Hello I would like to know if the place to donate to the invisible children is the same place from december 2011 when we gave a donation. I know to go to thewaysideinn but it seems to be stagnant. Is this correct or do I go to KONY 2012

Hello!  It is the same place, which you can find here.  The person in charge has also recently updated the donation information to reflect the giveaway currently underway, in which donors can win a copy of the Sigh No More Deluxe Edition signed by Marcus Mumford himself (which I personally asked him for and watched him sign, so it’s legit!).

To donate: www.crowdrise.com/thewaysideinn (Invisible Children) or www.crowdrise.com/thewaysideinnai (Amnesty International) or donating directly through those charities’ websites and forwarding the receipt to thewaysideinngroup@gmail.com.  You can either contact me or The Wayside Inn blog if you have any other questions!

Thank you for being interested in donating to these charities that Mumford & Sons themselves support.

The Wayside Inn’s New Giveaway: An Autographed Copy of “Sigh No More!”

thewaysideinn:

Well, I’ve been on something of a self-imposed hiatus over the last week/month/a while now, but Jennifer from Mumford and Sons Blog with the help of a few other tumblr compatriots (thank you so much to jburneya and meetva2000) did something pretty awesome while at the Ryman Auditorium just a few days ago aside from seeing M & S rock out.  Something that I think warrants a little effort on my part.

She had Mr. Marcus Mumford of the ever-so wonderful Mumford & Sons sign a copy of Sigh No More Deluxe as pictured here.  She explained to him that this would be given to someone who is donating to the causes they support via The Wayside Inn, specifically Amnesty International and Invisible Children.  That Marcus is aware of our little project…well, you can imagine I was pretty…gobsmacked is a polite way of putting it.

How to Win This Autographed Copy of Sigh No More:

First, reblog! Then, donate.  To be good to our word, only donors are up for winning this but if you donate once and reblog multiple times, you increase your chances. 

Option A: Donate to Invisible Children via The Wayside Inn
The band has performed for IC, their music has been used in IC videos, most recently in the phenomenon that is the Kony 2012 viral film. 

Option B:  Donate to Amnesty International via The Wayside Inn
The band most recently took part in the Secret Policeman’s Ball to raise money for Amnesty International, an organization that works on human rights around the world.

(If crowdrise for whatever reason isn’t your thing, directly donating to these organizations and sending thewaysideinngroup@gmail.com your receipt will count.)

Whenever the combined total of the two fundraisers reaches $1000, we will select randomly a winner from the reblogs, selecting until we verify the winner is also a donor.  As always, we recommend learning about what both IC and AI do and how your donation will help further the cause of human rights. 

I’m happy to answer any questions you may have! Send them to my ask! Please put this on your twitter, fb, etc.  Thanks again to Jennifer and all who have been such fantastic supporters and extra thanks to Marcus! Let’s see what we can do!
