Suggests they make separate landing page which donations can go to, and consense at a meeting when they want to spend money - RESOLUTION: gavin, miloh, and kelly will discuss and have a more concrete proposal next week.

proposes to take sewing machines to apparel city, buy spare parts, and fix/repair them all. estimates the cost of missing parts will not exceed $60 , cost of fixing timings on two machines with broken machines is $70 each. (less than $250) - should mail sewing list and see if anybody could help fix / start a collection (traditionally NB doesn't spend money to fix things) - RESOLUTION: will go to mailing list, will not consense next week.
Nothing was discussed.
