KK- One Last Update On The KK Donation Drive

As of this morning, 53 people have donated $3050.  Included in this total- 10 people donated a combined $1700.

As I mentioned in the first post (2nd post on the KK DD is here) for the KK Donation Drive, operating costs are substantial and ad revenue is down.  Not just for me but for most who do this type of thing.

I will continue to do what I do, leave this post as a sticky through the weekend and move on.

A sincere thank you for the donations and yes, I have slept better the last few nights.

If you care to donate, you can do so via PayPal (note account name is Shalen Franchini and I prefer this method) or at GoFundMe.

KK- Donation Drive Update

Since the KK Donation Drive kicked-off yesterday, 28 people have donated a total of $1030.

More people in the hockey world visit KK as a lurker/surfer than actual KK members, so they can also participate in the drive.

Anyone donating $25 or more also gets the vast majority of ads removed for one year.  So for those of you who are not members, donate/join and the ads are gone which makes it easier on the eyes.

Some of you did donate via GoFundMe and I do not have the ability to see your email address, so I cannot cross reference it with our KK member list.  Just email me and I will remove the ads.

Donations can be made via  PayPal (note account name is Shalen Franchini and I prefer this method) or GoFundMe.

If you'd like, you can read the kick-off post from Monday of this week here.

Thanks and any donation amount is appreciated.

KK- Time Again

Three years ago I started a GoFundMe donation campaign with the purpose to help out KK, bring about some new software and stabilize things.

Since that time, well let me tell you what has happened. First off my health, which is a daily fight and will be moving forward.

I have been able to adjust being a type 2 diabetic and all that comes with it.  Vision issues, kidney issues and at time just pure tiredness.

Also, since that time, ad revenue has decreased at least 50% plus direct advertising is sporadic at best.

The volume of people visiting KK has remained about the same and with independent blogs becoming a thing of the past, I keep on plugging away and will continue to do so.

Why?

I love the game and remain committed to spread the word as long as I am able to do so.

Hopefully A Quiet Night

I took a nice tumble down the stairs early this morning and now feeling it from the back of my head to the tip of my toes.

I actually feel lucky, it was on of those slow motion falls and both legs buckled under me at the bottom of the stairs and I thought uh oh, broken leg coming.

But other than some scrapes and soreness, I am ok but feel it is best to take the night off.

Hopefully I will wake up feeling a little less sore than I am now.

KK- Back Online

Yesterday was not a good day.  I was out of it completely and did not even take a glance at KK.

But we are back online and I will try to update soon.

Sorry for the issue and time to move on.

Back At It, But Slowly

I haven't been feeling well the last few days, took some time off to rest up a bit and now feeling I can at least get back at it but slowly.

I will try to do some catch up posts which caught my eye while I was out.

Thanks for the understanding.

Notes From Larry Brooks

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

- It is not as if I’d relinquish a valuable asset to acquire him, but in the wake of the news Chris Kreider will be sidelined for at least two months and perhaps much longer than that, it would seem to make sense for the Rangers to check on the price of bringing Anthony Duclair back to Broadway for a look-see.

- I’ve never been mistaken as an apologist for Zac Rinaldo, but after getting popped with a six-game suspension, in the words of the Department of Player Safety, “for a punch to an unsuspecting opponent,” isn’t the only logical question to ask why on earth Colorado’s victimized Samuel Girardi wouldn’t have suspected what was coming?

more on each of the above topics plus other hockey notes...
