I am looking for electric gliders or planes or even r/c trucks to provide exposure to the r/c world. Campfire is a non-profit organization and I work get donations for camp every year to allow these kids 6-15 to have a exciting week every year and ease the grief of losing one or both parents. Again if you can help great if not I understand but I thought I would ask. I am trying to get stuff before camp starts july 26th. I have attached a short video which talks about our camp.

Hello Shane Mudge ,
I'm not sure if you noticed , but your name doesn't appear to be listed as a counselor on the link to the camp fire association that Mr. Tom Crump has posted . This , as well as your account here being created back in 2004 with this now being your only post , looks highly suspicious of your request being a scam . Thing is , if a well respected and well known forum contributor , such as Mr. Crump , for example , were to ask for donations , well you darned right well know the donations would be many due to folk's respect for Mr. Crump .... You ? Nobody knows who you are , your first post here is to ask for something for free , and we see these type of posts all too frequently , complete with the kinds of red flags such as claiming to work for an organization that doesn't have you listed as an employee . If you ARE for real , please provide proper credentials and please understand our skepticism as we see scammers with sad stories regularly .
