If you’ve heard the name Jason Skjegstad, please raise your hand.
Not a lot.
If you’ve heard the name FrFrmPukin, raise your hand.
There’s a few more.
FrFrmPukin (Pukin for short) has been a strong motivation in the EVE Online podcast community for quite some time. He’s a prominent member in the LI3 Alliance and one of the driving forces behind the Multiplex Gaming Site. He has helped perspective podcasters and bloggers get their start and is a host on the Podside podcast.
And, he needs some help.
Jason is a US. Vet waiting to get his V.A. benefits and is experiencing some health issues and has racked up some medical debt while waiting for the benefits to kick in. I met Jason at the recent Minnesota Meet-Up that he organized in early December and had an awesome time. He is charismatic and a lot of fun to talk to (and have a few beers with). Despite that particular evening being cold as hell, I have never regretted attending my first Meet-Up with Pukin and the great group of guys that showed up.
There is a fundraiser that has been started to help keep him going until his benefits start and it’s located at https://www.giveforward.com/fundraiser/gl24/jason-s-salvation?utm_source=giveforward&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=supporter_thank_gift&hid=3824039&cid=3046869. If you have a few extra bucks and can afford a donation, I would suggest plopping into the site and making a pledge. Every little bit helps!
