Go Fund Me for Craig Hansen
« on: June 09, 2015, 08:08:44 pm »
I hope it is OK to post this in a new thread. I was afraid it would get lost if I put it on the tail end of the other. As many of you know, Craig Hansen, a Kboards member has had a stroke and he and his wife need our help. A friend of his has started a campaign and here is her note.

 Here is the link to the campaign. It's open ended, so if we reach the goal of $1,000, it won't shut down. I'm hoping we can get more than that. But anything anyone can contribute is appreciated. The money will go directly to Craig and Andie; I don't have access to that side of the account.
 
http://www.gofundme.com/craighansen ;
 
One note - it is showing the city as Hazard, KY, which is where I'm located. Craig's in Oregon. I can't figure out how to change that, as it isn't letting me edit the zip code on the campaign. So if anyone has questions about that, that's why it's showing Kentucky.
 
If we can share this with as many people as possible, that'd be wonderful. Let's get the word out there and see what we can do. Thank you!

    You guys are great. :)  I didn't set this up. Another friend of Andie and Craig's did. I was just happy to post it for them.

    I couldn't afford to donate a lot, but every little bit helps, right? I've donated.

    Just donated. Not much but I will donate again this payday. His fund is already up quite a bit, which is a testament to how we all feel, but the more we can do, the better.

    Thank you for setting this up. I prefer direct donation to purchasing books--he gets a bigger cut this way. Posted on Facebook as well.

    I tried to donate but was told there was an issue with the owner's account. Tried again and it went through. So if you run into a problem, just keep trying.

    Can someone drop a link to his books here. I can't find his profile. Might be a good idea for people that can't donate because they are in other countries. They can buy his books instead.

    Thanks for posting this. It's always a wake up call when life deals a blow, and it's good to be able to help, even in a small way.

    You are so right. We tend to get so focused on our own problems, that we need wake up calls once in a while to let us know how fortunate some of us really are. And it does feel so good to help someone else.
