Vincent is one of my favorites. I'll b edonating.
 
2013-03-16 05:20:33 PM  
Thank you guys very much.

Please note that any amount is appreciated, and it isn't like medical bills magically disappear or stop arriving with any sort of quickness - so if you can't give anything until payday/next month, that'll be fine, too.

Also, we're going green in a bit! \o/
 
2013-03-16 05:22:58 PM  
you farkers make me feel so proud to be among you.
 
2013-03-16 05:25:18 PM  
I wish I could. Right now, every spare penny is going to help my dad while my mom is in hospice. But I will light a candle for him and hope for the best. I'm sorry that that's the best I can do.
 
2013-03-16 05:28:15 PM  
An excellent name.

Witchydiva: The PayPal account will be linked directly to Blackshadow's bank account, to keep things easy


Just donated and from the name on the account it must be his wife.

GREEN!!!!!

Alright - for folks new to the thread - Blackshadow is on the road to recovery, and able to speak for the first time in over a month (as of a couple days ago). If you can make a donation (small, large - whatever you might be able to afford), please mark it "gift" or "personal" to avoid PayPal's most painful fees.

Also, I just gave Blackshadow's wife an update on the total so far (was $750 at the time), and this is her response:

"I just told Blackshadow; he said, and I quote, 'Holy shiat! I love those guys.' Thank you so much! "
 
2013-03-16 05:32:15 PM  
On the 1st I will throw $50 your way
 
2013-03-16 05:32:53 PM  
*sigh* I'll out myself. I'm the name on the PP account. No PhD here, only an MBA, though I'm getting a huge kick on the comments about my name.
 
2013-03-16 05:33:06 PM  
It could be his wife's name, too.
 
2013-03-16 05:33:08 PM  
Sounds like an awful ordeal. I hope he makes a full recovery, and soon. Going to Paypal now.
 
2013-03-16 05:34:04 PM  
A free month of TF for the first 3 liters who post in this thread.

Aaaaand just read farther down in the thread and boy am I stupid.

/get well soon VB
 
2013-03-16 05:35:59 PM  
I had better be getting BIE for this.

/but seriously... hope he makes it back here soon

Mr. Nielsen would disagree.
 
2013-03-16 05:38:23 PM  
Sucks to here. Hope to see him back posting soon.

And any medical experts wanna comment on how you catch something scary like this?

Oh great.  Now the missus is going to ask who the woman is I just sent money on Paypal.

I should have learned by now.  Every time I do something nice, it always comes back to bite me on the arse.
 
2013-03-16 05:40:59 PM  
Wishing for a speedy recovery!

You could have at least wished Vincent good health, greedysmurf. >:(
 
2013-03-16 05:43:59 PM  
I'm in.
 
2013-03-16 05:46:09 PM  
MRSA's nothing to fool with.  Glad he's heading in the right direction.  With a farker involved I was expecting some sort of alcohol being spilled on electronic equipment, perhaps blacking out a stadium.
 
2013-03-16 05:46:56 PM  
Happy to donate to vincent_blackshadow - a TFarker who came too close to moving Beyond Fark.
 
2013-03-16 05:47:39 PM  
Get well soon, buddy.

Well, that's a given.  I hereby wish said health to said person.

It's neato how people around here come together and help each other when not insulting their mothers.
 
2013-03-16 05:49:01 PM  
You guys are great. We've broken the $1,000 threshold. Very much looking forward to reporting again when I have another update on Vincent's health, and when we break the $2,000 threshold.
 
2013-03-16 05:50:36 PM  
"PLEASE BE GENEROUS."

Good wishes and hope from people ain't going to pay the bills.

$50 from 100 people should be easy.
 
2013-03-16 05:50:53 PM  
Don't really know this fella, but his situation sounds horrific and I can spare a few bucks.
 
2013-03-16 05:51:12 PM  
Get better soon.
 
2013-03-16 05:55:55 PM  
 
2013-03-16 05:56:44 PM  
Why why why won't you people adopt universal (single payer) healthcare?  "Relying on the generosity of others" is not a health plan.

Mein Gott!  TotalFark again!   Thank you!   I missed it.

