If the chipin thing is no longer valid, then the link should be taken down. I just donated to it *before* reading to the end of this thread. So.. what's the deal?

Hey Forest, I just refunded your money. The chipin is still active for those wishing to donate. John knows about the fund and has endorsed it on Rock and Ice. Sorry for the confusion.

Thank you, Krista. Could you post a link to the R&I bit? I'll redonate (and post it to my FB.)

I'm in for $25. Least I can do after all the joy (and safety!) his work has given me.

Heal up quick, Largo!

The chipin is legit, I saw it from the periscope in my submarine ......

Hey Dean....jsut read the first post you put up, noticed my name. Fer sure I'll be all in to help out, just give me the word and I'll start the wheels movin'. Timing may be a bit tricky on my end, I might be back in Colorado Springs for a spell end of April, beginning of May. Either Way I can do whatever needs to be done. We'll talk.

Thanks Forest, and thank you for your donation. I defiantly could have done things a little differently and wish I would have. It was the best I could do at the time. I understand that people have been scammed before so it makes sense that you make sure your money is going where you intend it to go. My intention was to give John a little cushion for when he is released from the hospital so he can concentrate on his rehab and not be so overwhelmed with the bills and such that have racked up. So thanks everyone for your contributions and thanks to everyone for keeping it on the up and up so that we make sure these funds in the future are well intended. I will keep the chipin up until John decides to end it. I look forward to a huge party in the future that John can participate in and enjoy with the community that has shown lots of love in their own way, you guys are awesome!

You definitely were a bit defiant. ;-)

Cheers for taking the initiative to help, and for weathering the Supertopo Stormô (which was actually pretty tame, IMKSHO).

I'm glad you understand the initial skepticism - the Bachar fiasco was (and still is) completely unconscionable,
and there were even a bunch of people who repeatedly chimed in vouching for Tim Greene.

Now let's all have a big group hug.

So I posted a link to the chipin for John on Rockreations Facebook page after they posted John's thank you to them. The link has now been removed. Whats up with that? Why wouldn't they want to help out?

They do it for John, they'd have to do it for every climber that got an oweeee and cried "help". They could also perceive some liability issues that reinforces the fact John got hurt badly there.
Just my thoughts,

I understand the liability aspect but, if it isn't a fund that they started then really whats the big deal?

Friends,

I am Jeff Leads athlete manager for prAna. Please count us in, to donate products from prana, however the group see fit. In addition the Winter Trade Show is next month and I'll be attending as usual. If there is any interest in doing something there for John, I would be more than happy to co-ordinate or be a point of contact for any help there. Hell, I would even go around and ask for donations or products, or...

just trying to help a friend in need.

Dean, can I get a recap on what is needed to get this fund rasier up and going? I'm a bit lost in the BS. I am available to help with whatever is needed, anytime.
Thanks, TY
