Buy a model right now and help Hugo!
« on: October 18, 2015, 05:13:59 PM »


Hugo got hit by a car, and suffered a broken spine.
He's had successful surgery and is on the mend.
But now the bill has to be paid!

Please check out the above thread.

And please, go to ecardmodels and buy one of my models.
(In case you don't know, I sell models under the Designer's name Dave Winfield, at ecardmodels.com)

I am donating all proceeds of all sales (of my models) for October
to help pay for the surgery costs to help poor Hugo.
It won't be a huge amount, but with your help, it could be a lot more.
Chris Gutzmer (the owner of ecardmodels.com) has been a valued friend to me for more than five years
and a dog in need is all it takes for me to break down completely.

So, if you had any thought of picking up one of my models,
why not do it now...and help a good cause.

You can also click on any model at www.papermodelshop.com
and it will transfer you over to ecardmodels to make the purchase.

Time to follow up on this story and give out some thanks.

Hugo is doing great...if you haven't already heard.
Three weeks after surgery for a broken back and he's walking well (with a little help of course).
Its amazing what we can do for animals today (if we really want to).

Anyway, I want to thank all those who stepped up to my challenge to buy one of my models in October.
I have donated 100% of sales to Chris Gutzmer at ecardmodels to go towards paying for Hugo's surgery.
I must say, October sales were great...probably my best month ever!!

Obviously the money raised so far does not cover all of Chris' expenses,
so if you still want to donate something just head over to his goFundme page and do that.

A number of other designers also offered up their October sales at ecardmodels...kudos to them too!

Once again, BIG THANKS to all of you that purchased one of my kits.

Now get out there and buy another model.
I just bought a new (used) car and I need some sales this month to pay for it!
