A Charles Pelkey live update

The GoFundMe that David Stanley set up to help our old pal Charles “Live Update Guy” Pelkey is ticking along nicely, which is more than I can say for the “classic” LUG video up above.

As of 2 p.m. Dog time the fund was at $24,410 — a tip jar that we never could’ve imagined when we were begging for nickels to run Live Update Guy. A thousand thank-yous to everyone who has contributed and/or spread the word about the fundraiser.

Now, give a listen to another old pal, Diane “The Outspoken Cyclist” Jenks, who interviewed David for the most recent episode of her long-running podcast.* You’ll get a better idea of how all this good fellowship came about.

If you haven’t joined the party, here’s a link to CP’s GoFundMe page.

* One minor correction: The cartoon of Charles that accompanies the GoFundMe news Diane and I spread around is not by Your Humble Narrator. It’s by David Brinton, a.k.a. Brintoni, who did such great work illustrating “At the Back” in VeloNews while I was up front pissing on people’s shoes.®

    The assorted weirdos that made up the VN readership did not deserve two cartoonists of the Brintoni — O’Grady caliber. But we appreciated the work nonetheless.

  3. Pat O’Brien Says:

    Based on donations in the last 24 hours, The fund will go over $26k sometime today. Patrick getting the information onto “The Outspoken Cyclist” helped I’m sure.

    Meanwhile, they arrested a dumpster cult member in Duke City, and they are looking for 4 more. Oy.
