    Default "Please Support Kyle Matthews' Charity to Fight Cancer"
    If any of you are unfamiliar with the name KYLE MATTHEWS, he is one of the owners and founders of this wonderful site we visit and take part of every day. For those of you that don't know the incredible hardship that has faced his family in the very recent past, I'll leave that up to you to research for yourself. Because Kyle is such a humble, honest and good man he would never do something like this himself, but I feel compelled to do so..

    What I am here to do is ask EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU to visit this site:

    http://www.gifttool.com/athon/MyFund...232&PID=166135

    ...And PLEASE consider supporting Kyle's charity to fight cancer. This is a horrible disease and if enough people would continue to join together in causes like this we CAN make a difference. I PERSONALLY CHALLENGE EVERY PERSON READING THIS TO THINK ABOUT THE MANY DOLLARS YOU HAVE "DONATED" TO PUT A SILLY THEME OR APP ON YOUR IPHONE OR IPOD, AND CONSIDER DONATING AS MUCH IF NOT MORE TO THIS AMAZING CAUSE. In my opinion it is OUR RESPONSIBILITY to support Kyle in this endeavor. I know he has helped me COUNTLESS times on trivial issues involving my stupid phone, and I'm sure he has done the same for a lot of you reading this. If not, TRUST ME -- he has indirectly helped you without you even realizing it.

    Thank you so much - and Kyle, if you're reading this I know I just made you very uncomfortable but I'm sorry my friend, i had no other choice.

    Ill keep your family in my prayers every night.

    If it would be alright with Kyle I would like to make a theme and have ALL proceeds go to him and his cause. I was already very aware of the situation and just thought of that idea. Only if its alright with him I don't want to cross any boundries. much respect and love from my family to yours Kyle i couldnt even imagine being in ure posistion. You inspire me and make me more grateful for my life.

    First off soon as my payday comes around I would love to donate for Kyle. He is a great guy. Second, I second FreeApples idea of a theme to get some donations toward him. I think though that we should try to get as many people as possible to help make it so that when it goes live it can get some REAL money moving kyles way. This has always been my favorite place on the web and its all thanks to Kyle.
    Ill be keeping you and your family in my prayers Kyle!

    I just wanted to say that once I release the theme i'm already working on Ill be sure to (if its alright with him) give him and his family 100% of my profits. Cancer is a terrible disease and to have to deal with it is terrible.

    I just want to say that I am so proud to be a part of this amazing community. I encourage everyone to continue to show their support of the Children's Hospital, and blow Kyle's original goal out of the water. If you can only donate a dollar or two please do so, and if you can't please keep he and his family in your prayers. Thank you all again so very much

    This is a very good cause and I will definitely donate. Kyle Mathews is a great hard-working and dedicated man and deserves our help for founding and creating such an amazing forum.

    However I believe this thread may be in the wrong section (:

    Thanks for the head's up guys -- i want as many people as possible to see this, so I've added a 3rd thread to the general section. As a themer I honestly never get out of the Themes sections here so I hadn't even considered that.

    I don't know about the rest of you, but my phone seems a whole lot less important to me after thinking about this all day today. I'm going to love on my family for a few days and take a break. Thanks again so much for everybody who has chosen to support a great cause and an even greater person and his family.

    Thanks guys. To set the record straight - this money isn't going to me, it goes straight to the local Childrens hospital. Just wantedto clarify that!

    Wanted to remind everyone to consider supporting this great cause. To make sure you completely understand why this is so important, here is a great description of where your donations go:

    Cure on Wheels raises money for Tampa Bay families coping with a diagnosis of cancer through an annual Cure on Wheels Bike Challenge. This year our event takes place at the beautiful Flatwoods Park located in Tampa Florida. As Florida’s only ride to benefit cancer research, Cure on Wheel’s intention is to successfully meld support from committed cyclists, volunteers, corporate sponsors and individual contributors. All are essential to Cure on Wheel's goal and model: to attain maximum fundraising efficiency while increasing its annual gift. Our hope and aspiration is to provide Tampa Bay families the necessary resources to help them cope with the potentially debilitating diagnosis of cancer.
    ... These are families that have recently discovered their beautiful babies are sick and on top of quite possibly the most horrible news they will ever face, are now faced with a financial crisis due to the expenses associated with fighting this horrible disease, people that our friend Kyle and his family have grown very close to.

    I can't think of a better cause - to help those who are going through possibly the toughest time of their lives with a child in the hospital in very dire condition. Can you imagine adding the additional stress of money issues and worrying about whether you can support your family? Now imagine how woderful it might feel to one of those families to know that complete strangers have made such a selfless gesture to assist them in their time of need.

    Kyle has vowed to put himself out there and ride an awful long way on a bicycle to "earn" the money we donate to support him in this cause, and I don't have to explain again how important the money they can raise will be to families that need it so badly.

    So PLEASE - open your hearts and consider supporting this great cause. Thanks again everyone and God Bless.
