    Thats great news about the donation. I'm up for what ever the rest of you decide. If he needs a computer maybe we could sell more tickets and get him a mini or something. Just let me know what we are gonna do.

    I'm going to coordinate with macjuicy23 and RIDE to decide what to do. We do need a decision on how to proceed. Personally I'm going for a resolution this morning. (It's 7:30AM here.)

    Just an idea. There has to be SOMETHING to put the money towards...
    You know John more than we do. Like cheesy says, is there anything the money could get him that he'd enjoy on top of having his dream Xbox? You alone can tell us what is best.

    Or like babarnette suggested, a Mac Mini? An iPhone? His very own iPod Touch? Or something like that?

    If there are a few bucks missing, maybe we could let the raffle continue till that amount is reached...

    It's your call macjuicy. We await your decision.

    Not to take away from the donor's generosity, but what if there are warranty issues? You don't want to give him an expensive gift that could be useless if something were to happen to it. Let's face it, being a Microsoft product, it very well could happen.

    Maybe the donor would be willing to donate just the extras. That way we could get John a brand new XBox with the money we have raised. He gets the protection of the factory warranty and he gets the pleasure of breaking the seal on the packaging.

    The raffle could continue as planned. There aren't any further issues to solve.

    Just an idea... Whatever you decide is fine with me.

    Well, Myself, Mathogre and RIDE have been discussing the raffle situation and we have come up with a solution....
    Even though we are receiving this incredible donation from this member, we feel the raffle should go on. You have all been such a major factor in making this happen that I feel this person would of never made this donation if this thread would of never been started and been so positive.
    The prize will still be the IPOD Touch, but the 420.00 will now be used for the following:

    1. Paying the shipping costs on the Xbox gear being Sent
    2. We will buy John his Own IPOD Touch that he could use whenever he goes to the hospital or just wants to hear some tunes.

    Every Penny of it will be used for John.... Period any Money left over will be Donated to The American Cancer Fund in the Name of MAC-Forums...

    Since the use of the Money has changed, if there is anyone who would like to back out of the Raffle can do so without feeling bad at all.... The great thing about all of this is that we will now be giving him an even bigger gift which is amaizing!!!!
    They will be sending me the Xbox and accessories by next week, I will not be presenting John with anything until I purchase the IPOD Touch with the money collected.

    I want you all to know that you have all been incredible through all of this and I'm proud to be part of these boards... You should all pat yourselves on the back and feel proud for what you have accomplished...
    Even though the person donating wishes to remain anonymous I would like to thank you for making this bigger and better than we could of ever expected....

    Thank you all from the bottom of my heart, (I have a lump in my throat, and a tear in my eye typing this...) with all the bad things happening in this world its nice we can do this........ God Bless you all.....

    So we're on. Yay!!!! Here's the status.

    The drawing is still for the iPod touch and the Store Credit of $33.48. Nothing changes here.

    I think we still have 4 tickets remaining, so now's your chance.

    We also have the raffle software to be scrutinized, tested, et al.
