Ok, I hope people will, between purchases of woot, stop by once in a while and look this forum over. I will try to give to every charity (no cruzer, your college beer monies fund is not a charity, LOL!) and do what I can to help.

If you have a charity you feel passionate about, please post a link to it and why people should care, donate, support, etc.

I think this community of wooters can make a difference to all people in need. (No cruzer, beer monies still don't count) Holmesdog, this is for you[Z]

SO POST AWAY Cool


Give the Gift of Site

Please donate any used pair of prescription glasses to help both children and adults that cannot afford clear vision, to see for the first time.

Not asking for money, just one pair (or as many as you can find laying around Cool ) to help people that cannot afford to see.

I will post pictures and stories from the Sonora, MX mission I will be on in September off site to show you what your contributions meant to the people in need.

Please send them to;

Luxottica Retail
Attn: Woody1
4000 Luxottica Place
Mason, OH 45040

I appreciate woot for allowing this to post, and the person with the most pairs sent in by Sept 12th, (nudge factor coming, and send them all together please, so they can be counted) will get a package worth over $500 including a new Home Toshiba DVD Recorder and Dell 5.1 speaker set. This comes out of my pocket; this is just one of many, and I do mean many, charities I try to support.

Heifer Project International

Our History

A Four-Footed Attack Against Hunger

A Midwestern farmer named Dan West was ladling out rations of milk to hungry children during the Spanish Civil War when it hit him.

“These children don’t need a cup, they need a cow.”

West, who was serving as a Church of the Brethren relief worker, was forced to decide who would receive the limited rations and who wouldn’t – literally, who would live and who would die. This kind of aid, he knew, would never be enough.

So West returned home to form Heifers for Relief, dedicated to ending hunger permanently by providing families with livestock and training so that they “could be spared the indignity of depending on others to feed their children.”

In 1944, the first shipment of 17 heifers left York, Pennsylvania, for Puerto Rico, going to families whose malnourished children had never even tasted milk.

Why heifers? These are young cows that haven’t yet given birth – making them perfect not only for supplying a continued source of milk, but also for supplying a continued source of support. That’s because each family receiving a heifer agrees to “pass on the gift” and donate the female offspring to another family, so that the gift of food is never-ending.

This simple idea of giving families a source of food rather than short-term relief caught on and has continued for almost 60 years. As a result, millions of families in 115 countries are experiencing better health, more income and the joy of helping others.

No on the beer money but I will keep my word, just donated $20 to this one. I like this one and forgot it was out there. Now don't think I can keep this up indefinitly, I already have 60+ charities I deal with. Also, this one will be doubled by my company

Dear Woody:

Now that 2005 is well underway, the staff and campers alike are looking forward to a phenomenal summer! Everyone is proud of the hard work and successes of this past year. Your recent donation of $20.00, paid with your MasterCard, will ensure scores of new campers will experience the magic that takes place at Victory Junction.



With ten summer sessions in 2005, we’ll aim to serve more than 1000 campers. This will be double the number of children (and twice the fun) as our first summer. If you are interested in volunteering, we would love your help. Our summer calendar is now posted on our website for your use.



We are thankful for friends like you who clearly understand the mission of the Victory Junction Gang Camp. Victory Junction is a magical, memorable and medically-advanced facility that is changing the lives of children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses and their families. The feedback we receive from campers’ families lets us know these children are more independent and livelier after their time here. And they can’t wait to come back!



Because of you, we are celebrating victory at every turn. We are grateful for your continued support.

Please know that in order to ensure that our costs remain low, this email will serve as your acknowledgement and tax receipt. No goods or services were received in exchange for this gift. If you require further assistance, please contact our office.

Once again, thank you for your continued support.

Sincerely,
Victory Junction Gang Camp

you would think, "My God, what a loser". You would kill your own mother

So true. Some people love being miserable. They look for pity parties and the like. They feel special when they are whining. What a miserable existance.

I don't know if I would go that far. Actually, I know I wouldn't go that far.

P.S. Your spelling errors are catching. You and pete spelled existence with an "a" Wink

It's actually quite the common error.

Quick, someone check my spelling and grammar for me.

I am doing a walk for the Leukemia and Lymphoma society next month (sept. 17th) I would be sooooooo greatful (sp?) of any wooters who could help out by donating even $1. I lost my dad to Leukemia on 8-5-03, I was 20, he was 47. He was diagnosed and admitted to the hospital immediately and died 1 week later. There are some facts on my doantion web page about the survival rates and other blood cancer things. Think about it people blood cancer is one of the worst kinds you get, there is no tumor to remove, it's your blood. All of the money goes to funding research and helping families that are struggling while battling blood cancers. I will absolutley not benefit from this in any way whatsoever, my family lost it's battle. I just want to try to help some others in the future so they don't have to go through what my family has experienced. Hell even if you don't donate but sign up to walk in your community's walk I'll be happy! The link to donate is: http://www.active.com/donations/fundraise_public.cfm?key=ltnRScott2


Thanks to any one who thinks about it!!!

Thanks for the support!

I was being trained on an auto-refractor this am. They should have me run the computers in Mexico not the eyeglass machines. We have to take turns doing everything on the mission, so computers are good, but checking people's eyesight is like dooming the Mayans and Aztecs to a life in the dark ages again.

Here's another way to contribute:
myplasticheart and tokyoplastic are working together to help fight Cancer! tokyoplastic will be raffling off an original 3 piece canvas (valued at $1500) from their show at the Fredericks Frasier Gallery in New York. All you need to do to enter is purchase a set of 3 limited edition postcards from myplasticheart and you'll be automatically entered into the raffle. All proceeds from the raffle will go to fighting Leukemia through The Firefly Ride of 2005 and Leuka 2000.
