He has acquired a new fan in the US.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Tim Long, from St Louis, added: &ldquo&#59;I am a father from the USA that wanted to thank Tim for his gesture.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;He must be an extraordinary man and he has impressed many Americans with his sacrifice. With British friends like him we feel very lucky. Thank you.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Tim said that it just seemed the right thing to do. &ldquo&#59;There were terrible atrocities over there and this was the way I felt I could help,&rdquo&#59; he explained.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;I don&rsquo&#59;t really understand the politics of it all but you don&rsquo&#59;t have to.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;Innocent people have been killed over there and there are people trying to help others who have got caught up in it as well. It&rsquo&#59;s my way of lending support.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;I&rsquo&#59;m not thinking about the money. At the moment it&rsquo&#59;s something I haven&rsquo&#59;t got and won&rsquo&#59;t see for a year but I&rsquo&#59;m willing to sacrifice that. On a serious note, I&rsquo&#59;ve got to get myself in the team first and win those bonuses for those people. It&rsquo&#59;s the least I could do.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;A lot of people care. You don&rsquo&#59;t have to pledge money to care. There are a lot genuine people who care an awful lot about what&rsquo&#59;s happened over there.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;I just thought I would go the extra step and donate some money. I just hope it helps.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
