C L O S E D : WE HAVE MET OUR GOAL :) ... Michael Tracey Desperately Needs Our Help!

by BIG Mike Banned

Howdy Folks,

I'm going to cut right to the chase and then I'll give you a little background, but let's start with this - Michael Tracey, who is one of the really long time members of the WF (from way back when posts were chiseled in stone) , is in a serious financial bind and needs our help.


WHAT IS THE ROOT PROBLEM?

For more than a year now, Michael has been in and out of hospital with a very serious health problem. The costs of his medical care were staggering, and he has watched as all of his family's savings and other resources dwindled away as they coped with the financial burden of his medical problems. Unfortunately, throughout this difficult time, Michael has not been able to work, so they have relied completely on his wife to keep them going to this point.

And just when they thought they were going to come out on top, the axe fell again, thanks to a lot of red tape and other related issues, and instead they've hit rock bottom. But...and this is a big but - there's a light at the end of the tunnel for them, IF he and his wife can pull together $18K to $20K ASAP. This will allow them to pay some of the most pressing medical bills and will allow them to bring their home and property into legal code compliance, which they will then in turn sell to resolve the remainder of the financial difficulties.


JUST WHO IS HE ANYWAYS?

For those who don't know of him or know him well, he is a "Super Moderator" here and has been a moderator or admin for years at the old Snitz version of the Warrior Forum. But know this - for years, Michael has given of himself to help make the WF what it is - the best damned IM Forum on the net.

Back when I became a moderator in the old forum, Michael was first a mentor and then a friend to me and has remained so ever since. He's a good man, honest and caring, but like most people independent and self-reliant. It has taken a lot of courage for him to "Air his Business" as he put it, so he is setting aside his own sense of independence for the sake of his family's financial well being during this personal crisis.


WHY I'M ASKING YOU TO HELP?

Given the current state of the world economy, Michael's needs are not surprising. We are all struggling in one form or another with the fallout from the downturn in the markets, gas prices and the concerns over a recession. I know that. You know that. And believe me...Michael knows that especially well.

In times of trouble, people first turn to friends and family and failing that, look to the community for support. So on behalf of Michael, I'm turning to our community here in the Warrior Forum to ask you personally to step up to the bar and reach out to Michael and his family.

I'm asking you to help a man who, over the years, has helped so many members of this community himself. He's helped with his time, he's helped with his money and most of all, he's helped so many others start down the right path through his efforts here in the WF.

I cannot stand by and watch a good man be kept down - especially one who has given so much of himself without ever having asked for anything in return. So I'm asking you to help shoulder a small part of Michael's burden as any caring member of a community would do.


HOW CAN YOU HELP?

The first, best way to help Michael is to make a cash donation in whatever amount you feel you can reasonably afford without putting yourself in a bind. It is not a contest folks - believe me when I say that a $5 donation is every bit as important as a $1K donation. Follow your heart on this one...good karma will be yours for doing so





If you wish to remain anonymous, please state so in the note section when making your donation. Otherwise, I will assume that is OK for me to publish your name as a donor.

I'm also in the process of pulling together a WSO with the proceeds to also be donated to Michael. Given that, if you have a product or service you would like to contribute a few copies of, please send me an email at Michalis.kotzakolios@gmail.com with all of the details, including how we can best effect delivery to those buying.

Please include your:

1.Name, Warrior ID and email address
2.The Product Name
3.A brief (one paragraph) description
4.A link to your sales page
5.Suggested WSO Price
6.Maximum quantity being donated
7.Preferred Delivery Method

If you have an active list, let them know what you're doing and again when the WSO launches. Not only will they find some great discounts on many products (including your own), but they'll be a part of something really good in these troubled times!


JUST SO YOU KNOW...

Our Esteemed Monkey God Allen has been brought into the loop on this and has given the OK to promote this in the main discussion area and as a WSO. He will also be in the background helping out through driving traffic to it among other things.

Lastly, I just want to say again to everyone again that Michael is one of our own. Personally, I think there is no greater satisfaction than being able to be there for someone you know when the chips are down. So as a member of the Warrior Community, please join me in helping him to clear this final hurdle!

    Mike, I've known Michael has been ill for some time when he PM'd me a while
    ago about something or another. I think it was a WSO.

    I will certainly do what I can.

    Michael, if you're reading this, I wish you a speedy recovery and pray that
    all this is just a bad memory very soon.

    Thanks for letting us know Mike.

