Thank you all for your kind words and thoughts you've expressed towards my best mate Harry in the last few days. You've really helped him.

Thank you also to those of you that have emailed me asking how you can help, I'm overwhelmed by it all.

Harry has a hard slog in front of him: he wants to keep the twins and bring them up. I know him and he will make a fabulous dad given half a chance. At the moment he has an enormous amount of different things to cope with and is obviously not working.

If any of you would like to help in a practical way, I have set up a paypal donation button to my paypal account here.

Obviously no amount of money is going to make things better but if he doesn't have to worry until we get all the benefits sorted, he can concentrate on his twins and his grieving. I will present Harry with a bundle of non sequential fivers that won't confuse any of the benefit agencies we're going to contact.

Thank you to anyone who has wished harry well once again, you're all lovely people.

Well he deserves it, he's an ace bloke and even though I don't know the bloke that well he's always been one of the "crew" as far as I'm concerned.

I can only repeat what I said before - and hope that absolutely everything pans out OK for him and his babies.

Count me in. I wish I was nearer by so I could lend some "on hand" help too.

Tell him not to be afraid to ask questions on here, there's a fair few of us Dad's on here and we may know something useful. I can also recommend the best baby book ever.

I certainly will WOPR. We have our 1st due in 3 weeks too, so no doubt we'll both be after advice.

Guys, I just logged into my paypal account to make sure it was set up properly and I'm stunned. You've made a grown man cry. I love you all!

I'm not normally one for donations in all honesty, but this is a very worthy cause and so my contribution has been sent.

I can't think of a better 1000th post.

Sodding Paypal! They can't accept that a Maestro card doesn't have an issue number, and it's asking for my verification number, yet there's no verification field!

Sods.

Can I ask a favour? Can someone who *hasn't* yet donated but is doing so please email me? If it's OK I'd like to do a direct transfer between bank accounts then that person can pay paypal on my behalf. If that's OK.

I've just sent the change in my Paypal account so far - there'll be more to come when I get paid.

They've just screwed up the web page.
Change the card type to a Visa, enter the CVV number, then switch back to Maestro. It'll work then.

Thanks quedex, bit late though, I've given the cash to AT. :)

Might be a handy tip for anyone else paying without an issue number though (RBS)

Bill, do you mind the notion of getting a sticky on EG? More people there, some of whom know Harry from his posts, but don't lurk here?

I'm a little reticent in case some of the more flippant newbies decide to troll but I think I might just anyway. Cheers MD.

Oh, and thanks A_T for dealing with Lutz's gift. And thank you everyone!

Lutz, could you sticky it and lock it? Would that be okay? I'll post something in a few minutes.

Thanks

Did he not?

Still though, a lot of folk who know him do still post there and would probably like the opportunity to help.
