Having received so-called "gift" tickets as a so-called "volunteer" for the org I can assure you that those gift tix aren't free by a long shot. Bull you say?

Lessee... minimum of 40 hours, plus I did a 24 hour on-call shift, and wsas there pre- and post-event. No drinking before or during the shift, plus being as if I was at my 51 week a year job (with the same or harder rules). No dope. No shenanigans. Follow ALL the rules. ALL the time. Bustin' my butt. Even figuring minimum wage at 7.25 (and my skillset gets a hell of a lot more than minimum on the outside), x 64 hours? I paid... at least $464.00 for that ticket. It's cheaper to buy a ticket. Really no shit cheaper. Plus I get to enjoy the event, and not watch a clock... or my manners.
So, while it may not be politically correct to espouse this, I got no problem with someone selling their $460+ dollar "Gift" ticket. When I was flush, I'd buy a ticket and gift the "Gift", but I got burned once doing that (long story, the giftee ended up pissing off a lot of people) so usually I use it or, if I don't. I save it as a souvineer. If someone is GENUINELY hard up and otherwise fucked... then I think about it.
But it's MY ticket. I EARNED the bastard. Dig? Not yours to tell me how holy I should be to live YOUR rules. I busted MY ass while you went out and played to get that gift that I could gift off. Or keep. Or, fuck, sell if I had to (tho I've yet to sell that ticket, and if I did I'd never tell anyone). I'd never get the $1400 that ticket cost ME. YOU do the work, then YOU say how that ticket gets done.

Sorry, I do get a little defensive about that issue. Just a wee bit, maybe??

We have a long list of people who have helped with our project and have easily put in what would be more than a ticket price worth of work that we do not have a ticket for. I am sure my projects are not the only ones that deal with this.
Does selling a gift ticket for an Honorarium project violate the agreement with the org? I thought it did.
