I want to run a raffle to help a dear friend of mine.
This friend has been my best pal since 1998. He is a Chief in the United States Coast Guard. As you know, the government is shut down and has been for some time. I wont get into politics but Im not exactly happy about is, as many of you Im sure are. Because of this, The Chief has not had a paycheck in almost 6 weeks.
The Chief has also just informed me that the renters in his last place just moved out without notice. So he is left driving across country to clear out the place and find new renters, as well as paying 2 mortgages.
To give an idea the level altruistic nature of this guy Ill share a story: In Decemeber my entire household got Noro virus as a party gift from my side of the family. We coined the term "Vomageddon 2018". The Chief came to my house with no warning and left a care package of ginger ale (a midwest cure all), saltine crackers, pedialyte, and balloons. The Chief is without a doubt one of the most caring and selfless people I have ever been lucky enough to be friends with.
This man has dedicated his life to saving lives and keeping our borders safe. Lets help him out!
I want to pay it forward and offer an excellent opportunity for the community. I am raffling off an unreleased TKC1800 color with a one of a kind USCG diffuser and brass plate. This is a full kit. Shipping is on me.
