Surf Hunter and Snebluemoon Need Our Help

You've possibly seen the thread. His mother and stepfather are trapped overseas due to an illness. Several folks had said to let us know if he needed help. He does. They have no vacation time left, and will be needing to head overseas.

 

Not sure how I'm going to do this yet. If you have any ideas or suggestions or something you want to donate for an auction, that could be done. Let me know.

If this isn't a joke, make sure it's not a current style of Phishing Scam's out there.

I am gonna save the edit button, but you HAVE to be kidding me. Surfhunter (Tom) is a prominent member of this site, and a forum leader here. Tammy knows him personally. Over the years, I have had many personal correspondences with him. And a host of other folks here know who he is, and many are good friends with him.

 

It was only about 2-3 days ago he made a post here asking for our thoughts and prayers for the difficult situation his parents are in.

 

So your post is a bit out of line.....:squid:

Any Travel agents here? Possibly enough of us travel that we could transfer frequent flier miles to get airfare? I could chalk up 15k Delta - I would imagine Tokyo probably 100k miles. Not sure the logistics in many people transfering miles - but I'll throw it out there for consideration.

May I suggest a simple cash (paypal or check) fundraiser to help one of our brothers in need?



 



Whatever you figure out, say the word, I'm in. I'll donate jigheads and/or sinkers if we do the auction thing.

Easy guys, 22 is only trying to help. He's obviously not aware of what's going on. He would never be out of line on purpose.

 

I'm in for whatever.

Tom is definitely one of the good guys, for sure, and I know you are too. As I see it, it's all good.

Thanks all-

I can tell you it is a very hard and humbling thing to ask for help like this. Shannon and I are at our wits end with everything that is going on and we really are trying to figure out the logistics on all that is going on. We have a very strong and capable family base both here and my intermediate family but have kind of hit a wall.

 

Don't worry about a thing nalu22, you don't know me from Adam and I personally think your throwing that out there is great in order to protect our family members here.

 

I will continue to update the other thread daily as information arrives and and open to all ideas and suggestions as to how we can move forward to help my dad and get him back stateside.

 

 

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart,

Tom

Nalu - I truly apologize that I came down too hard. I just wanted to nip any doubt in the bud, as Tom and Shannon, not to mention the rest of their family, are in a difficult situation.
