    Default I have a question for ya'll

    I have a friend over on the AT forum who has fallen upon hard times, he lost his job and had to sell off all his gear to pay the bills. He is back to work, working at a game call company in Co. and is just makining ends meet but just informed me his pay checks have started bouncing.
    I have not met him in person, just on AT, he was/is a staff shooter for Harvest Time Archery but have come to call him a friend of sorts.
    I would realy like to help him out in some way but don't know if in doing so would hurt his pride or something.
    I am in no way someone that could be called well off, I work hard for what I have. But it cuts deep to have someone I call a friend fall on hard times. I have been working 12 hour days and have a couple hundred stashed away for a rainy day that I would like to send him along with a PSE Nova I have that is all setup and ready to go. I would just like to be able to help him and his family in some small way.
    Do you all thinks this is over steping any boundries?
    Thanks for listening.

    i think it is one heck of a good thing if you do do it,but if you dont want him to say no to your offer then do as i have done in the past when my wife and i had a fair amount of extra cash.this is what i did for a best friend of mine who fell on some hard time and just wanted to vent but did not want a hand out,we sent him cash in a box with no return adress and a letter,in short it said

    i know how it is and i have been in your shoes.please dont try and return the gift you have been given,please dont think into it,this is wht it is.a gift from some some one who knows the hard time and the good.

    the letter was a bit longer but you get the jist.

    Don, I think that would be incredible. I would love to do something like that someday. I think it really says something about your character. Like GD said, you could do it without a return adress.

    Don,i've worn both sets of shoes. I've been on the giving end and the receiving end. just send the gift. no RA as stated. the feeling you get from helping someone is like nothing else. and your friend will never look at things the same. in your letter, tell him the only repayment you ask is that he help someone else in need someday. Besides,'tis the season.