      Mike, I am actually in tears right now. Michael has been so kind to me and
      then my wife comes home and tells me a woman she worked with, 42 years
      old, died from a heart attack. She had a 5 and 8 year old sons.

      There is way too much sadness in this world and some days it's more than
      I can handle.

      If this forum is as great and giving as I know it is, Michael will have that
      20K by tomorrow at this time.

      Bet on it.

        I'm close to it myself Steven - in the past hour we've received more than $3K in donations and they're literally pouring in.

        People talk about social networking, communities, and being part of something...but I'm here to tell you that the Warrior Forum is the real deal when it comes to "Community".

        Folks here just never cease to amaze me with their willingness to help their fellow Warriors.

          Oorah! The people are what make this forum great, and Michael is one of the best.
          edit: Hope you make it back 100% soon!

          From the looks of things, it won't be long!

          Wow. I think that's the first time I've used two exclamation points in one posting.

          And thanks for taking the lead here, Mike. You rock, brother.

    wish I can help but I am a total newbie who himself is struggling to make a life out of the internet. I just hope you see your illness as a challenge, illness are just a setback for a set up for a comeback. I am sure you will over come this period and become a better person at the end. Keep the faith and remember you can't prevent the bird from flying over your head but you can prevent it from building it next on your head.

      I don't know Michael and in fact, even BIG Mike much but if he has done so much for the WF, I would be privileged to be of any help to him. I don't have much cash right now, but I am planning for a WSO within the next 2 days. This would be my first income from IM and I would gladly contribute 50% of the proceedings from it to Michael's cause.

      Michael, if you are reading this thread...we are all with you!

    This is limited, so grab your copy in the next 30 minutes or so and I will email the zip file to you!

    Daniel - on behalf of Michael and the other members, I want to thank you for your donation and willingness to help a fellow Warrior!

    Hey Mike, would it work if I donated some time? - I charge $97 per press release - if anyone wants to hire me to write a press release, but pay the money to Michael Tracey, I'll do it. And I will throw in free submission to 20 free press release sites. Okay, actually I will do that for two press releases. I can have the press release written and submitted within a day. I was a newspaper reporter for 17 years, so I do know my way around press releases.

      Hey Big Mike

      I dont have my own product but I do have a huge list of bonuses you could give away with the WSO?

      Struggling with illness is very difficult - I know as I am dealing with major issues at the moment aswell.

      Micheal - dont let it get you down (easier said than done)
      try to stay strong and when you are having a bad day - know that the new day will bring you new hope!
      And if yesterday was crap - today can still be great.

      I will say a prayer for you!

      It will surely make you feel better and totally loved and appreciated when you read this thread.

      We are all rootin' for ya!

      Another one who does not know Michael but again, I do know how fantastic this forum and the people in it is and the WF has helped me so much too that I would just love to help and have sent a small amount (coming from Sue Marshall). I also know what it is like to be in the position of losing your home, in fact I did lose my home a couple of years ago.

      I've only been coming to the Warrior Forum for a few months or so, so I don't really know Michael. But if I can be a small part of helping someone so in need (especially since I gain so much from the community that embraces him), I'm in.

      p.s. I'm creating my first product - a guitar instructional program for lead guitarists. If anyone is a guitarist interested in modal and pitch axis improv, you can have my course (a 12 month, $19.95/month fixed term membership) for a donation to Michael of $40 or more.

        I have read this whole thread and even though I do not generally post here, I have learned a lot here at the forum.

        First of all I would like to say how heartening it is to see a response such as this, not only from people who know Michael Tracey , but also from people who do not know him.

        For myself, I have only just met him through this thread and also, because I have just started looking at his recipes in the ebook that I just got at www-dot-africhef-dot-com(I have so few posts that I cannot post the link!)
        Being a keen cook of spicy foods we will surely be enjoying them!

        Thank you Michael and to the Warrior Forum for making me aware of this.
        I have tweeted Michael's site and will blog about it too...
        Just now working with a cooking author as well...
        Curious!

        I will also send a donation.

        This brings me to deeper thoughts,

        Recently it seems that on the world stage things have gotten much more complicated than ever, so much so, that a great many of us are having to deal with huge difficulties on our own personal stages.

        At the moment it is certainly the case for me and for very many of my friends and acquaintances.

        This thread is about giving and receiving which I think is wonderful. I also think that in the wider world giving and receiving needs more attention.

