Fundraiser for Bill Southern


Recommended Posts

It breaks my heart to tell you that Bill's wife of 27 years, Barb, has stage IV cancer that has spread to her brain. She has had a lot of radiation therapy and most recently, a second biopsy that bore grim news. Like so many, they don't have health insurance and the medical bills are piling up. Without help, Bill could lose everything trying to
add days to Barb's life.

I know Bill as a man who never passes up a chance to help anyone who needs it. I know a lot of you guys know his generosity of spirit. He has given to every one of my fundraisers and it's time for help to come back his way.

That's where you and I come in.


Bill and some really special friends have donated some meteorite-related items for me to sell to raise money. They need help quickly so please contact me at dragonsoup@msn.com to purchase any of these OUTSTANDING offerings on a first-come, first-served basis:

For those who are computer challenged and do not have a pay-pal account... another

way would be is to simply send Bill a check to his home address... Uncle Ron would you

post it ?

Ron, I don't know who she is

but I don't think she's been watching the forum too closely these last weeks.

Just my impression with nothing to go on but this post.

I am adding to this a day later.

Thank you for clarifying Maria

and, more importantly, thank you for your desire to help the Southerns.

Hi all,

Maria Haas is a friend of mine, and Bills and the Treasurer of the IMCA (International Meteorite Collectors Assoctiation) which is why she states that this is NOT and IMCA affiliated fundraiser. Just something she and I wanted to do for Bill and his wife. Yes, we've been talking to Bill and know of the goings on here for him and we also know he very much appeciates everything. What she posted is a form letter (of sorts) that is posted on all forums related to meteorite hunting. We're trying to raise cash for him. If you'll notice even many of the items listed are items Bill himself put up.

Just trying to help...that's all. Bill is a good friend and needs us right now......

She posted the same message in each of the different forums thinking there are individual readers of each group only. Most of us read 'View New Content' and we see all of them.

Hi Everyone,

Sorry to have caught you off guard like that. I am known in the meteorite world but not in the nugget world. It is been a long, long time since I posted here and even then, it was in Meteorites.

I will try to delete those duplicate posts. Yes, I was trying to be as visual as possible by posting all over the place. My bookmark takes me straight to meteorites and I wasn't sure if many of you guys crossed over. Come to think of it, you guys helped me buy my first detector years ago!

None of the proceeds are going through any of my accounts (unless you want to be anonymous, of course) so after you check with me to see if an item is still available, I will direct you to send straight to Bill's PayPal: bill@nuggetshooter.com and send me a copy of the receipt. I will be providing Bill with an accounting of everything I know about.

All of the thin sections and the Seymchan are sold and the next day I will be shipping is Monday.

Thanks for being so careful.

Best wishes,

Maria
