    Myself and Chevyhuny have learned that a member of this wonderfull site that suffers from Lukemia is not doing well. In fact they have been fighting another bout for about 3 months, and have been down.
    Well, that means no working eother, and the family income is her hubby, who Im sure has his hands full. The bills are stacking up and the home is in jeprody, and I cant help but think, if Kelly dosent pull through this, and her time runs out, I dont weant it to be in a homeless shelter, she is too good and sweet a person to let that happen, I think maybe we can at least offer some help to a fellow ck5'er /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif There are 2 ways..

    1- money Order titled to:
    Kelly Erue
    (((((((and mailed to us here at))))))))
    ...417 4th st ne
    ...auburn, wa 98002

    2- ChevyCaGal has a paypal setup too /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif
    P.S.-Kelly and family do not know we are doing this and all responsability of begging is on me, they should not feel embarresed by this, I TAKE ALL BLAME /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif thanks to all. /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif
    For all PNW folks, I will know this week if a car wash can be held at 4wpw in Tacoma, and maybe Lynnwood, please watch for sign-up list in the NW forum /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: ATTN: Another Member in need of help. Please read.

    So far I have $160 collected from the NCBD and the good folks on Pirate4x4.com! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    If you would like to donate to paypal you can do so using ChevyCaGal86@aol.com. Please note your name, user name and if you are from CK5. I will be sending a money order to Kelly with a card. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    BTW if anyone is new to using paypal.com when you sign up you will get a $5 credit.... so if you want to donate but don't have any to spare.... you can sign up and use your credit! Someone messaged me about this and I thought, hey good idea so I thought I would mention it! Thanks again folks!

    I have had a few people ask... I will be collecting paypal up until Sunday (March 2nd) night. Monday morning I will go get a money order and send everything to Kelly... /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Ohh it updates on www.gbr4wd.com. Full update is archived there. Robin came home Feb 13 after 4 months in the hospitals. Club member works for Carry Limo and arranged a limo ride home for her. She is having to stay at her parrents till they can get a house built. We have a builder cutting a hell of a deal. We have been trying to help them raise a down payment. We are building a Jeep (yeah I know) that is going to be raffled. Spent Saturday welding in patch pannels.
    When we get ready for the raffle it will be posted here. We have been very fortunate to get a lot of donations from local 4x4 shops in parts. Last I heard it's going to be $50 a ticket and a max of 500 tickets and a min of 300. We also had one of our members donat a NEW warn 9500 that will be a seperate runner up prize.
    This new home will more than likly be their home for the rest of their lives so we are trying to help them get the best they can. Robin will probably not be able to get back to work till fall at the earliest. Still having residual problems from the head injury.
    They managed to get a used van last week and a used lift and Ralph was putting it together last Saturday. She will be at our club meeting this week if all goes well. The Donations have helped them a ton and they are getting though it.
    I feel like a heel but the one time I was able to get to the Hospital to see her in the last couple month She was asleep and I didn't get to see her. Stuff just kept coming up that was beyond my control. What time I could spare I worked on the Jeep.

    Need any help or tips on what to do to help Kelly and her family feel free to ask. If I don't have the answer I see what I can do to find it out for you.
    The 4x4 Community is full of caring folks. CK5 and PBB were major contributors to what we were able to raise in pure donations. Our club is also very active with Southern and several of the clubs under Southern ( www.sfwda.org ) really got together and raised some donations within their clubs to help out. Several of the members for Southern Jeeps have been helping us out and they are sponsoring an event to go with the raffle. It's amazing to me how so many people can lend a hand to help people out. Really makes me proud to be involved in the 4x4 community.
    Good luck with things. As soon as I get paid this week I'll pe putting in what I can spare. It takes time and many people do not use credit cards. Donations from checks will take a week or so to start showing up.

    I know it's not much, but how about this: I was going to sell off that TH400 application 203 hi-lo complete with the 400 output shaft. Didn't want a lot for it, just wanted to see someone who could use it for a doubler get it. So now I'll give it to the first person who can pick it up here in Ventura, CA and you can make a donation in the amount that it's worth to you.
    I'm currently unemployed too, but I don't need the money that badly.