        It is always very humbling to receive especially when one's back is against the wall.
        I know from experience.
        Sometimes it is very hard to ask for help when it comes down to asking for the cash that can resolve problems.
        Sadly, at those times, one can feel quite 'non-valid' as a person in the rest of the world.
        I have had to care for a dear love wasting away and dying from Lou Gehrig's disease, while the money, and also my ability to have the time to work wasted away.
        I feel that I may have an idea of what Michael and his family are living through.

        I wish them all strength.

        Recently I have come across a gifting and receiving network that works over the web. I have begun a journey with it and whereas I am somewhat reticent to mention it here I do believe that it can help huge numbers of people.

        If Michael or anybody else would like to know about it, please DM me directly.
        I will be happy to explain it. It may be helpful.

        Before I close I would like to send good wishes to all on this thread and especially to Michael and family.

        I hope you are able to get on your feet as soon as possible!

        With All Kindness,

        George

        PS Just checked my snipurl. 13 clicks to africhef.com. I hope they all purchase!!

          Michael,

          All of our thoughts & good wishes are with you & your family at this challenging time.

          Know that all of the "seeds" you have sown all over the world, will start to grow & blossom very, very soon.

          It is obvious you have touched SO many lives with your work, help & advice over the years & this good work, will come back to you now when you need it most.

          Although I have just joined this community I am very heartened by the amount of generous offers of help & donations that have been made, many by people (myself included) who do not know of Michael, yet, but have heard of his good deeds from others. Whilst there is so much "lack" thinking in the world just now, it is good to be a part of such an Abundant community.

          We're rootin' for you Michael .....

          Thanks Mike.

          And of course I will be sending a donation.

          Michael, we have known each other quite a while of course.

          I just need you to get well and start telling people how great you think my eBooks are again.

          Seriously though, I will welcome the day when you are back to full health and all your financial worries are just a bad dream.

          For the Warriors who don't know, Michael and I are both on the same wavelength, at least I hope we still are.

          And that is why I can say.

          Dig deep for Michael please Warriors.

          If you don't I'll run buck naked down your street this week! And trust me that really is something you don't want.

          Take Care

      Donation going off now, but when's the deadline for a WSO product? Wouldn't mind doing up a special product for Michael if I have a few days (I'm so slammed right now). Michael was always good to me in WSO and I owe him something special.

      Please post a WSO deadline here. Thanks.

          Okay, stupid question but I'll try anything.

          Do you think putting a video on YouTube asking for donations for Michael
          will help? If so, I'll make the video. I just need some feedback from somebody
          who's really knowledgeable about this stuff.

          I think if we all go to Digg right away and bookmark it, it might generate a
          substantial amount of traffic from people who don't regularly come here but
          have done so in the past and still have a soft spot for this place.

          I don't know. Stupid idea?

          Please help me decide on this. If enough people with more brains than I
          have think this can work, I'll make the video right now.

      This is so noble. This is my second day at Warrior Forum and I'm already convinced that one of my decisions is to join Warrior Forum.
      I am working on my expired Credit card with paypal, as soon as it gets fixed I will send some donation. IN the mean time, I am spreading the word around via FB and Twitter.

      Also, I am an expert at rebranding contet, so if you need any PLR content to be made yours , please PM me- I can do it for you- so that I can even donate more for Michael Tracey. If we do strike a deal, I would like 50% to go to michael's paypal.

      Thanks and all the best to all of you.

        I don't know you, but going by what the others here have to say, you seem to be a wonderful person.

        I understand how you must feel now. Life is cruel at times and I wonder why good people suffer, but I guess that's God's way of testing them.

        This is what keeps me going - knowing that there's light after darkness.

        Wishing you a speedy recovery and all the happiness someone like you deserves.

      Michael, I'm pulling for you and your family. I've been through a catastrophic illness in my family, and I know how draining that can be day in and day out. Snatch those wonderful shining moments in between and hold on to them for dear life. They help.

      Godspeed to Michael and your Family. We are here for you.

      I send you our prayers and donation from our home to yours.

      I've been a Warrior for many years, albeit not a prolific poster, and I remember Michael from the old, old forum. I am proud to be a Warrior and there aren't enough words to express my feelings when I see the Warrior family pull together for another Warrior family member in times of trouble.

      My hopes, Michael and Family, are that we, as your extended Warrior family are able to be your "Bridge Over Troubled Water" financially and that our collective blessings attract the energy to make your body whole again.

      To the Greek in trouble. Hope that you get well soon and receive more help than is needed, you seem like a good bloke. If you need some additional help you can check out the volunteer ministers nearest you, who have been known to help people needing help.

