THIS IS NOT AN AUCTION PLEASE READ BELOW!

In August of 2011 I decided to once again do something I swore I would never do again and began the undertaking of setting up a charity auction for a friend of ours who was raising funds to get their son Eddie a service dog. A few weeks ago the family went to pick up their new dog Zeppelin. This list is my public thanks to everyone who donated games, money, etc to the auction which ended up raising over $1,000 and was the most succesful fundraiser anyone did for this goal.

I will be emailing/geekmailing all of the companies/users that donated in the next few days but I just wanted to put something out publicly because they are awesome!

Presenting Eddie


And Zeppelin

I live my life in growing orbits, which move out over the things of the world. Perhaps I can never achieve the last, but that will be my attempt.
