Okay folks, thanks again for supporting this endeavor in so many ways—donation of art, bids upon bids, behind the scenes cash donations to Dave, positive vibes and comments, and even private eBay auctions with all funds going to Dave. Very cool and as Rick said somewhere in this thread it really speaks to a sense of community. Our little subculture came out en masse for one of our own…nicely done.
Here’s what is going to happen from here:
I will notify winners where to send their dough (i.e., my PayPal address). As funds are received I will notify donors that they can ship and ask that they confirm shipment and provide the tracking #. When items are received by winning bidders I will appreciate an email (which you will have from winning) letting me know you’ve received the print and I will then begin sweeping monies into Dave’s account. And goodness will occur.
In terms of the thread, we have asked the mods to close it tomorrow afternoon. We will start a new Dave Hunter Fund Raiser Shipping & Payments Info thread, in which you can feel free to post comments on your received posters and in which I will post how much has been collected against the total committed. Rick, Dave and I agreed that the donor who will have shipping offset is Corey since he could be shipping a frame, which could be rather costly. Other than that, Dave will be receiving a nice payment against his existing debt and coming expenses.
Most importantly folks, this is about Jasmine and Dave. Send your prayers, positive thoughts or however you connect with the universal brotherhood to the two of them for a positive outcome to this ordeal. As a father (especially a father of a “little” girl, who will turn 30 in a month; Rick has 2 of his own) I cannot imagine dealing with something like this so it was fun to participate in helping in the only way Rick and I could imagine.
To my partner Rick, I say thank you, thank YOU, THANK YOU—he is the man…
Back to the boards beaners…
Peace, Love and Happiness!
Fro & Rick
