The prize winners for the items in the Frank Sumption Memorial Fundraiser have been chosen.
You have all come together to honor the memory of Frank Sumption in a way that would make him very proud. We were all affected by his passing, and we will continue to be affected by his presence through the form of ITC he created. The Sumption family needed help, and with the generous donations 114 of you put forward, a big part of their financial burden was met and paid for. I am proud that all of you came together to help the Sumptions out when they needed it most. All of the donors contact information and words will be passed on to Frank’s widow tomorrow.
As you probably know, Frank was a generous man who never profited from his work. He made boxes and put them in the hands of a select few researchers for little to no money. His passing came as a shock to everyone and because Frank did not profit from his boxes, he couldn’t afford insurance. The medical costs and funeral costs were quite a shock and this fundraiser was created to help ease that financial burden.
In addition to the monetary donors, a special thank you goes out to everyone who promoted this fundraiser via social media and word of mouth. Those who were approached but elected not to do any promotion in the paranormal community for this fundraiser, don’t worry, we won’t hold it against ya! (at least not for too long) 🙂
I would also like to thank from the bottom of my heart the folks that donated items for this fundraiser (in no particular order):
Michael Hobert Edwards
Chase Bryant Singleton
and finally, a very special thanks to Bill Murphy and Steve Hultay. It was conversations with these two gentleman that helped make this fundraiser a reality for the Sumption family.
Thank You to all Donors!
