If you attend a domain conference, one of the people you will want to meet is Roy Flanders. He is one of the original domain investors, and he owns some fantastic domain names.
I don’t know him well, but Roy seems like a private individual, so I won’t mention his domain names, although you’ve probably seen his name more than once while using DomainTools to look up domain names, and you’ve also seen it in DNJournal.
Recently, Roy made local news in his hometown of Nantucket, Massachusetts by issuing a matching donation challenge to the Nantucket Cottage Hospital. If the Hospital is able to raise $250,000 from new donors, Roy will match that so the Hospital receives half a million dollars total.
You can read about the challenge on the Mahon About Town Nantucket Arts and Social Newsletter, and I am sure they would appreciate your donations to help reach the goal. You can also make a donation on the hospital website if you’d like to help.
If you aren’t interested in making a donation but you do want to learn more about Roy, the newsletters has some interesting information about his background. He’s an interesting guy, knows just about everyone that makes waves in the domain space, and he’s using his financial resources to help a local hospital.
It’s nice to see domain investors giving back and doing good things.
