Certainly looks like the kind of person we're looking to help.

Agreed. That's a great idea John as my not so little girl is considering a biomed engineering major. When is the next event? Hopefully in the summer.

Oh well, she'll still be in school and spring season doesn't end 'til the 19th for me not including playoffs. Some team will be practicing that morning. Some day.

I haven't updated this thread in a while. Donations have been slow the last few months, only ~$150 raised.

Now that the holidays are over, things are starting to happen. It's been difficult to coordinate everyone involved. We have a candidate and will be meeting with him soon. I expect to have several announcements over the next few weeks.

I'll be putting a few items in the KSAs this month and I encourage others to do the same. Please bid them up! This is a great cause. We need to get to at least $12k if not more.

I also want to share this plaque that the WFTW sent. At first I had mixed feelings about them spending money on such things, but it's important to be recognized. Most of their sponsors are corporations looking for publicity and new customers. Not so with Bullionstacker. We give from the heart not expecting anything in return.

I'm very proud of this group and everything we've accomplished over the years.

THANK YOU!

This is for all of us. :clap:

That’s awesome!! I have an idea and really want to facilitate this myself but with my current travel schedule at work, I am not able to...............The idea is to do a WFTW Rolling Stop Auction. Have all members that want to donate items mail them in advance to the facilitator. Have one person group items in lots and run a big auction all to benefit this project. If someone volunteers to run the auction, I will mail some items and I am sure others will as well.

Great idea. :idea: I'd be happy to run it. I'll start a new thread so don't post here.

We also have a new Texas bar with a WFTW logo coming out soon. It's in the queue at YPS but probably a low priority right now.
