Kinsley ThomasWong 9/2: Wine for your donation at 50% off!

Postby marina » Mon Jul 26, 2010 7:33 pm

Update 9/2/10:

TWO GREAT WINES OFFERED AT 50% OFF RETAIL WITH 100% OF PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT THE KINSLEY THOMASWONG DONATION FUND

Image
Dan Tudor, owner & winemaker of the prestigious Tudor & Radog Wines and a local SLO kiter, has very generously donated 100 cases of wine with 100% of proceeds going to the Kinsley ThomasWong Donation Fund!

These are superior wines with high review ratings from a preeminent winemaker. The Radog Sauvignon Blanc and Radog Dry Rosé (excellent for a Sangria party!) are both nice summer wines. We are offering these cases at approximately a 50% discount from retail prices at $109 per case for Radog Sauvignon Blanc and $74 per case for the Radog Rosé (plus applicable shipping costs on both wines priced by state or region).

The offer is available only in 'case or cases' for shipping in select states within the US listed on the website. Thank you Dan!

For more info, see http://kinsleydonation.weebly.com/wine- ... chase.html

Enjoy!

Update 8/26/10:

Pleased to announce that Taizen arrived Aug 26th at 4:45am and is 6 pounds, 12 ounces, 18 inches long. Jamie and baby are doing well and look at the proud new papa!

Also as any FYI, we have two new fundraising efforts in the works as we have determined that Kinsley and Jamie's out of pocket expenses for year one will be at least $85K.

1) Launching sometime in next five days: Dan Tudor of Radog and Tudor Wines, a local kiteboarder in SLO County, donated 100 CASES of wine with ALL profits to benefit Kinsley. We will be offering this at 50% off retail for a case. Wine is available in US only. Will post here again when this is ready as well as Kinsley's website http://kinsleydonation.weebly.com/index.html

2) Tenatively planning a big welcome home party in SLO county (Kinsley's home town) for Kinsley, Jamie and their new son Taizen with bands, bbq and raffle mid Oct to mid Nov sometime. This event will have a virtual participation function with live webcam and ability to 'donate' to bbq or buy raffle tickets online.

Many of you have asked how you can best support Kinsley of Xtreme Big Air as he, his wife Jamie, and family work through his rehabilitation efforts.

To be proactive on behalf of the ThomsWong family, several of Kinsley's friends have taken the initiative to reach out to the local, as well as global kiteboarding and paragliding communities for help. Though Kinsley has insurance, it is 30% co-pay until a certain amount paid is reached. Meanwhile the costs associated with the medevac, ICU, surgeries and upcoming extended-stay treatment in the spine care recovery unit in Santa Clara have and will continue to be astronomical. Also, some costs of care and recovery simply won’t be covered by insurance, while long-term care needs could be a distinct possibility.

Many of us have been graced by Kinsley's selflessness, kiteboard/paraglide advocacy, passion for the ocean/air, and unique jovial spirit.

In particular, the kiteboarding and paragliding communities are considered Kinsley’s extended family. At the same time, we all realize that while we fly or kite solo, kiting and paragliding is a community sport where we have all likely been helped out of a jam by another at some time. Kinsley has elevated so many lives and has promoted both sports passionately, including the annual KiteXpo (Expo) in Pismo Beach. We would like to give back and hope you will join us in our outreach effort by donating to his health and recovery costs. Please also help us spread the word of this effort through your own networks.

We have created a website dedicated to Kinsley’s progress. http://kinsleydonation.weebly.com/index.html Here, we will keep you all posted on Kinsley’s recovery progress on the Kinsley Condition Log and Blog links on the website’s menu. You can make comments on the blog link, or, post your own thoughts, photos, stories and electronic greetings (these are great to show Kinsley!) on a new facebook page we created just for this purpose (Friends of Kinsley ThomasWong) http://www.facebook.com/pages/Friends-o ... =ts&v=wall. Under the “what you can do tab” on the website, you will find information on how you can help support Kinsley and Jamie through the Kinsley Thomas Wong Donation Fund,

Contributions can be made by check, paypal or directly to Bank of America. Unfortunately, donations to one individual for any philanthropic purpose, such as illness, are not tax deductable. But, donations are considered gifts and are not taxable income to the beneficiary. Additionally, unless the donation is specified ‘anonymous,’ at some point we will acknowledge those that contributed individually or through businesses (no amounts specified). All other information is confidential.

Donation checks can deposited in any Bank of America branch for the Kinsley ThomasWong Donation Fund.

If you want to send a check by mail, please make checks payable to Kinsley ThomasWong Donation and send to:
Melinda Thomas
26 El Viento
Pismo Beach, CA 93449

Thank you all for your kindness and support.

All our best,

Marina Chang, Steve Davies & Kipley Lytel

Marina, that paypal link gives me a fatal error.

Maybe this one works for others: LINK
