Christmas Donation to Local Family

My local car club is doing something for a local family facing some real ugly times in the next couple of months. Below is the original post. We are getting some money together to help make some kids expected final christmas with their dad a rememberable one. I've had my differences with the person heading the cause, but it is definitely worth setting those asside for this.

If anyone else would like to send a few bucks to this cause, you can either send me a PayPal to rliving@cox.net or send it directly to the team shocker racing paypal at bradbabin@hotmail.com (This is slostang here on evolution). If you don't have paypal or would rather send a check/money order/cash/toys/whatever, shoot me a PM and I will get you my address and I will make sure they get whatever you send.

Thanks
Rob

Here's the orginal post:

A family me and my wife know are going through a bad time that's not going to get better . They have three kids two girls(11,10) and a boy( 8 ) my wife and I have known the for a long time and they have never had much but they got by but now billy has found out that this will probly be his last Christmas with his kids and wife. He has liver cancer that has spread through his hole body the docters gave him three to six months. Now I'm not posting this for him or his wife! But for the kids, I would like the last Christmas with there dad to be a good one.

If anyone would like to help me out with this in anyway please post up . The kids are putting together a list for Santa that I will get and post op asap . Brad (youlost) will post up his paypal acc for anyone who would like to help with some money for toys ,or toys post up and I will pick them up what ever TSR can do will be better than what the kids would have got with out us !

Also if this works out I would like for TSR to help deliver the toys to them . What better to brighten a kids day than a mile longs line of BAD A$$ cars with trunks full of toys ! Im sure I missed some stuff just post up if you have any questions or ideas ..
thanks

Re: Christmas Donation to Local Family

Anything is welcome...$1, $10, $10000 whatever.

Also, all local members are invited to be a part of the cruise over to deliver the presents. We would like to get nice big group of cars together when this happens.

We really need all the help we can get with this. I know it's hard times for everyone right now, but it can't be as bad as the people we are trying to help. So please try to do whatever it is you can, even it is to just show up and lend a helping hand. Please all the local boys try to help make this the best christmas ever for these kids.

Re: Christmas Donation to Local Family

Well, You and Louis are all located in or near denham...so it would be kinda silly for y'all to come up to BR to meet up. I can meet up with y'all down in Denham though...

On a related note to what louis said. come on all you locals. Even if you couldn't give, show up for the cruise if you're not working. we need as many cars as possible.

Re: Christmas Donation to Local Family

anyone wanting to help we are giving a cash donation from everyone so even if you can only put 5 or 10 dollars it will be more than welcome. If you can't make it to the event and would like to make a donation please PM Rob(purevenom) or I and we will make arrangements with you to pick it up. Thanks again and Merry Christmas

It is saturday @ 10:30 am.

Cash is optional...and may be too late to give as well since they went shopping last night. But your car making an appearance would be greatly appreciated.

Bump.

Any additional donations can be made tomorrow in cash, or paypal to me at rliving@cox.net ASAP. All donations from this point on will be used to purchase a gift card or placed in an envelope tomorrow at the cruise.

Re: Christmas Donation to Local Family

i got a few but it started raing, i think rob and louis also snapped some. ill upload mine soon, it was a good turnout besides the rain and the supposedly "10 min" ride lol. turned out to be about 25-30 mins. its no problem that you couldnt make it, its rough trying to do stuff with the holidays, most of the guys that went didnt stay too long anyway.

Re: Christmas Donation to Local Family

Yeah, and there are some vids too. I'll get them asap and get my pics uploaded as well. About 50 or so cars made it out...we moved the venue from the house to a nearby school because there were too many cars for the street.
