Gofundme to get Joe on the trails again

Postby HAZDevTeam » Jul 08 2017 6:21 pm

Most regular HAZ users are probably aware that the founder of HAZ Joe Bartels was seriously injured in a hiking accident a month ago. Read this thread if you need the details: [ Forum Thread ]

As @The_Eagle mentioned at the end of his triplog from that hike, if you are able and feel compelled, please consider donating to help cover incurred medical expenses and upcoming therapy. There's a DONATE button on the HAZ homepage where you can make a direct donation.

We have received many requests to create a Gofundme page that will allow regular HAZ users to share Joe's story with others who may not be familiar with HAZ or may not regularly participate on the site.

So while the DevTeam isn't super social-media-savvy, we know that many HAZ users are. That's where we are asking for your help. If you Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, etc. would you please consider sharing the Gofundme for Joe with your friends and followers? If you participate in other social media groups about hiking, you might consider sharing it there as well. HAZ is a resource that is used by countless people who may be interested in helping out even if they don't regularly participate here.

Thank you for helping to make the HAZ community such a valuable resource, and for supporting Joe in his recovery.

Every little bit helps!

Bump. Over $2K collected so far, let's keep it going!

Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe that it would be more beneficial to Joe for HAZ members to contribute via the DONATE button on the home page. Reason being is that GoFundMe takes a 7.9% cut of the donation vs. just 2.9% for PayPal via DONATE.

@SkyIslandHiker
Regular HAZ users can always use the DONATE button on the homepage. We established the GoFundMe page because it is easier to share with people who are not regularly on HAZ.

Donations received by either method are greatly appreciated.

I know it's been several months, but I imagine medical expenses are still an issue. How about a "hike-a-thon" for Joe? Just throwing it out there as an idea to keep the "campaign" going.

@mt98dew
Since Joe's fall, we've received a bunch of ideas via PM and direct conversations for specific fundraising events, but feel that the planning and coordination required for such an event would be challenging.

Thanks for "bumping" this thread. It is probably the best way to keep the campaign going. Donations through HAZ via the homepage link are always welcomed, and the gofundme will remain active indefinitely for those who wish to and are able to support.

Thank you for keeping Joe's continued recovery in your mind.
