THE NOAH AND ADAM LEE TRUST FUND (where to send your donations) - 01/22/08 05:32 PM

Ok, here's the info. I've set up a P.O Box for all the donations to be mailed to.
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU INCLUDE YOUR ONLINE NAME SO I KNOW WHO TO CHECK OFF MY PLEDGE LIST!

Please make checks (personal, cashiers, or money order) payable to:

"The Noah and Adam Lee Trust Fund"

Mail to me:

K. Jodi Gear
P.O. Box 1813
Ferndale, WA 98248-1813

Some of our Canadian members are sending postal money orders, but that can be expensive. We may have a couple of other options, PM me for details.

JonNYC will handle Euro donations - PM him (or me, and I'll have him contact you) for details.

Although the post office doesn't like it when you send cash, if your donation is under $30 and you feel comfortable sticking a few bills in an envelope and mailing them, that's ok by me as well. Just at least include your online name so I know who it's from.

THANK YOU FRANK for handling paypal! (see below) Please, if you decide to donate this way, send me an PM, or post that you've done it so I can cross you off the pledge list! Thanks so much!

[edited by Frank B.]
For those who prefer to donate via PayPal, I've set up a special account. See the "Donate" button in our What's Hot box.
I will collect the donations and send a check to the fund. (Frank B.)

Jodi,

You might be surprised how much difference it might make to allow people to contribute via Paypal. It's one click -- people can do it on impulse, while they are moved to do so. You might consider just getting one of the group involved to allow their Paypal account to be used. They can then just have a check cut out of the Paypal account and mailed (by Paypal) to you. Paypal charges $1.50 to do this.

Thank you for your good work. My check is in the mail tommorrow.

My check is in the mail. I second Mark's recommendation for PayPal. Although there are a lot of people that pledged and (hopefully) will come through, making it easy to do with a couple of mouse clicks would let people take care of it quickly and easily. It might also (as Mark suggests) get a few donations on impulse.

And thanks Jodi for doing this.

All done!

Thanks again to the organizers for putting this together with such thoroughness and speed.

I too think Mark is right about Paypal. It's a way to reduce the 'slippage' in any pledge process. And it might actually generate some unpledged drop-in business. On the other hand it might be a hassle.

Just donated. Thanks for setting up paypal - my right hand is in a cast, so it's hard to write a check.

A request from Justme:

Let's not discuss any details about the case, any intentions of what the family may or may not do etc...

I would just like to discuss the touchy feely stuff and be able to cry to you ever so often.

I appreciate all you guys.

After everything is over I'll give you all the details. Just please don't believe all you read throughout this tragedy. there's not an ounce of evil in Nathan or Denise.

Love you all,

Peggy[/b]

Donated by Paypal, but forgot to put my forum name on the form... But I don't think there are many Michael B's in Switzerland that hang around here.

Being somebody who has lost a loved one to murder, this particularly moved me. I will be sending a check this week.

Oh, I'm so sorry. And thank you.

Here's some pics you may not have seen. She was such a sweetheart.

Also Nathan's latest blog entry on myspace.

Denise


Noah


Nate and Adam at the press conference


My Angel
Current mood: blessed


I cant begin to explain the thoughts that have been going through my head the last few days. Despite all the horrible thoughts and nightmares I have been having, I still cant help but smile. The reason is Denise. If you knew her I dont even need to explain myself further. However, I think writing this will help me get through this unimaginable, horrifying, senseless circumstance. I am trying to call it a circumstance because circumstances change, and I believe, as hard as it seems at this moment, that somehow God did this for a reason. Some people shut out God in situations like these. However, my faith has never been stronger. After seeing the love and kindness that was displayed on Wednesday while Denise processed through Englewood, as well as the overwhelming support from my family, friends, and complete strangers, I believe that I have realized the reason. It is ashame that we live in a world where it takes some type of tragedy like this to happen for people to come together like they have. Like my dad said at the funeral, if God needed an angel, he picked the perfect person. I wish he hadnt picked her, but that is extemely selfish of me. I loved her so much, and that is an extreme understatement. I am thanking God everyday that Denise was able to experience the things she was able to in the short time she was here. She was able to experience true love, childbirth, motherhood, and friendships that will last forever. Baby, if somehow you can read this, I miss you so much. Im so sorry that I couldnt find you and save you. Every night, when the boys are old enough, we will kneel beside there beds and talk to you. I will instill in them the love, and kindness that you portrayed every moment of every day. God couldnt have put a more beautiful angel on this earth. I know you will be with me and the boys always. I have so many beautiful memories to warm my heart for the rest of my life. I cant wait to see and hold you again and I promise when I do, I will never let go. I will thank you everyday for saving our sons lives. Rest in peace brave, beautiful angel. I will love you always.

Love,

Nathan
