A Friend In Need

Community member in dire straits...

Wednesday, December 8, 2010 by RedneckDude | Discussion: Community

Guys and gals, I'm sure some of you have been wondering what has happened to our friend, Wizard1956. I know a few have asked and until now, I have been asked to keep a lid on it. Randy and Theda didn't want everyone knowing the have been having it a bit hard.

 

But just a few minutes ago, I talked to Wiz on the phone. He called to let me know that he'd be inaccessible until sometime next year, not for sure when.

A few weeks ago Wiz told me he would be losing internet due to his hours being cut. A week or so later, I decided to try calling him at work and was told he was let go. So he now has no job, no unemployment yet (pending), and no phone, TV, or internet. His wife's part time income barely keeps the rent paid and heat on. Things are progressively getting worse, and now he tells me his car is out of commission and his wife is walking to and from work. Oh, and food is scarce until he can get food stamps going. So even a walmart gift card would help...anything.

So, I guess I'm asking if anyone would like to send a card, a gift, or a small donation to help Randy and Theda with a little Christmas joy. I'm sure they would appreciate it, and so would I. I am sending a few bucks friday, just a small amount.

If someone would just send a Christmas card it would brighten their holiday. I'm sure it's a bummer being in this jam for the holidays.

Wizard has asked me to tell everyone at WC he says Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and that he will hopefully see us in a month or two.

If anyone wants to send him anything at all, a Christmas card, 5 bucks, a gift....anything...please PM me for his address. He has no bank account but can get small checks cashed at his wifes work.

I truly hope some of us can do something to cheer these people up for the holidays.

 

UPDATE....Wiz has opened a bank account so that he can get checks cashed. Those who have sent checks won't have to worry if he can use them.

Hey Wiz, 'tis real good to see you back in there here forums.... bin too long gone, matey, so I hope you'll be able to drop in more regularly now that RND has come to the party with that lappy for you.  More to the point, I hope your financial situation improves dramatically very soon and your quality of life goes up a few notches as a result.

In the meantime, here's some   Hope it helps

Not yet, Mark. I haven't yet managed to get hold of the funds to cover shipping. It is a heavy old lappy and will be a bit to ship. But it's his as soon as I have the funds to ship.

Then we'll see lots more of Da Wiz!!!
