Whaddya think?

I can't co-ordinate it bc I'm attempting to work for the first time in 1 1/2 years, and it's a delicate balance over here.

I'm up for contributing some $$.

Best wishes! [group hug] [hi] [woohoo]

cbl,

I'd be happy to coordinate.

How does this sound?

-- post here if you are interested in contributing a few bucks for the basket
-- then I'll find something that matches our combined budget and calculate the divided cost
--I'll PM the people donating to coordinate getting the donations
-- Then I'll find a fruit basket delivery place in Conneticut as well as get his address and have it sent there.
-- Also if anyone has a desire to suggest short text for the note that would be great.

Were you thinking of something like this?

http://www.incredibleedibles.net/store/bes.cfm

Or we could go the more standard route . . .

http://ww4.1800flowers.com/dataset.do?cm_cid=whd10382

Or a little more upscale and chi chi? . . .

http://www.deandeluca.com/appetizers-hors-d-oeuvres/fruit/exotic-fruit-and-snack-tray.aspx

How does that sound? As my old English teacher used to ask: Questions? Comments? Hysteria?

Oh, Alison,

Thanks so much!

I think your suggestions are perfect.

I'm partial to upscale and chi chi, since it is a gift. But the important thing is that we're sending A gift.

I'll contribute $10.

Shall I move this post to Medical?

Please remember to calculate shipping and taxes.

Best wishes,

Okay with me contributing $10 that brings our grand total so far to $30.

If we can get at least 2 more people I think we'll be in business.

I moved this Topic to Activism and left a "closed" copy in General Support.

Count me in for $10 ... To whom should I make out the check and to whom should I send it?

Take care,

Count me in for 10 also.

Great idea.

Wouldn't it be funny if we sent a basket of Limes to the IDSA guy followed by a basket of raspberries since we can't be there to stick our tongues out personally?

Don't mind me, just getting my umph up for the protest today! [woohoo]

Fantastic, folks! We are up to $50 by my Lyme math calculation.

Here's what I will do now. I will PM everyone who is donating with payment info. You can send me a check or pay by PayPal.

Then I'll get the basket sent off.

According to the Guide of Ethics for Public Officals of the State of Conneticut . . .

http://www.ct.gov/ethics/lib/ethics/guides/public_officials_guide_07_final.pdf

As a "non-regulated" donor, we can give a gift up to the value of $100 annually.

So it looks like our limit is $100.

So far I have received $10. I'll keep you posted.

How can we make sure that there haven't been any other gifts from us to his office this year? Maybe we shouldn't use the name Lymenet? Who can be checked with? Would Lou B. know?

Lou is correct; we need to make sure that we don't shoot ourselves in the foot.

Though, we could donate it as x# of individuals with Chronic Lyme: Thank You.

I agree with LOU. It's a nice thought, but I think it could look very bad for several reasons.

If any notes are sent they should focus on the task he did/is doing in the name of truth, not in the name of LymeNet - for the health of all citizens as lyme is matter for everyone.

We have to be very careful about propriety. We cannot put him in the position of looking like he is a lyme advocate as that has, sadly, become a very dark name in the eyes of reporters.

When we sent a fruit basket to Dr. J, I believe the card was signed in gratitute from the "Lyme Community."

I think this would be appropriate as well in this case.

Other ideas, from some very grateful Lyme Disease sufferers,etc

I don't think there is too much risk of a fruit basket making him look like a Lyme Advocate. I doubt there will be a press release disclosing he has even received it.

Maybe someone can suggest some language for the note?

Maybe something like:

Please accept our heartfelt, sincere, and overwhelming thanks for your willingness to take action regarding the treatment of Lyme patients. You have given us hope -- not just in Conneticut, but throughout the entire country.

Sincerely,
Many Grateful Lyme-infected Members of the Community at Lymenet.org

quoting the state link:


Token Items -

Regulated donors such as current or potential state contractors may provide you with any item of value that is under $10 (such as a pen, mug, or inexpensive baseball cap), provided that the annual aggregate of such items from a single source is under $50.
****************************

Conn. Gen. Stat. 1-79 (e) (16).


 Food and Beverage -
//////


Regulated donors may also provide you with up to $50 worth of food and beverage in a calendar year, provided that the regulated donor
or his/her representative is in attendance when you consume the food and/or beverage.


Conn. Gen. Stat. 1-79 (e) (9).


so the food must be eaten WHILE 1 OF US IS THERE IN ATTENDANCE after the gift is given!!
**********************************

Hi Betty! [group hug]

The having-to-be-there-to-watch-him-eat-the-gift thing only applies to *regulated* donors. If you continue to page 7 you will see that non-regulated donors (which is what we would be) do *not* have to do this.

As much fun as it would be to fly all the way from California to Conneticut to watch the AG eat our fruit basket ("Sir, I know you just ate three apples, but I'm not going to be able to leave until you finish the grapes, too...") ... lol [Big Grin]

Glad you liked the wording...I was sort of hoping it would prime the pump for others to suggest something? Anyone? Anyone?

I like your new quote.

I would like to add Canada as well, as I'm from Canada, and the Lyme community in Canada will also be effected by this settlement.

Somehow a basket of Limes seems more appropriate. [Big Grin]

I'd like to send a heartfelt letter with the names and states/cities of all who

Appreciate his effort on behalf of us.

I think fruit is always nice and if you decide this is what you are doing I will gladly contribute to it.

I guess the idea that his decision to investigate and willingness to take on

The "big boys" is big for all of us....no matter where we are.

As far as numbers go, this could be bigger and more inclusive.

Maybe both.....a fruit basket and a list of names/cities/states.

Keep me posted.

Hugs,

Geneal

For the thank you statement - canbrave is right - it will affect Canada, and I understand other countries have apparently followed the IDSA guidelines as well, so this investigation has a global impact.

Good thing we're not a regulated donor, so Alison doesn't have to watch him eat the fruit! [Big Grin]

******UPDATE*******

- So far I have received only $20 in actual donations. Not quite enough yet for a fruit basket (Unless we want to send him a couple of fruit roll-ups).

For those of you wonderful folks who have pledged, just follow the instructions in the PM I left you for payment.

I will keep everyone updated as to how much money I've received and when we get enough money for a basket I'll let everyone know.

- CBL, of course we add Canada in -- great idea, and I'm Canadian myself so this makes me extra happy, eh?

- Sending a letter is a great idea but I think it will have to be done independently of the gift basket because there is a very limited space on these things for personal messages.

Thanks everyone!

Alison

If we can, I think we should aim for $100.

Keep us posted; we have to remain timely.

******UPDATE**********

(bah deep beep beep ticka ticka ticka ticka sounds from the imaginary teletype machine in the background)

We are now blazing away and have reached the blistering total of $30 received! [woohoo]

cbl, $100 sounds like a great endpoint. I will continue to keep everyone apprised of our funds.

It's Monday . . . We still need $40 ...

(cue somber classical music)

Think...for only a few pennies a day, you too can make sure the attorney general of Conneticut has a chance...a chance at getting enough servings of fruit to satisfy the Recommended Daily Allowance (oh and helping us show our gratitude for all he's done for the Lyme community). Won't you please help?
