    As we know. A great member of both XS, and TPU (due to XS being down), passed a way some time ago. Leaving something very dear to his heart with out a father. His little daughter.. A few of us last year came together to make sure that we could help him and her the best way possible.

    Now, with the first holiday coming where it's just the lil miss, I want to see if we can do something more for her.. To me, I feel it'll probably be a yearly thing, but we'll see..

    Paulieg has said that he still has all the info.

    I'm asking for us to come together and help out a person that was very dear to our lives.. I know I may not be a person that "crunches and folds", but I'll do anything for the members that do..

    Thank you for your time, and lets get to raising!



    Deadline: December 2nd

    How to Contribute:



    [FST] going to help raise money

    [FS][US] Watercooling & parts, parts, and more par...

    [FS][US] Videogame Clearout (PSP, PS2, PS3, DS, X360, PC)

    Loonym will be missed by many that is for sure. This is a very noble idea and would I would like to help as well. You guys should contact Movieman at XS and get them involved or is this something that is TPU exclusive?

    Nah, I was on the verge of sending the pm to Movieman on it.. Just a slow night getting things done.. lol


    I would love for this to be a full fledge WCG type thing.. doesn't have to be TPU, or XS.. As WCG, we're all a family.. Even if we Crunch (for other forums) or not even at all..

    That is what I like to see and love to hear! Feeling the love in this thread.

    See this Dave? Don't tell me your not a little choked up over this! I think this would make Loonym's daughter very proud.

    If we could get something going, we may try and put a donated rig together for him... in his name.. gotta find first someone that can crunch for him, and go with it.. I'm down for it, and if anything, I can add something via next pay check as well..

    I just sent him a pm. I made sure my email's would go to a addy I check.. I tend to make new address for every forum I'm at.. don't want to be blogged by all on one! lol..

    I have the following parts to donate:

    Abit AN-M2 Motherboard with I/O Plate, Manual and IDE Cable
    Sempron AM2 single core (2 Ghz I believe)
    1GB Corsair XMS2 DDR2667 Ram (2 x 512)
    eVGA 8500GT 512MB

    Either we can see if somebody can donate the balance to make a complete system. Or maybe some kind of charity auction to raise money:eek: I will cover shipping costs in the Cont USA.

    I never knew loonym personally as I joined TPU after all this. But his story and his kid were one of the many reasons I decided to join here and the WCG team. I really can't think of a better way to show my gratitude to a great (inspiring) person and possibly make someone's christmas a whole lot better.

    I'm on board for this, so I'm subbed for whenever you give the heads up.

    I believe PaulieG said that he will be using the same addy from the last time so I'll just send him my contribution.

    Like I've said before, I'll gladly donate again.

    Once there is a specific PayPal addy to send the money to, let us all know.
