Help Me Help the NAWCC

#1 Post by HandyDan » Mon Jun 04, 2018 5:38 pm

Hey fellow vintage Hamilton fans...

I'm doing something I've never done before... I started a campaign on GoFundMe to raise money on behalf of "the Friends of Hamilton Chronicles" for the NAWCC 75th Anniversary and the For All Time Endowment and Capital Campaign.

One of the things I really appreciate about our hobby is the community of collectors that I've met and gotten to know. We are a unique band of hunters and gatherers. The elders teach the youngers and, together, we all learn and appreciate more about our shared interests.

To me, that's what the NAWCC is all about.

Just to show that I've got some skin in the game, for every $25 donation made through the campaign I will enter a chance to win a 100+ year old Hamilton pocket watch that I will overhaul and show on the blog later this month.

https://www.gofundme.com/friends-of-hamilton-chronicles

Thanks in advance for your participation, if interested, and for sharing on any social networks you like to frequent.

Best regards,

HandyDan

I'm about half-way to my goal, not bad since I'm also half-way through June.

I just completed the project watch that I'm raffling off as part of my "Friends of Hamilton Chronicles" NAWCC campaign. It actually turned out great, as you'll see on the blog.

All it takes to enter is a $25 donation and it's 100% tax deductible and all goes to help recognize the NAWCC's 75th jubilee. Multiples of $25 count for even more chances to win!

A worthy endeavor, and I just jumped in. I'm planning on attending the National Convention, perhaps we'll run into each other! Best Regards, Dave.

And the winner is... Tom Eanes. Tom is also a member of this forum and the proud new owner of the 1913 972 pocket watch.

Thanks to everyone who contributed. Collectively we raised over $3,000 for the NAWCC "For all time" capital campaign!
