FYI: Rommel's 3rd Annual Charity BBQ

At the annual PFSP last December, we were informed about Rommel D'Souza and his charity BBQ. Here’s what I wrote about it at the time.

“Rommel’s Charity BBQ was discussed this morning. Basically, one of the past participants got this idea to have a charity BBQ, and took the initiative to do it. He didn’t throw it out there as an idea, but actually made the arrangements, started inviting people, and looking for sponsors. Last year he raised about $3,000.00, which covered his expenses, paid for 2 people who could not afford therapy to take the program, and there is over $500 remaining, which will go towards somebody’s therapy at next years BBQ.”

Well August 12 is the 3rd Annual Rommel's Charity BBQ.

It’s a great cause, and he’s doing it in a financially responsible way. Check out his Financial Accountability page.

If you can’t make it, you can contact him directly to make a donation.

This is such a great idea since the PFSP program has a high price tag on it for some people. I remember there was an ananymous donor for kids when I went through the program as a kid.

Yeah, it is a great idea. I'd love to hear about this inspiring somebody in the states to do it.

I just finished reading over your whole blog for the third time. It gives me so much inspiration that one day I will be as fluent as you are now. I find myself very similar to you, I feel stuttering is holding me back in life and I am capable of so much more. If you can find time, please post again and keep us updated.

Hi Meng,

I haven't been on the forum for a while, when did it go down? If today is the first day it's been gone, then it could just be down because of a technical glitch.

Otherwise, Vikesh may just rebranding the site or going in a different direction.

Look back in a couple days ... it may be back up.

Regards,
John
