^^^ Thank you, thank you for giving GiveSendGo the recognition and for banishing the leftist crowdfunding from site forever. I despise it, every time its name popped up.

Glad to hear about this GiveSendGo as I never heard of it before. The other sucks and is used way too much all over and I will never give to it.

The problem is that the term "GoFundMe" has entered our cultural lexicon as a generic trademark in the same way as Kleenex or Band-Aid.

The proper term is "crowdfunding" but unfortunately, everyone uses "GoFundMe".

Once again, if you put this term in your post (or even quote this post of mine, with "GoFundMe" contained in the quote), your post will not reach the open forum but instead will get sent to a queue.

I’ve mentioned it before: I refuse to use GoFrackMe. Period. Regardless of the campaign or beneficiaries.

I learned last week not to mention that place on this forum.
As far as crowdfunding sites, don’t they get a cut?
The lawyers for the Marine in NY have set up some site for his expenses. I’m more inclined to get a cashiers check and send it to them.

A well deserved reprimand. I had forgotten what that site had done to the Canadian truckers.

My bad.

I just happened on this thread so had to get caught up quickly. Congrats on being home, finally.

This read was another reaffirmation that I keep my range bag in the basement and my travel bag up two flights away. So easy to end up here due to cultural differences in what's ok.

Hey everyone. I have been going back and forth with Para trying to come up with a good karma for all who participated in this Free Dave thread. I really wanted to come up with some original prizes but ultimately concluded it would be best to give an Amazon gift card and let you purchase something that you really want. I used the karma picker to pick 5 posters who will each receive a $250 gift card. I thank you all for the support, the kind words, the humor, the concern, all of it. Just reading back through this read makes me smile. So without further ado, the winners are

1. irreverent
2. furlough
3. redstone
4. HRK
5. johnny3eagles

I will reach out to you by email if you have one posted or if you see your name here, reach out to me and I will get it sent out to you.

A special thanks to you Para for starting this thread when I reached out to you. It truly helped and really cements what everyone already knows about this place.

On a layover in the Netherlands and I get an email about a karma gift card.

Incredibly generous Dave but the big prize is you home and safe!
