Heads-up...PayPal does not support making donation payments from Japanese based accounts...not sure if other countries may also be affected.

Don't be a muppet like me and put the pound sign before amount, it won't work.

 

 

Sorted now and for a good cause.   :thumbsup:

Panicked when it said Paypal, as I'm a thicky when it comes to that carry on, plus I can't remember my password, but managed to use a card, so money on the way 

 

Cheers Mike for sorting this out  :thumbsup:

 

Lets hope we can bring a little comfort to his family & close friends.

Mike,

the donation page link doesn't seem to work - just sends me to the home page of the florist?

Try clicking on the link again Rich, don't click on the Skokie link, just scroll down to the bottom, & there is a donate box in the bottom left hand corner, where you put an amount (no £ signs) & then it takes you to the next page

Hope it works this time :thumbsup:

Mike, I've only just seen this and would have made a small donation - is it too late?

 

Cheers

Not had a chance to donate until now, maybe any further money could go to one of the charities that has been discussed?

On behalf of Soul Source members I am sending flowers to Chicago for Bob Abrahamians funeral on Tue 10 June 2014

I am using https://www.skokieflorist.net/ as this has been suggested and is close to the funeral home.

As people have expressed a wish to donate, I have set this donation fund up

Due to the time limits will close this at 9am uk time Monday and I will then order flowers from this page that reflect the amount raised and the ceromony.

https://www.skokieflo...-87_144678c.asp

A simple message on behalf of all members will be added,

If any cash is left over then I will pass onto a charity of the familys choice

Donations can be made now va this feature

(If rather you can donate via paypal to telasource@btinternet.com but the above method is prefered )

Do suggest that donations are made bearing in mind the actual cost of the flowers and that this is just a simple way of the site saying fairwell to Bob

This has been setup in a quick but hopefully correct manner.

Do ask that if have any questions or concerns then please do pm me

regards

Mike

 

 

 
Another for info post
 
Have just spoke to the florist and they have confirmed the order
The total donations made were 45
Thats  40 via the site system
5 via straight paypal method
 
45 donations totaling £434
paypal fees - due to the in- site system  paypal fees were payable (3.4% + 20p per transaction.) on each donation thru site
to keep things easier to track etc  i myself will cover these fees as my donation towards the flowers
 
That means the total collected was £434
 
 I have ordered the flowers here
Lily and Rose Tribute Spray - Standard:     $179.95
Wire Fee:     $0.00 Delivery Fee     $7.95 Service Fee:    $0.00
Tax:     $16.20 Total Order:     $204.10
Once i get a uk  figure from my bank on the £ value
I will then work out the total remaining and then pay this total  to a charity of the familys choice
(which is still being decided.)
 
As a matter of record , all the transactions are available on request if anyone wishes to see them, for privacy reasons i would have to edit the names out or get permissions before posting a complete list. so can post but would be a delay
 
All who made donations should have a record in their customer area - here
 
there was a small amount of payments which were either cancelled or not finalised during the process 
if not sure again these can be checked via the link above to see if were paid
 
The message on the flowers was
 
Bob (Boba)
You will be sadly missed but the knowledge and the passion
that you shared with us will always be remembered
With love & respect, the members of the Soul Source web site
 
 
on behalf of the site and all members like to say many thanks to all who donated
and thanks to Phylis for the initial suggestion
 
thanks again

Well done Mike for sorting and well done all for donating.

 

A fitting gesture from our (not so little) little global community.

HI Mike, like the others above I missed this, so if you were putting a balance to a relevant charity I would like to contribute. Apologies for extra hassle, great job on this.

I know that Some members still hope to donate but isnt So very apt that there were 45 donations

 

Many Thanks for sorting this Mike

Just a quick heads up for those wishing to donate, but don't have Paypal...

 

Worry not, you can pay by credit card/debit card via Paypal, without holding a current Paypal account.

ok got the £ total for the flowers and so can give an updated summary
Amount from last post of the current total =£434
(45 donations totaling £434)
 
Since then have had another 9 donations of a total of £173
 
Total donated CARD PAYMENT TO SKOKIE FLORIST,204.10 USD, RATE 0.59/GBP ON 09-06-2014 NON-STERLING TRANSA £125.12
 
So the current running total  = £434+ £173 = £607 - £125.12 = .£481.88
 
am still awaiting a nominated charity from the family - once have got such will close the fund and pay what ever is the current running total in
thanks

Bobs sister informed me yesterday that the family "are planning to set up a fund in Bob's name, which at the moment we think would be used to help archive and move his collection to an institution. The legal paperwork will still take a couple weeks"

 

Once get any more details/info will update

 archive and move his collection to an institution

I'm glad they're thinking of that. I always think it's a shame when a collection gets broken up.

Money or no money always a lot of sweat went into it which shouldn't be denied. In this case A LOT. :thumbsup:

The OOwins an AAhins going on in there ( warts an all ) if it gets to public viewing, Priceless!!

a catch up

am closing the donations now

the total raised was 

£627 from 56 donations 

as stated the cost of the flowers was £125.12

So this leaves £501.88 (£627 - £125.12)

 

For a matter of record will post up a list of all the donations and the date but as this was set up in rush due to the time limitations, do feel there may be privacy issues if posted more info than this.

 

This all means that the donations are now closed and once the new trust/fund is open i will then pay the sum of £501.88 into it

 

Reference the fund, I have had news of Jenny (Bobs sister) and will post this news up later 

 

Again many thanks to all who donated

Here's the latest score on the fund from Jenny (Bobs Sister) ...
 
Jenny has informed me that she has finally got legal authority over Bobs
accounts and is planning to setup a on-profit unincorporated charity fund
in the next few days.
 
Jenny also mentions that the planning of storing, archiving , digitizing
etc has started. This will all take a while but the donations will be extremely helpful in this process
 
And also Jenny  passed on that plans for the secured future if Bobs
website are in place,  include a move to a new server so there should be no
danger of it being took down.
 
Also planned is the addition of more archived shows - prior to 2006
 
 
Ok thats the current score as get more news/info will post up
Cheers

Jenny will pass on shortly details of the fund including how people can make future donations

As the site donation side has now all been squared away  then would just like to say again...
