    Cool COllection

    Hello!

    If I say that yesterday I organised a "money collection based on challenges", do you understand what I'm talking about?

    Thank you
    Will

    Thank you. I'll explain what it was about:

    Yesterday I asked some people to take some challenges up.

    And I asked (some?) other people to give money if the challenges were a success.

    What you do call that? (In French we say "Quête au défi).

    Thank you
    Will

    Is this to raise money for charity?

    Re: COllection

    Are you talking about "bar bets"? Like "Hey, I bet you $5 I can put 6 hard boiled eggs in my mouth."

    What kind of challenges are you talking about?

    "Sponsored tasks/challenges" is what you mean, I think. People take part in a challenge, run a half-marathon, for example, and other people sponsor them with money.

    Wouldn't a sponsor give money whether they were successful or not? There is a buzzword "charity challenge"... but I hate buzzwords.
