KK- It’s Time

original post was 12/8/18 at 10:00am. Sticky removed, post will slide down as KK populates.

In order continue to do what I do on occasion I come to you to help KK keep going forward.

The last KK Donation Drive in July was a success, thanks to many of you and one special donation which I think of every day (seriously, every day I pinch myself to make sure it was real).

Things are going okay for me health wise as you can probably see by the number of hours per day I post.

I do take a little down time here and there in order to avoid complete burnout but other than that, my goal continues to deliver the latest news throughout the hockey world.

If you wish to donate- I prefer payment via PayPal (note account name is Shalen Franchini) and also have a GoFundMe account set up too.

Every dollar amount helps and if you do contribute at least $25 ($20 for those of you who have donated in the past), the majority of ads on KK will be removed for the next year.  

This post will remain at the top of page for the next few days.

This is admittedly a weird venue for this question, but George Malik has been silent online for nearly a month. Does anyone know anything?

I have criticized his comments and takes in the past, but he’s a good shit and too young to just disappear.

Anyone? Find me on twitter, eh?

Chet, I exchanged emails with him about 6 days ago and his battle against depression is improving but he just isn’t ready to get back to work at this point.

I did leave a comment in one of the A2Y posts recently jut to update people about his health.

Just wanted to thank another KK member for the continued support of KK with a nice donation today.

I tried to email you but the hotmail address kicked back to me.

Thanks again.

That was probably me. I haven’t used hotmail in years… didn’t realize that was my primary all this time raspberry Oops!

Anyways, no problem. Happy to support this great site and community!
