Yvon Bourque (@ebooks4pentax), author of the well-known Pentax eBooks across the Pentax community, has fallen ill and needs our help to fund an upcoming surgery to stay alive.

To help him out, Pentax Forums will donate 100% of all proceeds from Pentax eBooks directly to the cause, and match each user purchase:

Donate by getting a Pentax eBook

You can also help Yvon through the Facebook fundraiser:


Yvon Bourque - Fundraiser - Pulling Teeth



If you'd like to donate a larger/custom amount and don't use Facebook, PayPal donations are also accepted through webmaster [at] pentaxforums.com. Please mention "Yvon" in the comments.

Thanks in advance for your support!
Our Thoughts and Prayers go out to Yvon and his family for a speedy and complete recovery.
Please note a donation made through Paypal to PentaxForums is on its way.

All the best to Yvon and his family. We're been in a similar situation with my own dad for about a year now. Hard times...

Just picked up the KP and K-3 ebooks.
With the enhanced performance and functionality of the KP, I may just need to buy one.

I'm happy to announce that we've raised just shy of $1000, which means Yvon has now reached his donation goal and the surgery will proceed as planned. On his behalf, I'd like to thank everyone who donated directly or purchased an ebook. Bear in mind that any future sales will benefit Yvon as well. I trust he will share an update with the community in due time!
