$10 donation sent for my fish in Lee's picture. I'm glad to be a part of this and thank you Brian for posting this and everyone else that donated, it's a small amount that helps so much. For these kids and their families its worth much more.

This really is an amazing and heart warming effort.  Looking at the massive destruction of Moore OK...and the face of the children from the destroyed elementary schools full of tears and terror....I got all choked up thinking about what you guys are doing.

 

We're already in contact with several bass clubs in the area.  As soon as rebuilding efforts begin, your love will be sent their way. To remove the tears.  To remove the fear.  And to show we care.  To show that strangers from around the world who never met them, are there to support them.

 

A rod and reel may not seem like much, but to change a frightened tearful face into a smiling giggling bundle of joy means everything.

 

I can't thank you guys enough.

I caught 20 more fish Sunday.  That equates to $10 more on my donation.  I am keeping the rolling counter in my signature!

I was just scrolling through all of this, and to be honest, it kicked my butt.  Not so much because of the money raised, which is great especially now at what we are facing July 27th in Oklahoma, but what got me, emotionally, right in the heart, was the amount of people doing it, and having a good time doing it.

 

I write so many times about, The Family, Of Us...the world wide community of anglers that I know is out there...but scrolling through this has now, for me, today and always, put a face to The Family, Of Us.

 

Your faces.

 

I want you to know something I believe deeply, Tackle The Storm Foundation is NOT Don Barone's Tackle The Storm...I say that over and over and yet I still have somehow become the face of the foundation.

 

From now on when a reporter, or donor, or sponsor, says db's Tackle The Storm, and I refute it, you folks have given me a tremendous gift because I have bookmarked this thread, and I will send it to the person with jus a simple little note:

 

"You want to see the face of Tackle The Storm, here they are...Tackle The Storm belongs to these people, and hundreds of other people like them, I had nothing to do with setting this up, they did.  They are Tackle The Storm."

 

I write about, in life every once in awhile you come across magic, magic called, Bits of Wonderful.

 

You, are my proof of that,

 

db

As stated before I do not get the chance to fish much any more, but I have been busy trying to get some support, I was hoping to do better and get some support from our meet and greet here in Va. but as things go, life happens, and our meet and greet just absolutely fell apart, but I did receive this from Dicks Sporting Goods just today, I do not know how you can use it to be quite honest,  but here is some help from some great people at Dicks, I have been working pretty hard to save a few bucks and contribute to this foundation myself, but as luck would have it, it seems everything is starting to show it's age and every time I save a contribution, we need it to fix a vehicle, I do wish to make this pledge that by years end I will have $100.00 bucks to share with such a great cause.

This is what they sent me, if someone could point me in the right direction as to where I need to mail this, I will be more than happy to ship this off tomorrow or ASAP !

 

I tried several companies and Dicks Sporting Goods was the only one to show any interest at all, I am proud that they gave recognition to such a great cause and I wish you all the best.

 

Good luck and be safe !!!

 

My contact info,

 

540-383-8184     this is my cell , best way to text me an address to ship this too.
