Re: Save "Keep Turning Left!"

IMPORTANT
*********

If any of you sent a donation via PayPal to: [email protected] you will be glad to know that this is the WRONG ADDRESS.
You will need to go back into PayPal and find this transaction; it should still be in "pending" status. Cancel this transaction.

Having cancelled this transaction and if you are still eager and willing to help dylan out in some small way you will need to issue a new transaction (sending money to friends internationally - select "United Kingdom" as the country) and use the CORRECT email address which is: [email protected]

I hope that dylan will correct the email address that appears on his donations page.

If your transaction goes through you should expect to receive a thank you email from dylan.

I only found out about this by following a similar thread on SailingAnarchy where the old codger admitted to fekking this one up.
His videos are really worth some small contribution.

I sent a donation to that address back in December and finally got a note from Paypal that they couldn't deliver and had issued a credit. I emailed Dylan but it looks like it's still wrong. (Never got a replay from him so maybe I emailed a bad address too!) In any case I hope that the address gets corrected soon, it may be the source of a lot of "lost" taps.

Re: Save "Keep Turning Left!"

Once I corrected the email address in my paypal transaction I got a nice thank you email from Dylan.
That should be your real confirmation that he got it.

Good news:

Once people corrected the PayPal email address, money has been rushing in. Between the two accounts, it seems that we have raised approximately 20% of the total goal of 5,000 GBP in less than a week. Thanks to everyone who has donated. Spread the word and keep the donations coming.

Re: Save "Keep Turning Left!"

Only temporarily. Dylan purchases boats that are most appropriate for the regions he's sailing in. If you follow the entire series, you can see that he has used a few different vessels.

Lilly M, although a fine boat, is too cold and open for Dylan's current needs. There's a small sailboat with a pilot house that he'll be upgrading to, which will give him the necessary shelter and warmth to continue documenting the Outer Hebrides. While he's changing up boats and bringing his balance sheet back into order, he'll be editing and posting approximately 12 films.

Aside from our contributions, those 12 films need to accrue a sufficient number of Paypal contributions in order for the series to continue forwards. I hope this helps.

Re: Save "Keep Turning Left!"

Good news:

It appears that the totals collected so far tally up to approximately 2,040 GBP. That means we're about 42% of the way towards the 5,000 GBP goal.
You've done this in ONE WEEK, which indicates that Dylan's films are popular and matter to the sailing community. Thanks very much for your incredible efforts!

Re: Save "Keep Turning Left!"

Hello everyone,

Here is the status of the Keep Turning Left fundraising campaign:
The GoFundMe campaign is suspended and all monies are being refunded to the contributors.

Why: My goal was to fund one year of overhead so that Dylan Winter could keep sailing and making his marvelous movies for us to enjoy.
What: I did not properly coordinate with Dylan, and he decided on a different plan that requires a different boat for sailing in the higher latitudes.

I did communicate this to the members to clarify the situation and people continued to contribute to Dylan's Paypal account and to the GoFundMe account anyway, to support the venture. When I attempted to transfer the GoFundMe funds to Dylan, he graciously refused.

Dylan is concerned that I wasn't clear enough about the purpose of the funds (purchasing a boat better suited to the area instead of one year's operating expenses) and that people may have contributed due to a misconception of how the funds were to be used. Dylan is scrupulously honest and requests that the money be refunded for that reason.

The GoFundMe campaign is closed, please do not send any additional money there.

Dylan is still accepting donations *if you are entertained by his films*. Please contribute directly to his Paypal account at: [email protected]

Mods: Please close this thread.
