    To our ThePhins Family,

    We want all of our ThePhins.com members to have toys for their children and food for their Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas celebrations. This is a time of great need and we want to join you to help our members who may not have adequate money to buy food or to give a present to their children for holidays.

    To make that possible, we are starting the First Annual Take Care of Our Family Drive. "ThePhins.com will match the first $500 in donations" Donations can be made via Paypal without your name, and can indeed be mailed in if you like.

    Those Brothers and Sisters that are in a tough situation this year, will need to sit down with their other significant one, and figure out what they really need for this Holiday Season. Then, once they have done that, the family member will need to PM me with what they are in need of, and the number of children in the family as well. This will be kept confidential (site admins only). Please be considerate of what you need, and what others may need as well. We will make a priority of food on the table first, then a present for the children.

    If you can spare a few dollars to help a member in need of food for the holidays or gifts for a member's children, please either mail or donate via the Contribute link.

    If you are a member in need of food for the holidays or gifts for your children, PM me and let me know what you need and what you think it will cost to make your family's holidays enjoyable.

    If we receive a lot of donations we will be able to do more. If we don't receive an ample amount of donations we will make a priority list and go from there. We will post what we collected, and sent out after Christmas. The donations will be sent out in the form of a gift card only. This is the goal of ThePhins Family to ensure each family member has the very best Holiday Season that they can possibly have. If you have any questions at all, please contact John (Fin Fan In Cali) via PM.

    Family as you are aware that holidays are upon us. We have a lot of proud men on this site. Please look at your family, and your current financial situation. We have collected an outstanding amount from our terrific family here to help others. If you need assistance this is what the holidays are all about. If you have too much pride to ask, your spouse or children can contact me via pm or use the contact us on the site, and that will only go to the admins. We will keep this in the highest confidentially. This is for all members. I know what it is to be going through tough times, as I have been out of work since July.

    If you are in need for Thanksgiving please contact me immediately, so we can ensure in time delivery of a gift card for a awesome family meal.

    We are going with a cut off date of December 15th. So please get your pm's to me as soon as possible. If you need help after that date, please contact me, and we will do our very best to assist.:up: It may not come until after Christmas, but it will be on it's way.

    If you need help this year please take it, as in next year you could in return help another family during this time.:hi5:

    We love you all, and want to ensure that this time of the year has some cheer in it for you and your family!:wink2:

    I want to emphasize part of John's original post -- most of the members here are guys who are too proud to ask. I am like you. I love beer, knowing that I can take care of my loved ones and scratching my balls BUT this is more about your family than about your pride.

    Look your children and wife in the eye and if you have a need and are still too proud to ask for help, have them contact us.

    We have helped a couple of families already for Thanksgiving. If you need some assistance to make your holidays a little brighter, please send me a pm, or have a family member send it to me. We have been truly blessed with outstanding support this year from family. We want to make sure everyone has a smile during this holiday season. Family takes care of family through thick and thin. If you need assistance this year, just let me know, and it will be taken care of. Then if next year is better for you, you can contribute and help someone else out. This is going to be a yearly family drive to take care of our own.

    Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!:wink2:

    On behalf of the staff, I wanted to take a moment to thank all of the fantastic Brothers and Sisters here![​IMG] I am very proud, and touched by the wonderful support to this idea of helping out our fellow family members.:yahoo: Brother Celtkin shared something with me today. Two local DJ's in his area did an allniter to raise donations for a cause, we did that here in less then a day.:hi5: May each and everyone of you have the brightest of holidays this year!:wink2:
