    Regardless of how much anyone can give, it's all appreciated. It's truly the spirit of giving that really counts. One dollar is $100 to one person, and vice versa...You guys rock!

    Right, it's not the amount of money that we get for her. I'm sure it's going to be alot ;)... All that counts, and all I'm looking at, is for us to come together, and help her out. It's the lease we can do in the factor of how Loonym was to us. Godfather of Crunch! :rockout:

    See if they sell Greendot MoneyPak cards at retailers, gas stations, etc near you. You can use them for up to $250 in instant PayPal transfers, there is a small fee to buy them, but that could all be different up North. Quick Google search does say they are available in places though.

    We broke the $400 mark after receiving 2 more $100 donations over the last couple of days. This already surpasses what we collected for the first TPU donation. You guys are simply awesome. If for some reason we don't get to the $500 mark by 12/2, I will donate the extra cash to get us there.

    **One reminder: Please send payment as a gift, so that we can maximize what we give her. A couple of donations had paypal fees associated with them***

    Hey, any amount is good. It comes from the heart when you donate to a cause like this.. Not, for the factor of... having to...
