Mate in trouble ... would you ?

If a mate, on here was in a bit of a "corner" - would you consider putting your hand in your pocket ? maybe a 5.00 or 10.00

I would because we have never "met" physically except through his photographs and I have been so inspired and learned so much from his book

please pm me if you would for more info

Re: Mate in trouble ... would you ?

John's situation touched a nerve with me, as my dad developed Parkinson's years ago.
Made the decision yesterday and ordered the book, profit hopefully into John's
account, a small help I know.

Re: Mate in trouble ... would you ?

O.K. I was on a break but I saw this. I really am touched and cannot believe the generousity of this forum, but please, please, please no fund! It's something I have to cope with myself, in the short term and the long term.

Gosh, it's great that there is a sudden surge in orders for my book, but please only order if it is something that you really want - remember, the lion's share of the profit goes to Blurb!

John, should they be ordered via yourself ? I am thinking you can buy stock at a discount ?

Re: Mate in trouble ... would you ?

Well, HUGE Thanks to all who were keen to support a mate

It seems that it is not to be ... not what John wants - but he is very appreciative that so many are so generous

I am going to order some cards for birthdays etc., as Janet and its seems others are buying the Blurb book of Johns' ... and prints too

BUT Thank YOU for joining in the support of a mate ! x hugs Chevvy

Chevvy I was just about to pm you but then saw the rest of this thread and John's words. I already have the book but will definitely go for the cards what a great idea. Maybe John will do some specific Christmas ones.
