    Thanks dude and to all who contribute. Just last month was browsing XS and came across what must have been one of his last posts (by the date). :(

    I would be willing to donate a 4850 (in brand new condition) that is simply gathering dust in my cupboard, if somebody else was willing to deal with the business of auctioning it off (i.e. give me an address and I'll post it to you). I suppose every little helps. Perhaps we could set up the facility of donating non-cash contributions via this site, maybe even on a permanent basis for other worthy causes (Goodwill Tech Auction)? Coming up to Christmas this form of contribution would be easier for me than paying cash, but in any event provide the account details and I'll see what I can do.

    Once I hear from Paulieg, and make sure the addy's right and he knows that funds are coming his way, we can start raising.. As for the auction, we'll need to talk with w1zzard on that sort of thing... see what we can do... or, how we can do it for teh matter..

    I have all of the donation info from the last time we sent a donation. It is a trust fund account. You guys can send donations to me via paypal to paulgow07@gmail.com. PLEASE make a note in the payment that it is for this purpose, and send an quick email to me at the same address, with you name and donation amount. I will be making my own little donation too. ;)

    Once all donations are collected, I will post a picture of the bank check being sent to Loony's daughter. Just so everyone can see what a little bit from everyone can really add up to. I'm thinking that 12/2 should be the cutoff date for donations, so I can get the money there before Christmas.

    Thanks to Cold for getting this going again. It's the perfect time of year to be thinking of others.

    Since we are going the money donation route, I am going to setup another thread in B\S\T for a computer part giveway.

    Let me know when you have the Paypal ready to go so I can send some funds.

    Last year we raised over $200. Let's do our best to raise more this go around. If I can sell some of the stuff in my FS thread (in sig) I will make another donation.

    I can't remember exactly, as I've reformatted a couple of times since we last donated, but I want to say it was around $300 or so.
