. This is our chance to give to a community that our shared nation has its roots in, a place that, whether or not you may realize it, has helped shape the Talossa that exists today.

Donations can be submitted via PayPal to the Royal Bank and Post (treasury@talossa.com). When submitting, please include a note clarifying that this is a donation for BHAID, so as to make our good Burgermeister's workload easier.

This campaign will continue until (and including) Sunday, January 8, 2023. I would be absolutely thrilled if we could collect at least $100, but I also know that we as a community can do much better than that. (For my own part, I'm starting with a $15 donation, so feel free to one-up me! This is one of those times it feels nothing but wonderful to be outdone.)

Minister Autofil, will the Government be taking action to contribute directly to the fundraising similar to the PD for a donation concerning the Russo-Ukrainian War? Or is the BHAID itself only acting as an organizer of individual charitable donations?

I had thought once the recipient was selected that the BHAID, as an agent of the Government, would be making a direct contribution rather than raising money from individual citizens.

This was the Ukraine PD from February 2022:

Quote from: Þon Txoteu É. Davinescu, O.SPM on February 27, 2022, 08:14:28 PMWHEREAS there is an ongoing humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, and

WHEREAS many Talossans are
expressing a desire to assist in some way, and

WHEREAS The Government believes the financial position of the Kingdom allows us to make a contribution

THEREFORE I authorize the Burgermeister of Inland Revenue to disburse $100 to the Ukraine Crisis Fund of the International Red Cross.

Respectfully,
Gen. Txoteu Davinescu, O.SPM
Seneschal of Talossa

At the moment, the answer to your question would be the latter, as I do not see anything in the budget as passed for charitable donations. Should the Seneschal wish to issue a PD in support of this campaign, I think we would all consider it a blessing, but I must defer to his authority on that front for now.

@Ian Plätschisch Seneschal, will the Government be providing any financial support to the BHAID directly as a part of this drive?

Understood. Because this is a new consideration it may take the Government time now to discuss and decide. I'll check back a bit later.
