Bumped to the front page for obviously obvious reasons. - Travis
Continuing what was started in our earlier FanPost, here's a more detailed breakdown of how our effort to do something to reach out to the Rangers fans who were assaulted outside of Geno's Steaks after the Winter Classic last Monday.
The Plan: Currently, the consensus still leans toward getting jerseys and getting them autographed; but other suggestions were given such as tickets to attend another game. Please continue the discussion here regarding how everyone would like to see the final plan play out.
Where we are with the details: Thus far, we have a lead on how to get in contact with both of the victims (as yet unconfirmed, but plausible), and a means of getting any items we acquire signed.
How to contribute: This effort falls under PayPal's acceptable use policy as 'a group of people chipping in to buy someone a gift', so we need to use the process of Sending Money to a Friend. So if you have a PayPal account, click on send money, and then you would send it to my email address, which is DragonGirl0583 AT yahoo.com, the same as the email address in my BSH profile. If you don't have PayPal account and do not want to sign up for it; you can email me (same email address), and I can send you a request link, which will allow you to chip in without a log in.
Contribution deadline: I think a good goal for getting all the contributions submitted would be a week from today, Wednesday January 18th, so that we have time to get the logistics worked out. If you think I should adjust that, let me know, but it seems like a fair starting point.
I will provide a daily update to the total in the fund in the comments below, rather than updating the FanPost. Thank you so, so much to everyone who has already helped out, whether by assisting with the plan or by contributing.
