April of MooreMagnets detailed the event for us. Thank you April!
Right now there is a huge economic crisis in this country, and here on the ACE team all members have felt the pinch. However, one very special member and our team leader, GoneDoggie, is facing the even harder crisis of watching a loved one die from terminal cancer. We have read her updates, we have felt the heartache in her posts, we have prayed for her, and many of us have shed tears for her.Eebee sports a modern pattern of orange and red circles on black
However, this outpouring of support did not seem like it was enough and a meeting was called. During this meeting several members brought up ideas on how we could provide some financial assistance to further aid our friend.
There were lots of good suggestions that will probably be implemented to raise money for other important team causes. However, they did not seem feasible to provide our team member with the immediate financial assistance that we felt she needed.
It was not until the idea of a "sneak attack" came up, that we found a way to provide financial support immediately. A sneak attack is where a group bands together to benevolently "attack" a specific shop with sales. As many people as possible then buy items from that shop, resulting in a frenzy of surprise business to the unsuspecting shop!
There were some members who decided to donate outright instead of making a purchase, and it was agreed that they too would make these contributions during our sneak attack. Some members who are suffering too greatly from the economic crisis and were unable to help as much as they would like. However, a team is only as strong as our weakest link, and we are supporting each other even if it is only with our prayers!

Even though our dear friend would like to know the details of how we pulled off this "sneak attack" with out her having any suspicions, we would like her to know that each team member contributed in their own way. It is and was our intent to have the light shined upon her, and not upon any one team member.Another napper, Dakota, wearing his new pirate flag collarSummer, proudly showing off her lovely new GoneDoggie collar!
