Quote
Dearest DDF Family!

I cannot begin to express my gratitude and thanks for the outpouring of love which I see, I am humbled by my fellow DDF'ers who took it upon themselves to join the fundraising effort and help me in my time of need. It gladdens my heart to be part of such a family, who will go out of their way to help their fellows in need, whether it is financial or otherwise. I will be forever grateful to all of you, to those who donated the prizes, to those who donated money, and to those who made this a reality.

Thanks again!



What's this all about?
If you've been following this thread you may know that a longtime DDF'er who has a young family was arrested for being on the scene at the time of the sting operation.  Many of you have probably even met him in the real world. Several generous DDF'ers have donated prizes to be raffled off to bring attention to the defense fund created on his behalf.

Part of me says yeah, go for it, the more the merrier.
But another part says let's wait another couple of hours, see how much more comes in from the main site before nudging people...

Might sound like spam but it's not (and financially speaking I'm losing on it)

I've posted this Keytrade deal by that will start soon (within a week they told me).

To be illegible, you need a non-USA passport, and non-USA address (residing there).

For everyone that tells me now that they will sign up when the promo is active, I donate $50 to the cause, and the person will receive a completely free Euro account with Euro 30 in it.

Can one open an account if they have a US Passport as well?
How does one cash out the Euro?
