Urgent kitesurfer community help needed !

Postby Fin » Wed Nov 29, 2017 12:55 am

Hi, guys, my friend local kitesurfer from Poznan, Poland needs our help. He is fighting for his 6 years old son's life (brain cancer).

He needs to gather 500k EUR very fast for last chance treatment in Ohio, US. The response from our local community is amazing. During one day we gathered 100k EUR! But the time is running out. Every EUR/USD counts.

Link for donation: https://www.siepomaga.pl/en/ocalic-tymka

Our last video, his father is flying North https://vimeo.com/170987696, since then he is basically living in hospital. We want to see his son on the water withing next 5 years!

Thanks for your help!

Robert

Some of Tymek's father closest friends we were saving money for new kite, board, harness ... You know what the old one will still do the job :thumb:

We have got 300k EUR! 200k EUR to go! We need to keep momentum going.

It's in polish zloty with ex rate 4:1 so we need 2 milion polish zloty.

Boards on board. The Poznan snowboarder community is also helping a lot. As it is right now winter in Poland we cannot meet at our spots but we are bringing 30 tons of snow to the one of Poznań city park and organize the event on Sunday at 13.00. At the end of the event we want to annouce that money is collected! and they can book flight to Ohio.

One more time thank you very much for help and we are asking for little more ...

The places we've been and the places we will visit again wih Tymek, are showing us great suport. Thank you!

Has anyone done the HW to verify all of this (internet scams are rough nowadays)? We could all send in 10 USD or 10 EUR, adds up quickly - but we meed someone with a long history on this board to do the homework

Confirmation from my side too. I am here (mostly reading) about 10 years.
Siepomaga Foundation is known in Poland. They have verified this action.
On the other hand we (me and Fin - Robert) know personally father of poor Tymek.
You can help without any doubts. And then meet Tymek on water in a few years.

My nick on polish forum is the same like here: wiktorek, about 676 posts ...
