Default Fundraiser for Irish Convert (moved here 1 day for exposure)

Our brother has fallen on some tough times... this weekend I plan on digging out some Irish autographed items to donate to the cause. I will be auctioning off chances to win lots. Will work our details and logistics this weekend. Draws will take place via random number generator. Raffle tickets will likely be in $10 increments. 100% of proceeds will go to Irish Convert to do with what he wishes.

Most items will be signed photos (16x20) as I will have to pay to ship to winners.

If there is enough interest, I may throw in a big ticket item that will be sure to garner some interest.

Drop a line below if you think youíd be interested in participating. I know for sure I have items signed by Eifert, Rudolph, Bettis and Quinn that I will put up...

Stay tuned...

Thank you Rocketsan but a friend talked me into starting a Gofundme page. I didn't think of posting a link when I updated that post of mine.

Okay, sorry for delays...and sorry for the crappy pics, but dealing with a death in the family but I didn't want to let this go any longer. Ugh, they are showing up sideways and upside down, my apologies, but I don't have time to fix this today...

Here are seven great huge 16x20 signed Notre Dame pieces. I will do a random number generated draw which I will record so ya'll will know this in on the up and up. Donjuan and Trev follow me on Instagram. I will post the video there...

For every $10 you donate to the GFM directly, I will put in one entry. I will take you on your word that you donated, please PM me directly once you have made a donation...

These probably cost me about $500 over the years. I don't have the wall space - your gain.

https://www.gofundme.com/c5u2gb-star...r-from-scratch

I will let this go a week or so to generate some much needed funds for our fellow Domer. Help a brother out...

Here's what's included...sorry for poor photos, I'm swamped for time...sorry David, you deserve better...wish I had the time to sort these pics out...

Brady Quinn


Jarious Jackson


Kyle Rudolph


Tyler Eifert

Remember, donate directly to David's go fund me at the links above, then private message me with how many draw spots you are entitled to (one for every $10 donation).

Thanks for helping out someone in great need. We've done this before, we'll do it again...

Still digging out treasures I will add to this...

David- I hope all turns out well. I wish I were closer and Iíd try to help you find some work. I just dropped $100 in for you. I say that not to brag but in hopes others help. We donít hesitate throwing some cash in a Salvation Army bucket or a homeless personís cup so thereís no reason we canít help someone we know through the web.

Where do you live in Indiana and what skills do you have? I can think of who I might know.

God bless!

First time I have donated to someone via GoFundMe. Did not realize how easy they make it to help someone out.

300+ active users and just three or four helpers.

Disappointing...

Couple more days and we will wrap this up. I will input all the entries on a spreadsheet and then use random number generator to pick the winner.

Last chance to jump in and help a good cause and grab some great signed photos...

Regardless of whether you have reached out to me before, can you please send me a DM and remind me of how many chances you are entitled to please.

I have no baseball Saturday and will set up the draw then.

Everyone loves and trusts Faith, so I will be compiling a list of all contributors and sending it to him, he will use a random number generator to choose the winner.

Hoping to get this done tonight.

Got hired by Better World Books in Mishawaka, working inventory. I haven't done this kind of work since my thirties but I'll take it. Just a matter of getting back in the swing of things.
