Ever since Dan’s passing, fellow Howard fans wondered what would be a fitting memorial to his memory. Pete Roncoli and our own Deuce have suggested this:
With the news this last week of the sudden and unexpected passing of Robert E. Howard fan and forum member Dan “Painbrush” Goudey, we began discussing ideas to try and do something to honor Dan’s contributions to Robert E. Howard, this forum and the fandom of Howard across the web.
With the theme of this year’s Robert E. Howard Days being ‘The Illustrators of Robert E. Howard’ and Dan being a very talented artist, moderator Deuce Richardson came up with the idea to honor Dan by supporting REH’s Museum through Project Pride with donations in the name of Daniel ‘Painbrush’ Goudey.
Deuce checked with Dan’s fiancée Sheila and Dan’s family – and I confirmed today in person – and they think it is a wonderful way to honor Dan who planned to attend the REH Days celebration this year.
Here’s the 411:
Send a check/money order/cashier check to Project Pride – made out to Project Pride – in the name of Dan “Painbrush’ Goudey (just write his name in the notes section.)
Here’s the address:
P.O. Box 534
Cross Plains, TX 76443
Paypal isn’t an option right now.
Project Pride accepts all major currencies.
Project Pride will collect and keep track of the donations made in Dan’s name. During this years Robert E. Howard Days celebration, there will be a presentation of a check to Project Pride in Dan’s name. We are hoping the amount will be significant and greatly contribute to the legacy of Robert E. Howard.
This begins immediately – please start sending your donations right away. The suddenness of Dan’s passing has taught us all the perils of putting off things until tomorrow. Any amount is greatly appreciated – give as much or as little as you can.
Thank you in advance from all of us moderators/administrators here at the Official Robert E. Howard Forums. Please post any questions/suggestions etc. on this topic. Spread the word across the web – Painbrush Donations to Project Pride!

I think this is an excellent idea, and I don’t doubt Dan himself would be pleased as punch to know his memory would help preserve the name of his favourite author and inspiration.
By now, Dan “PainBrush” Goudey is well on his journey to whatever spheres lie beyond this world, but his legacy will remain here as long as we remember him.
UPDATE: Rusty Burke reminded me that Paul Herman has generously offered to put donations made in Dan’s name through Paypal, via the REH Foundation, to Project Pride. This will allow peace of mind for those uncomfortable about sending money or checks through the mail.
Remember: you must indicate that the donation is for the PainBrush/Dan Goudey contributions.
