Default Benefit drive for PP Mguire's family

On January 4th, one of TF's own, PP Mguire, was called by his sister to tell him that his parent's house had just burned to the ground and that their father had suffered a massive heart attack. Mguire's family lost everything in that fire, including their four puppies. Mguire's dad was just recovering from bronchitis and pneumonia and was already weak so the heart attack was multiplied in effect.

At this time the family is trying to cobble together what it can to make it through material-wise, but Mguire's dad remains in ICU in critical condition.

This thread is a benefit drive for Mguire's family. The donate button leads directly to Mguire's PayPal account as he is the only one in his family with one. I know that everyone does not have it to give, but if you can help in any way then please do so.

<form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick">
<input type="hidden" name="hosted_button_id" value="FTEKET5DLRWYG">
<input type="image" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_donateCC_LG.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!">
<img alt="" border="0" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/scr/pixel.gif" width="1" height="1">
</form>

Gave a bit, it's not much but I hope it will help. If I were religious, you would be in my prayers!
