Oh lord.It’s been one month since this thread was started and we’ve made some pretty decent progress ever since then. Granted, a large percentage of the funds raised were from the chips that made it here from the Netherlands as well as a large generous bid in one of the auctions made by @ImCrossland.
Wanted to see if we could somehow kickstart another round of auctions/sales to reach a new milestone in our fundraising.
Poppin, I know you're reading this and I understand you've landed yourself in a difficult position however, you've got to put forth a better effort to bring this to an end. I was able to sell off chips that were originally promised and was able to raise a decent amount of money. Now what? Shortly after doing so, I discover that more chips were held back that could have helped us get closer to our goal. I'm putting myself in your shoes right now and if I had $20,000 in debt chasing me as a direct result of my own sham sales, I'd be scrambling to find immediate solutions even if they came at $100 at a time. With the exception of future efforts to raise funds, at this point I've done almost all I can to help the community make a recovery from this. I'll continue to push for more fundraising auctions and sales but the reality is, the ball is in your court now.
I've got a couple of racks of coin-in-center chips that have just been sitting on my shelf, and I don't have anything planned for them. I'm happy to contribute them to the cause. I'll try to get an auction up this weekend, and all proceeds can go to this.
Had a bunch happen this week and wana send something for this man.Little update and follow-up note. I’ve received donations to the dedicated account from several people. First and foremost, big thanks to those that are helping out.
Secondly, I’m overseas with my family for my brother’s wedding. I may not be able to provide as many updates and prompt responses to PM’s, but rest assured I’ll reply whenever I’m able to login.
Just a reminder for those wondering which email is being used to accept payments/donations, it’s noted in the original post for this thread. I’m noting it below for added reference.
