    MATCHING GRANT
    is still on and for a very important cause! Please consider donating, especially in memoriam to those we have lost. Your donation is now doubled if you can contribute, even the cost of a morning coffee, every little bit helps! :)
    Seems we are also short on toy donations this year. If you have a toy gathering dust, or one that keeps asking you to send him/her/it on a 99-year sleep over (my fav Horvathian expression! :lol:) Please send a DM to James @TiredChildren .

    Let's save some lives (literally!), and remember.....

    :shock::shock::shock: !!!THE MATCHING GRANT IS ALMOST OVER!!! :shock::shock::shock:


    Please consider making a donation, no matter how large or how small. Yes folks, your donations are still doubled right now. Just got a message from James that the matching grant is coming to a close, so if you can, please dig in and contribute to a literally life-saving cause.

    Just to spice things up a bit, I sent a box of toys to James in the mail for the raffle. The photos haven't been posted on his IG page yet, but here's what's up for grabs....

    Some Buta of course!

    Standard size Goro!

    Mini Sutegon!

    And other toys....
    [​IMG]
    YES! It's a hand-painted Prancake, painted by Mr. Bwana Spoons himself! (huzza!!!)

    [​IMG]
    Rampage Toys Pigmon (yep, that's a pink balloon in the back!)

    [​IMG]
    Science Patrol Namazu/Fish

    There are two sets of other toys which I didn't have time to photograph. James will post the photos when he gets the box.
    There MUST be something here that you'd like to win? :razz::):dam:
    Please, if you can, please make a contribution to a worthy cause!

    ^^^ Woo-hoo so sweet, thank you for donating still more and such an amazing gift, @Mark K !!

    Come one Skullbrain, let's take advantage of the generous extension James has offered and push this fundraiser even further to its goal. Remember this is not about the toy raffle (though it is fantastic, thanks to the efforts of this community) but about reaching out and giving support to many people out there struggling whose lives we could help turn around through this amazing foundation. Please donate what you are able to, as every small amount is welcome.

    The fundraiser is in September every year, and specifically around September 10th for Suicide Prevention and Awareness Day. I think James will start collecting toy donations in August.

    Just got my donation in today. My family lost a close family friend to suicide recently. It’s been incredibly difficult, and hard to put into words. He’s the fourth person I know who lost their life to suicide.
    Thanks for doing this each year, James. I hope we can all help a lot of people.

    Just found out that artist and teacher Chris Durante (@chrisdurante58 ) aka "the teacher across the hall," took his life this Sunday. I used to chat with him between classes, I was supposed to take his Drawing II class next semester. The art community within our college is hurting.
    Please, please talk to your friends and family to see if they're okay. It matters.
