Help Me Purchase Dave Grohl
I'm his biggest fan and figured I can round up enough scratch to purchase him so we can hang out and high five and shit. Heck, I may give him a bro-hug or two as well.
I'm not 100% the amount I'm asking for will buy him. Hell, I'm not even sure if it's legal to purchase another human being without being some central part of a 20/20 tv special. But, I figured it wouldn't hurt to try, right?
Since everyone has their hands out these days, I thought I'd join the party - primarily because I don't have that kind of scratch.
If it is indeed illegal to purchase another human (or if Mr. Grohl isn't a willing purchasee) then I'll spend the money on beer because Dave seems like the kind of person that would want me to drink beer.
If you donate, I'll send you a cool text message that includes some emojis that no one understands.
To take our fundraising efforts further, we have scheduled a little shindig we call "The Best of You Bash".
The "Bash" will take place on Thursday, May 26th in Downtown Abilene - with ticket sales going to Autism Speaks.
We'll also have a silent auction (with tons of cool rock memorabilia) the same night - with proceeds going to Autism Speaks.
Thanks again for all of your support.
Here's the info on The Best of You Bash: http://keyj.com/best-of-you-bash/
I never thought anyone would donate to this.
Now that you have, I assure you, I won't keep the money for beer.
As Dave Grohl would do, I'd like to do some good with your donations and give all the proceeds to Autism Speaks.
If you only donated to help me meet Dave (or for beer money) and would like to keep your funds, then I have no problem with that. No one will think any less of you.
Like I said, I'm surprised anyone donated.
If you'd like to continue helping me get Dave's attention, while helping out Autism Speaks, then I thank you very much.
This should explain things better than I just did: https://www.facebook.com/thepainman/videos/10204215753794626/
Dave, if you see this, give me a shout.
This gofundme style fundraising for self-serving, frivolous bullshit has got to stop. Anyone who donates to this fan should be ashamed. Get a job and save the money. What makes you think you deserve other people's hard earned money to live your dream?
Really sorry for all the comments, I tried to delete the first two by GFM isn't letting me.
Autism Speaks may not be the best charity. I like what you're doing, but a different organization might be good! Here are some articles on the issues: http://www.forbes.com/sites/emilywillingham/2013/11/13/why-autism-speaks-doesnt-speak-for-me/#1c3d2cd85ad6 http://autisticadvocacy.org/2014/01/2013-joint-letter-to-the-sponsors-of-autism-speaks/ https://emmashopebook.com/2013/11/13/whats-wrong-with-autism-speaks/

Autism speaks believes that autism is a disease waiting to be cured, it is disgusting.
Please do not donate the money to autism speaks! They do not speak for people with autism- they want to eliminate us! http://www.forbes.com/sites/emilywillingham/2013/11/13/why-autism-speaks-doesnt-speak-for-me/#40e771e95ad6
Autism speaks!!! In Grohl we trust!!!
Fatboy's.. From Leonard Williams and Me..
I've known Frank for about 20 years and at the end of the day he has a heart of gold. Before you say a single negative thing about him or this campaign, make sure you click on the link to the video he posted on his Facebook that explains how and why this all came about. Rock on my friend, this world needs more people like you!!!
I'm totally jealous/upset that I didn't think of this first! I made a FB page (I want to meet Dave Grohl!) in an attempt to "go viral" and be noticed by the rock God but... yeah, that never happened! Good luck in your journey and/or enjoy the beer :)
YOU ARE ONE FUCKING SICK DOUCHEBAG!! Go fund me was set up to help people in need with sicknesses, diseases, help pets, , and some idiot comes up with this, the same idiots who fraud with fake cancer or fake other sicknesses, which totally makes people never want to donate or help.!! GO OFF THE DRUGS...AND YOU'LL HAVE A NORMAL LIFE!
You want to do something really good with those funds and be the most awesome person you could be on the planet? Why don't you get Dave Grohl to come to Detroit and meet my two-and-a-half-year-old son who is a victim of domestic violence and the fucking Foo Fighters are the only thing that will calm him down. That would just make the biggest difference in that kid's life. But hey best of luck to you, but if it started out as a joke it could actually turn into something really cool like I said my son got to see me hauled off to the hospital after getting beat by his father so he will rock back and forth and sing Times Like These or Pretenfer whenever he gets upset as he did the night that happened. Just a thought. Hell I'll buy you a beer if you can get my son to smile.
You're an idiot.
