Dear Lumberjock friends,

I want to thank the 5 Lumberjocks who try to help me to realize my dream.
This people send me a donation and I want to thank them from the bottom off my heart.
It feels so unbelievable good that strange people, from a far away country, try to help you.
The feeling, thankfulness is maybe more worth than the money and that is maybe good in this case
because the fund raising was unfortunately not really a success.
I find it for Al the most unfortunate that the fund raising was not really a success, he did everything to make
it a success, but sometimes you need more people to make it a success

I don’t now off you read about the fund raising which Al organist for me.
Al Navas, a Lumberjock, have the previous 2 weeks a fund raising organized for me.
Al, was touched by my case, and he wants to help me to realize my dream, to do some little woodworking again.
a little time to think off something else than the pain.
First I was not very happy whit this idea, it feels very strange, a fund raising for me?
But Al was so impassioned and I thought maybe this was the way that God choose for me to realize my dream.
If you are interested in my story, you can read it on the blog/website from Al, see here

Thanks again the Lumberjocks who tried to help.

God bless you, Henrie alias Schummie.

Sorry for my English, it is very difficult to translate your feelings in a other languages

- – A question from someone, off a donation is still possible? Yes, off course, I will be very thankful, but a donation for the casualty’s from GUSTAV is also great. – -

Schummie, I’m sorry there wasn’t more response to the fund raiser. It’s rather disappointing. They say America is the most charitable nation on earth, but I guess the case here is, charity begins at home. Don’t give up, maybe something will work out yet, to get you woodworking.
God Bless, Henrie.

Have you ever considered doing any scroll saw work? I believe you can set it up so that you can work safely while sitting in a chair. I think you can get started for less money also.

These days everyone needs extra money so what you are asking for in many eyes is a luxury not a neccessity, so I feel maybe you couldn’t have asked for cash at a worse time in financial history.Maybe try again in a few years. I won’t be contributing sorry.I look after my three sons a grandson a wife and a home with my money any extra I spend on myself thats how it is at least I am being honest.I stopped giving to charity a while ago when I saw the waste anyway sorry but thats how I feel.Alistair

It is a good reminder to see others be giving to help out. I know as for myself I have almost givin up on society and the fact of how rude the public is epically to the disabled. Hang in their schummie I understand a lot of what you live with being I have rad/crps and a spinal cord injury if it was not for my wife and dog and woodworking I would have checked out because of this hell my body has me in. But this old post inspires me that the whole world has not gone to total hell.
