I had the same thoughts Ben when I saw that commercial.
Marty was a great guy and a huge contributor to our hobby for many years. Great idea Ben!
Just wanted to update everybody that donated This is the first time I have used GoFundMe and might be my last It has been a nightmare trying to withdraw the funds but I believe after about 100 emails and conversations it is finally in the process I have closed the account so it will not accept anymore donations. The Toy Train Museum wont discuss the designs until they get a check So hopefully as soon as it hits the club account our esteemed Treasurer Al will cut a check and send it on its way to Pennsylvania. Still hoping the dedication ceremony in October will be doable. I will continue to update everybody as we go.
Thank you thank you thank you to all that have donated to this
Interesting observation Ben, something that I wouldn't have expected. I suppose if they keep the money, it makes the site more profitable.
Great job, Ben! I agree with John, I wouldn't have expected that, but I have had no experience with Go Fund Me.
