We are happy to report that one week later we have raised nearly 6,000.00 dollars toward our goal of 16,500, and that to date, we have written checks to Jim Davidson for almost 2,500 dollars. We will likely be adding close to 500 dollars more later today.

If you are one of the many who decided to help us out, thank you. You have not idea how much we appreciate it.

If you missed our original announcement please take the time to read it and if at all possible, help us out.

If you read it and haven't already acted, we'd really appreciate it if you made today the day you do so.

The next 5,000 that comes in will be split evenly between the-Ozone and Jim Davidson. The next 5,000 will go entirely to Jim.

the-Ozone Announcement: A short time ago we announced a fund raising effort for the purposes of raising money for completion of our site redesign. You may have noticed that we have not said much about that recently. That's because we had a change of focus that we didn't expect.

Jim Davidson has been our photographer since 2002. Over that period of time he has brought you outstanding photos of many, many OSU teams and has been a huge asset to the-Ozone.

Shortly after we began our fundraiser it was learned that Jim had a form of skin cancer. At that time we ceased our site redesign fund raising effort because we thought we might have to switch that over to an effort to help out Jim.

We are very happy to report that Jim' s cancer has been surgically removed and his prognosis is excellent. The bad news is that he is saddled with some major medical expenses.

the-Ozone management has decided to make raising that money for Jim a priority. Our site redesign, however, is a priority for Jim, and in talking over our fund raising efforts, he insisted we not completely forego that effort, so we have come up with the following plan.

Our original goal for our site redesign was 10,000 dollars. To date, we have raised about 4.500, leaving a shortfall of 5,500.

Jim's medical expenses are just a tad over 11,000 dollars.

We are re-defining our goal as 16,500 to cover both needs. As the money comes in it will be allocated as follows.

The first 11,000 that comes in will be split evenly between the-Ozone and Jim. That will allow him to put some money down on his bills and keep the hounds away from his door and also allow us to complete our site redesign.

The last 5,500 that comes in will be paid entirely to Jim for the purposes of paying off his medical expenses.

Sorry for the length of this post, but it is complicated, and we wanted you to understand what we are doing and why.

If you can help us out, it would be appreciated. You can donate by using the Donate button below or by sending a check to the address below.

We'll be making progress updates as money comes in.
