Amazing, thanks Eimi and Eso. We'll do Pat proud!
Pat's (Sactown Connection) PUTS MerchandiseStarted 2 months ago by sactownwife2 / toggle topic info
I think the legacy aspect is important. I'm sure Pat would have enjoyment from knowing that his love of the P would continue to give joy. It says loads that his 'glue' stretches around the globe.
If Thes can be contacted it would be good to have his input, although I agree with Eimi's statement about not auctioning stuff off (I'd be priced out for one...) I think a suggested minimum donation plus optional charitable donation would he nice.
Thanks Eimi for the thoughtful gesture and to Eso for picking the stuff up and sorting through it. Great idea and I certainly would be happy making a donation to charity.
Big thanks Eimi! This is crazy news. Pat touched a lot of lives. His legacy will live on :)
I have to quote A La Carter. I haven't been on here in ages, but just logged on today?!?!? Of all days.
What an amazing idea. I only knew Pat from on here, Insta and a few e-mails... But from how I know him... It seems perfect for how generous and caring he was. I also know that all the people on here would definitely want to contribute something. It's a community of good people here.
I think a charitable donation would be a great idea. Pat was extremely generous and I'm pretty sure he'd love that his PUTS possessions would be going to his fellow fans.
If anything is being sent over to the UK, I'd be happy to organise the postage as I have a method of keeping US to UK shipping costs low. Saves sending a bunch of individual parcels too..
Fecal, that is dope. Whatever support needed just holla. If this happens I can see Sac' with a massive smile. Miss that dude, and if honest, find it hard coming on here without him. Odd that I checked today of all days.
Yes, count me in for a donation.
It still all seems a bit strange but I think it's what he would have wanted...and I can vouch for Fecam on the US to UK shipping front. He won't let us down.
Forever the Pmuny
Just to give everyone an update on the cataloguing, I've gone through 37 different items so far. I still have a huge tote to go through with all the vinyl, CD's and other memorabilia.
Can only echo everyone else's comments up to this point. When I first saw Eimi's post I felt both saddened and at the same time elated/incredibly apprectiative of the super generous and thoughtful offer...
I've been trying to think of ways to handle the distribution and compensation/donations in the best possible manner without dampening the spirit in which it was intended. I really do feel like we all want to give something back, so some sort of donation (whether through puts.band, Thes' ongoing support of the AFSP in Pat's name or some other charity) sounds like the way to go - perhaps we can all "buy in" to the giveaway with x amount towards suporting some common organization/goal (+ optional donations on top)..?
One thing that occurred to me was holding a silent auction to downplay the monetary/competitive angle, however the downside of that is it'd result in A LOT of work to keep track of everything + planned attempts at raising more $$ just seem too coldly rational for such a heartfelt issue.
It'd be great to get additional input from Thes, but needless to say Eimi should have the final say on anything.
Eso: This is one of those cases where I wish someone had already perfected a way to digitally transfer brews!! If there's anything we can do to help out or lessen your (considerable) workload, please be sure to let us know! You probably already have this angle covered cataloguing all the items, but especially with the unique, one-of-a-kind items it'd be fantsatic if you/we could preserve them photographically and upload images to the blog and/or include them with the eventual (final) re-up of the Point of the Rhyme archive..?
