Bill King Fundraiser Update - That’s A Wrap!

Thanks again to everyone who has contributed and most especially Jackson’s Grandad, who has been unbelievably generous.

Our fundraiser for Bill King has met and exceeded our goal, so we’re going to take it down off the site in a couple of days.

It was fairly static for some time until Jackson’s Grandad offered to do a matching fundraiser to get us to our goal. That was immensely decent of him and we can’t possibly thank him enough.

As you may have read previously, Bill, a lifelong Duke fan, has suffered a lot in recent years. He has had multiple health crises, his bills are sky high and he lost his only son and his wife over a fairly short period of time.

This fundraiser has made a big difference to him and while it certainly did help him with his expenses, it also moored him to a caring world, and, just as importantly, it helped restore some optimism and good feelings. And for that, along with everything else, we thank you again.
