Philip was indeed a 6-year old boy that passed away last year after a long battle with cancer. He was the nephew of one of our Gift Coaches at the time.

Over the course of his treatment, many of the members of WI "adopted" Philip and his webbies. We often sent gifts or Bingoz coupons, which was his favorite game to play. Gift Coach DoobiesDad ran a huge giveway one night where you received items from him in exchange for sending three Bingoz coupons to Philip. It was a surprise for Philip -- he logged on the next morning to 1500+ coupons and played Bingoz until they were gone, even made the home page winner's scroll on WW!

Last Spring (I believe), WI founders Justin and Wendy generously re-directed all donations to WI to Philip's family, to offset the costs of his care and treatment. Anyone who donated during that period received a special "lion" icon on their posts.

That lion was recently changed to "In Memory".

Philip was a brave, special little boy. He is remember fondly by many here.

Thanks for asking! It seems a sad story to read, but he was a joyful boy and "knowing" him made many of us happy.

It is sad, yes. But Philip taught us a lot about what really matters, and how to make the most out of even a short life.
