I think it is really needed. I would be very happy to donate to support
various things but that will have to go through my company, which will also
require a legal entity to donate to.

If we want to go this way, I can ask a lawyer to draft the articles of
association. There will be some specific criteria to be filled in, in
particular if there is a will to organize larger events in the future.

I suggest people interested in investing some time in the ASBL/VZW contact
me directly. We will organise a meeting shortly and discuss the various
details. How does that sound?
