Regular listeners of our RadioAndroid programming may remember a show that we did a few months ago where we raised $1700 for The Autism Society to help further Autism awareness. If you were watching live, you may remember the BIGGEST donation of the night was $900 from a community member that goes by the handle Bedwa. The $900 he donated came from a withdraw of his 401k. Over the last few weeks, I’ve got to chat with him a bit and get to know more about him. Unsurprisingly, he is a very nice guy with a giant heart. And now, he needs our help.
Part of the winning package from the auction was hotel accommodations and entrance for two to the Big Android BBQ graciously donated by Aaron Kasten and the rest of the BBQ staff. Bedwa lives in Springfield IL and had plans to catch a ride down to Austin with one of his friends to the BBQ. Suddenly yesterday his ride bailed on him. Now he doesn’t have a way to the Big Android BBQ this weekend. This presents a problem for me as I honestly think that he embodies (like a few others) what the Android BBQ is all about.
So… we need to buy him a plane ticket.
So far he has raised about $80 of the $350 needed for a round trip ticket. Tonight, we’re going to do our damnedest to raise the rest.
We’re most definitely going to be taking shots and getting a bit crazy LIVE on the air. During the broadcast, we’re going to do our best to solicit the Android community to donate to his Paypal and help pop for a plane ticket.
