TarHeel Paul and the Titans

No, it's not a throw-back doo-wop band ... I wanted to give everyone an update on where we stand on the preseason game against the Tennessee Titans on August 21st.

If you are not sure what I'm referring to, you can check out Paul's post on the tragedy that his family has had to deal with. 

BTB Bloggers have shown a generosity that makes me proud of this community. At this point, we have had one blogger step up and donate frequent flyer miles to take care of the flight and another use Marriott points to take care of the hotel room. Donations are going to a VISA gift card that will be at the check-in counter when Paul and Tammy arrive. I've given the hotel an authorization form to be used  to cover room taxes and other fees that Marriott points do not cover - they tell me that should be about $50. That keeps Paul and Tammy from having to deal with any out of pocket expenses.

I'm also working on transportation to and from the airport since there is no shuttle to the hotel. I'll be sending Paul those arrangements once completed. Other than that, everything is in place.

I'm going to keep the link up through the end of Friday, in case anyone wants to contribute. That gives me enough time to get the VISA card and mail it to the hotel to be waiting for check-in. A huge thank you to those who have donated.

Again, thanks to everyone.

UPDATE: I've removed the donations button as I've sent the gift cards out. Thanks to everyone who donated.
