PostSubject: Fundraiser for Zack   Thu Sep 20, 2012 12:34 am

I finally broke down and did this, asking for help for us was HELL, putting this together took all day, practically. I feel kind of embarrassed, but whatever. *sigh* My independent streak has limits, though. As does Zack's.

So, here's the GiveForward page I put together. I omitted the situation with my father and other family members--one thing at a time. Dad's doing okay so far, Zack's grammie with her broken hip is doing okay in the Alzheimer's home, and my four-legged family member's vet trip and recovery is hopefully a thing of the past. Like I told a buddy of mine, I want bumper stickers and shirts that say "I'm Tougher Than 2012." What a year. Criminey.

...in case anyone isn't up to speed, or this seems out of the blue, here's the threads as things progressed:

http://www.brothersofbriar.com/t18390-family?highlight=Family

http://www.brothersofbriar.com/t18498-family-part-ii?highlight=Family

Anyway, here it is... pass it on if you think anyone might be able to help if those reading cannot (and believe me, I understand...it's been a rough year for a LOT of people)...

Thanks, Brothers. Wish us luck. Cool

(PayPal donations will be enabled soon, by the way...some difficulty getting that arranged...)

I should have replied to this topic when I replied to your fundraisers site enquiry topic, meh, it said this:

It should be pretty easy, it's my first jump into such things, but the site has been a breeze to put together so far, the support staff is very personal and responsive. We'll see how it goes in a few months! Smile It's encouraging.

Cool

How long will this be up and operational brother? I have been forced to save to go get my daughter as of late, but would like to help once I can again.

December 19th is the "end date..." It's a day before Zack's mom's birthday, and I figure that would be a good way to end the year, make the Holidays seem a little less bleak and have something to celebrate so we're not selling everything under the sun to pay for medical bills. *shrug* You have plenty of time, Kaiser--and thank you. Cool

I want to see this keep getting bumped, I unfortunately cannot help at the moment but look forward to helping sooner than later as my job prospects shake out.

Wishing you strength and good health.

An idea crossed my path as a PM suggestion that seems like a good one, but I have no idea how to even begin doing such a thing. Something about a pipe raffle...someone donates a pipe or two, collects funds, someone gets an awesome pipe, and the donated money could help. I'm pretty sure it'd be an undertaking much like bombing or something of that nature, so I'm just throwing that out there. I at least have a few pipes I smoke less as they aren't my style, but they're...erm... not exactly "desirable..." Laughing

I don't know. *shrug*

Cool

That's a great idea, Kyle!

Come to think of it, Blackhorse was just bombed with a pipe that he's done nothing but gripe and complain about. Maybe he could put it up for Raffle.


lol!



Let's also remember Cartaphilus, he's got a pipe that he would probably donate if he hasn't shipped it back already. Laughing

Laughing Good points.


Anyway, it was just a zygote of an idea. Meh. *shrug* There's enough stuff happening around here. Let's see how my other fundraising ventures turn out.

FWIW the cigar site I moderate has an auction sub-forum dedicated to just this.

The seller posts an offer of X with and end date/time.

The highest bidder wins, and the seller sends the goods and payment is rendered to the recipient.

Works pretty good IMO.


Cheers,

RR

I should be bumpin' it myself, but... eek. Busy week caretaking while Zack's folks are out on vacation. Taking care of their whole house (lots of watering, cleaning, etc). Then I stuck my chin out and wanted to solve the mystery bomber situation? *sigh*

Laughing

Thanks you guys. Cool
