      January's Special Feature: Taco Island Charities



      Taco Islands Charities has been a very prominent part of the Regional Reserve until very recently, when its activities went beyond the RR's parlance. So Regional Reserve Chairwoman United Royal Islands provided TIC with their very own board! This, coupled with the fact that TIC's increase in activity in the last and this month has been rather impressive. As of now, TIC have four active activities, more than 10 completed ones, including the famed Paffnia Prize and Mortimer Disaster Relief Funds and over 35 contributors! Very recently, TIC released its largest program yet, the nation's longevity program, where the nation is entitled to a certain number of Tacos for every month they are active on XKI, for the period of a year.

      This report covers some basic aspects of the Charities and something about the person behind it all: Paffnia, current Minister of Labor and long-time Islander.

      Kozmix: We all know what charities are used for traditionally (in RL I mean). What was the inspiration behind TIC?
      Paffnia: TIC was actually founded over a decade ago, before I got to XKI. After going through periods of activity and inactivity, TIC was dormant by late 2014, when I took it on. The mission for TIC that I try to live up to was laid out by former TIC Chair Twobagger, who said that TIC aimed at a combination of three major goals: encouragin new islanders to stay, encouraging old members to contribute to the Islands and build the reputation of TIC as an organization devoted to helping the region, so that it may more effectively reach out to the other nations in the region. In general, TIC strives to be a force for nation retention, for increased activity, for donor recognition, and for overall good fun in the Islands.
      Unlike how a real charity works, no one in XKI is hurt by lack of Tacos or in true need. However, the inspiration for me for TIC is to keep the Island active and fun, and to give new members a reason to stay active.

      Kozmix: How successful, would you say, TIC has been, in its attempts to achieve its objectives?
      Paffnia: would say very successful at spurring activity and rewarding creativity. The Paffnia Prize, the (soon to be opened again) annual Hahiha Nation Creation Contest, etc. all have tremendous responses. Encouraging new Islanders to stay around is a work in progress, though I am proud of the New Nation Longevity Rewards launch.

      Kozmix: What do you have planned for TIC in the coming future?
      Paffnia: Well, the Hahiha Nation Creation should open soon. After that, the Time Capsule will be opened, and a new one likely started.

      Kozmix: Where do you see TIC going in future? Do you have any plans as to it's activities or mission in future?
      Paffnia: Keep growing its reserves through the new TIC endowment, more activities to engage and retain new nations, and the same spirit of fun and generosity.

      Kozmix: Thank you so very much. TIC is a wonderful part of the Islands and I wish you all the best in all the future ideas and endeavors.
