This makes me want to cry. The outpouring is tremendous especially from FSJC who more than doubled the commitments so far. I remember so many wives who lost their husbands on Okinawa, at Pearl Harbor, Midway and on. Now we have the chance to help those who made it back. I pledge two widow's mites ($2 in today's terms) despite the hardship $2 is for me. I am sure many of you stingy bastards could do $5 or $10, maybe even more if you realized how these heroes have contributed to our country. Now apply that crowbar to your wallet and pony up something. As generous as FSJC is do we really want them to out do the collective rest of us? I see the list so get that money in or NO COINS FOR YOU!

Everyone on the list so far should have received a PM from me.

The event is four weeks from Saturday so we'll leave this open until at least the middle of April.

$2800 so far! Fantastic! :clap: :clap: :clap:

I just posted the bars for sale on the YPS site. These are the same as will be handed out at the event. $5 from each bar goes to WFTW.

This is now closed. Thank you all for making this project a huge success! Your donations actually make a difference and help change lives. I'm very proud to be a part of this community that so generously supports our wounded soldiers.

Handing out these bars is a very humbling and rewarding experience. I wish more of you could join us. I saw the bars in person this week at YPS and they look great. That stamp fits on the hex perfectly. They're on sale here with $5 going to the WFTW.

And special thanks to YPS for donating the pouring, stamping, polishing and packaging. It takes a lot of work to make this many bars. :thumbup: :thumbup:

At the end a few folks upped their donation to bring the total to $3365! Just enough to make 200 bars. :shock:

200!

There are 13 of these bars remaining. I propose giving them to the officers of the Military Order of the Purple Heart Austin to distribute as they see fit.

These bars were paid for and commissioned to be given to wounded soldiers. Purple Heart recipients certainly fill that bill.

Anyone opposed?
