This goes out to everyone who has been giving; we appreciate you so very much. ¬†You've raised 4000 dollars in a week. ¬†That's insane and amazing.
This part is specific to those of you who were able to attend today's fundraiser in Surf City:
I wanted to do this at the Brass at the end of the fundraiser but I'm not a strong public speaker but I am a strong public facebooker so here goes: I want to thank everyone who came out, everyone who organized the event, everyone who donated, and the entire community that is Topsail Island. In less than a week you pulled off a miracle and pretty much bitch-slapped the tragedy that happened. I want you all to know that Charles (JR), Brittany, and myself are eternally grateful for you.
