Get Well Soon SURPRISE for Calvin!

Organized by: Kate Russell

THE STORY:

Welcome! As you know, our dear friend/family member Calvin was in a mountain biking accident this past May that resulted in a 3-day hospital stay followed by reconstructive maxillofacial surgery. He has been an absolute champ throughout the ordeal and has somehow maintained his usual positive attitude (most people would be big, whiny babies in this situation).

Cal will be going in for a second procedure soon, which will require his jaws to be wired shut after surgery. He'll be on a pure liquid diet for an as-yet unspecified amount of time. This is going to suck. A lot. To make life a little easier for him, I thought it would be nice to get him a really awesome blender:

As the owner of a Blendtec, I can attest that this baby will completely liquify any food-related items you throw its way, so there will be no food bits left to get stuck in wires/teeth/etc. It also does a pretty great job blending non-food items:

If you'd like to chip in a few bucks toward the gift, please do so here (all donation dollar amounts will be anonymous). The blender itself is $420, but if we end up with more than that, I'll also send him some high-quality protein powder and soup broth to be used with his new gadget (to help prevent lean muscle loss and aid in speedy recovery!)

A 'Get Well Soon' card "signed" by everyone who contributed will be included with the gift(s). Please leave a comment/get well soon message on this page when you donate; I will print all comments out and send them with the card. Cal will be stoked to hear how much his friends and family are thinking about him and wishing him well! Oh, and this will be a surprise until then, so please keep it a SECRET from him! Also, please don't post this to Facebook or other social media, as I don't want to embarrass Calvin (too much). Thanks in advance for your love and support! :)

When you're using this dope blender always remember not to breathe the smoke. I really need to watch every episode of Will it Blend again. Much love, Manny 2 years ago
