EDIT FEB 10:

PLEASE STOP SENDING CONTRIBUTIONS AT THIS TIME.

We have raised alot of money for his trip, and it is rolling, as Airline tickets have been purchased.  Any further donations would take to long to process at this time to get the funds to him, so do not send me any more..

Approx $2100 was raised, with total airfares being arounf $900  .


Some of you may know of this: http://num8.livejournal.com/62445.html

It is private, so many of you may not be able to read it, but in any event, I know it will be hard to keep this a secret from num8, however I am going to post it anyways.

I and a bunch of furs are going to try to bring num8 to the US on Feb 12.  It is undecided as to how long his stay here will be..  Currently, I'm predicting on trying to make it a week for him, and I'd be flying him into Orlando.  My first priority for him here in Orlando is to get him on as a Fursuit Subservient.  I will also be taking time off from work to get him into Disney and with help of others, into other local theme parks.

However, other things could happen, but I would need the help of others.. 

I mostly have the airfare to get him to the US, with the help of others.  I plan on getting him a stand by open ticket, so we can be flexible on the return dates.  What I would like to propose is taking up a collection to add funds to his travel around the US, so he can visit some other cities and see other people.  I would like to raise money so he can get domestic flights to a couple other major hubs of furry get togethers, as well as finish off the fare for his international flight, as well as get him some food money while he is here.

If you all would like to contribute, I will use my paypal account, and then will turn that into the tickets and extra cash over to him when he's here...

If you want to paypal a contribution, you can send it to fps@pawpet.org, and please put in the subjuect that it is for NUM8 so it all will be accounted for and going to him.

Thank you all for reading..

EDIT:

--excerpt from his locked LJ--:

So I've received the final result of the exams (the doc phoned me) monday morning.
The final state after many wrong results before and weird pseudo stuff. I've an advanced unreachable tumor and my body seems to have some metastasis but didn't checked that points.

And too late discover is too late. I should last liike a week or two, depends of the resistance of my body and other stuff.

So right now I'm at Codydawg's place traveling around to see as many friends as possible and gonna have fun ! :3
That's all. Also, please, try to not be sad. That would be nice ^.^

EDIT on Feb 9:

Num8 will be travelling with DukeFawks as a travel partner to help with travel issues and lodging.  Duke will not be using any of the contribution funds, as he is well capable on his own, so all donations will still go directly to num8.

TENATIVE ITENERARY:
  • FEB 12  Fly from AMS to US (if no fare avail on 13th)
  • FEB 13  Recover from jet lag, or Fly To US from AMS, Kissimmee Fair at night (if not too jet lagged)
  • FEB 14  Islands of Adventure
  • FEB 15  Sea World or just chill in AM, FPS in evening
  • FEB 16  Disney Park, meet up with Ocicat/Pandaguy
  • FEB 17 Fly to ORD (Chicago). Visit Perro etc..
  • FEB 19 Afternoon Fly to Dallas
  • FEB 20-22 Furry Fiesta (tenative, awaiting word from con-chair) Are rooms avail?  Room Share? At this point  ( We have the funds to even pay for a room.
  • FEB 23 Fly to SFO (san fran). Motel
  • FEB 26 or 27  Return to AMS.

and on a side note, we will not be making any flight booking until the day before he is intending to leave, to be sure he feels up to it still.. 

There has been an amazing turn out with donations, and I'm amazed at how people are helping out..  Just as a side note, if this trip does not happen, I will be refunding all the paypal donations, via paypal, but might have to give a couple days..  Since the amount of cash that came in, I need to transfer it out into my bank account several days before so that it clears into tangible cash, and if I need to do the refunds, I'll have to get it all back into paypal to issue the refunds..  (The amount is bigger than I had expected)..  But, he should be able to quite enjoy this trip.

I can't throw any money into the Swear Jar to help with funds for the moment... but with my brother living mostly with his fiance now, I could let him stay a night at my place here in Albany for a trip to the New York State Museum, perhaps. Just a random thought.

'course if I got caught it'd be hell to pay but these are special circumstances. Just a random idea if he wants to see the capital of NY and how much it sucks ass.

I sent some money to NUM8. I really hope it helps. I wish I could do more.

Even though I haven't had the pleasure of meeting NUM8 in person, if he ever around the Seattle, WA/Vancouver, BC area, let me know and I can see if I can hang out and help in anyway I can :D

*note: the subject line i think says "Funday PawPet Show" even though I typed the subject to say "NUM8". I write a personal message in it, so you should know its for him.

Unfortunately, I'm unable to do anything to help. But I do send my best wishes to Num8. Way to keep your chin up and have fun with the time you have left. You're braver than most people. :)

By the way, in case he hasn't already, num8 needs to complete the ESTA application ASAP. This is (going to be) the replacement for the green Visa Waiver forms and needs to be completed by anyone who wants to enter the US without a formal visa. And he should take the printout with the registration number with him for check-in, as not all airlines are currently able to easily verify if a passenger has completed the registration.

I feel for ya Num8. I can only hope the Doctors were wrong. I'll be praying for ya. Good luck on this upcoming FPS show. Those subservients do get quite a workout. It's just scary how those tumors can be.

I have had Num8 on my AIM buddy list for a long time, and I'm saddened to hear this news.

I haven't kept in touch with him, and now I'm regretting I haven't. I hope he's having lots of fun in the States.

If you see this Num8, send me a private note so we can attempt to make up for lost time.
