    I’m not going to go into a lot of detail because it’s not my story to tell (pm Drew if you want more)...But the short of the story is that @Drew RedBear had been searching for his biological family for a while. He found them and bravely moved to Detroit Michigan to be nearer to them. Things didn’t work out, he’s had some health issues and Detroit is a mess right now (way more than normal). He needs to get out of there ASAP but has no car or funds. He started a GoFundMe and has gotten a few bucks but he’s got a ways to go and I think we can give him a little head start. All you have to do is donate at least $5 to be entered in this GAW. You will get ONE ENTRY FOR EVERY $5 INCREMENT...($5- 1 entry, $10- 2 entries, $20- 4 entries, etc). I will link the GoFundMe below and the donations can go straight to him. Just reply in this thread that you are in for “...” entries...If you prefer to use the anonymous feature, just simply say “I’m in” here in this thread and private message me how many entries you gave. I swear upon pain of death that amount will remain between the giver and myself. I’ll let this run for at least through the weekend, longer if it is still getting participation, but Drew needs to get out and home where he can take care of his health as soon as he can.

    And now for the Prizes....
    The winner will be chosen by a random drawing of some sort and will receive A red Expat Knives Zippo along with a few other small goodies. These items were very generously given by the awesome @lcmcrumley

    Make Me Proud Guys! Let’s get Drew home and the heck out of Detroit as quickly as possible...

    Here are a few items to add to the GAW. I’ll see what else I can track down today also.

    Also if you share the GoFundMe link on your social media platforms and someone donates because of it, you get another entry

    Just post here how many reference entries you earned...1 entry per donation by someone not on this forum whether it’s $5 or $500

    BTW. That Expat coin is just awesome. I’m not cool enough to have earned any cool ones but I just started collecting coins like that. I have a 70s trade coin from Some Canadian trading company and one from completing my RCIA class lol

    An Expat zippo is pretty sweet on it's own, but having a matching Expat knife would be even sweeter. I'll ship this puppy to the winner. 20200829_221305.jpg

    For clarification purposes...You have to be a member here to claim the prize. If you have friends from other forums that want in, encourage them to join. This is some nice Expat/ESEE swag and it should go to someone here
