$30+ grand.
I am absolutely shocked.
Every day on my way to work on about a 10 mile stretch of road, there are old motels that are now used by families to live. They are one bedroom hotel rooms that an entire family lives in because they are obviously running across some tough times. It breaks my heart to see these kids waiting out by the road in front of the motel every day waiting for the school bus in the morning. I know most of them will not get anything for Christmas, and if they do, it will be almost nothing because their parents can’t afford presents. We are lucky to be fortunate and it’s time to pay it forward.

I can hold off dropping $200 on a 1 inch frag to help out this year‘s cause.
NO kid should have to go without getting visited by Santa Claus. :(
@revhtree and the R2R staff, way to knock this out of the park.

I am too, but extremely happy about it.

I skipped the black friday sales this year and spent my $ on this drive.

I grew up with 2 sets of parents and I am embarrassed by how much I received back then.
So this is one way I try to balance that out.
I'm so happy that there are some truly generous people here.

FYI - I need nothing - so whatever I win - I will allow Reef2Reef to auction - or sell or however they want to work it - depending on if I ( probably not) would win something
