Hi! My name is Dovi or Dovinian, and I've been a long time member of TEST and I was on CSM7 as an alternate.
For the last 3 years, my family has raised money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in the form of a boat race for fun.
Link here: http://www.leukemiacup.org/pages/wa/sea15/TLehfeldt
An anonymous TEST member has also matched my entire donation page dollar for dollar the day before the event, he's a supercool bro.
Well this year we came up with the idea of if my page reaches $20,000 I'll log in my titan and let all of EVE come blow it up in a celebration. In reality, it needs to his $10,000, then the dude is on board to match it to $20,000 and bam, titan destruction time.
To make life simpler I'm going to link a bunch of text from the TEST forums, it should all still apply.
Last year for 2014, my family and yacht club hosted the event in our hometown of Bellingham, WA, but unfortunately this year we couldn't get the approval and buy-in from the yacht club.
HAVE NO FEAR, WE'RE STILL GOING TO SEATTLE TO DO IT. Seattle has been an awesome event and is much larger than the one we threw in Bellingham. More boats, more people, more >money raised and a lot of that translates to more fun.
Backstory, in 2007 my brother was diagnosed with Leukemia on his wife's birthday. After a long and hard 2 year battle he was officially in remission and is healthy and living his dream of being >a stunt man in movies and TV Shows. His latest project has been Arrow, which has been a ton of fun.
My family feels strongly that the Leukemia and Lymphoma society is doing great things for research and advancing the techniques for curing these terrible blood cancers.Cool things that have happened:
- Twisted got a ******* Vinyl Decal on our main sail of TEST's logo. It's falling off now, but still mostly. there.
- TEST Alliance Please ignore was an officially accepted sponsor of the entire event in Seattle
- Two years in a row an awesome anonymous TEST dude matched TEST's donations dollar for dollar.
- I get drunk and make a fool of myself every year.
- Our boat has placed in the top 3 for team donations every year
- 2013 I got 3rd highest individual donations
- Our family was featured in Sailing World Magazine for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's ad
I'm posting this to Reddit to try to get us over the hump in the final two weeks. I'd love to celebrate with ALL of EVE and blow up my titan.
Anything you can donate would be greatly appreciated! It's been a great year so far but I'd like to see what we can do to get over the hump and finish it up! I'm always available to talk about how Leukemia or Lymphoma has affected you, or even how it's affected me. I'm not shy about it at all.http://www.leukemiacup.org/pages/wa/sea15/TLehfeldt
Raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, if my page hits $10,000 By June 4 or 5 it'll be doubled to $20,000 by an awesome dude. Then we get to blow up my titan to celebrate. Help me celebrate and set me free from the shackles of titan ownership.
