one of us

Post by augustwest » Thu Dec 01, 2016 12:41 pm

One of our lot has fallen on hard times due to a serious substance abuse problem. He will be a guest of the state for a few months, including the holiday season.

Ahead of Christmas we will send him some items that hopefully will, in the words of a fellow drakian, "remind him of something that once meant a lot to him." A few weeks ago I sent him some Drake back issues (yes, apparently there is a magazine) and in the process I learned that the rules are mind-bendingly strict regarding sending letters, books, magazines, etc. So I will figure out what else to send him and coordinate everything in the next couple of weeks.

If you want to make a small contribution you can send it to me via paypal, PM me for details. We can't send him a large volume of items, so the maximum I'm willing to accept is $20 per person. He's not going to know who contributed, all he'll know is that the miscreants of the Drake are pulling for him to beat his addiction, which only he can do.

I would appreciate it if we could refrain from commentary regarding the identity of the individual, helpful suggestions of what to send him, etc. Thanks.

A long long slow walk in the spartina gives you time to think big thoughts and put your mind back into order.

Goes all of us Woolly.... One wrong turn and who knows where we can end up. How many times did it turn out ok instead of awful? Any one who can't toss in $10 doesn't really get it.

I am in, and with so under several identities. Good on ya and we all need help in this cruel cruel world.
Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need-a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing.
-Jerome K. Jerome, 1889
