I can't edit the last post any more...
The donations should actually be made here https://www.giveforw...david-gustafson. Sorry for the confusion, I had to set up multiple accounts with giveforward before I figured out how I could set it up myself, while still having dag provide the organization with his info.

What specifically are you trying to figure out Dag? I'm not sure if you have the fundraising coaches email or not, but let me know and I'll either send it to you or act as a liaison between the two of you, your choice. He seems to be a very nice person who is genuinely there to help.

I'd like to personally thank CaliforniaPyro and Hindsight for their very generous donations. Thank you both. I truly appreciate your kindness and selflessness in beng the first to contribute.

Edit: Sorry hindsight. I didn't mean to leave you out of there. A very big thanks goes to you as well.

Thanks Mr. Burrito! Always willing to help one of our own. However, most of the credit should go to Hindsight, who added more to that donation than I did. He was also VERY generous in contributing to the recovery from my most recent accident.

Just wanted to let everyone know that the fundraiser is still going. Currently we have raised 5% of our goal. I implore anyone who can afford to contribute a few bucks to do so. Thanks to everyone who has already donated, including those of you who have chosen to remain anonymous.

Thank you all, Cali, Hindsight, thanks for kicking this off for me.  My wife broke down last night when she came home and saw the total. :D  It looks like we now have the Integra and skin grafts all paid for, the next chunk goes to pay off our share of the CCU room. 

 

Just so you all are aware, our share was more than double what we are trying to raise, this is all that is left and that is a good thing.  If any of you are not interested in a donation, please feel free to message me about becoming a Team Member, it costs nothing and all you do is send out a link to your circle of influence.  If you know about a foundation that could help, send that along too.

 

Thank you all!

Dave

Over here it's all about wishful thinking i'm afraid.Sadly, every last coin goes towards filling up the storage units with all the stuff that is soon to become impossible to get your hands on here in EU. I cant help but feel somewhat ashamed over it, but hell, i even postponed buying a "new" car, to replace the one i junked a while back, just so i can store the stuff before it goes extinct. Good thing i'm not working, or i'd need the car... (but also would be making more money... *sigh*)

 

As always, best wishes.

B!

MrB. I understand The necessity for frugality better than you may think. You could still prove to be an asset to the fundraiser by simply helping to promote it. To anyone interested in helping, visit the Giveforward address posted above. You can make a donation or help promote the fundraiser by clicking the "Share on Facebook" and/or "Become a Team Member" buttons.

I want to take a moment to show you all what we went through this past year.  

 

The first pic is me in 2009 right after I got back from my first PGI convention.

This is from the day I got home from the hospital, trust me, this is a flattering picture.

This picture is of me and my wife Patt this Easter.

I assure you all, its better to wear your PPE than to be burned.  If you can help, please do so, if you cant donate than join my team so we can spread the word.  

 

Thank you all,

Stay Green,

Dave

Just wanted to give an update on the fundraiser. We are currently at 20% of the goal. The fundraiser will still be running for 66 more days. If you can afford to make a donation please do so, if not feel free to join the fundraising team. We could use all of the help promoting the event that we can get. Thank you.
