Let's help a brotha out.(EDIT: FUND RAISER ENDED)

Recommended Posts

For those that are following Dan (Danimal) and his big trip in South America know today while visiting Machu Picchu he dropped his good digital camera and it broke. He is now without a camera other than his little iphone. Dan's camera has been our window into his world and journey and I personally have enjoyed every damn post of it. Dan said he doesn't have it in his budget to replace the camera so im going to try and do a little fund raiser. I'd like to gather the funds via friends and followers and send it to him via paypal so he can source and purchase a new camera while on the the road.

If anyone wants to contribute to Dan's camera replacement fund I'm going to head it up. Send paypal funds of any size to.....

EDIT:    PAYPAL EMAIL REMOVED BECAUSE FUND RAISER IS OVER.....RESULTS WILL BE POSTED BELOW.

.....and I'll be sure dan receives every dime. I'm also going to do some coordination with various web sites and forums very soon and make this more formal/official. Please include any well wishes and or comments in the donations and i'll be sure you get credit for your contribution. 
Please sent funds via paypal freinds and family so we incur no fees or charges. Or if you wish you can send fund to me personally and ill be sure to include them in the transfer.

Lets get the big guy a new way to show us the world!

I know not getting any post here but there is lots of love coming in from the O.R. folks. Keep it coming. Not sure how much he will need for the camera purchase but anything extra will obviously go into the trip as well. 

Thanks to all those that have already donated!!

Okay folks first of all I want to say between here, FB and ADV Rider we have had a overwhelming response to this call out. I want to thank everyone that has donated you have truley out done yourselves. This whole paypal thing has made it so easy.  I'm happy to say we have more than over passed my initial goal and amount of money i think Dan will need to replace his camera. At this point I'm just going to leave it open for continued donations till tomorrow(11/24) evening maybe around 8pm.  And all the fund that go over what is needed for his camera replacement will simply go towards and other expenses and thing associated with his trip as a whole. So anyone else that still wishes to contribute by all means your generosity will find it's place during Dan's journey. So tomorrow evening I'll post a list of all the donors so they can be thanked and recognized(won't post how much for each individual) but I will post the total once I have sent it all to Dan. Thanks again y'all !

Got to donor list compiled that I'll send to Dan. List is in the order that the donations came in and dollar amounts have been hidden from public but Dan will know who gave what. I have also included any comment that came along with each donation.  I'm going only going to post this here for now and leave the door open for more to donate till later this evening then compile the final list that I'll send to Dan with the monies. 

Huge thanks to everyone that had given so far. This has been fun and overwhelming all at the same time for me personally. I'll post the total later too.

FYI...Also heard from some folks that said they wish to send Dan some funds directly so those names won't be included in my campaign or list.

No need to be sorry. I don’t know how you’d make the connection. I forgot it was in my wife’s name.

Okay folk this list is current and the fund raiser is over. Like I said before we got a overwhelming response and have raised......

$950.....for Dan to replace his camera, help cover the glass door he broke at the Hostel last week and the rest will just buy him more days on the roads or for future unforseen things. I have sent the money to Dan and currently awaiting his initial reply to it. It was far more than I thought we would get so I'm sure he's shocked right now. 

THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL YOUR HELP A MASSIVE SERVINGS OF GENEROSITY, YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!!

Was gone all weekend at my father-in-laws funeral events and I just saw this thread. I missed the donation window, but wanted to say the OR really stepped up for Danimal. GREAT JOB!

Thank you to all the friends at OR who contributed to the fund Tim set up. 
Aside from allowing me to replace the Nikon (something I wasn’t going to do, at least not right away, and not with something as nice as the Nikon I broke) it also helped me get back on track again budget-wise was I’ve had a few unforeseen setbacks recently that set me back more than expected. 
It really was an eye-opening experience to see not only how quickly the amount raised was reached, but also helped me reconnect with some of you emotionally. 
I’m happy to see that so many from here are following my exploits online elsewhere, and am looking forward to the day some time in the future where I’m back in Ohio and we can all have a few beers and share stories from the road. 
It’s not easy being on the road this long continually. Even moreso when doing it solo. Checking in to OR occasionally helps me stay grounded in my past, as so many of you were involved in the evolution of my riding goals and being able to someday fulfill them. 
From the bottom of my heart, thank you all. 
Timmy is something special. That’s for sure.

Missed the window also as I'm seldom on the computer on the weekend. But I have definitely been following your post here and on ADVrider and wish you the best on your travel. Great of time to set this up. I know you will make good use of the resources. Keep up the blog, we are all enjoying your travels immensely.
