    At the risk of bothering people I'm gonna go ahead and be an annoying salesman. I don't do that with anything I personally sell because I hate it myself. But I'm fine with being viewed as pushy if it gets Kylie help. I'm glad to be viewed that way in fact.

    So here's my pitch. Kylie needs a new heart, badly. Very badly. She's so small and fragile and has barely started her little life, she just needs a chance.
    I just looked and her fund (needs $23,000) isn't even to $9,000 yet. I think with as many members as we have on this site we should be able to bust that $23,000 in a single day.
    We have 7,746 active members on this site. If each person gave just $3.00 today (three measly dollars) we'd be well over the $23,000 needed.

    Like I say I know times are tough, I get that definitely. I'm just asking that each of us scrape together $3.00 to help this little girl live. I'm actually begging you in fact.

    There's been so many great people donate already and I thank you for that. I appreciate this site and it's membership very much, it's a large part of my life so I hope I'm not wearing out my welcome here. I just wanna see Kylie get better or at the very least have a chance too.

    Here's the funding jar link where you can contribute to Kylie's fund.

    http://www.fundingjar.com/projects/68/project-info/

    I sincerely thank you for you time and consideration.

    p.s. For those of you that don't know, Kylie is the daughter of one of our own members here btcobalt1. You can read more about it here:
    http://www.bushcraftusa.com/forum/showthread.php?t=63030

    I have no connection to this in anyway other than it being one of our own needing help.

    ***Update*** Kylie's fund is now overflowing thanks in large part to many generous people on this site. I can't say thank you enough , you guys and gals are the best.
    Kylie is on the donor list but is running out of time. She needs our prayers more than ever, please help in that way if at all possible.

    Here's a post from Mtnmanjoe that might come in handy if you want to help further

    I just went to donate and $5.00 is the minimum so scratch the $3.00 I mentioned above. That's a good thing though, $5.00 is better yet.

    You can use paypal or a credit card for this in case you're wondering.

    Minimum donation on fundinjar is $5.00 but if two people team up you can do $6 and both of you donate your $3 that way.

    It's real easy to use that site folks, it works with paypal so it's not like you are sending financial information to random websites you've never heard of.

    There are several options as far as identity from full name to totally anonymous.

    Even if you can't donate, at least post a link to your facebook if you have it. Spread the word. At least FB is good for something.

    I believe in keeping your giving a secret. If you feel the same there is an option for anonymous donations. Remember if you had a situation like this we would all do the same for you.

    Thanks for the push Iz, this is better than eating out or whatever I normally waste money on.

    All it takes for something bad to happen, is to let good people do nothing.

    Thanks

    Come on BCUSA brothers & sisters! Jump on board with this! Just think if this was your daughter! There is probably no individual who could pay for this life saving surgery alone, but together we can do it! What an awesome idea! Please throw in $5 or more. It's fast & easy!

    Iz, you're not the only one moved to tears by the generosity of folks in this forum.

    I just donated. Praying daily. Posted info and fundingjar link on Facebook.

    Thanks Iz. Your welcome is not diminished in the slightest!

    Times certainly are tough. However, i cant even think about buying new toys without giving what i can to Kylie. I have a rather large family gathering coming up this weekend and am going to see if i cant raise a few bucks from each person and get it in to the fund monday or tuesday. I'm sending prayers until then.

    I've been off and on the forum lately and must have missed this. I went and donated, I am truly sorry to hear this unfortunate news. I hope you and your family pull through this btcobalt1 and I hope Kylie gets better, I'm not a praying kind of guy but your family is in my thoughts. Thanks Iz for posting this.

    I don't like people. My wife says I'm anti-social. Small children annoy me. People asking for money make me mad. I have few if any redeeming qualities.

    But

    I wiped a tear away when I saw Kylie's picture. Anybody that can't pass up a few beers tonight for this little girl has truly lost their connection to the human race.

    Donate.

    I just spent $20 on lunch with my dad. I don't have a lot of extra money, but in that light, it's certain that I can afford to give at least that much and skip eating out once next week. Or a few beers tonight. Or that new Mora.

    That $20 will not make a difference in my life. It may very well make a difference in hers. Give what you can, guys. Remember what's truly important in this life.

    $20 on the way. $20 more each month until she gets a new ticker.
