Think this is the route to take. Brand new bow that can be adjusted as he grows and he's still growing.
So, what I'm thinking, everybody that wants to donate money can send it straight to you and get the bow paid for. Any money over that, can go towards the younger brother. Just let me know what you think. Don't want to put you or anybody else in a bind.

Sorry not getting back to this for a while, but working 12hr. shifts and stuff breaking down here at work has me running.
On the bow, the boy is right handed. I will get with texan4ut on this.
On the younger brother, his mom finally told me he has asked for a set of headphones. I found them on Amazon. I will see if I can get the link to post.
Right now, donations for the bow can go to texan4ut and the headphones to me, since I'm a Amazon Prime member.
My number is 979-218-1037. If you want to help out on this, shoot me a text.
Thank You All, Lenney!!!

I will get with sqiggy and set up getting the bow purchased and sent to him. I have paypal I just haven't used it in a long time I will have to figure that out. I am heading out of town tomorrow for the last of the bow season and the start of gun season so I will be out of pocket. My e-mail is texan4ut@gmail.com which I check daily if someone wants to contact me.

Well, I've been sick last few days and work hasn't slowed up much. Probably the reason I got sick!!
Anyways, I've sent out PM's to everybody that posted they wanted to help. There are some I have not responded to being they have certain items they want to donate. If everybody that has said they will help, I will have both boys covered. If somebody new wants to help as well, when he gets this bow, I will be taking him to the bow shop to get him fitted for it. The place I will use is Live Oak Archery in Bryan Tx. He will be needing arrows, release, broadheads. I'm thinking maybe if I could set up a gift card in his name there. I would have to call them and see if they would or could do that, then people could just donate to that as well. If we can make this happen, I will get him going and once he can dial it in, I'm going to take him out to my place and let him fling all he wants at some hogs and then on deer for next year.

Ok, I sent out PM's to those who said they would donate for the bow. Haven't heard back from all yet, but pretty sure this will be covered. The younger brother has asked for a set of Beats Solo Pro Wireless Noise Cancelling On-Ear Headphones. Mom text me the ad from Amazon and are priced at $299.95. Since I don't have a pay pal account, I have one set up with my brother and donations can be made to flintrock1@hotmail.com. If I receive more than what is needed, I can use it to help get accessories for the bow. I also sent out other PM's for those wanting to donate money and I may have missed some. I still haven't PM'ed those wanting to donate specific items. Just want to make sure the bow is covered first.
Again, Thanks to You All for helping these kids. They are good kids!!!

Sqiggy-

Very awesome for you to do this. I don’t have PayPal (we do have Venmo if that is an option), but I will be in Bryan/ College Station on Tuesday. You mentioned the possibility of paying the bow shop directly. Is that an option? I can swing by and pitch in a little or purchase a release or rest and leave it at the shop for you to pick up.

I haven't talked to anybody at Live Oak Archery yet. Waiting for my days off which should be this Thur if nothing else breaks down before then and see if I can set something up. I think they are closed on Mondays. I could call them on Tue, but with my line of work, I might not be able to do that first thing in the morning.
There are some that don't have pay pal either, but are sending me a check instead. Now, my wife works in B/CS and you could leave a donation with her. If that works better, I can PM you where you can leave it.
Thank You

I think I have contacted everybody so far. If not, I apologize. So many PM's!!!
Update on the younger brother, we are about half way meeting the full price. I still have some donations coming thru the mail, so looks like I will be ordering his hopefully by the end of the week.
THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH

Iím in for a monetary donation, it wouldnít take long with all these good folks to get him a new package. We did this several years ago for a young man north of Austin that had his bow stolen that heíd worked all summer to buy.

Got a pay pal set up with my brother. For those that donít have it are sending me a check. He has asked for some headphones.
The pay pal info is posted in this thread. Donít remember which post. If you want to send me a donation just send me a PM and I will send you the address.