Thank you sweetie, that's plenty. Everything helps whether it be money, prayers, candles, hoodoo or voodoo. I'm sorry to hear about your Mom, best wishes to you all.

Mike's a good friend of mine who's been really helpful when needed, and now he and his family need a little help from us. Thanks to all for pitching in any way they can and thanks to the folks organizing this. You all rock.
 
2013-03-16 05:58:49 PM  

Witchydiva: To donate via PayPal, please use vblackshadow*fundraiser[nospam-﹫-backwards]liamg*com

Please be generous.


Thanks for setting this up! I had no idea he was in the hospital. One of my coworkers has MRSA running in her family, so I know how serious it is. Happy to help and give a bit.
 
2013-03-16 05:59:40 PM  
We kicked in what we could. Hope it helps. Our thoughts are with them.

Also, this is not the politics tab, people.
 
2013-03-16 06:00:05 PM  

GBmanNC: Sucks to here. Hope to see him back posting soon.

Breathing. Touching stuff (any stuff). Ingesting anything.

/Not a medical expert.
//But those bugs are all around us.
///Mostly we kick their ass before they catch a ride.
////Sometimes not. Usually with bad results.

/One more slashy just to tell you farkers to donate what you can.
 
2013-03-16 06:03:56 PM  
I wish him well.
 
2013-03-16 06:05:38 PM  
You people [youpeople.jpg] are renewing my faith in humanity again. Thank you to everyone who has given - financially and/or well-wishes. Every little bit is appreciated. I understand that the thread will be read to him, so if you guys have messages directly for the man himself, have at!

It is 11pm here, so I'm going to sign off for a while and see if I can get to sleep while I've got warm fuzzies. Updates on the total when I wake up (or in a few hours, if I can't manage to sleep).

2013-03-16 06:08:59 PM  

Witchydiva: ...after a little more research, it appears that marking your donation as "gift" or "personal" (rather than purchase) are the least painful options PayPal will allow.


Sending money via the "Personal" tab on the Send Money page is free to the recipient no matter what category you select.  There's a $500/month limit on free sendings.

But how did a motorcycle catch a MRSA infection?
 
2013-03-16 06:09:03 PM  
Tudorgirl: Sorry this reply is so late. I'm very sorry to hear about your mother, and wish you and your family the best during your own difficult time. Thank you for the candle for our farker - I will light one for your mother.
 
2013-03-16 06:10:26 PM  
Godspeed on the road to recovery VB. Even the liters are familiar. Embarrassingly flat broke for a middle aged dude, but at least I can shoot you some good vibes .~goooooood~viiiiibbbbes~

Franko: Why why why won't you people adopt universal (single payer) healthcare?  "Relying on the generosity of others" is not a health plan.


I know where my money goes for this one, and there is not 126 government bureaucrats getting a sliver as well.
 
2013-03-16 06:12:50 PM  
not trying to be a dick but who? I don' t know the name and the Google's only seem to turn up stuff about motorbikes. Is he a farker? If so then the headline should probably say that rather than fark favourite (whatever that means). Speaking of which, without knowing who this person is the headline doesn't really elicit much sympathy to donate.

With that being said I hope that Mr Blackshadow makes a full recovery and wish he and his family all the best.
 
2013-03-16 06:15:59 PM  
Sending good thought and prayers to him and his family.


MRSA is a Staph infection that resists drug treatment. You can lose limbs from it. Very, very ugly.

Anyone who has kittehs and G-pigs is ok in my book!
 
2013-03-16 06:17:15 PM  

Witchydiva: I understand that the thread will be read to him, so if you guys have messages directly for the man himself, have at!


vinny, we're all sending you a world of positive thoughts and best wishes.  You deserve 'em, and *then* some.

I'll be keeping my fingers, toes, arms, legs, eyes, and shoelaces crossed for the speediest and most thorough of recoveries for ya - salud, amigo, and take care!

vincent_blackshadow is a TotalFarker and is very popular with many of us in the fark community.

I wish there were a street addy to send a cashier's check to. I am one of the few lacking a PayPal, so I will ask my bro if he'll send it for me two weeks from now. Hope my lil bit helps. And I hope you only ever get better, you Farker!
 
2013-03-16 06:21:16 PM  
don't know the guy but I don't need to to want to help.
