No, not just for some but for everyone...
I'm filing both of these away for future reference regarding the "bloggers helping bloggers fund" portion of this year's Boobie-Thon proceeds (please don't vote now -- that will come later in September):

  1. helpkat.com: "I am asking for help while I get the necessary treatments and possible surgery for my back. I have scoliosis and it has taken a turn (no pun intended) for the worse."
  2. chuckpierce.com/ring/: "I am a single father who wants to give the best woman in the world a Diamond and marry her."
If you know of any others, please pass them along so I can add them to the file... The cause selected will receive $359.00 (assuming that amount is raised, of course). -Robyn

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

Robyn, thank you for the plug girl. That really helps. You get waaayyy more traffic than me. Thanks!!

I say give it to Kat. A fancy diamond ring and wedding is NOT a necessity of life (although it IS nice!).

It's just that I am more worried about Kat, and how she's gonna support her kids should she become disabled and cannot work.

I don't know Kat very well, but from what I have read, the father of those kids ain't doing jack shit for them! She seems like a good person who only wants to do what is best for her boys.

I'm going to send her some money!

Chuck seems like a nice, sincere guy, and if peoople want to send him money, that's cool...much better than that Karyn bitch! But still...I am happy with the $700 engagement ring that Mike got me from Sears (the diamond is top-quality, BTW, even if it is small by some people's standards)...I don't WANT a bigger one...EVER! I don't need a huge rock on my hand to prove that my man loves me!

Just stating my opinion here! :)

I'm not taking voting on causes yet, so please don't 500 people come in and "vote" behind Christine. ;-) Please, please pretty please -- I don't have time for the e-mails right now!

Of course, that said...my first engagement ring was a gold twist-tie. I'm as proud of that as my "real" ring.

What the world needs now, is a 2 carat solitaire, sweet 2 carat solitare...

Robyn you do rule. And well folks I do not expect the love of my life would be happy if I got her a huge 2 car ring. But I did alot off research on diamonds and I want to get her at least a vs1 or vs2 rock. Somthing that is investment grade. But hey, this is all me, she thinks I am nuts for asking.

Since Eli's surgery is going to be more than even I expected unless people send in a lot soon I think my fund is going to quietly grow by $5 at a time for a long time. But hey,, we met on the net, fell in love on the net, and I think it would be cool to get a ring at least partly through net friends.

Anyways, I have never said my “fund” is life or death, but you know it is real.

This is cool. I would add my own "cause" (if I technically claimed to have one) and that I'm moving back to San Diego to follow my dream of owning my own design company and being a jazz singer...and I owe $11k in taxes. ;) BUT...I don't care how much money I need...

there are far more people in far more need than I out there. I'm intrigued to see what people nominate as a worthy cause.

Just FYI, there was a pretty good discussion about diamond rings on my site a few months ago. The consensus seemed to be a genuine surprise over the fact that the "tradition" of a diamond engagement ring is actually a relatively recent creation of a monopolist cartel that was trying to prop up its prices.
