I see that we are now at 93% with 12 days left. This is fantastic and it appears that we'll reach the $1500 goal that was set.

 

However, I think that we can do better! So, I'm going to challenge all of the member here. I will match 10%, up to a maximum of $50, of anything that is collected over the $1500 goal. So, if we collect another $500 over the $1500, I'll add another $50 to the pot.

 

Are you guys/gals up to it?

 

Add my name to the challenge as well - I will match 10%, up to a maximum of $50 on any amount over the $1500 goal.

Come on TPW members. I see that we only have another $150 to go to get the maximum match with 5 days left. I know that all of you can do this.

 

As it stands right now, I'm (+ Kelly and Gene) only on the hook for $35 in match money...I've still got $15 more for you to take. Make the $500 over the goal and we add $150 between the three of us and, I believe Jim from Easy Wood pledged another $25. That will be a total of $675 over the $1500 goal.

 

Let's show them how much we appreciate the sacrifice that they have made for us.

Hopefully, the Merlo's will be able to enjoy a happier Christmas than what they might have had. Obviously, their loss cannot be replaced.

Take care of yourself John. Get well soon.
