Default Thank you for your kind words "outlaw256"

Thank you for your kind words "outlaw256". I am glad to hear that everything worked out and you get to hear "pappa"! God is good!

Gather your friends up and vote. The "Yes" it is spam is leading right now and after tomorrow this post might be gone.

If it is, thank you to everyone that gave it a chance and read about it!

My niece is going in for a major heart surgery in September. St. Judes is the place helping her and her family.

On a different note, God saved my life in a major wreck in December, so I am a better person because of it. I thank God everyday for every breath!

To everyone, take care and God Bless you and your family,
Hooper

I feel it's spam when it's somebody coming on here only to post their raffle, contest, or whatever. But It's more acceptable when it comes from a regular member.

I have no doubt this is a wonderful cause and would be happy to support it.

The question propossed was not if it was a good cause, but weather it should be classified as spam. Any unsolicited advertisment is spam and should be placed in the advertisment section.

I read the whole thread. At first, I was thinking Spam... & then I saw a change in perspective... if it were my kid, I would reach as many, wherever I could. If it was a members kid, I would donate... period. I know that if this was my son or daughter, you guys would help me if you could. So, I have to go with my heart on this one & support the kids who need help.... I am happy to donate too.

If this were "work at home & make millions from your home sipping Martini's by poolside" type of ad, I would say go away & pound sand... that belongs somwhere else.

Do you think it would be ok if the raffle or contest would be listed under events? Because that's kinda what it is. Just a thought.
