    Just been thinking of it tonight and wondering how I could make a different to the world, then I was thinking what about hosting a charity DJ night at a local bar? I reckon it will be quite easy, I already looked into how I register to it etc to make sure the money goes to charity.

    I want to help raise the Manchester million and this seems like a good way to do it, its just a shame I don't have much time at the moment, I always get these silly ideas in my head though.

    My heads just full of ideas at the moment though, I am trying desperatly to become some kind of local social entreprenuer and business entreprenuer just so I don't have get a job. I'm still a little kid, but then Tony Wilson had this attitude and he ended up owning a record company and night club. The only problem is I would be competing against 2000 other local Tony Wilson's in the area.

    Is doing stuff for charity for personal benefit wrong though?

    Yes and no. Depends on whether you really care about who and what you are doing it for.

    Where?

    The charity group I work for is organising several gigs in Northants. They are good fun to do (often) and also can make lots of money.

    Bummer this is often a problem we face. Also not every ticket sold means someone is coming but at least you get the money.

    With you on that one all the way. The one we are having the end of this week we have gone for a 3/4 split on the tickets and kept 1/4 for sale on the door (not my decision I would have sold as many as possible!). :confused:

    To whichever ****tard neg repped me for that, it was serious comment, so unless you find someone actually going over there for 3/4 months to help out "tasteless", get ****ed you ****ing moronic ****.
