New project: FightersAid
In our first news about COVID-19 we talked about forwarding 50% of all donations to WHO COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. A few weeks later, the transaction is done. It was a great way to help quickly. Today we start something new: 50% of all donations from the middle of April until the middle of June will be donated for our new project: FightersAid.
FightersAid meant to help small fighting-related communities or individuals. These can apply to the form and ask for direct financial help. Like this forum post demonstrates, I feel they are a lot of smaller clubs who currently struggle hard because of the COVID-19 outbreak.
If you know any local fighting or training related club or a small local gym that needs help, you can forward them to us:
Disclaimer: For personal reasons, I won’t aid: Video production companies or escorts, please respect these decisions. Local clubs that also support the young generation of the next fighters are slightly preferred.
In case some money is left, it will go to the WHO COVID-19 fund again.
Please spread the word if you know someone who can use this aid.
Small site adjustments to follow up on FightersAid:
We allow any kind of advertising in our dedicated sub-forum. Same disclaimer, no video-production companies, and escorts. Sharing links is allowed, no spamming.
Other site improvements
New Chat function went online to handle our chat what got busier in the past weeks and raised the reports coming out of it. To counteract them, for a few days chat room owners are online now to help the self-regulation of our chat rooms.
And as always,
Stay healthy and try to stay fit!

The GROVE PARK WRESTLING RING won't require or be participating in this as we do not need any rescue financing. All running and maintenance costs come from guys using the place and I'd much rather we kept that independence.
So as soon as you pro and sub grapplers can get back into the ring post-lockdown the better as the place could do with a lick or two of paint!
I'm posting this because a number of guys have contacted me suggesting we apply and I just want folks to know that it is not necessary as we are fine. The only current problem the building has is the distinct lack of the usual sweaty and testosterone atmosphere but that can only be recharged by wrestlers wrestling.

An idea and a thread which, once again, demonstrate so strongly what a positive, supportive community this is. And well done, Mr Grovepark, for assuring us that you are OK so funds raised can go to places which will genuinely find any eventual donation a real life-saver.
A few days ago, a member of just 5 days' standing presumed to berate us all for being rude (i.e. not replying) ... age-ist. I disagreed, responding to him publicly and privately, but am now blocked. But yah boo sucks to you, Mr "just 5 days with us because" ...
... along comes this new scheme. YES, Admin works hard to make sure the site is the best it can possibly be for us, its members. And YES, I really believe that most people here, responding to the positive ethos of the site, are ...
Polite - Generous - Kind - Tolerant - Appreciative - Patient - Interesting - and lots of other good qualities!

To berate someone as a cause is raising money. Sort of defeats the good nature of things

Great idea guys!!

Any chance we could help Pippa LVinn. She is being forced out of her current place in Manchester. She is trying to set up a new place and lots of us have used it. Hope she keeps going
