The HLAAA looks good, but not for me at the moment.

I know it’s not much but will try and donate a few dollars to the effort in a few days.

Dale, what if you donate 1/3 of the funds via Walmart and the rest elsewhere?
When assisting with disaster recovery in the past raising funds was never really an issue, the problem was getting enough feet on the ground, in the right areas, without bureaucrats and egos getting in the way.

it is CW

Is the Acebeam EC35 only in black, or are the other colors available?

Astrolux S42 219C $25.00 shipped to ConUS (Pay according to instructions in original post above)

It will come in original box with original accessories, 2 each AWT 18350 850MAH batteries, and the Manker holster as pictured. The spare battery fits in the bottom of the holster. It has the improved USB cover and the longer body. I shortened the base spring before the new body came, butt it makes secure contact, and the AWTs are not dented. The light has been used very little butt I only warrant it to be as I describe. And that it will light up, not like the original one. Wink

Ill take it if its still available.

see previous post. thanks.

I just saw this thread, so I haven’t donated or bought anything yet. But, I do have an opinion (surprise! surprise! Silly ) about where to best put the money. I don’t trust Wal-Mart, whatever they say. I know that Franklin Graham’s organization Samaritan’s Purse has feet on the ground and is helping real people. I’d vote to give the money to them. They know how to do the “real” disaster relief/aid work. I’d be afraid Wal-Mart might filter the donations through some “Foundation” which would reduce the effectiveness of the funds.

OK, I’ll take it and swap emitters if still available.

BTW, when sending funds should we use ‘For goods’ or what?

My 2¢ (preference) on where the money goes: something local, volunteer driven, with immediate impact.

Ultimately, it’s up to DB Custom to choose what he feels is the best option. I’m good with whatever is chosen.

Just saw this thread, too, and have the same misgivings. Lots of “charities” sprouting up with hands out looking for donations, and who knows how much actually gets to those who need it. Really need someone local who knows who’s doing the most good.

Ummm, no paypal here, any other way to do it? Plastic? Money-order? Etc.?

I imagine you could PM, get an address and send a check if all else fails.

Yes, local is usually best. But, I’d want to know that the “local” group was well organized, and had a good (effective) use for the money. One of the benefits of long established relief/aid organizations is that they already know what they’re doing, what kind of help is needed the most, what logistics work best for distributing the aid, etc.

As you said, it’s up to DB Custom. I’ll trust him to make the best decision. Innocent

Thanks for doing this.

A suggestion.. You might want to change the wording to say the proceeds will be sent to aid the victims. I thought that people were buying lights to be sent to Houston.

“Lumintop has very graciously donated a very nice assortment of lights that you can buy at a very reduced price which will then be sent to aid the victims of Hurricane Harvey. “

Just to add to this, Samaritan’s Purse is one of the best charities out there when it comes to transparency & making sure funds actually get spent where they are supposed to.

I haven’t seen any other posts interested in it. I think DB is struggling with his recent ailment. I don’t think there would be a problem iffn you went ahead with your Paypal purchase. If you would like to PM me your mailing info I could get the package ready and then I’d just need confirmation from DB that he received the funds. Thanks for your contribution.

It’s nice to help but for example these folks https://www.google.si/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/world/2017/aug/30/mumbai... would need the money much more than the americans.

Are you guys still waiting for confirmation before sending money? I asked about a copper tool AAA a few comments back, but didn’t get a reply. I know there’s only 10, so I wanted to make sure there are some left before sending money.

It seems Dale is not well.
He’s been off line for more than a day now.

Relax, just check the time Dale has been online last
If you ask for something and he has not logged on AFTER you asked it, he has not even read it Wink
If you have posted, this topic is also a public record and it will all work out.
It is hard enough as it is, heavy things, heavy topic, good action.
So let’s give the man some time to respond AFTER he has read it, expect his inbox to have lot and lots of PMs, so even if he is online it might very well take a while, just no worries Smile
