Yeah its very sad they are having to close down. I found it kind of funny how everyone *said* they dontated after its announced they where closing they got over 1000 dollars in the 2 days when I look at it this morning. Now if they could have those kind of donations on a daily basis it would work. Maybe Brett should talk to them about how to get people to donate.
