Hey peeps. Well, apparently the story you get from Paypal depends on the department you talk to and the person on the other end of the line. We were initially told that, as long as we didnt mention the word "raffle" in the benefit contest for Chad, we would be fine. They expressed their desire for Chad to get the help we were offering and seemed eager to make it work. Now Paypal is telling us we need to just shut it down. There can't be any prizes involved, nothing. So thanks, Paypal! Great public relations-minded business model you have there. Cudos!

That being said, Chad will be contacting each person who made a donation and explaining the situation. It's the least he/we can do for all the confusion. In the meantime, this whole operation has been shut down thanks to the kind folks at Paypal.

Again, sorry for this mess.




:icontimtownsend: Tim Townsend  has got a great raffle going on to win some artwork by him and Chris Bachalo (Here's a… to his journal).

When Chad mentioned that Tim had offered to donate some pages to help raise him some money, I was thrilled. Although if I'm being honest, I was a little bit worried. Many people have promised Chad many things....very few have actually delivered. Some have gone as far as to out right steal from him (you dirty mother fuckers!). When I saw that Tim came through, I was ecstatic. Big T your the man!

I'll let Chad :iconchadfuller: tell the rest of the tale:

Tim started this raffle to help me with my current fight with cancer. Back in March when I announced that I had a Sarcoma cancer, a form of Cancer that Tim's good friend Michael Turner fought with, Tim reached out to me and has given me advice and support in my battle. The type of cancer I have is rare and is located in my leg, due to it's ability to kill, I made the difficult choice to have my leg amputated. This increases my survival chances dramatically.

I'm currently re-learning to walk again with the aid of a prosthetic leg. It's different, but I'm not letting it slow me down. I'm going to keep at it till I'm walking again.

Tim started this raffle help me with some of my medical expenses. I'm in a rough patch right now and Tim being the good friend he is has taken the time to create this raffle in my support. Heres the [link] to his journal.

Tim is raffling off two pages of original art work with pencils by Chris Bachalo and inks by him from the recent X-MEN: Curse of the Mutants: STORM and GAMBIT #1. Each page is done on 11 x 17" Marvel art board and is 100% original hand-rendered pencils and inks, no blue lines. Retail value on the pair of pages is roughly around $500. Each raffle entry will cost $10 and each person can enter as many times as they like. The raffle will last 2 weeks.

Make sure you stop by and let Tim know what an amazing guy he is. His friendship and support has made a difference for me. Feel free to contact me at my e-mail address if you have any questions, or note me.

Thanx for the support
- a lot of love-
