Default RAISE MONEY FOR PARADE!!! please?

After reading this article

I have taken it upon myself to raise money for the parade. Yes, me.

I found a company online that helps raise money for individuals, groups, communities and the like.

The best part about this company, is that if we don't meet our goal of $45,000 by the deadline of Feb 2nd 11:59 PM, all of the pledges canceled. In other words, pledges do not get turned into donations unless A) Steelers Lose B)We don't raise the $45,000 Of course we would want more.

If you are interested in placing a pledge (the minimum is $10, so find a friend to go in on it if $10 is too much. $10 is the lowest minimum that I could set.)

After posting this thread, I am going to email all of the news stations and alert them to this goal.

We can do it Steeler Nation!

Has nothing to do with money:

Quote:
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) ― There's a big possibility that if the Steelers win on Sunday, there will not be a victory parade.

An estimated 250,000 people jammed the streets of downtown Pittsburgh in February of 2006 for their Super Bowl parade.

There were far more people than anyone expected and the crowd was hard to control.

If there's another Super Bowl win, city officials are seriously considering eliminating the parade and perhaps holding a rally or something else that's more secure.

"The last parade that we had did create some public safety problems," Pittsburgh Public Safety Director Michael Huss said. "It was a narrow corridor. We had a crowd that was a lot larger than what we anticipated."

No final decision has been made and officials are reluctant to talk about it. But a parade like the one in 2006 appears unlikely if the Steelers win.

Public safety officials also want to avoid the post-game pandemonium that occurred in 2006 as well when fans flipped four cars and started small fires. Thirty-four people were arrested.

"We want everyone to enjoy the game and hopefully enjoy the victory, but at the same time, we don't want to see any damage done to our neighborhoods," Huss added.

Forbes Avenue and Carson Street will be shutdown Sunday evening.
