TNT Ebay geocoin auction fund

Recommended Posts

We are still willing to put in a one or two of our poker coins from the group project. I just don't think I will be able to handle putting them up on ebay since I have not had an acct. with them in a long time and we really can't aford the fees? If someone is willing to put them up then I will ship a coin or two to them if we get a good amount of the poker coins together.

That is very nice thing for you to do. I'm sure the Lackey coin will really help out.

 

For anyone interested in donating their jellies I'm going to collect them until the 10th of Jan and then list the auction for the group of jellies collected. If you want your jellies included in the group just email me and I will send you my address.

I'm willing to match that Nora ... would you have time to email all the participants and see if they wish to donate also please? I am a bit pushed for time today.

 

Let's see if we can get a group of poker chips together for auction folks!

We are doing really good at collecting the geo jellies so far we have about 10 flavors that people have generously offered up to the group auction. Once again I will be collecting these until the 10th of Jan and then the Auction will be posted. Thank You to everyone who is donating.

There were some issues with the Delft Blue Klomp sale the other day, I contacted them to see if my purchase actually went through and when to expect the coins to be mailed. If and when they get here I will put one up for auction to help out.

 

Still keeping you and your family in our thoughts

I will also add one of my party poker coin and a personal geocoin and some random ones that are for sale any more to help out. Contact me again with the shipping information and I will get them sent out as soon as possible.

 

Heal fast! Our prayers are on their way and will continue.

That makes 6 so far out of the 15 I sent emails to plus us which makes 7. I think there were 19 groups participating? Tank and Tracy said that 2 were going out as gifts but I don't know who to? Some people may be on vacation out of town right now so we may not get a response out of everyone I sent emails to til they get back. I don't know when we should try to get these on ebay but if we could get someone to volunteer to have these coins sent to them and put them on ebay for us it will be greatly appreciated. We no longer have an ebay acct. and can't really afford the fees. Thank you to everyone who has said they would donate a coin(s) toward the cause so far.

Nora: Just curious-are you counting TnT and Quick-at-em (their son) in the 15 coin count? They had coins made too, but I'm sure we wouldn't be asking them to donate their coins as well. Just need to be careful that we don't falsely advertise as a "full set"...

 

Thanks again for organizing this and if you need help with the Ebay auction we would be happy to do the listing. I know Tank and Tracy really appreciate all the love and support they have received from this wonderful geocaching community!

The Cache Maine team and I enjoyed being together this afternoon. We discussed this fund raiser. CMT is planning on sending a donation so I got out my coin box and added one too.

 

A full set (3 coins) of the Mini Seashell coins with the jeweled stone on the inside of the shell. CM will add my donation to their shipment (along with my SI).

 

Thank you for allowing the community to participate!

Has there been any up dates on his condition?

I haven't been able to reach Tracy today (she can't always have her phone on), but yesterday Tank was responsive to touch, light and sound. He is still unconscious, but is breathing above the respirator which is also good. He is still in very serious condition and there is no way to predict the outcome, only time will tell. Please keep those prayers going!

OK, a little mouse with a huge heart whispered in my ear today that my desire to donate my donated Mickey Diver coin to Tank and Tracy is fine! I have already had contact with WI Robin about selling the 2006 Lackey, maybe you'd also be able to list this one on ebay?

 

I'll be sending you an email Robin.

 

Let's bid often and generously on these and ALL other coins, every little bit will help!

WoW - That's incredible!! What a generous community we have. I am glad to help by listing any coins on E-Bay. There will be some others because some of the people sending me nerds asked if they could donate other coins as well.

 

So far I have about 20 nerds coming, I hope to collect them all. I am quite willing to trade to get ones that I need to complete the set, no problems there.

 

So far the WI_Robin coin is up to $76. Way to go!! I know this won't go far in paying hospital bills, but the everyday stuff doesn't go away because someone gets sick. If these donations pay for gas, babysitters, lunch at the hospital - or just an hour or two away from reality; that's a good thing too. I hope everyone has a safe, happy and healthy holiday season.

We have 10 people out of the 19 sets sent out that are willing to donate. If we get a TNT coin plus the 6 we have not heard from yet plus the other two whom I know will be getting theirs for Christmas( I know of one who will be asked once they receive them), only then can we claim a whole set but as it stands now we have an almost complete set which I still think could get a good price but we may have to wait til after Christmas to put these up for auction since some people may be away for the Holidays. My suggestion is to wait til after the New Year to see if anyone else is willing to participate. In the meantime we could send these coins to whomever is willing to put them on the auction.

 

ShmilyNME and SolCalGeocoins you both mentioned that you would be willing to put these on auction. Which one of you would like to have the coins sent to you?

 

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to send their coins so far. Hopefully we can help bring a little releif to a great family.

 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I sent an e-mail to SolCalGeocoins to see if they would like to handle all the auctions or if they would like for me to handle the Poker Coins and a few misc coins that Horsegeeks is sending to me. For now I would say send your misc coins to them and hold onto your Poker Coins until we decide how to handle those. We'll post back here ASAP.

 

I've got those auctions bookmarked and will definitely be doing some bidding while I'm off for the holidays!

First thing I want to say is Wow everyone is really helping out and I know Tank and Tracy apperciate it. Now for an update on the geojellies right now we have over 20 flavors being donated to the group auction. These flavors are from all three versions made so it is going to be a great group of coins. The auction will go up on the 10th of Jan. this way everyone has time to get the coins to me so I can take pictures and write down all the flavors in the group. So keep a look out for the auction starting on the 10th of Jan. Last thing I have to say is MERRY CHRISTMAS to everyone and I hope santa brings everyone what they are wishing for.

My thoughts and prayers are with you Tony as well as your family. If anyone would like to I started a candle group where you can light a candle for Tony. Anyone can light one and it'll burn for 48 hours. If for some reason you can't find the group you can do a search on that site and look for the group I named TANK.

Tracy,

 

On behalf of the membership of Geocachers 4 Christ, You and your family are in our hearts and minds. While I've never met you, the very fact of having so many people talk of you in such a warm way tells me everything I need to know of the two of you.

 

I pray that the Lord keep you and Tony and your Children in His hands. I pray that He will breath a spirit of Peace into your heart and mind. In times like these its always difficult to deal with things and we all need a sence of His Hands holding us.

 

I also Pray that the Lord will heal Tony. I do believe in the healing power of prayer and have seen prayer lead to supernatural healings that Doctors cannot explain.

 

I pray that through this Holy Season, you and yours will remember to look towards Jesus for your support. This season is set aside for us to remember Him and what He has done for us.

 

Blessings,

 

 

Jason

I made some bids and happy to pay shipping on top as that way more money goes into the fund!
