RE: Memorial for Diesel
This looks great and can't wait to see it. At least the school has one positive thing going for it.

Thanks - and since fundraising is ongoing, please tell others about the project! Many fans working together can get the project done. :-)

Does Fatty's know about this? Would they chip in? Or any additional local businesses? I see a couple have donated. I've chipped in about as much as I can but we seem to be many thousands short still so we need to somehow find more willing donors.

Yes, We have given an information packet to Fatty's and hope to receive a donation from them. We'll see.
If you have an other business suggestions or fund raising ideas please post on here. Fresh ideas are welcome.

We are a legal corporate not for profit registered with the state & Federal gov. We have our corporate bank account at the First National Bank of DeKalb. Our legal advisor, Rick Radek, tells me that anyone can go to the bank & give a donation. Just tell them it is for the Diesel Memorial Project. Our legal advisor is pro bono. ALL of us are donating our time & efforts so all money raised goes to the project.

Something else we would like people to know is that this is called the Diesel Memorial for fundraising purposes but in reality it is to be a memorial to ALL Huskie live mascots . There will be a plaque listing names & years of service. When Mission retires, his name will also be on the plaque.

Huge thanks to all who have donated. We still need donations so please tell your NIU friends. Thanks everyone!

Have you tried to engage the GREEK community, perhaps have a contest to see which fraternity or sorority can raise the most money for the project with some nice prize for the winner? Perhaps Huskie Athletics would fund the prize?

You might be way ahead of me on this and probably are.

So sad how much effort this is taking to get the money. This is why our alumni base is really behind and not good. We need to change the culture of our alumni. Who knows how though.
