    Hello Canadian Regiment and the rest of the 405th!

    Viper 466 has been in touch with the Aunt of a young boy named Alberto who lives in the Monterrey area who has been undergoing chemotherapy. He is about to start another round in January. Alberto is 14 and a huge Halo fan!

    Viper 466 (Micheal) is going to be doing a video message for Alberto. I've also been in touch with AZTLAN who is going to check with members in the area to see if someone has gear that can do an in person visit.

    Micheal would like to see if he can get some other messages to add in with his to help cheer Alberto. If anyone would like to participate, please post in this thread and tag Viper 466 so that Micheal - and yes, that is how his name is spelled - can organize them all!

    For anyone interested in doing this, the key is to not focus on the fact that Alberto is sick, but rather on the fact that he is a warrior and we're all behind him. If you have a story to share about how much costuming as Halo characters means to you that's also great to add.

    Any questions?

    I volunteer either my Spartan or ODST to service.

    Viper 466, if you require a follow-up video around April-May time period I think we know what needs to be done.

    EDIT:
    Question for FANGS, do you know if we can manage to get a mailing address to send a fun care package of Halo related merch? I'm not one for good luck charms but having something physical from someone that's cheering you on is always rad.

    I asked about sending a care package, will update once I know what’s on the go. Currently he’s resting as his immune system rebuilds itself. I’m told if we get cleared any package will take roughly 4 weeks to arrive.

    I’m going to be donning the Chief as he’s my most known rig and recording it this coming weekend. Any help is appreciated!

    I use my ODST as my avatar but the Spartan probably is my most recognized?

    Is this going to be purely recorded or is there a planned videochat/facetime type thing?

    Purely recorded I think might be the easiest to do right now with the holidays and everything going on. We got the green light for a package to go, I'm currently pondering what to box up and send out. Will chat with you via voip or some such.

    Schankerz and Dirtdives much appreciated!

    Is there a timeline to get video messages done? I'd love to contribute but I'm going to be away for a week.

    I’m going to be recordig today, I’m hoping to have everything done and ready to go by at the latest Jan 4th. I’ve been getting donations for a care package in on my end but with Christmas now, it makes it a little tough.

    So... this thing exploded. My vid is recorded and ready to chop. Anyone else if you guys are in, google drive or drop box me. Dm me for an email.

    Update on Alberto is they had to accelerate his second round of chemo so he’s been through and is out again.

    I’m going to try to mail this thing out this week. Much like Quint from jaws I’m gonna need a bigger boat... or box even.

    Viper 466, can you throw me some more information to pr@405th.com? I'd like to see if I can boost some of this to social media. Also, I'd like to participate in some fashion as well.

    Everyone that is involved, please drop me your social media links, as when this -does- go down, as I'll want to call you out. :)

    Sorry about that, Viper 466. It's more just general things, honestly. Number of people involved, that sort of stuff. Honestly, if you think it's important, you can totally throw it my way. :)

    Right now to my knowledge TurboCharizard BlazedStarbon and Dirtdives for items/vids to contribute.

    I know that FANGS and FlyinPhil have offered to help chip to cover costs on sending the box of stuff.

    If you need a list of persons and what they donated then I can get you that later on tonight.

    My box of goodies is already on it's way to the rally point and has a collection of H3 medals and a novel.

    What's the plan with the video footage? Are we going to compile it into one long video or send off individuals?

    Viper 466 I will have a video for you Thursday evening (tomorrow).

    I’d suggest google drive or drop box. If you think making everything into one video would be easier, feel free to use me and I can always render it if you don’t have the time. Otherwise, ill send it to you however you’d like!

    Hey all, sorry for the crazy late response on this. The care package is away as planned. My leg is fighting me though and I'm going to take BlazedStarbon up on her offer. If you can get her your video messages she has offered to stitch em all together which I can't be more thankful for than I am right now. I'm not able to sit at my desk long enough to really get the work in that needs to be done. Gonna tag TurboCharizard and FlyinPhil cause I know you guys have one ready to roll as well.

    Apologies again for my tardiness on this.

    Dropbox, Google drove, or Facebook messenger will be the easiest to send the videos. Should you require an email address to send them to, feel free to message me and I will provide further instruction :)
