I have teamed up with Jacob to sponsor a raffle for a young kid in need of a bone marrow transplant. Basically, he has a rare skin disease, and if he doesnt get this transplant, he will die from skin cancer within 10 years. This certain procedure has only been done twice (IIRC) and therefore Kyle's insurance has deemed in "experimental" and will not provide any financial help. It is estimated that $500,000 is needed for the operation. Since May, nearly $200,000 has been raised. Much more info can be found here: http://cotaforkyleh.com/
I got the opportunity to meet Kyle recently, and this young man is amazing. He has such high spirits and is a very down to earth kid. Kyle loves the Dallas Cowboys, and we talked about their season so far, as well as what we expected for the rest of the season. I felt very privileged to get to meet him, and am very excited that I have the opportunity to help a great kid such as Kyle.
Jacob from SundownAudio.com
was kind enough to donate an SAE-1200D and I have personally pitched in a 12" SSA Icon/Fisher Customs package. I also want to give a BIG THANK you to the fellas at SoundSolutionsAudio.com
. They were kind enough to allow me to exchange a BNIB Dual 1 ohm Icon for a Dual 2 model. Thanks again guys Duece212
just sent me a private message and will be ordering a Kicker 1/0 install kit (PKD1) to add to the raffle. JaggedEdgeKustumVinyl.com
has kicked in some vinyl decals to go along with the package. Also, Scott Hall and Jon Buragas from the Amp Repair Center
has contributed a free amp repair as a secondary prize.
All warranties on the items are transferable to the winner of the raffle.
The raffle rules are fairly simple. This is very similar to how Nick from IA has run a couple raffles, and it seems like he has had good success doing it like this. I sure hope he doesnt mind me borrowing his idea.
Tickets will be for sale from Nov. 2nd to Nov 23rd. They must be purchased through my online store, at http://www.fishercustoms.com/store/i...products_id=37
. But as many, or as little as you want. Every dollar helps!
On Nov. 24th the drawing of the raffle will begin. One name will be drawn each day, until any given name has been drawn 3 times. Every ticket that gets drawn, will be put back into the hat, so even a donation of $1 has a chance of winning the raffle items.
Day 1- Person #3
Day 2- Person #6
Day 3- Person #1
Day 4- Person #3
Day 5- Person #2
Day 6- Person #1
Day 7- Person #3
In this instance, Person #3 would be the winner of the raffle prize. Tickets will be able to be purchased up until the winner is actually selected.
Guys, lets make this as successful as possible. Donate what you can, 100% of the donations will go directly to Kyle's cause. If you want to help further, just simply spread the word. Post this to other forums you visit, link this thread, keep it bumped to the top for us. Just whatever you guys can do. We actually have the opportunity to see a life get saved.
