Agreed.

Michelle, it is an honor and my pleasure to be able to contribute. I'd love to make you a necklace with one of Ian's stoppers on it - please let me know. Susan, please pm me your address and I will send your necklace out to you.

I would LOVE that Sonya....however I was in such a bad way when Ian's gear was going bye-bye that I didn't save anything for myself. Thank for the offer. It's very sweet.

Any chance that someone who bought one of Ian's stoppers to help out could give it back to Michelle for a necklace?

Um...oops! It was Mark's idea - I thought he was suggesting it to me so I would take the hint and make one (sorry, Mark). So Michelle, pretend you never saw this part of the thread... ;)

Carry on, Mark!

Inspirational.

I'm in my mid-50s and continue to dare to dream. Ian had the audacity and courage to dream, and truly be alive for his life.

My mom had cancer three times, and chose to live as much as possible depite carrying that parasite in her body. As I get closer to the age of my mother's early demise, I look at each day as a gift.

WIsh I could give you such a gift.

I continue to be overwhelmed by the spirit and generosity of all of you. Not only is Mark selling gear at a good pace, but we STILL after 4 months have donations coming in on Fundrazr...people here who don't know Ian but have been moved by his story. I am sincerely blown away by the generosity and kindness being shown, and I know Michelle is too.

Mark what you are doing is a ton of work, once again major kudos to you.

Since we're still seeing action on the Fundrazr, I will post the link again for those of you who don't need gear but want to help Ian's family:

My wish for all of you is that the new year bring you an abundance of good health and great adventures!

Just logged the biggest sale yet (aside from Max buying a lot of big expensive gear) and there is still a bunch of good stuff yet to go.

Anyone need a brand new still in the bag lead rope?

A brand new Petzl Helmet?

A pair of brand new 5.10 approach shoes?

Cams?

Quickdraws?

Bump for a "Thanks Mark", stuff just arrived and I was surprised that it was brand new still in the wrapper. Bonus and extra thanks.

sofcookie, whats your address I'll send you some old sh#t, err, Chouinard wired stoppers. Your donation was appreciated by more than just the family. Good on you for jumping in and helping out.

opps, sorry, just saw that you'd emailed it to me Sonya. I'll rummage my basement and send some Chouinard wired nuts along to you next week.

Just sold a bunch of the old wired nuts and a batch to Sonya for jewelry and I'm waiting to hear back from a few other people about various bits.

The photos and list of what is available is a few pages back now. I can't edit the post any longer to move them up. Maybe I'll just repost them.

Mr. Hudon, the work you are going through for me & Trevor is so awesome!! And thanks to all you climbers out there buying Ian's gear. Just remember, with every item, you also get a little piece of heaven. Thank you. Love, Ian's wife.
