Yes. I have donated several times, my small business has donated , my kids have donated...we are in as a family for over $500 now easily.
Def will be WELL worth it. I for sure will cry when I see it unveiled. I will bring plenty of tissues.
Don't forget, the Diesel Project is a real - registered with the IRS & the state - NOT FOR PROFIT and your donation may be tax deductible!

You are all to be commended for making this happen. Now, our next project is to get a statue of you, Bob, and others who made this possible put up near the West (or East) entrance to the stadium.

While Renee is melting bronze, can you ask her to do a small statue of me standing at the urinal trough? I'll send her the proper anatomical dimensions so that the statue looks (cough, cough) realistic. 03-shhhh

Well, giving it some thought, that may not be all that bad. I have always been impressed with PigDog's tail.

Yea but some other measurements might be, uh, shortened.

RE: DEDICATION DATE SET FOR DIESEL MEMORIAL SCULPTURE
**UPDATE** As of 9/6/17 (Dedication still set for 10/26/17)

We have a set location now for the Diesel Memorial. Our artist met with NIU representatives. There is an area on the west side of the stadium between the Yordon Center & the stadium - kind of a "courtyard" with trees & grass. Diesel with be there about 6 inches off of the sidewalk where people can come by & easily high five with him.

I posted a picture on facebook - made it public & tagged Diesel H. If you are facebook friends with Diesel you will see it.

I don't think I have a way to share on here but if anyone can do that by taking the pic from my facebook post, I'd be happy to see it here.

No words for how we are feeling to see TWO YEARS of working on this finally coming to a completion. I hope to see many facebook pictures of people high fiving with Diesel...ESPN coming back from a commercial featuring the sculpture... it is going to be AWESOME.
