Ace's GoFundMe Momentum Thread/Posbang

Submitted by Mercury Hayes on October 9th, 2018 at 4:40 PM

Not sorry if already posted, but let's keep this fundraiser going. If you missed Ace's front page post here it is:

Now that everyone has caught up on the background let's keep the money cannon going. The goal has been reached (which deserves a POSBANG) but also, medical bills are tricky. Let's get Ace a bigger safety net so he can actually rest and get on the mend!

Do your thing MGOBLOG.

The money cannon is an awesome thing to behold. Unique intersection of i) a person who has provided tons of thoughtful analysis and entertaining writing, ii) an online community of individuals who actually care about someone else and appreciate the work Ace put in relative to the first point, and iii) a group of people with the economic means to contribute to a truly worthy cause.

Basically three things that you won’t find on RCMB

Everyone who can--please consider donating.  Especially now that the initial monetary goal has been reached, I would imagine Ace will be moved by the number at the bottom (number of people donating) as much as by the top number.  Even if you only give $5, it will help reach a target of 1,000 people donating--which would be an incredible testament to the MGoBlog community.

I'm pleased to have donated - I've enjoyed Ace's work since I discovered this Blog. Great to see the community come through for one of our own.

Please help keep the money cannon firing!

I don't mean to tell you how to live your life, Ace. But there's a guy (originally from Germany) who now owns a goat herd and creamery on Maui. He moved for health reasons....

Not sayin', just sayin'.

Funny thing, I've printed their T-Shirts here in Michigan.  I've always intended to travel here ever since.  Had a few original designs I liked.

This one is my favorite T-shirt.  I have one that is about 8 years old.

Glad to see the multiplier is larger than I thought.  I donated at the halfway point and wondered if I should have given more.  Get well Ace and way to go MGoCommunity.

Theres times I’m really annoyed with MGoBlog sometimes but times like these make me realize the community is in a good place. This is the Michigan Difference.
