Donation Update

Firstly, thanks to anyone who has donated to Angels Way through the Global Giving website. If yiu're not aware what I'm talking about, here's the link to that post.

Now then, if you have donated and wish to be considered for the poster/T-Shirt giveaway, would you mind doing the following:

1. Send me an email at worldoffroynlaven@sbcglobal.net and please provide your name. That's all I need. I can then check the database and find our top six donors via the Froynlaven website.

But...remember, you still have until the 29th of December to make that much needed donation.

Okay? Cool.

Now then, I had mentioned there were some big changes here at the Rugg homestead.

My wife's mother will be moving in with us at the end of the month and I am losing my home office. Said home office has been with me for 16 years. I noodled many a Freakazoid idea there. I also noodled many other ideas there. Some were good. Some were better left un-noodled. It is from that very same office I have done all of my bligging. Alas, it is not meant to be anymore.

However, we are finally getting cable. So...

But we Ruggs are an industrious lot. As I write this, a 10X14' barn sits on humble earth in my back yard. It was built in one day. Fer serious. Here's a pic of that momentous 8 hours...


This week electrical shall be installed. Then drywall. Floors. My VO booth will be finished at the end of the month. And a new office will be ready for a new year of bligging.

I shall share pictures tomorrow of the future home of Froynlaven.

HELP ME (AND GET A LITTLE SOMETHING IN RETURN)

I don't know if you've heard, but Christmas is just around the corner. It is. And, we can all get something.

So, first I'll tell you what I want. As some of you know, I've been on the board of Angels Way Maternity Home for six years. Angels Way is an amazing place that provides a refuge for homeless, pregnant women here in the Los Angeles area. This wonderful home helps these women give their babies the ultimate gift...Life. I could go on, but then I'd start weeping. I already saw War Horse over the weekend. I'm all weeped out.

But...I digress. Angels Way is now listed on the Global Giving website. And they are waiting for a donation from you. More to the point...they need a donation from you. And it couldn't be any easier.

Ready...here's the Link. I think you're all extremely intelligent so I won't go into details on how to donate...suffice to say they take credit cards and such. Here's the link again. And...just in case you missed it...here it is one more time.

If you can give anything...anything will be gladly taken.

Oh, and, just so it makes me look good with my fellow board members...right below the DONATE button you'll see a tab that says, "In honor of". Click that and put my name. That's kind of important because it will show my fellow board members that I actually do things. (Which I generally don't...but am...now.)

And now, the something for YOU.

The 7 persons who donate the most money by using that dandy "in honor of button"and specifying me...Paul Rugg...will receive a special thank you from me* in the form of...

Back in 1995, when Animaniacs made the switch to the WB...and on the occasion of Freakazoid's premier...a special poster was commissioned. I used to have gobs. Now, I only have five left. They are slightly tattered. But...they've made it 16 years. They need new homes. I will gladly autograph them.

Here's a small video showing how neat they are.

But wait...I did say the top seven donors...and yet, I only have six posters. Sooo...

The TOP DONOR who uses the "in honor of" button and specifies Paul Rugg...will get this...

So, that shirt awaits the top donor who...here we go again...uses the in honor of button and specifies me. That way, we can keep track.

Here are some rules. Donations need to be made by December 29th. Those who follow directions well, and are the top seven donors will get my special thanks with wonderful poster...or a shirt.

In event of a tie, we'll take the donations in the order they were received. Cool?

Now, I'm just doing this so ya'll will give to Angels Way. They need it. And I'll be happy for anything you can give. And, the only way I know you gave is if you do it through the "in honor of" button thingy.

I know things are tight for everyone. But every little bit counts.

Okay, there are some big doings at the Rugg household. Changes are happening. Said changes have kept me pretty busy. More on that anon.

Here's a hint.

Barn.

Thank you!!!!!