          I don't think it was a "pitch page". It was a home page to Mike's company, probably just a PayPal setting. But yes, I did notice it...doubt it was intentional.

          Actually, I believe that's just Big Mike's default return page after a PP transaction. Since he was good enough to donate his PP for this benefit, let's not look at that page as a crass thing, but be thankful that we have the use of the PP account and that Big Mike was willing to go through the extra effort that it takes to use your PP account in this way.

      Big Mike,

      Donation sent!

      This forum was here for me when I needed help when I lost my job. The outpouring of ideas, free downloads, and offers of help to me during my time of need was phenominal !!

      I will also email you with a video product idea I was actually going to crank out today for myself, but I have decided to donate 100% of this to Michael. I am still having hard time as most of us in the start-up IM community are still facing. But you know what? There's ALWAYS SOMEONE who needs help more than you, regardless of how bad it is for yourself.

      The Bible says we should "give out of our own need to others" and I feel that your post was speaking to me directly.

      I will shoot you an email shortly with details.

    Hi everybody,

    In fact I am (still) a newbie here, I do not know Michael and I am sorry about his situation... Even so, this is a "pay it forward" time for me, so here is my humble donation (Confirmation number: 9F651787AA5750649) from MY FIRST ONLINE money ever made. And guess how did I make them? Being a member of WF...

    I would like to contribute to the WSO also, so here is what I have to offer:
    I specialize in vulnerability tests and assessment, especially (but not only) for the software products. If YOU plan to launch a new product, being it a software application or just a "simple" info product web site, you can get my evaluation and RECOMMENDATIONS once you have the setup ready in place.
    Why would you need this? Well, it may be the "thin red line" between having hundreds of sales and tens of thousands of leechers...
    For this WSO only, I will test 3 software applications (a $500+ value for only 97 US$ each, ) and two websites (a $350+ value for only 47US$ each). No upfront payment is required!

    I will try to detail my offer through email.

    At last, but not the least, I keep my fingers crossed for you, Michael!

    I haven't been here on the forum for quite awhile, but Bev let me know about this. I remember when Michael was sick earlier this year and was selling his cookbook. I wasn't able to help then, but I just sent the last few dollars in the pathetic PayPal account.

    My PayPal will be replenished here shortly within the next few days as I have some payments due in this week, so I'll come back and give some more as soon as it arrives.

    Michael Tracy is a great guy, a truly helpful and generous warrior. This forum is a community and communities help out their own.

      Maybe we should start a new thread with the digg we could easily get 100 digs within the hour which would easily get him the where he needs to be.

    I know exactly what Michael and his family are going through! I had to have neck surgery over a year ago, and wasn't able to get back to "normal" after that. I've been struggling with my health ever since, and am JUST NOW starting to snap out of it, praise the Lord!

    I don't have much, but I wanted to give what I can, so of course I have donated. May he and his family find peace and prosperity, and may the Lord double all that has been taken from them.

    Love,

    Hi Warriors,

    Just wanted to put in my contribution as well ...
    1) Have dugg
    2) And will be making a monetary donation shortly.

    For those reading this post and are considering assisting Michael Tracey, I'll just like to say this ...

    We came into this world naked and we WILL leave this world naked. Everything that we have (i.e. time, family, friends, you name it) are gifts that we have not earned. Every little bit helps and as the saying goes ... "It's the little streams that make the ocean".

    Blessings To All!

    P.S I"ll be praying as well.

      Just woke up...again.

      Already posted & donated what I could earlier this evening.

      I smacked my Tweety button for this as well just now, maybe it'll help as well.

      Parallels in the world are at some points a freaky mirror into one's own life. I can 120% vouch for the effect of health issues of any kind as I have the struggle daily.

      Here's a relevant motto I try to live by:

      "It only takes one random act of kindness a day to change the world--I aim for many."

      Once again, all my best for a quick recovery from our family to yours Michael.

    You never know how things go... the mental and emotional stress of illness can take its toll. Besides, once you lose momentum it can be hard to regain.

    Sounds like this is part of a major life lesson for Michael... I hope hes getting what he needs on all levels, and I will send prayers and a healing.

    Oh - I also sent a few bucks... its worth it to see this turn into a success!

    For those wondering why we should help an apparent stranger - it's already been said but it obviously needs saying again.

    Being a nice guy and helpful person and making money on the Internet doesn't make you immune to life's problems.

    I was making 6 figures online and still in massive debt and could easily have been in Michaels position if a serious health problem had occured.

