    **DEBBIE'S Final DAYS FUND**

    Debbie is a poor single mother, no family other than her son Ronnie that lives with her in a micro apartment. She is a happy camper. (I just found out she has a second son that was never around)

    Last year her son Ronnies best and only friend was killed in a hit and run while walking with him.
    They tended the boy waiting on the ambulance as he died.
    **DEBBIE'S Final DAYS FUND**-1565486777569facebook951565486771303.jpg
    Ronnie on the left with his friend Gavin...

    Less than a year and a month later Debbie was having vision problems and general confusion, as well as inability to pronounce certain words.
    This fitting the obvious signs of stroke everyone told her to get to the hospital.

    As it turns out it was a tumor that has taken over her brain. She refused treatment which would have just made her miserable.

    She wishes to enjoy her last days and have some laughs. She has laughed a lot in her life when most wouldn't. Always cheerful and as poor as they come.

    Her and her son's necessities are being seen to. Hospice brought her a bed because apparently she didn't have one and slept in a reclining chair.

    Her sons birthday is today he is now 16. His mother is literally all he has besides the town/friends. He was raised well, by exclusively her. He is respectful and they have both witnessed times leading up to this that most will never have to endure. I cannot fully explain poverty. Unless you have lived it, you just don't know.

    These are beautiful people in possibly the worst situation I have ever known bearing the gritty details. This is my girlfriend's friend she visits constantly. Deb and her son babysat our kids a lot for extra money, tended our pets and home when we were gone, etc..

    They deserve some last moments not having to struggle with any financial burden. This is getting harder and harder to write and I have a lot of rules to post so bear with me on edits.


    This money will be for Debbies last laughs.

    I encourage everyone to give a little if they can but understand if they cant.

    IF YOU WISH TO DONATE IT WILL BE CASH IN MAIL you need to private message me for shipping details.


    **All shipments need to have tracking***

    Tracking codes,amounts, and usernames will be sent to me by you and forwarded to Almostgone.
    I will be verifying reciept of the packages with AG as well.

    This is the second fundraiser I have overseen here and after "gofundme" canceled two of my fundraisers without notice after 10 peope had donated... Twice... I will not attempt that method again.

    Almostgone is someone we all trust and know who has been here many years and I appreciate his help in this. He has verified in the last fundraiser as well.
    It's a lot of messages for a busy guy and am glad we have him. He has been on deaths door himself and I am sure he understands the situation.

    All donators will have their usernames put on a best wishes card for Debbie and I will make a video of her recieving the funds and post it here.

    She does not know we are doing this. This will be a complete suprise to her. God help me keep it together, because I have been worried I will break down if I see a tear in her eyes.

    PM ME FOR SHIPPING ADDRESS IF YOU WISH TO DONATE, guys that knew/know me on wickr can pm me for venmo if they choose to and prefer to.

    WE HAVE TO MOVE KINDA QUICK this is not going to be up more than a week or two.

    Once again, admin has my name and address should I not follow through. This is my reputation and I will leave no doubts that you have done a good thing with full documentation.

    After this fundraiser this thread will be removed as will the other "why NOW!" thread.

    All this being said I will not be responsible for a postal service mistake.

    If its a large amount I suggest two packs or more. Again... I did this before with every bit accounted for. I am no theif or con. I live by my honor and integrity and I will let no one down.

    I wish I could use gofundme but they apparently don't like our domain name.

    Also as I said before... If something should happen to Debbie I will be handing the money to Ronnie.

    These people looked after my home, pets, and kids when I was away and I had no worries. They deserve better than what has been handed to them.

    I also wish I had done more for them sooner. Long before this diagnosis. I guess thats something I can learn from this.

    Definitely going to get down on this. I lost my Mom to cancer earlier this year, but I also had the benefit of being 33, so my situation was not as dire.

    Thank you for doing this.

    I know brother.
    I owe you two for a few acts of kindness that brought smiles and good times in my household. I never forget either.
    You two gave generously in the last campaign having to deal with two failed gofundme attempts, right along with me and still came through.

    You have serious integrity and character. I appreciate all you do.

    To alll....


    I do not mean this in a rude way at all:

    The donation payment methods are what they are for a specific reason. Some I can't discuss, but I can say she does not have a bank account.

    I also am not going to expect this lady to go to a bank or walmart or anywhere else to recieve funds.

    If there are any doubts in my integrity you can ask German89 if I delivered on my word or anyone who participated in that fundraiser.

    The payment terms will not change.
    Check, money order, bitcoin, etc are not an option.

    If this is to much to ask then ok... Don't.

    Like I said before this is my personal name and reputation on the line. I would die before I didnt follow through.

    I also went by Gavins memorial and picked up som litter just now.

    Why haven't you set up a Just Giving Page and only accepted cash in mail? Seems suspicious.

    I know it seems that was just now being introduced to the community. We have tried going through similar channels before and it didn't work out. I forget exactly why but people kept donating and then they would be refunded, this happened multiple times. So now we are just circumventing possible issues. Obs is well know around here as a stand-up guy otherwise I would be saying same thing and admin would not have approved it. It is completely optional. Stick around a while, you'll see, it's a good community. Sketchy people don't last long around here.

    Read the posts.
    I have done this here before.
    Go fund me reserves the right to cancel any and all fundraisers without reason if it involves any attachments to drugs, prostitution, steroids etc..

    When linked to this site it apparently threw a red flag. I fought this for about 100hrd last christmas.

    The simple fact is this ain't facebook.
    I am not spending days fighting a third party host to no avail when it can be done directly.

    Like I said before the reciept of funds by debbie will be recorded on video. This is no different from go fund me or any host like that except for the fact that 100% goes to her.

    Just curious how a thurd party host makes it less suspicious? A couple was just outed for raising $40 k for a homeless man on gofundme and keeping the money.

    I have been here years and have proven my integrity. Aside from this admin has my full name and address if I don't deliver to post to the public and Almostgone is a trustee accountant to verify every cent for donators upon request.

    Gofundme says it straight up.
    Justgiving says it may not be used for anything "unlawful".

    They both can terminate at any time at their discretion, witjout reason given.

    I am not about to watch 8 or ten people donate again and have to wait a week on their processing to return funds. Been there done that.

    I do what works.

    Leres, you need to back up and check your attitude. *Admin* has approved this and other fundraisers that this man has facilitated. If you have an issue, feel free to PM me

    Where do you get off joining a site (probably with the sole intent of finding a source of substances that are probably illegal where you live) just to immediately go and accuse one of the top members of this forum of being shady? Fuck all the way off.
