The Winds in the Sails

In short, this began as a Halfway to Halloween costume party. It became a fundraiser as I witnessed the ordeals friends went through with amputations and got to thinking of how I could help, and a fun way to do it!

Financially speaking, I realized there is more to it than medical insurance coverage fine print or Obama Care...

You are out of work resulting in loss of income, but the rent/mortgage/utilities/insurance/etc bills do not wait, they just pile up with disconnection notices. Making ends meet may be nothing new, but Pharmaceuticals need to be paid for at the counter. Physical Therapy becomes a new expense. Household items of accommodation (grab rails, ramps, shower chairs, etc) need to be purchased and installed while your world has already stopped and turned upside down...

Your share of costs for prosthetic appliances becomes inevitable.

Perhaps we can generate some money, connections, and support through "Pirates for Prosthetics" to help in those transitional times.

We put together a Pub Crawl, and sold T-shirts, Can Coozies, and held 50/50 cash raffles... Our first round had 55 participants and we amassed a booty of $1100 in proceeds with a boat load of fun doing it!

I'm just a guy who likes a good Pirate Costume Party, and hosting a pub crawl in St. Paul to raise money to help a family going through the transitional times after amputations.

Wristbands for the Crawl $10/ea

Also selling T shirts at $18/ea,
