This is for an extremely good cause. Here's a quick background:

Randy and Channing, thru the Randy McMichael Foundation, are signing 8x10's tonight at a high school basketball game to raise money for a Boca teen who was seriously hurt in a drive-by shooting. The kid lies in a coma and his family has no insurance. Here's the full story in case you haven't seen it already.

http://www.palmbeachpost.com/dolphins/content/sports/epaper/2006/12/07/a5c_HS_lubin_1207.html

The event is happening tonight, but Randy and Channing will give signed 8x10's to anyone who wants to donate via the internet.

All of the Dolfan sites across the internet are getting involved. My man Doug over at Phinatics.com is organizing this thing. If you want to donate, you'll get a photo. The autographed 8x10's are $20 a set (your get one of each player). Shipping is $4.

To donate, go to www.paypal.com and send the money to dolfansites@aol.com.

Shipping will take place Christmas week. But you must donate within the next 24 hours (Saturday night). Please click the link below for more information and how to donate.

About $800 has already been raised for this kid by the Dolfan sites. Lets push it higher.

UPDATE: The deadline has been extended to Monday night. More images are being ordered. And Randy and Channing will sign them next week. The event itself raised $2000. So far we (the fans sites) have raised an additional $1300. Lets keep it going.

Appreciate it guys!

We've busted $900 thanks to fans from dolfan sites like this one and we are own our way to over $1000 hopefully.

You get to give to a good cause and get 2 autographed 8x10's for a steal! Crowder and Randy Mac at only $10 each!!

FYI, I'm shipping these out after the Jets game on Christmas night when I'm down in S FL for the big game. No worries on the legitimacy of these -- they are from the Randy McMichael Foundation.

Great gift idea! GO DOLPHINS!

Same here John, especially meeting you after a WIN!

I e-mailed the Director of the RMF and told her to add a bunch more for us. It's not going to be a problem getting all we need. The 24 hour deal is because this has to end sometime since this is not my full-time gig :-).

Thanks again! I'm sure the RMF and the unlucky kid will appreciate our help!

I'll see if I can't get a pic to post here of what the 8x10's look like. I think they are going to be unique from what I was told.

GO DOLPHINS!

George - I just saw this. Obviously, it's Saturday morning almost 7ish. Am I too late? Even if I'm too late for the pics, could I still donate for the kid? What a shame this happened.

Let me know please.

Caps, could you please keep us updated on his status? Sorry this happened to your friend.

The charity drive deadline has been extended to Monday morning. Some extra pics will be ordered then and they will get signed next week! Shipping will be right after the Dolphins vs. Jets game. By the way, the 8x10's are not your everyday mass produced photofile photos. They are being done by the RMF and feature more than one image in them. Very cool photos!

I'll ship to the UK, Canada, wherever. We'll find a way to make it work!

FYI, the event raised an estimated $2000 last night. The dolfansites drive has raised an estimated $1300 thanks to fans like the ones here at finheaven that have already chipped in!

Our goal is to bust the $2000 they got last night and we are only about 35 fan orders away from doing it!

I'm not super-close to him, but I'll post what's going on from time to time, when I hear something new. I can tell you that as of a couple days ago, it hasn't been looking too good. He's on a respirator last I heard.

Thanks again to all who have pitched in, Kevin is a good guy, he didn't deserve this.

Sorry to hear he isn't doing any better. Regardless, his parents still have to pay the medical bills because of this unfortunate incident. I hope he gets better soon.

As far as the fundraising goes, I am happy to announce we have busted the $2000 goal!!!! Before expenses (shipping, pics, paypal fees) we have busted over $2600!!!!!!! Thanks to all of you that have participated or plan to before the deadline tomorrow morning!

Crowder contacted Dolphins tight end and close friend Randy McMichael, who has his own charity foundation. The duo raised roughly $2,500 for Lubin on Friday by signing autographs at a West Boca basketball game. Nicole Neuman, executive director of the Randy McMichael Foundation, said another $2,000 was generated by donations made to Dolphins fan Web sites.

She was off a couple hundred, but it's still cool http://www.finheaven.com/clear.gif
