Airplanenut's Charity Auction #3: In Memory of BigIndie-- Donations now accepted

2 posts in this topic

At the close of my last auction, BigIndie said, "How cool is Airplanenut? He just pulled off another very successful charity auction, raising a grand total of $2,751! Kudos also go out to all the collectors who donated goods for the auction. It's nice to see people do something totally selfless."


Following that quote, the grand total was raised to $3000. As a great supporter of my past charity auctions, this auction is being held in the memory of Michael Dalzell, a husband, father, son, and friend who was lost too soon.




This auction will benefit the Spina Bifida Association of America. As you may know, Michael Dalzell (BigIndie) passed away due to surgery complications regarding a life-long battle with spina bifida this past January. As a friend and supporter, I could think of nothing better to do than to remember Mike with another auction.


In addition to the regular auction items as I've had in the past, this auction will also have a contribution fund towards a special set of coins being presented to Mike's wife, Heather. More information on this set will be available soon, including information on how to donate towards the fund.


I am now ready to take any and all donations, such as US coins, world coins, coin sets, books, etc. My plan is to begin the auction in mid-May, after my AP exams are done, so I will have the necessary time to list items and take bids.


For more information regarding the auction, the charity, and spina bifida, please see the Auction Website. Please feel free to email me (charity@jkwd.com) or PM me with any questions, or to donate items or money towards this endeavor.

I have this special pm from him, and I cherish it:



I was very encouraged by your giveaway post. I was feeling very down today (and a bit weak in my faith) when I read your post. It's nice to see someone else on the forum who knows "what's up" (or "Who's up"), so to speak. I always look forward to reading what you have to say. I recently struck up a friendship with Morris Minsberg from MnM Collectibles and I noticed you travel in the same email circles (he's forwarded things to you that I sent him). It's nice to see we have a small community of believers on the CU Forum. Write me back when you have the chance. (Don't worry -- I'm not some crazy stalker).


God Bless,

Mike <><



That was the 1st of many wonderful pms from a God fearing and loving man...
