    An Unusual Request

    Greetings friends. I know we typically frown upon advertising, but I'm in a tight spot so I hope you'll forgive me for making an exception this once. My dog Maui is super sick and needs surgery. My wife and I have started a GoFundMe to try and help cover the cost. If you're so inclined, have a look and chip in if you're able. Even just a few bucks can help. Thanks you guys.

    Donated. Zilla - you've hosted this forum for free for 15+ years, the least I can do is help out your sick pup. Wishing Maui a speedy recovery.

    I'd like to help out as well, but GoFundMe doesn't accept PayPal.
    Zilla, could you PM me the e-mail adress of your PayPal account?

    Send me a PM and I'll chip in too. Edit: nevermind, I just went directly through the fund. Good luck.

    Re: An Unusual Request

    Just noticed Zilla's GoFundMe isn't getting as much traction as I'd like.
    I plugged the campaign in the T.E.S. Facebook group.
    (If they hate me for it and kick me out, so be it. )

    I hope this helps, and if others are members of MtG groups, discords or whatnot, maybe you can help out as well.
    See if we can get this campaign the attention it deserves.
