I am sure most of you have read about the horrible tragedy that occurred to a fellow wheeler, Gavan Young from Pirate4x4. If not, then read..
And our own thread here on JKO..
Its is hard to fully wrap your head around this kind of sudden loss and if it has been forefront on my mind the last few days, I am sure it has been for many of you as well.
This community is a fickle beast.. we will eat our own for what seems like the sheer fun of it... flame a n00b for asking dumb questions.. ridicule a blinged out rig.. torch a vendor for shipping out product a day late.. but all of that is counter balanced by what this community does when one of our own falls or suffers. The generosity we have witnessed throughout the years here on JKO/Pirate is awe inspiring. This community will circle its wagons for someone no matter what rig they wheel, or what forum they participate in, and that is what I think sets us apart as a community.
We may not know Gavan, but hopefully through this effort.. Gavan will know us, and know that there are some people out here who have been touched with a comparatively miniscule amount of his pain but would happily carry more for him if possible.
Let him know what kind of community he belongs to;
Send a card, or a personal note to
Pirate Media Group
C/O Gavan Young
PO Box 5395
El Dorado Hills, CA 95762
It has been suggested that you can include a single dollar in your card as a token of support and that those dollars, when added together by the number of people in this community, would bring some financial relief to Gavan.. buy some groceries, or make a payment on a bill, etc.. You can of course include whatever amount you like.
Thank you JKO.. I can't imagine a better group of souls to ask this of.
