A good cause is a good cause. Is it about the kids or the feelings of the "grown ups"? Its a great cause BUT, because sombody posted something that I took personally, ahh the heck with the sick kids??? [Confused]

Whip, You did a real good thing buddy! [Not Worthy]

The negativity of some is just ridiculous, yes...ridiculous!!

I'll never understand how some people think [dntthnk] [Frown] sad really....

I mean seriously...you're not going to participate because of a thread about trying to get things going to make more money for sick kids....com'on!

Keep the faith guys,never mind the folks that just "don't get it"

I'll say it again, Whip you did good brother!

Just like politics. Its now "us" vs "them", "you" vs "me".

Thanks to everyone their contributions, however they see fit to make them. Lets not let this drift into bad feelings.

Deadbolt, I don't argue about stuff on here. Please, just go back and read my last post and if there is something about it that you don't understand or take exception to send me a PM.

Deadbolt,

I have read this whole thread and no one is pressuring anyone to donate or bid that I could see. Whip was just reminding us that the auction was coming up and if we had things to donate we needed to get it done. I applaud you for what you do in your eveyday life, but do not make judgements on others for what we do. I have been a member here for quite a while and have never been pressured to do anything. This site has become a family to me that has prayed for me and helped me through some tough times. Loosing a wife to cancer, loosing a job to a bad economy, etc. They step up each and every day to help one another in either deed or prayer and I am proud to be a member here. I have participated in the St. Judes acution every year because it is a great cause not because I felt pressured to do it. Participate if you want to or not if you do not. No one will judge you either way. Ok enough of the soap box. Nuff said

Whip,

I always like making lemon aid out lemons.....so I'll make up for the "friend that was doing to donate a few items but is not because of this post" tomorrow....not sure how, but I will. I'll find something to make up for it.

I want to donate but don't have a card also I thought up that trade gang should charge ten dollars a year and donate that money to st Jude's. It would also keep people from just signing up and possibly ripping people off. 10 dollars a year membership donated to the kids. My thoughts.

Whip, I love ya Brother! Not a better person or more well meaning thread started in awhile. I must've got your vibe because I posted another small item on the Auction site before I read your post. I love helping the kids, but I'm a little selfish too. I have great fun bidding, sniping, and buying items.

WOW! I have read and re-read Joe's original post on this thread and am amazed that anyone would take it for anything other than what it was intended. If you can not donate, do not feel obligated to donate, spend your time and resources elsewhere, or otherwise do not want to participate, so be it.

I can not imagine feeling personally insulted by the call to action that was originally posted. I certainly can not imagine being so turned off by it as to change your mind about donating to the St Jude's cause.

I understand the toughness of the economy and the fact that as a society we are spread pretty thin right now. However, the number of donors vs the number of tradgang members speaks to general apathy.

Joe, thanks for trying to rally the troops. Your intentions were noble and the results have been more positive than not.

I will NEVER understand the attitudes of some posting here. I am grateful to Whip for the post--I put up a beautiful bow and set of Autumn Orange arrows. I can be counted on from now on to support the sick kids that St. Jude's helps. Haven't felt this good in a while. Whip you are the man [Not Worthy] .

I wasn't going to donate this year as i give all year long and was having trouble getting things together this year, i have cancer and it is hard to find time between treatments and trying to get the every day things done, i will get it done though, may not be much but it will work.
All i can say is if you don't want to
give then DON,T, you won't be missed by me ,but maybe by the kids.
And
who ever your are I Hope You never have to go through this. [archer2]
