    PS: to get me to use that as an avatar, you are going to have to do a hell of a lot better than $1500...

    Hey, it was worth a shot.

    Ah, I do so love to stir the pot.

    OK I'm putting a challenge out there to all of you ...

    There is a brother Firefighter/Paramedic named Mark Johnson who works for the Auburn FD and UMass Medical Center. Mark used to work for Patriot Ambulance, our paramedic EMS provider and is one hell of a nice guy.

    His wife was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and had a double mastectomy and may face further surgery.

    His brothers in the Auburn FD and at UMass are raising funds to help the Johnson family defray expenses. Mark recently got appointed to Auburn, and on a probie salary things are tough.

    The Johnsons have three young children, ages 8, 7 and 5.

    I'll get the information for the fundraising efforts and post it here as soon as I get it.

    You guys raise at least $1000 for Mark and his family and buy the shirt (size XL), I will wear it and post a pic here for all to see.

    If I am going to compromise my principals, I am going to do it for a worthy cause!

    OK, if we can support a brother to this extent ...

    and more importantly, this extent ...

    ... then surely we can FAR SURPASS Gonzo's $1000 challenge!!! Regardless of the incentive of seeing El Presidente suck it up by wearing such a wacker t-shirt for all to see!

    If PayPal can't be set up I'll for sure be sending a donation by snail mail. For the first time in my life I can afford to help out when a call comes from someone in need.

    Let's make this happen!!!!

    Johnson Family

    Captain Gonzo,

    Here at BMF we have a few past and present employees of WEMS, and we have the sign up both in operations, and in the crew quarters. I am looking at it right now. I am not sure if anyone is going to the fundraiser, but I will send a little something along to the Auburn FD for you.

    Jon

    I'm in for 3 reasons...

    1) This Western MA expatriate wants to help, especially after so many have assisted me since the storm.

    2) It's the right thing to do.

    3) I wanna see Gonz blush.

    I'll be happy to donate, especially if PayPal is an option. However, when you take those pics.. lets make sure they are out in public places.. like neighboring fire stations, etc.

    We could fill that in no time, t-shirt or no t-shirt.
    The more options available, the more chance for spontaneous donations/purchases.

    Also, I have PayPal and I know that I am a lot more likely to purchase or sign up for something if PayPal is available as a payment option.

    A good friend of mine now works for WEMS, both of us being former employees of Patriot Ambulance. I might just have to get in on this.

    For the blackmail purposes of course, Cap.

    I agree, a nice touch.

    Capt Gonzo,
    Could you find out if there is a way that donations could be made by credit card. That way people reading the post are more likely to make the donation straight away, rather than meaning to send a check and forgetting.
