Help a Hero Raffle

Dear All:

I tend to win raffles a disproportionate amount. To pay back a little I purchased a nice little knife from our neighbors in Alabama, Bear & Sons. The knife is one of the new Bear Ops knives, the Rancor, that they recently started to make. It's a handful of knife that would find itself at home as a tactical or camp knife. I think that you will like it (pictures and description below). Since I don't really want to handle money, I thought that we would do this a bit differently. I tend to trust people until they prove otherwise; so, I'm trusting you. The tickets will be $1.00 each or 10 for $10. Please don't get more than 10 (this may change if they don't go within a reasonable period of time). If all are not sold in a couple of weeks I'll fill up the slots with a space from each entrant until all 100 are used. The number will be chosen by the Georgia Lottery Cash 3 Evening draw the night after the spaces are filled. (http://www.galottery.com/) The way you pay is to donate to a charity that helps veterans, firefighters (I'm a 28 year volunteer fire captain), police, or any other emergency responders. If you had rather you can donate to the Red Cross. Send me a copy of the receipt showing the amount (remember that the initial limit is 10 spaces). Please note that the donation should be on or after the date of this thread. Should people send in receipts after this is closed I cannot replace your money. I'm not rich. Send proof of donation to epajlk@yahoo.com, cover or otherwise mask any unneeded personal information. If you had rather you can mail the POD to me at Jim Kitchens, P.O. Box 204, Arnoldsville, GA 30619.

And, please post what you've done to this thread so that I know how many spaces remain.


The knife lists for $160 and is marked First Production. You can see it at the Bear Ops web: http://www.bearopsknives.com/products/mc100ds.html

Thanks for doing this.

Ok Jim,
I just went to Red Cross on Google and clicked on "Donate Online".
The min is 10.00 (perfect).
I chose to send it to "where needed most" and clicked the PayPal button.
The entire process took less than 2 minutes and I got a printed receipt.
The receipt Transaction Number is ON493279014.
I am scanning the receipt and sending to you.

Jim,
Please pass that knife on to a good kid or a scout or a soldier.
It really needs to go to a good home.
Thanks foes the noble effort.

Here is a picture of Charleen one of our firefighters in the Wolfskin Volunteer Fire Department. Though she's only been with the department a few years she has proven to be a person that you can depend on, a valuable asset in someone you trust with your life. In the picture is a donated second hand hydrant that she just picked up in a neighboring town which will become the base for our mailbox.

When I asked what kind of knife she had in her turnout gear she said that she didn't have one. She is delighted with the Bear Ops, thanks to Steve Janik.
