Tekken FGC joins together to save St. Louis player's home With some negative news about the FGC going around, we wanted to shine the spotlight on a very good thing that went down recently.

Dilly, an Asuka player from St. Louis, recently fell on hard times. Over a year ago his best friend died, leaving behind a daughter that Dilly and his fiancee adopted.

Dilly and his family were at risk of losing their home, but the Tekken community donated nearly $2,000 in 2 weeks, with the final $375 coming in from an anonymous donator one hour before midnight on the day of the deadline. Dilly recounted the later part of story on Tekken Zaibatsu, hit the jump to read everything.
So I say this, almost with tears in my eyes...

Some kind soul out there, who requested that they remain anonymous, donated a full $375, exactly what I needed before tomorrow.
I don't know who you are, and I don't know what made you choose to help me, but a million thank yous from the bottom of my heart. Your act of kindness literally left my fiancee on the floor crying tears of joy, you literally just saved our house.

To all of you who have helped, or at least read this thread, I thank you all. Words cannot express what you have done for us in our time of need. I'm not 100% out of the clear (there's still $900 to be negotiated), but your help has made sure we still have a roof over our heads, and for this I thank you. If there is ANYTHING I can do to return the favor, just ask, and I will do anything I can do... THANK YOU ALL!
You can read the very awesome and inspiring tale on Tekken Zaibatsu, and see how things unfolded.
