Brothers and sisters of GIM,

I just had a real quick chat with Scorpio and thought it would be a good idea if we started up a collection fund for TAEZZAR and family.

Scorpio is in agreement and is going to sticky this thread.
He'll get the PayPal link up & running and each of us can drop in whatever we can afford to part with.
He'll see to it that the funds get forwarded to TAEZZAR.
In addition, you can PM Scorpio with the amount so that he can match things up.

2020 has been a crazy year for all of us and I know that each of us is fighting our own battle(s) each and every day.
But there can be no denying that one of our brothers is in a place of great need right now.
Let's please do what we can to help ease that need if even for just a moment.

Thanks to each and every one of y'all.
WE are what makes this place the best site on the web.

Isn't it time to pony up for the site also? Why not do both as the same time?

No, nothing for the site,
that isn't until next year,

this is only about Taezz, or I take it down,

don't want any dough from gim'ers for the site

I am in on this,

paypal links are up for your use,

I am only the facillitator, as it was all
JayDubya's idea

Is the bird going to share with @TAEZZAR or blow it all on hens and bird seed?

I just attempted 2x to donate and both times got an error message. Is it me, or is there something wrong with the link this morning?

I just checked the link, and no issues on this end that I know of,

but, it is a paypal link, so if trying to enter a cc without going thru paypal, it doesn't work.

we are not set up to take cc's direct

I don't do PP so mine is being sent from a debit card. I got an Error Message last night. Hit the SEND again after a minute and the next screen sent me to sign-up for PP. Which I exited out of.
I guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow for my financial inst. to open up to check for the withdraw.

I know this this a primitive, archaic method but can you accept Checks if we have to go that way SCORP. ?

I do not know how to do PayPal, but the linked screen has a simple click to use your credit card. Worked for me.

I've done this before. The site does not ask if it is CREDIT or DEBIT and it has worked in the past with Ebay purchases that ran through PP. Jus' Sayin'

I tried using Credit with no success.
I tried it too but no luck. I had to go in through PayPal and pay with my cc there.

PayPal must have it rigged to guarantee they get their cut.

Here is the current total,

No, the donations won't be matched up in public,
There will be no public reconciliation other than what comes in goes to Taezz

we will let it run for a week, then close it and get the dough off to Taezz,

it doesn't help him the same 6 mos from now

I didn't have any issues on the 12th 10:55PM....everything worked fine. But on the 13th I did a different donation to Mozilla. All hell broke loose and ended up having to change my password.

CC worked fine for me today. My small contribution will hopefully contribute to TAEZZAR's immediate needs and a meaningful intermediate-term security until they can get back on their feet and some semblance of normalcy. Glad to contribute to the effort.

What I like about this and the membership is "This is cash on the barrel head". Not a promise to pay like the Telethons and Radiothons for donations.
Legit number and only going to go up.
BRAVO Ya'll.
