Helping a friend who is a fire victim

Hey Shooters,

A friend of my family out in Texas has suffered a tragedy. Their 8th grade son, Rayne Newby, was burned over 90% of his body in an accidental fire the day before thanksgiving. There are several charities set up out in Texas through events being scheduled and local banks so I thought I'd try to raise a little out here to send. If anyone wold like to drop a buck or two into the hat and have Paypal, my address is kg4kpg AT gmail DOT com. Pay as a "Gift" and once there is a bit to send I'll post up on the forums how much was raised and sent. They also have a Facebook page you can "Like" if you want called "Praying for Rayne Newby". https://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/pages/Praying-for-Rayne-Newby/222670711137466
As for Rayne, he is in a burn unit ICU in Dallas. I don't know the outlook yet but he has had several skin grafts already and has a long way to go. He is a fighter.

Please don't feel obligated, just if you would like to help out.

If anyone hasn't had a chance to visit the facebook page for Rayne, he is showing the true ability of young people to heal. It only took a few days for him to come off of a ventilator and he is talking to his mother and father but is still sedated most of the time. I burned my finger on a soldering iron once and thought the word was coming to an end. :D Rayne is also sleeps through the night. They said his skin is being harvested in Boston...I didn't know they harvested skin. :eek: He is still in for many surgeries, then physical therapy, then who know, but they say he will be in the hospital for at least eight months. His family is staying at a Ronald McDonald house there as well. Many groups have raised money and I have raised some on the forums I frequent so if anyone else in interested just let me know. I can take paypal or checks. Again, please don't feel obligated, I know I don't like people asking me for money either (especially my mortgage, auto, credit card people ;) ) Just keep him on your mind or in your prayers.

Thanks,

Chris
