Ok sports fans, here is the info if you wish to donate something to Clark Jacobs. There is an added benefit, The Friends Of Josh is going to feature a new section on their website specifically for fundraising for climbers in need. Clark is going to be their first.

While you're there, if you are feeling extra generous The Friends Of Josh can always use a shot in the arm as well. It's your call.

Clark is in good spirits and spent the afternoon on my job site with us on Friday.

He has a tough road ahead of him. Let's pull together and help him out.

Thanks,

Hey Robert,

Not sure if you're running the donation site, but for some reason it says I can not donate at this time.

Sorry, this event is not authorized for booking at this time.

Any ideas?

Link to site http://www.acteva.com/booking.cfm?bevaid=235327

See you soon, Dan

It should be up and running now. There was a short delay while the "approval" process completing.

Let me know if there is any other problems.

Thanks

Robert - This is all so great!

Hate to bother you about a small thing, but I would like to share the link to my Facebook site and other pages, but when I click the link to the DIRECT post about Clark, it fails to load properly.

The problem with having the general URL for FOJT is that Clark's post will bump down as new posts come up, which will make it difficult for people to navigate to as time goes on.

Maybe it is just my browser doing this. Anyone else?

I am sure FOJT has a lot to manage besides this task, but if they can correct whatever is causing the glitch, it would be very helpful in maximizing visibility for the cause.

Checking on it. Thanks for being patient, I'm a third party here.

Yes, the info for donating directly is on FOJT's main page.

rlf, I had heard via the grapevine that there was going to be a fundraising party this spring as usual. Was that just talk? lynnie

It works...

All you have to do is put in the amount then hit "ENTER" on your keyboard...




I think SOME are mistaking this, "Sorry, this event is not authorized for booking at this time.", to mean it's not working currently...

Thanks locker, good info! This is a pilot program. Stuff still needs to be ironed out.

Lynne, I had not heard this, so who knows!

Clark is a long time local climber/guide and all around good man. He's been battling cancer. He was in remission for quite a spell, then it came back with a vengeance.

The goal here is to get him a little cash to help with living expenses since he will be unable to work.

I know what this is like because my wife went through cancer and she was bed ridden and I had to take care of her. It made working nearly impossible. We were broke beyond words.

Thanks Robert for taking this on!

Today, Sue and I are giving Clark a Valero Gas card from donations given by fellow guides, our family members and Uprising Adventure Guides.
If anyone would like to contribute to this gas card fund, please contact Sue at

I know a lot of folks would enjoy a get- together in May and if it also resulted in a few thousand dollars for Clark...?

Any chances of a gathering of the tribe?
looking sketchy there...

Followed the FOJT link and the Donation worked fine for me.

Thanks to Robert, Phil and everyone else who got this up and running.
