Okay! I'm receiving funds at aaronalderman @ hotmail.com (please make a note "For Travis") and then I will send a big check when people want me to (before or on Christmas Eve).

I don't have much money, but I'd still want to give something and I'm thinking if all of us got together then combined that sum could add up to a meaningful amount. Travis must have some rather high expenses now with his cancer advancing (if I understood correctly, this is just my understanding based on his posts on Permies).

I don't mind mailing cards along with the check. But, I know for Judith, it takes a long time for things to get from where she is to where I am. So, maybe we just try to time the arrival for the same day or two? So, if we want them to arrive on Christmas Eve, we all try to make sure everything arrives around that day, so it's one big happy surprise in in his mailbox.
Something brief like "we're gathering together to celebrate what Travis gave to our community and giving a small gift to him as a symbol of our appreciation for his work and his tough personal situation. You're warmly welcomed to join us, if you'd like"
