    A few weeks back a notice was pinned informing members that one of our most valued Alliance vendors was in medical crisis.I have spoken with Eric, and he is most grateful for the understanding from his customers and wished me to pass that on.
    Eric Williams of Hot Rod Leather is due for Open Heart surgery... while his medical costs are all covered..... his recuperation will take 3 months at least.He will not have any income to cover his mending period.
    We here at the Jalopy Journal are sharing his gofundme page in hope some members will help out Eric.
    Large sums are not required... anyone can donate $5,$10 or $20....
    Eric is a master craftsmen and we want him to continue his wonderful work.

    If you can in anyway can help... your donation will be so greatly appreciated.

    You can go here....

    Thanks in advance to the most wonderful bunch of greasers,...spreading the Gospel.

    Jeff

    He and I have been in contact the last few weeks, discussed his illness and the order I placed which he is shipping now. A great guy and I am happy to play a part in his fund me account. The world could use more people like this.

  6. For those of us that don't use credit cards how can we contribute to his recovery? I didn't see another option on the gofundme page.