    Making $10k a month (or whatever) online is not much different than what you can earn from a j.o.b - the issue is that whatever your income your lifestyle adapts to consume it.

    I remember when I was a teenager considering joining the Navy, I thought 400 pounds ($800) a month would be great with no debts and hardly any bills to pay. Well, needless to say - $400 a month 15 years later wouldn't have even come close to paying the interest on my debts, let alone the debts or normal expenses of living.

    You shouldn't be asking "if he's such a good guy and IMer, why does he need money" you should be looking at this community and seeing that he's obviously helped a lot of people and a lot of people want to help him back now that he's in need of some good friends.

    You can tell what a person is like by the people that are their friends.

    There are some VERY important lessons to take away from this situation, not least that the more you help others, the more others will help you, but that your focus on money should be more than just what you can make today - if life throws a spanner in your works, how long can you last on your current plan?

    What Mike said about every little counting really is true - most of us have our money tied-up in our lives and the things we want to do, so no-one will think less of you if your contribution is small - the fact that you care is helpful in itself, the medical community has barely scratched the surface of what is possible with the power of positive thought and sending prayers and good vibes to others.

    ANY money you can donate WILL make a difference.

    If it was YOU or someone you love, what would you want to happen?

    I love every person who has supported Michael in whatever way they can - and whatever you do, spread the word and when you help others, have them pay it forward and direct them back here.

    Warm regards,

    Andy

    Good Morning Everyone!

    I've just finished reading through the thread - the way the members here have pulled together is nothing less than awe inspiring!

    Quick update - we've raised a little over $8K in the past 10 hours since the thread started!

    For those inquiring about the WSO, I've not set a deadline, but from the rate the donations are coming in, we may not need to run one after all. Let's see what happens over the next two days...

    Meanwhile, if you have something to offer, post it here for members to get directly from you. You can let them purchase it through your site and donate the sale directly if you'd like.

    I've got well over 1,000 emails to sort through and will respond as quickly as possible. Be patient if you don't hear from me right away - I'm working my way through them.

    I want to especially thank those of you who are struggling with your own financial problems, yet still found it in your hearts to donate something. You folks are carrying the day

    Please...keep Digging, tweeting and otherwise spreading the word about Michael's plight. We may not be able to solve the world's economic problems, but by god, Warriors are going to make a difference here today!

      That's a great idea Mike.

      With that in mind I'd like to offer 5 Warriors the following special:

      AssociateSense Super Niche Pack Blog Theme Special For Michael Tracey & Family

      All proceeds from these 5 sales will go directly to Michael and his family.

      Hi Michael,

      As individual forum members we might not always agree on everything, but as a community there's one thing we do agree on - that's helping others as a high priority.

      It's great of you to be able to drop in and say thanks.

      Make sure that if there's anything else we can do for you or your family, even if it's to send some flowers to someone you care about to brighten their day - please don't hesitate to make sure we're aware.

      Love and support to you.

Is there any help in an internet marketing forum than having people directly involved in your making solid cash for the first time online? BigMike did it and Tracy advised me on my WSO title which did the magic, without which all my efforts should have been rubbish. Expect a contribution from me as a way of saying thank you. though i will support more with prayers.

    For more than a year now, Michael has been in and out of hospital with a very serious health problem. The costs of his medical care were staggering, and he has watched as all of his family's savings and other resources dwindled away as they coped with the financial burden of his medical problems. Unfortunately, throughout this difficult time, Michael has not been able to work, so they have relied completely on his wife to keep them going to this point.
    It is hard for us Aussies to appreciate the enormity of you guys in the US who have to cope with medical bills. We have Medicare and the sooner you push for it over there the better. Its like a compulsory insurance and it covers all medical and if you are not covered you get medical free.

    Since my time in the forum I am aware of Michael Tracy and his contribution and I will give what I can.

      It is great to see this community pull together when needed. This really reminds me of family. Your family can get on your nerves at times, but when you need them they are the first in line.

      Now, I want to do something to help out. I am about to release Tiger Software Builder Professional. This is a completely new version that allows ordinary people, with no programming experience, to make their own software. This is a high priced item at $997 per year license. I will also be offering a lower priced Express version that I will be selling resell rights as well as private label rights.

      I know a person who purchased resell rights to the first program that was nothing compared to this. They brought in $5k in the first couple of days. I personally made over $12k on the Warrior Forum alone selling the first version.

      People are hungry for this. VERY HUNGRY.

