Well, I know someone who has a web page already set up to collect funds via paypal for a little calculator project that happened here this summer.  ;)   Wouldn't be much effort to modify it to another cause and paypal account.

What say, Brian? We're done with the calculator project.

Count me in.

Seeing as how the couple were a little strapped financially, and had no insurance, is this something the busnut community would want to get involved in with a $$$ fund of some sort, or maybe we can put something together at the bus rally in Arcadia? I've never done anything like this so i'm open for suggestions!

How about a postal address at the Hospital? We don't need a room number since that will change as his condition changes. He's going to be there for a while recovering from surgery, and I KNOW he would love receiving cards, especially from "friends" he doesn't know he has, wishing him a Merry Christmas and a speedy recovery.

Count my wife and I in on the fundraiser. I'll just have to let her know we're going to do this.  :)

If I've learned anything from this community of busnuts, it's that we all pull/pray for each other in times of need.

Cheers,

- John

This is just great to see you guys come forward zand take the reins!

I just got off the phone with Dennis, dan's brother and he said Dan just got out of surgery and is resting! The medical staff has not told them anything more than what they told them before other than his vital signs are stable.

I also talked to his sister Dee, who is transporting Dan's wife to and from the hospital and having her to stay with her at her house. She said that an account was planning onbeing set up in Wachovia but has not been done yet! I told her about what we (the busnut community) were talking about doing and she thought that was just GREAT. So great se started to cry on the phone! I told her that if we pulled together with our plans that it would probably be a seperate thing than what they are doing and would probably be sent along as one lump sum! Again she was in total agreement!

As for the Hospital address? She didn't know it right off but said that it is the Grady memorial Hospital in Atlanta, Ga. and dan would be in the ICU section 7-L and thast he would get anything that was sent there! I'm sure the actuall address could be found and posted!

If anyone wantsd to call to verify any of this inof the numbers I have are:

Dennis  cell   321/863-4683
Dee  cell     706/994-0464
Dee home  706/745-3952

They live in a rural area and she said sometimes the cell signal does not work at home! (must be nextel)

Anyway, this is all I know and if i said or did anything wrong with our plans, I appoligize! Like I said, I never did anything like this before!

I'm in guy's

They need our help, financial and spirtual. It could have just as easily been me or anyone here, so we need to help these folks. Life ain't fair sometimes, but maybe we can make a difference in this situation.

Ace,

That's a good idea. Maybe you can make this thread sticky. It seems to be the most logical for now since it gives the full history of the thread.



Done.  Hope this helps - Phil
