Re: THE LOTTERY - Donation Campaign 2015!
It was a real exciting thing. In fact I was the last one to know which whip will go to whom. We tried everything we could to make the whole thing safe. And the outcome was really more than surprising. But I still don't understand why the folks who didn't donate anything...didn't donate anything. I know about Pokkis and David. And I know what Simon is donating in the background. But the others? Would it've been really so hard to spend at least a few bucks? I thought - I was hoping - that the whole community would act like a community. But it didn't. Jeff, Ryan, Adam, Caleb, Einar, Rhett, Gio and Michael... Why? Perhaps you like to tell me - to tell us - why you didn't participate. I know that it isn't politically correct to tell names. But - I am from Germany. And I am used (and known) to tell the truth at it is. With a little donation of these folks we could have make it over 1000 Euro with the forum members alone. And the more than generous donation from Daniel we would've been over 1500 Euros. I mean... Folks like Rachel, Jessica, Taylor and Stefan - all new members. They donated. But members who were here so much longer than those folks - nothing. Of course everyone of you had a very good reason not to donate, I am sure. But it still makes me sad. Roy - for example - he's working all day at the ranch. he has severe health problems. He's plaiting in the evenings and his spare time to donate a whip. And others were not able to go to PayPal and send at least something. That - dear folks - is poor. I'm not taking about me. It is about the puppies who need help and are grateful for every single dollar. Or Euro. Well. Those who donated, whips and/or money - please enjoy the video. Those who did not donate - please watch it over and over again. It will show you what great opportunity you missed.
And now to those lucky guys who did not only made it possible to send a lot of money to the shelter but did win a whip on top, too! By now everybody should know who won what. So please contact your donator for the shipping address. The sooner you give them your address, the sooner you will be owner of a great whip. A whip with a wonderful background story. You will not only have a whip, then. You will hold the result of the good deeds and hearts of some great folks who really care for the life of others. All in your hands. To be honest - I am a bit envy. On the other hand I am happy for everyone who won. And those are not only the ones who have a whip, now. Every single one of you who donated is a winner. I thank you all for being so generous. To see all those tickets in that box was overwhelming. A lot of good will and lot of help for those who really need it in a blue plastic box.
