I'm guessing you are not going to get a lot of people willing to fork up that kind of cash for this, and I honestly didn't even realize there was an auction until now (even though I see it on post one now). I'm not sure yet-another-thread would help.

Even the go fund me donations are a bit disappointing to me - would have expected far more people to be appreciative of his efforts. Maybe you need to push the civil forfeiture angle more.

Anyway, bump.

Agree, we ordered 200 badges... And we are barely a quarter of the way to our goal... Anyway, if we can contribute enough for Will to take his family on a nice vacation that is all I want to do. Funny how a guy can sacrifice his job, family and life to support those who need it but when it really counts we cannot contribute back. Thank you to those who have contributed and the badges should be here in 3-4 weeks and maybe that will help generate some interest as well.

I think you need to spread the advertising around. There are 32 donations so far, which is less than the amount of trucks seized....

Will should trademark the "Defender of Defenders" saying.

I'm planning on ordering one on payday. That's Thursday.
Sorry. I'm one of those that lives paycheck to paycheck. These trucks are hungry little buggers.

Not everyone can afford a badge or to donate, but that doesn't mean we can't support Will. It starts with sharing the links and spreading the word. I would be happy to give badges to ppl that cannot afford to donate but will help where they can.

I think once our trucks start arriving home (maybe this week) it might help generate more funds.
I will post here (as well as other threads) with pics when it arrives.
Also, there will be a Fox News story soon.
