Epicurus Emmons Flower Sales - 25L FLOWER WATCH!

Up until the memorial afterwhich the dispensers can be removed from the YCs with a big thank you i am pleased to say many many kind and generous sailors are contributing here and wearing their epi remembrance flowers with pride - please keep wearing it until the memorial and during it as it is a conversation piece and starter and of course afterward leave it in your inventories that you may happen upon it from time to time as a constant reminder of him :)

some are buying more than one and this is great - it is a glorified tip jar so you can buy 10 if you like.

in less than 48hrs sales have reached 2000L that may not sound a lot but they are only 25L each so it shows just how many we have sold so far.

Lets make it 20,000 we have plenty of time.

At the memorial we will also place a tip jar too. And then present the sum raised to Pippa as a contribution from us as a sailing community to her towards the real life flowers. For the sake of openness i will post the running total here every few days or so because that's important a bit like a Telethon and of course ask for more money LOL as you do. Plus you may feel its not enough and push people more to contribute!

I think if we had of been in Epi's position it would be nice to know we would be loved and remembered so fondly and by so many in world friends and acquaintances i know Pippa appreciates the support

Please give generously and if you see Pippa have a little chat and some kind words Xxx :'*)

sold another 4 in the last 2 days - the initial push has clearly dropped because most who knew him have purchased them

but they are still trickling in and of course we hope to raise a little more on day of his memorial

Approx 114 so sold far

this is posted due to the nature of the donations

clearly trust and transparency are important with something like this

The full list of all those who donated will be made available to the donation box hosts (The YCs who allowed these to be placed).

I know it sounds a bit odd over the amount concerned, but there are some dodgy characters in sl who would take advantage of our good nature and it is important that you trust not only me and ME/WOOT MALLs reputation but also those generous YC Commodores and helpers who have given their time and space for this. So if at any future time we need to do something similar for another worthy cause we have a system of 'transparency' and trust with any monies concerned

hope this helps :)

keep buying them ;) and wear them until the memorial please :)Xxx
