    Wheels to Heal 2011

    It's that time of the year!

    Welcome to the 2011 Wheels to Heal Campaign Thread!



    This year I will be doing something totally different, and yet still allowing the traditional form of donation of Hotwheels to be collected.

    In short, this year has been nothing short of an emotional year for me personally; My wife (Nikki) lost her mother from cancer back in the spring, we recently got married, and are in the process of purchasing a very full-time full service delivery business that generates $200k-$250k in gross sales and still continue with my landscaping/snow removal service.

    While the above isn't meant to seek empathy from anyone, but more/less as a placeholder for how my year has been.

    That being said, this year I am going to be donating FULL Size Frozen Turkeys to various shelters in addition to any Hotwheel cars that I may receive in donations to the Akron Children's hospital as I've been doing for 7 years now.

    Last year, PayPal decided to place my PayPal account on hold (no money could be release, or received) and it took nearly 30 days to properly donate the Hotwheels cars as they are normally done.

    This year, PayPal still refuses to allow my account to work properly, so we will be doing it a little different.

    1. I can take a credit card donation over the phone (I will absorb the fees)
    2. I can physically accept cash/check/Hotwheels donations in person
    3. You can mail a check/money order to my office.


    Either way this year is going to be putting some food in people's stomaches, and hopefully making a difference in my own personal views.


    Please PM me for further details.




    This years' goal will be set at $250 or 500 Cars.
    Total $$$ Collected to Date: $0.00
    Total Cars Collected to Date: 0


    ^^^When donating, make sure to properly label and spell out exactly what you want done, and to whom in the description.

    _____________________________________

    For those that don't know, every year we raise money or hotwheel cars and donate them to a local children's hospital.

    You can participae by either purchasing the individual hotwheels, or by donating money via paypal. We prefer the donation, and we'll do the shopping for you.

    Anyone that may be on the receiving end of a ban can purchase for only $5:

    ____________________________________

    Don't take offense, be proud that one of your fellow friends/members thought enough of you to donate for a good cause. Get them back, by doing the same thing!

    All hotwheels (or hotwheels purchased from the paypal donations) will be delivered to the kids @ Akron Children's Hospital on or about Friday 12/23/11.

    All frozen turkeys will be delivered to the various shelters on or about Wednesday 12/21/11 to allow time in preparation.



    Due to my winter priorities, I won't be immediately available to a pc in order to make the changes within 5 minutes like in previous years.

    This year I ask for patience, and possibly will extend the considerations given my schedule.



    It's been my experience to search eBay for Lot of Hotwheels, where you can score hotwheels for literally $.50/each shipped. Just have to find the right deal.

    All hotwheels MUST BE UNOPENED, and single packs. Burst packs (Multiple cars) can only count as 1 (one) as the hospital counts them this way.

    Any additional questions, please use this thread...

    Looking forward to 22 days worth of fun and creativity!



    Let the Wheels to Heal begin!

    Let's have some fun!!