      To help out with Michaels unfortunate events, I would like to sell one Private Label rights and one Resell Rights to Tiger Software Builder Express (this is not the Professional version but a scaled down and far better than the original that made me and others a lot of money). All proceeds will go to Michael.

      Private Label and Resell rights to this will be expensive as well as extremely limited. I will only be selling 50 private labels and 50 resell rights to Tiger Software Builder Express.

      Get one Private Label for $4,000 normally $5,000.
      Get one Resell Rights for $2,000 normally $3,000.

      I am only selling one of each. First person who pays Big Mike gets them.
      You can see a quick demo of the Tiger Builder Professional here.

      Beta will last a couple of weeks. In that time, I will get all files ready for the private label version and have it to you in a couple of weeks.

      Pay Big Mike the money and send me a receipt so we can plan out your private label or resell rights version.

      Let's get this done so Michael can rest and get better.


      Cheers,

    Ok - I have known Michael for some time... He is a great guy and always picks up the phone and gives golden advice.....

    Hes been through a rough time. Here in SA - private healthcare can drain families to the point of getting a second mortgage and selling cars etc. He had to have it - the public health care system would have ensured his death.

    Small donation made - also wish it could be more...

      Small donation just sent from Toftware Oscar Toft.

      I noticed Michael and his posts when I joined this forum about a year ago. Then I noticed him getting sick some months ago.

      What's almost scary; One or two days before this thread was started, for no special reason, I suddenly struck me that I hadn't seen any more of his posts lately, and I started wondering how things had turned out for him.

      My best wishes for a speedy recovery!

      Whether you live in South Africa or the US, you really need to get in place a health care system more like the one we have in Norway (and I suppose Australia).

      To use myself as an example of how things can work out if everyone pulls together financing a good health care system:

      * For 18 years I suffered from a chronic colon disease. This, amongst other problems, had a very negative impact on my personal finances. I wouldn't have had a chance at all to pay for surgery in a privatized health care system.

      * October 2001 I had massive surgery, my colon was removed and I spent 12 days in hospital. As I understood it, 4 surgeons and 4-8 other persons took part during the surgery that went on for maybe 5-6 hours. Not a cheap project at all.

      * January 2002 I had some folllow up surgery of a less complicated kind. This time I think I stayed in hospital for 8 days.

      * For all this I paid nothing!

      Although I think the US may have some of the most forefront medical institutions and experts, I've no doubt the norwegian health care model is far superior to the US model.

      Just the thoughts of a norwegian now that the US population is about to chose their course forward for the next 4 years.

    It is really wonderful how Warriors come together to support one of their own.

    I don't know Michael personally, but I respect him for the contributions I've seen from him since I started here in 2004. Nobody is promised tomorrow and if you're healthy and in a position to give, you should be thankful and do so.

    Best wishes to Michael for a speedy recovery.

      I've never felt more proud or more privileged to be a small part of this precious little corner of the internet that is The Warrior Forum.

      Warrior members are truly special.

      Hey Big Mike,

      Donation just made.....Thanks for giving us a chance to give.....

      Michael, I pray for your healing and for help with these financial
      burdens....

      As a local South African....Let me know if there is anything
      I can do for you.....I'll PM you...

      Just a few things come to mind:

      "It's more blessed to give than to receive"
      You Warriors are an awesome bunch, I pray that you are all blessed
      out of your socks....

      "A trouble shared, is a trouble halved"
      Well done to you Michael for sharing. I know, that as a man,
      it's difficult for us to bear our souls.....you've given all
      of us an opportunity to support you....

      Keep your spirits up, keep your joy, look for things that you
      can be thankful for, express gratitude daily....

      I know how difficult this can be....but persevere...

      Put your trust in God....

      Warriors, thanks for allowing me to be part of this awesome community...I
      feel incredibly humbled by your outpouring of love and resources....

      Regards

    You can count on the Warriors, everyone from the well established to the newbies with under 10 posts (who haven't even heard about you) are doing their bit.

    With this positive attitude you can rest assured everything is taken care of and everything will be back to normal in no time.

      Hey guys,

      We are 100,515 members strong here in this forum.

      Just think if everyone here just gave a $1 or $2. Do the
      multiplication on that. You do not have to think big here
      to make this happen, because we have such a large number
      of members.

      Those of you running WSO's. How about if you donated
      1 sale a day for the next 2 days. That could easily bring
      in another $3-5$.

      Let's make this happen warrior forum. It's already a better
      day for me knowing I could help make a difference.
