Also, I appreciate the comments, but if you have something to say that is against or different than what the organization is trying to do, please feel free to pm me and we can discuss the manner, I had to put the thread on close due to some comments. Again, I am open to convo, just not that would be distracting to the issue at hand.

Hey guys.

Jayyo here,

Recently, an issue was brought to my attention, and it is something that hits close to home with me, and I decided that I wanted to do something about it and help out those who also have the same beliefs as I do.

So as many of you may know by now. I have a deep love for wolves. They are a creature that I have always been mystified by since a very young age. There is something about them that I find truly magical and special and they are more then just a “favorite animal” but a creature that I feel a deep connection with.

In recent years, different regions of the Unites States have been trying to allow for the killing of wolves and sadly, many regions have succeeded in doing so. In Idaho, over 400 wolves were killed since the species was delisted, and similar types of movements are going to congress to allow for these terrible killings in other regions of the US.

An organization known as Defenders Of Wildlife have been working hard over the years to protect these amazing creatures and their efforts have helped save many from a terrible fate.

Please check out this site for more info regarding what they do and also the importance of wolves for our planet:

My friends and myself have helped donate in the past to this organization, but I thought it would be fun to have an auction to raise some funds to donate to this cause. It would allow for one of you to feel good about donating to this great cause, as well as receiving something awesome to throw!

So, what is up for grabs?


That there is a Mint Yoyofactory G Funk, not just any G Funk However, this G funk happens to be signed by the amazing thrower, and awesome friend Gentry Stein. I am listing this for auction with 100% of all proceeds going direct to Defenders in support of their cause and efforts. Along with the yoyo, you will receive strings, and a nice fluffy wuff plush! ^ ^.

I will be listing this auction in exactly 24 hours from the posting of this thread so it gets some views, and the auction will be up for 10 days giving many others the chance to check it out.

In the future, I will also be holding other auctions to support the cause so keep an eye on this thread.

Thanks for looking guys, and of course, if your heart feels the same way I do for these amazing creatures, donate! There is a donation page on the site to do so directly as well.


Awroo.

Does anyone remember who posted the link to eBay for the charity to save the wolves week before last? He was selling an autographed G Funk and wolf stuffed animal. I won the eBay auction and wanted to get in touch with him here as well.

Thanks!

How is the fund raising going? Is there anything more I can do?
I also have a special place in my heart for wolves. And I thought you might like this, I know it needs a really good touch-up, but there ya go.

That is awesome!
And the funds were sent off to DOW already, hoping to do more stuff like this in the future though!
