Helping one of our own

I'm pretty sure every member on this forum has felt the generosity of Jim (Bigshizza).  What some of you might not know is that he had a pretty major surgery a few months back and is still on the recovery.  I feel we as the community/family we are help those when they need it even if they don't ask for it.  It is what we do.

Having said the above there have been some anonymous members who have stepped up and are putting together some pretty amazing raffle prizes to help this go along.  Once they provide the info of what they have put together to me I will forward it on but for sure there are 3 prizes available with the opportunity for more.  How do you become eligible to win said prizes?  Well you will donate whatever you are able to and for every $10 you donate, you will get an entry into the raffle drawing.  The more you donate the more entries you receive.  We will run this until Dec 1 and we will hold a live drawing at the Chicago Herf on Dec 9th.  While the prizes are a great incentive that is not truly why we are doing this.  Medical bills and rehab can be a real pain in the butt and anytime we can help ease that burden I feel inclined to do so.

Any donation you want to make will come to my paypal address [email protected] and please send it as friends and family to avoid any fees so we can send every penny to Jim.  If you do not use paypal, PM me and we can arrange other methods of donations.

If you have interest in putting together an additional raffle item please pm me as we want those members to stay anonymous and then I will post up the info on it.

    A member has offered up a handmade quilt that would be good for a man cave with a wine, coffee, cigar theme.  This will be an additional item raffled off!

    Step up and join the generosity people.Even a little bit goes a long way. 

    Jim's generosity to others has gone well above what was needed or asked for. The man has a huge heart and now it is time for us to return the love.

    Get well soon Big Guy.

    On a side note:

    I mis-read "rubber" too. Guess Afghanistan isn't as exciting after all.

     How do you become eligible to win said prizes?  Well you will donate whatever you are able to and for every $10 you donate, you will get an entry into the raffle drawing.  The more you donate the more entries you receive.  
    Wait, I can get in on this for a mere $10 or $20 donation?! That's crazy! Everyone should be in on this raffle. Great prizes to be won and a great cause to support.
  • PatrickbrickPatrickbrick Lake Zurich IlPosts: 6,674 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Please also keep in mind folks that this raffle will be based on a random number generating system.  Each 10$ donation from an individual is assigned a number.  This program will be run in front of about 30 witnesses to insure randomness and honor, plus it's fun ass hell to see who wins!  This is for the Shhhhhiiiiizzzzzzz, but it's also a very fun game for everyone!  I understand this game comes at a price, but it starts at two terrible cups of Starbucks crap.  I know Starbucks is popular, but these prizes will last a lot longer and will give the winner something to talk about, the two cups of coffee will not last nor carry a conversation.
