    I would like to thank Ed Speer of Speer Hammocks. He is donating $300 to HammockForums. I would like to thank Ed for picking our community as one of the ones he chose to support.

    Thank you Ed.

    The hammock meetup group got a donation too!

    To say I was shocked would be a grave understatement. We are using the funds to build stands for our hangs so that we can better spread the word without concern about rules involving trees. This was/is a huge assist and I can't thank Ed enough.

    Ed, you the Man!

    Thanks for supporting the forum, Ed.

    I can't help but wonder - what all hammock camping organizations were donated to?

    Silent auction donations HS Apr09

    Glad to help out! I personally know a bit about the dollar & time costs involved in providing web site forums & discussion groups. But it's these online communication services that are helping the most to spread the good news about camping hammocks. OK, I sell hammocks & accessories so I benefit financially from 'spreading the good news' but I also have a second agenda & that's to make camping & the outdoors more enjoyable to more people. Hammock camping changed my life for the better & I'm delighted to be a part of this new phenomenon. Getting the word out via the WWW just makes good sense, & everyone on this forum is a part of that.

    We raised $609 at our first silent auction at the HS Apr09 Hang & the proceeds were split between: Hammock Forums, Cannibal's Colorado Hiking & Camping site, & my own Yahoo Group discussion site. If there is continued interest, we will gladly hold similar auctions again & again....continuing to raise money for online groups/sites that promote hammock camping. While the largest bid items at the HS Hang were donated by Speer Hammocks & Warbonnet Hammocks, other significant items were donated by individuals. It was a good chance to clean house getting rid of un-needed camping gear, & all for a good cause we all belive in. Karen & I sincerely thank everyone who participated.
