Auctions for Richard and Karen Jeppson- Items all paid for - Thank You!

Discussion in 'The Taxidermy Industry' started by Mary Krueger (rugmaking), Jul 13, 2012.

  1. As many of you have already read on taxi.net, Richard and Karen Jeppson have lost their home, shop, beloved pets and everything they owned in an Idaho wildfire on June 29th. Richard is also battling cancer. Ken Edwards has guided me on how to set up this auction board and allowed this to be posted.

    To date Ron Anderson's Artificial Tree Tutorial Package has sold for $500.00 to Richard B.
    My rugmaking services for a bear rug has been purchased for $250.00 by Jim Campbell.
    Lisa M. is auctioning a Dream Catcher and accepting bids until July 19th.

    Anyone who would like to donate an item or a service may either post it on the Taxidermy Industry thread or if you would like me to do it for you just send me a PM. I will link all auctions to this thread that Ken will keep at the top.

    All monies raised will be deposited in a donation bank account in Idaho which is being set up by Terry Bennett. Once I receive the information on the account from Terry, I will post it here. If you don't have an item to auction but would like to help the Jeppson's you can deposit your donation in the account.

    I know these are tough times but if you could find it in your heart to help out no matter if it's a small gesture, all will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks to Gordon Mclean and Terry Bennett a donation account is now set up in the Jeppson’s name.
    All won auction monies should be deposited directly into this account.
    Any other monitary donations would be greatly appreciated, as well.

    Wow! Nice Job Mary! All very nice items and HUNTS! I cant help but think many dont know how much the Jeppsons have contributed towards our industry and competitions as well! I hope these all go for a good value- ive seen firs hand the devastation from wildfires, and to it all in a blink of an eye is crushing, let alone the medical issues they have been facing. Times are tough for us all, but this forum has come together before and i hope they do for the Jepssons..Thanks to all those whom have bids in and the contibutors of these great items as well! You guys got class... ;)
