Awesome People Doing Awesome Things For Other Awesome People...

UPDATE: There appear to be many raffles running to help Tam:
In this season where the weather turns cold, bills get a bit higher, and money gets a bit tighter, it would be nice to help out a fellow human being that could use a little bit of a leg up.

So click here and go on over to her site, hit up her tipjar for $5.56. When you make the donation, you’ll get an e-mail confirmation. Forward that e-mail confirmation of payment over to dragon@dragonleatherworks.com with “DONATION TO TAM” in the subject line, and I’ll I’ll put your name in a hat and draw it on Sunday, Dec. 02, 2012.

If you are the lucky name picked, I’ll make you the holster to be delivered by X-Mas. A list of guns that I can fit the Viper for is on the right sidebar on this webpage.
Dennis made me a Viper for my S&W M&P for my trip to Colorado. He pulled it together over a weekend; it came out positively stunning, and the one he's offering for the raffle has even more bells and whistles. Folks, the winner of this raffle is getting one hell of a nice holster.

I've got a bunch of things kicking around Casa Del G. that I'll be offering up as well - and a few surprise items coming from other folks who have asked me to coordinate a raffle (since I happen to have a little experience with that sort of thing after Kilted to Kick Cancer...). I'll pull everything together and then a complete post up with everything shortly, and we'll add this fundraiser to the ever-growing list of ways folks are trying to help one of our own who could use a little...

On a side note, I am positively stunned - but not surprised - by the outpouring of kind words, good thoughts, prayers, and offers for help. Tam's one of the good ones, and we all want to help her out - but we do this for all the members of our tribe what might need a little something here and there. I am stunned by how much money we raised to kick cancer's ass - and we're going to raise some more again to kick cancer's ass another time, this time for Tamara. Someone let me know when the Brady Bunch holds a fundraiser for any reason other than their own salaries.

I love my tribe, I really do - and we want to help one of us who needs it.

That is all.

Can't find Mr. McThag's email on his site, and I don't have an profile/account to post comments. Any way to help so I can bid a bunch of money?
