Calling all members (and readers!) of ranchers.net!!!

Why don't we 'adopt' Manitoba Rancher and help him out as best we can?
My idea is for us all to send him a little cash, checkk or money order to help rebuild his home. I am sending mine on Monday's mail! Even at $50 each, if all members chipped in, it would amount to over $20,000. That would sure give a down payment on building a new home. Don't need to be a member of ranchers.net, just need to have a good heart to help out someone less fortunate...

Anybody game? LET'S DO IT!!!

For those that don't know, Manitoba Ranchers home burned to the ground. He has lost everything, and found he hasn't enough insurance to rebuild. His address is Chris Coulson, Box 181, Oak River Manitoba, Canada ROK1TO

Just a simple question to help me do it right and anyone else on the board.
Is it OK to send personel checks from the bank or credit union to Canada?
Just want to do it right.

Tom no problem sending checks across the border. It will be in U.S. funds as you can't right on the checks any more what funds they are payable. We can still spend US dollars in Canada

Count me in as one of the "lurking" readers too! When a member of another forum passed away a while back I asked my postmaster about postage to Canada. FYI, it takes 60 cents US to mail a first class letter to Canada. 80 cents to Australia.
