davehogg posts over in his LJ:
Angie and I have a dear pair of friends – R&S. Rob just got back from his third overseas tour of duty in the Air National Guard, his second to Iraq. Last month, a non-profit group that helps military families in this situation made their mortgage payment … and the check bounced.
This has left them in a very ugly financial situation.
So, we are having the first Virtual Arts, Crafts and Bake Sale.
If you donate $10, S will send you a plate of brownies.
For $20, I’ll send you an 8×10 of any picture on my Flickr page.
Want a picture taken of something/someone specific? Want your picture taken with Spark? Want to babysit Britt? Want to do Angie’s math homework? Feel free to make us an offer!
[EDIT: To do this as quickly as possible, you can send the money to my PayPal account, which is my davehogg at ATT dot net.]
If you have a few spare dollars to throw that way, go leave a comment to Dave’s entry. I’d appreciate it if you did.
(I know some folks are reluctant to donate to random appeals like this, because they have no way to know if the people involved are on the level. Well, presumably you know me, and I know and trust davehogg, who is aiela‘s fiancé.)
