RonPaul Applauds Generosity of Americans towards Iraqi Boy

November 30, 2007 2:15 pm EST

ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA—Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, a 10-term Texas congressman and advocate of military non-interventionism overseas, has condemned the war in Iraq but praised American humanitarian and commercial efforts helping to bring peace to the Iraqi people.

Thursday morning, a five-year-old Iraqi boy named Youssif, was afforded an important and life-altering surgery by CNN.com readers, the Grossman Burn Center in Los Angeles, California, and the Children’s Burn Foundation. More than $300,000 was raised to bring the Iraqi boy, whose face was severely scarred after being doused with gas and set on fire in Baghdad this January, and his family to America two months ago. Dr. Peter Grossman, a plastic surgeon with the Grossman Burn Center, has donated his services to repair the scarring to the young boy’s face.

Congressman Paul today issued the following statement in support of Dr. Grossman and the generous contributors:

“I often state that America’s greatest characteristic is not our military might, but rather the individual generosity and kindness of our people. Many have thanked God for it, in many different languages, and I am continually moved by the countless acts of humanitarianism by American citizens. Today, I have the pleasure of commending Dr. Peter Grossman, the Grossman Burn Center, Children’s Burn Foundation, and CNN readers who have forever changed Youssif’s life and given him hope after surviving an unthinkable and heinous attack. Their remarkable generosity is a testament to the global goodwill of the American people. Youssif himself is a reminder to us that we must not isolate ourselves from people in nations we perceive to be against us. That human connection must always be in our hearts and minds, as it certainly is with Youssif and his family. My family and I wish Youssif a safe and peaceful recovery.”

CNN first brought Youssif’s story to light nearly three months ago.

Canvassing for Ron Paul

Hey Everyone, I am going to be using my days off to go out and Canvas an area with Ron Paul information. If you live in the Wenatchee/East Wenatchee Area and are (or want to be) a part of the Ron Paul meetup group and help me out, that would be great news.

Here is the link to our meetup group (http://ronpaul.meetup.com/787)

Below you will find a map of the areas that I have canvassed so far. The green is my currently planned area and the blue is the area that I have covered so far.

So, today was the first day and I admittedly got started late. Here are the results of today's efforts though

  1. Handed out a bunch of Ron Paul Slim Jims.
  2. Everyone that I talked to was very pleasant
  3. All but 3 people took the Slim Jim. The 3 that didn't said the following:

    • "Is he a Democrat or Republican?" and then were not interested when they found out he was a republican
    • "I am already well informed about the candidates"
    • "We are not interested in politics here"

    For those that were not interested I thanked them anyway and wished them well. There were zero negative reactions.
  4. The second to last person I visited was already a Ron Paul supporter like us, and wants to join the meetup group. He invited me in and we had a nice conversation about Dr. Paul and politics. It was very exciting to say the least. I am excited to see him at the next meetup on Nov. 25th.

So, that is how the day went. If there is a way I can share this so others that are willing to door to door canvassing I will do so, otherwise, if you are doing door-to-door then please map it out at maps.google.com, save the map and send me the link and I will add your efforts to my map. This map updates automatically, so please bookmark the page and come back and see how I am doing.

3.7million - 9:20PM EST


As of 9:20 PM EST the number above is the total raised so far today in the 5th Of November moneybomb. That is correct 3.7 MILLION!!!

I got that number by taking the current total from the website and subtracting from it the beginning number as reported by the WSJ.

"Paul tracks his donations in real time on his web site. The clock started ticking at midnight when current donations were listed at $2,773,017.02. At the time of this posting — eight hours into the 24 hour effort — he had raised more than $1 million for a total of $3,805,615. In the time it took to write this post, he raised more than $30,000. The campaign has set a $12 million fundraising goal for the fourth quarter, which ends Dec. 31"

What a total, and with just under 3 hours to go, we may well hit the $4 million mark!!!

With that said, let's do this again at Christmas. A Dec. 25th Moneybomb. Merry Christmas Dr. Paul!

5th of November...25th of December!!!

Hello again friends,

The November 5th Moneybomb for Dr. Paul is fantastic. Last time I checked it was at 3+ million for the day. Wish I had thought of that idea!!! :)

So I figure now, why don't we piggyback on that idea and make 25 December another moneybomb day for Dr. Paul? We could call it Christmas for Dr. Paul or something. I am sure that someone much more capable than myself could promote this and we could raise at least 6 million next month!!!! Let's put Dr. Paul over the top and do another moneybomb on the 25th of December!

Merry Christmas Dr. Paul! Merry Christmas!

Mmmmm..... Skydiving

OK people, as you all know my girlfriend and I are trying to open a Drop Zone in our area. This is an expensive endeavor and quite honestly, I could use some help. I created a "Chip-In" and have posted it on Digg, with abysmal results to date..

So, I thought it time I add some more information and post the link to help us out again. I know this is an odd way of trying to raise the money to start a business, but what the heck. Each dollar we raise through chip-in will be returned to the chip-in community by us donating to other chip-ins once the business is up and running. Not a bad deal I think.

So what is this "more information" you mentioned Zag?

Well, I now have the logo for the business, or at least a potential logo to show everyone. The name depends on what the girlfriend thinks and perhaps there is a better name as well? Hmmm, a Contest! What a interesting idea. For each $20 you donate, you will be allowed to submit a potential business name and/or logo that will be looked at by myself and my girlfriend and voted upon. If we decide to use it, we will use the first $1000 that we give out to the Chip-In or Charity of your choice. Not a bad deal! Additionally, we will be posting all of the potentials on the business website as well as the name of every person who helped to make this possible.

If we choose a logo that you created, in addition to the $1000 we will donate on your behalf to either Chip-In or a Charity, you will be given a Gift Certificate for a free tandem skydive at our business. And to further sweeten the pot, the person who donates the most will be given a gift certificate for a free tandem skydive at our place of business as well.

So, without further adieu, here is the idea:

We would love to hear your thoughts on the potential name and logo, and see you submit some of your own.

Here are the Chip-In Details

Here's a Video of me having some fun trying to learn to Sit Fly and getting to do my First (BEER!) Canopy Stack:

1) If we don't raise $150,000 then we will use the money to help get a loan to start the business. In this case we would need to raise only $30,000

2) If we do not raise enough to start the business either with the full amount, or via the contributions plus a loan, we will refund all money contributed either directly or via Chip-In (whichever you choose)

3) If we cannot start the business, Skdiving Gift Certificate offer is not valid, because we would have no way to accomidate your skydive

4) I think I covered the scenarios there, but if I didn't cover every poential, it should be known that this is a serious venture. If we are unable to open the business no gift certificates will be given, and contributions will be returned to those that contributed or put into another chip-in based on your preference.

5) As of today, here are approximately 6 months left in this Chip-In. We need to raise approximately $800/day to reach our goal. if we can get 10,000 people, that is ONLY $.08/dayper person or approximately $15 per person over the course of 6 months. It is NOT that much. At 1,000 people, that is $.83/day or $25/month or $150/person over the course of 6 months. We CAN do this, the goal is small in comparison to other goals that we have set as Ron Paul Supporters. If we can raise 2.5million in a month for Ron Paul, raising $150k in 6 months should be a piece of cake.

Vote Ron Paul 2008! Let's not only get Dr. Paul elected as President, but let's help each other out in business endeavors as well.

Thanks for Reading and all contributions, no matter the size are sincerely welcomed and apprecaited!

Kind Regards,

Greg (AKA Zag)
