    Seat Concepts benefit for Gerry AKA Mr Gizmow - Buy Seat Concepts Give 100% to Gerry

    UPDATE: So I have an update from Gerry this evening he thanks everyone for their concern but he says his finances are in good order and not a problem and he suggests we donate to others in need. I'm not trusting of any charities myself so I'm still hoping for forward what I have already received to Gerry asking that he forward the funds to someone in need since he will be in the actual community.

    For now I'm putting this offer on hold but I asked Gerry to let me know if anything changes.

    My offer of a free SC kit to the high donor still stands as well as any deals I have already made relating to other SC kits

    Thanks for all the offers already received !!!

    If Gerry finds other folks in need in his area I'll open my offer back up but I trust Gerry finding a home for the funds over any charity org


    if anyone would like to have a Seat Concepts seat kit for their TW I will donate 100% of my sales to help Gerry

    I prefer to keep the pricing private to protect Seat Concepts who have been very nice helping us here on the forum with great pricing so pls PM or email me for the prices

    You can pay me via paypal friends and family or mailed payments I'll subtract only the actual postage from your purchase and donate 100% of the balance to
    https://www.gofundme.com/tw200-forum...-for-mr-gizmow

    No Limit on how many Seat Kits you can buy I believe I have about 20 kits remaining

    Sadly my finances are in dire straits so I'm cash poor myself but I do have TW stuff in inventory I can donate

    [email protected] is my direct email or PM through the forum is fine

    Prayers for Gerry and all other effected by these crazy fires

    PS: if Gerry has a paypal account I can friends and family transfer funds immediately upon receipt as to get him the cash ASAP - pls shoot me his paypal info if available

    Hi PlacerLode,

    Thank you for these generous offers to benefit Mr. Gizmow!

    These are a win-win deal for both Gerry and forum members who want one of these popular Seat Concepts kits.

    Thanks TWBrian for picking up a seat kit even after you donated to the GoFundMe campaign as well

    I sent you a PM for your kit type selection and mailing preferences and the first chunk of funds are ready to get to Gerry ASAP

    If anyone is "on the fence" about upgrading to a Seat Concepts seat, allow this unsolicited endorsement:

    I put one on my new TW ~900 miles ago.
    At first I was a mildly disappointed as it was a little on the stiff & hard side (no comments, ya bunch'a wankers), but I was OK with it 'cause it was just so cool looking!
    Now it has "broken in" and is a bit softer and very comfortable. A true day-long saddle...every bit as comfortable as a Sargent, even more so than a Corbin. For a LOT less $$.

    So buy one...you know you want to.
    Help Gerry's family and your little pink tushie will thank you forever!

    And thanks a million to Fred for making us this generous offer.

    I googled how it works (not on their site). It said you can use credit cards. They take 5% for profit; another 2.9% payment processing fee from each donation; and another 30 cents for each donation.

    The Go Fund Me links here were not working -- but I was able to put one in that worked.

    WOW, Lets see if I have this right. The good will from others sent to those who are in severe pain and suffering nets around 8% profit for this Go Fund me scam???
    I would rather just send a gift of which they get every damn dime of it.
    Someone in the know please PM Gerry and his wife's address so I can send a check or gift card they can use immediately.

    The thing I read started out saying that it IS a FOR PROFIT organization.

    The last posting about where Gerry was staying said that they might have to evac from that location that night too. They have a friends rental place that they will be getting to stay at - but no info yet.

    Hey Gary...

    On their site, they ask for 10%, but I also wanted them to have the full amount, so I clicked on the "other" button and then entered nothing as a "tip" and was able to send the full amount without it getting dipped into. I understand they need funds to run the site, etc, but it's not mandatory.

    I was able to reach Saskia just a bit ago. Gerry was away working on something in the little apartment they found and she will ask him for his pay-pal account when he gets back if he has one. Others have inquired also, so I told them it was important, that folks want to help, and to create one if he doesn't presently have one. She'll get back with me later. I will get it to you if/when they respond.

    On another note: They didn't have to evacuate and now their friends would like them to house sit for a bit while they go on a pre-planned vacation. They also might have a line on a house in Oroville, so they don't really know yet where they might end up.
