From www.PeppersandMore.com‘s Doug Spiros:
“The Chilihead Community ….. It never ceases to amaze me….
As you all know Peppers and More is running a couple of auctions on eBay in hopes to raise money for one of our Chile head brothers, who like many, because of this economy, have fallen on some hard times. First of all, getting product donated for these auctions was NEVER a problem, I had manufacturers contacting me, eagerly wanting to send product and help a fellow Chilehead. So a big Kudos to all you manufacturers who stepped up…. you are truly great people, and hope that the good that you do comes back to you tenfold.
For as long as I have been a part of this industry, I have seen so many come together to help friends in need. It is so inspiring to see that there is still compassion in this world and that our chilehead “ties” are so strong.
Our first auction was won by Butch T. I was speechless for a moment (and those of you who know me, know that that’s pretty rare) when I opened an email from Butch stating that he did NOT want the products, he just wanted to help out and that he would like to re-donate it! Wow Butch…. what a kind and heartfelt act. We are truly lucky to have guys like you on our side!
All of the Prizes from auction 1 will be added to our other great prizes in auction number 2. So please make a bid for a chance to win some really great products and help out a really great Guy……
The auction can be found here……
So, I just wanted to share this information with you…. I would hope that should you be in a position to donate, or bid… that you do….. because the way I look at it, It can easily be one of us!
Thanks to all
Please help our friends, the Huddleston’s and bid hard and bid often.
