    All I can say is this thread was AWESOME! I am closing the books on my business for '03 today. I factored the average daily view count and added three days to the 5660 view count I saw this morning. The total check is for $1,887.50 that will go in the mail today.

    Please visit my final post on the $.25 MAW view thread.

    FCHATTERS are the best!!!!!!

    Peters, congratulations...! You are the man for doing something like this for Make A Wish and for all the kids that you're going to help... There should be a FerrariChat page in your honor... You are a real class act and i'm honored to know you... :)

    The cool thing with MAW is that their overhead is about 20%. This is VERY low for a large organization Vs many that are 50% plus! They really do good!

    Few F-chatters know that one our own, Mandy Reimert, is in charge of fund raising for the Houston chapter of M-A-W. She also drives a 360 Challenge car..............

    Peter,

    Great call on your part to put the donation toward M-A-W. Before Tony Nevotti's (sales manager at FoDallas) daughter Allison passed, M-A-W had contacted him on setting up a wish for her. I do not know if they had opportunity to take advantage it. They help so many kids...........now you have helped them help more!!!!

    Here is a nice email I received from the MAW SF office!

    Hi Peter,

    I just returned from my vacation in Florida, and received your message and
    contribution. What a nice surprise! Thank you for your clever fundraising
    idea - and what a successful one - I'm impressed!

    Thanks for your support. We fulfiled 24 wishes during the December holiday,
    so there are many happy Make-A-Wish children right now!

    I hope you have a healthy and prosperous New Year!!!

    Kara

    One of our members that I will not name (he sells batteries) dropped me an email stating he wants to send an additional check to MAW (what a guy!). Here is the MAW address I sent the check to:

    Kara Mullen
    Development Officer
    Greater Bay Area Make-A-Wish Foundation
    120 Montgomery Street, Suite 1080
    San Francisco, CA 94104
    415-402-2766
    www.makewish.org

    I am sure that Kara would be very gracious for any extra donations. You may wish to earmark the check FChat MAW donation. I invited Kara to log on and say hi to us!
