    I sent mine via your Paypal link Monday. Hope it helps. Arson: that's not just a fire; that's a fire with mean written all over it!

    Updated first post to include raffle prizes. Also I will likely be collecting longer as I have been out of touch with Russell for some time now... given his limited access its not surprising.

    Also we just hit $450! Thanks to all!

    Item amount
    $543.23 USD



    Its a done deal! I managed to get a hold of Russell and got the donations sent off. Everything is going as well as can be expected. The house will be replaced thanks to insurance and his card models (prized possesion) :) were stored in an out building. The donations will be a big help for the short term expenses and getting over the first humps of rebuilding.




    He wanted me to let anyone know that is due any models from purchases will be sent out in the next couple weeks.

    Here is the contact I got from him (with a few bits of info removed I didnt want to display on the net)
    Chris

    I finally got it.
    Thank you Chris!
    Things have been pretty rough.
    I still haven't even filed my taxes yet as all the paperwork is gone.
    Needles to say, you don't even get the Economic Stimulous Package if you don't file.
    Hopefully I shall have all the paperwork replaced soon.

    I don't have a cell phone anymore.
    I am going to try to get it replaced at the end of next week, after I get paid.
    Hopefully I will still be able to have the same number.




    I cried when I read your message.
    Give everyone at Zealot my best and tell anyone waiting for models from me that I will be mailing everything out on Wed the 28th, with extras, for waiting on me.

    Our house is being repaced and should be ready by the end of June.
    Thank God for Insurance and that I still have my models! 8v)
    I'm hoping to get a new computer when I get my taxes back but it will be a while as I am late filing.

    I'll try to stay in better touch and check my mail more often.

    Thanks again buddy!
    Russell
