Hey everybody,
Many of us are familiar with, or have the good fortune to be friends of longtime member, Pat In The Hat. To me, he is the brother I never had, and when he hurts-I hurt. There has been a lot of pain the last few years. I believe the phrase "salt of the earth" was coined for Patrick, and a better/bigger heart you'll never find. Now, quite simply-he needs US. The link I post will explain all, but as your friend-I am holding my hat in my hand and begging you to help a brother. His pride took an incredible hit, having to reach out-and I asked permission to even post this, because I know how he is of the blood-that you do for others and never ask for help for oneself. I ask, because we of the SKMB leave no one behind...please help as you can-and those of you on Facebook, please re-post the hell out of this....for my friend, I thank you......

...thank you ALL....also, if you can Tweet, carrier pigeon-whatever....please help me get the word out....I have offered Pat a place for him and the cantankerous cats to live this Winter(with me), but he wants to stand on his own......I don't want him in a step-van in a damn campground....
I do not do FB, but have already emailed some close friends up north and provided the link and ask to spread the word.

...and the fair maidens that are our Mods...can you see that this stays "bumped up" please?...pretty please???.....
We haven't actually had any discussion about board policy etc, but I'm hoping as this really is rather an exceptional case...

I seriously don't want to say too much right now, as Marsha isn't due back to work until tomorrow and I don't want to be presuming anything.

...I understand Flake, and I'm not asking for special treatment...Marsha had foreknowledge of this and allowed that I could post it where I did...if anything has changed, please do what is needed...I just want to help Pat.....it's that simple and yet that important....

Ah well, I see absolutely no problem with pinning the thread then. (Left-hand, right-hand... :facepalm: :rofl: )

And on a personal note, I support the heck out of this.

Considering the number of us who've posted "Done" I say we are a good representative example of the selfless generosity of all humble citizens around the globe.
And what I love about the Go Fund Me way of helping, is that I don't have to physically go to my bank and change currency. (which I've had to do in the past for other things.)
Also... it is something I can come back and donate to again if and when I can give more.
