Who has donated so far?
Who has not?

CONFESS, YOU DEADBEATS!

(Or not... But please just give!)

Not a day goes by that I don't use something that kills -that I learned from Jim Cellini, you can bet your sweet-bippy that I've dropped it into the hat for the master!

All I asked Vernet for was the dye tubes. I love their due tube. Besides joe porper's it's the best one on the market. Very compact and holds a lot. If you don't do a dye tube routine you should.

Here's a thought that kinda depends on Jim's condition.

One of the wholesalers here (or 2 or 3 that combined their purchasing power) could place a large order of Jim's material, he signs and dates it (providing he's up to it), and the sellers donate the proceeds back to Jim a few weeks later.

Does that make sense?

OK, here's a little more detail on my idea...

Some wholesalers get together 3,000 and stock up on Cellini books, DVD's, what ever. (Could be any amount, but the more the better imho.) Cellini knows about it and agrees to make special autographed editions of these items, allowing them to sell at a much higher premium. As the wholesalers sell their inventory (now selling at higher than regular retail), they keep their costs and donate the profits back to Cellini, which should be considerable.

My .02 and worth every penny...

Frank,

Any idea on how much longer for the packages?
Magic is an art. I am merely a tour guide.

I'm waiting on the cellini purses and loop balls to be completed.
By then, I'll have the stuff from Fun, Inc. and from Vernet.

I'm hoping for between 1 and 2 week. Then we ship.
A lot of people seem to be interested so we might be able to do more than 10
boxes. I'm just not sure.

Obviously, the more we can do, the better for Jim.
I just didn't think there would be this much interest.

Hi Farnk
Count me in for a Cellini purse.

I think it is a great idear but first I think we should all consider tiping Cellini's hat.

Perhaps then as a bounus perhaps buy a product.
Just a thought

Magic Inc. just informed me that they will also be pitching in for the boxes.
I think by the end of this week we should be pretty much set to set a price and start selling them.

It's heartwarming to see everyone rally for a fallen brother. I don't have much these days but I'll make a contrib through Dave V's Paypal link. This is really great to see. I will focus some positive energy toward Celleni too. Good luck in all your efforts.

...Your professional woodworking and "tender" loving care in the products you make, make the wait worthwhile. Thanks for all you do...

The Cellini Boxes will sell for $100.
This will get everyone a "key buy" on magic items and will get Jim some money from each box. Nobody except Jim Cellini will be making money from the sale from these boxes. Jim will be notified of every sale and who's contributing both money and product.

I must construct a web page to sell the items that includes the price, the companies/people donating, what they are donating, what is being purchased, etc.

Obviously I have work to do. Stay tuned for the webpage. It won't be long now.
