Everyday Hero: Andrew McFadyen

Meet a few of our heroes (other than John).


The raffle packages went out today, at a total shipping cost of $37.
Our net donation to @isaacfoundation ‘s MPS II Research Fund is $413, and the donation has just been sent in to them electronically (a total of $441.42 in Canadian Dollars, based on the current exchange rate). 
This brings the total that we’ve raised for The Isaac Foundation since August 2012 to $5,570 (and counting).  Not too shabby!!
In case you don’t know this about us, our group is dedicated to helping the Earth through various recycling projects, while raising money for The Isaac Foundation.  We are celebrating the second anniversary of our group’s conception on this Earth Day 2014, and we’ve accomplished a lot in two short years.
All of the packaging that we use to send out our raffle merchandise and Etsy fundraising merchandise has been recycled, with the exception of an occasional Flat Rate Priority box.  That means that we spend ZERO dollars on our packaging… we recycle boxes from online shopping, donations we receive, and anything that friends happen to give us.  In other words, we never throw anything away if we can envision it having a second life.  That goes for what’s in the box too.  All of the peanuts, bubble wrap, and air pillows that we use to send stuff out has had a former life, as well.
We urge you not to simply discard it all… but to find a way to re-use it a third time!  We are dedicated to leaving a small footprint, and we hope that desire will be contagious. 
Our packages aren’t always real pretty, but they get where they need to go without using any more of the Earth’s resources than they have to. 
We’re real proud of that.
Happy Earth Day, everyone!  Stay tuned for a new chapter in our fundraising for The Isaac Foundation.  We are planning some neat new stuff in our Etsy store.  Stay tuned for info on that, coming soon.  
And thanks again to everyone who has supported us so far, in large ways and small.  Every one of you who has lifted us up, praised our efforts, supported our fundraisers, etc. has given us the motivation to continue doing what we do.

We’ve now brought in an overwhelming $410 with this raffle, and thank you to everyone who has participated so far!  We’re looking forward to giving away this fantastic stuff tomorrow morning.  Four winners will be drawn from the 40+ entries.

If you haven’t entered yet, this is the LAST REMINDER that we’ll post.  The raffle details are attached… but if you just need to know how to enter, you do it by sending $10 for every entry you want to our PayPal account:  fanstreetteam@verizon.net.  No entries will be accepted after 11:59 pm ET tonight. 

All net proceeds will be donated to The Isaac Foundation’s MPS II Research Fund, to raise awareness of the ongoing #SaveJack campaign to help 6-year old Jack Fowler get the life-saving treatment he needs.

Good luck to everyone who entered!!!  The winners will be announced tomorrow.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Raffle details:

To enter:  Send $10 USD for every entry you want in the raffle, to our PayPal account:  fanstreetteam@verizon.net  (please note spelling)

Please be sure to mark your payment as for “family and friends.”  If you don’t, PayPal will deduct a fee for the transaction and you will not be entered in the raffle.  All incorrect entries will be returned to the sender, and you will have to resubmit it correctly.

There is no limit on how many times you can enter.  However, you can only enter via PayPal (we can’t accept cash mailed to us or credit card payments, sorry). 

International entries are very welcome, as the JM Street Team is a global family.  However, please note that we are not able to track, insure, or guarantee delivery of international parcels.  We will do our best to get your winnings to you, but since international insurance or tracking is not available, we are powerless if it doesn’t arrive to its destination.  So international participants, please understand this risk before you enter.  If your package never arrives, we will be unable to reimburse you for your entry, since all money received is donated to The Isaac Foundation.

U.S. winners will have their packages sent with tracking and insurance.

Again, here are the 4 packages.  If they appear in miniature on your end, click on them to enlarge them.

PACKAGE #1

- A vintage JM Monogram / Musical Sound scarf in a green light cotton fabric; it measures about 8 ft. long!

- A limited edition, 45 rpm single of “Who Says,” with “Free Falling (Live)” on the flip side.

- A beaded, JCM bookmark exactly like one given to John in 2008.

- A pen from a truck stop in Livingston, MT, donated by a fan who attended John’s return concert there.

This package contains:

- A collectible pick card from the Crossroads Guitar Festival.

- A “vintage” JM atom beanie.

- A PV cup cozy, a JM tour wristband, a book of JM’s photography created by a fan, concert and Martin guitar promo items, and miscellaneous stickers.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

PACKAGE #3

image

This package contains:

- “Nemo,” who sailed on the Mayercraft Carrier and partied with many JM fans.  He is autographed on his side by JJ Johnson, John’s longtime drummer; and on his face by Chad Franscoviak, JM’s sound engineer extraordinaire.

- A Limited Edition, leather Moleskin “Born & Raised Writing Set.”  This set is #183/500 and contains lyrics from “A Face to Call Home.”  It is in perfect condition and contains all original materials including small notepad, pen that’s never been used, and colorful stickers.

- A sterling silver, limited edition “Half of My Heart” necklace with a JM monogram silver velvet pouch.  This is half of the original set.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

PACKAGE #4

image

This “package” is the most valuable item that has ever been donated to us!

It is a jacket that was donated to us by John’s former keyboardist, Tim Bradshaw.  JM gave one of these coats to every band member after their Canadian Tour with Kathleen Edwards in 2007.  It’s a Men’s Medium, and although it’s missing a detachable hood, Tim says that it’s never been worn.  It contains beautiful show embroidery on the sleeves.  It’s truly a special item.  Tim says that he thinks JM only gave these to the band, because he doesn’t remember seeing any of the stage crew with them.  We will be really happy to give this coat away!

Wouldn’t you like to own a coat that John gifted to his fellow musician?
