Skydiving Santa's Medical Bills

$2,630 of $12,500 goal

Raised by 58 people in 2 months
Unfortunately ... G's skydiving mission to assist Santa in delivering Kristoff (a young girl's elf on the shelf) and a bag of Spalding volleyballs to the Tampa Bay Beach Bums volleyball tourney supporting the "Operation Santa" toy drive in Gulfport yesterday was interrupted by a tree and lightpole.  After giving us a HUGE scare as he hit the tree and pole ... with concerns that far more damage could have been done ... we have good news that G is now out of surgery, in good spirits and recovering in the hospital with release expected Tuesday.  It appears that only his leg was broken (both Tibia & Fibula ... one of the worst breaks ever seen by medical personel onsite) but over time, he expects to make full recovery. Please help the Tampa Bay Beach Bums in raising funds to cover his out-of-pocket medical expenses (currently anticipated at $12,500). G is a great guy and beloved Beach Bum Original. Please help him out however you can this holiday season! Thank you so much!! Dominic

G is out of the hospital!!
Kristoff is back with Madison!!

Thanks everyone for continuing to share G's story, especially those that have also been able to contribute financially ... every $5 can add up ... especially when 100's of thousands see the story.

G's request of the day:
DO NOT remove skydiving from your bucket list!
Kristoff's return letter to Madison
Kristoff's Welcome Back Party!
Kristoff back in tree to keep watch!

Sounds like G should be out of hospital tomorrow if all goes as planned.

In the meantime,
good start to fund-raising
almost $2,000 already!

Thanks everyone for their support!!

G successfully completed his second surgery yesterday and has been chatting back & forth all day today ... with both humor & heart.

Even crazier day video-wise throughout Internet. Nearly every major news organization in the world it seems has picked up some version of the story. Well over 100,000 views throughout just the top outlets.

If everyone that has watched one of the many versions of video out there today gave just a 10 cent donation ... we would already exceeded goal!
