LEFSE- I work for Hampton Inn and Suites and for Hilton honors as long as it is reserved in the members name and whoever is staying in the room has the rewards certificate it can be used. As far as getting the certificate to the hotel for that person to use it can be faxed,with the name of who is using the room, to the hotel. As far as a Hampton Inn I know if someone were to tell me this story I don't know any of our front desk personel that would not try to help out. Someone might be able to call the hotel that she will be at and explain the situation and tell them what they want to do and the hotel can figure out how to go about it.

We do not know where she is staying, but if we can find that out we will pass it on.

I have a feeling that they probably know this and if it is near the hospital, as in the case when my sister was in, the hotel staff actually asks if you are staying because someone is in the hospital and reduces your rate automatically.

another thing, if you book rooms on line, like through hotels.com, or my web site, YTB Travel Network - Feastivals Travel, rates are almost always lower than booking by phone or in person.

Very true Chefjune, the only thing about online reservations is that most of the discounts aren't available unless you call and ask.

Yes, but if people are donating $$ we have been sending it to Alix who in turn sends in "lumps" to assure Katie gets it. Other things can be sent but the safest way to send money is like we have been doing IMHO.

I agree, but an unexpected card or flowers or whatever waiting for Katie when she gets back from the hospital will help keep her spirits up.

I prayed to God today that I could find some way to help.. I wish I could donate so badly.. I would donate everything I could.. I am running up a debt without working and I don't even have a penny to my name..

If there is ANYTHING those of us who can't donate can do other than pray for Buck and Katie, please let us know.

It is heartwarming to see the community here teaming together during this unfortunate time.

{{{{DC}}}}

My thoughts and prayers are dedicated to Katie and Buck. Keep us posted when you can ! Keep up your own strength Katie, Buck needs as much of it as he can get.
