Im going to post the email she sent out trying to help this family, and the website that goes with it to.
| The last six months have been incredibly hard for a family I know. A friend of mine lost his job and had to deal with the obvious issues there. But shortly thereafter, his dad passed away after a three-month health battle. While it is a part of life, it doesn't make it any easier for him or his family. He and his family, like so many others, have had a tough time dealing with the circumstances. |
A bright spot in his life is that in about two to three weeks, his daughter will be having her first child. The only problem is that my friend is in Tuscon, his daughter is in South Carolina. He and his wife would love to be there with their daughter when she delivers to share that moment with her. All he needs is two plane tickets from Tuscon, AZ to Greenville, SC. Of course, when you can't even make your basic ends meet, purchasing plane tickets likely isn't too realistic. So, I've anonymously put together a fund for him, and I'm trying to raise $1,300 (tickets, as you know, aren't cheap). Feel free to go to Flight for New Life. You'll find information about the family as well as information about donations.
Here's what I need you to do: pass this along to as many people as you can in an effort to raise the funds needed. I know the economy isn't conducive to charitable giving...it's hard to pay for everything WE need, let alone trying to help others who we may not even know. That said, I completely believe that what goes around comes around, and you will be rewarded for your kindness.
If we can just get 130 people to donate $10, we're set. Or 65 to donate $20...you get the idea. There's no donation to small, and none too large. It won't take long for us to be able to make something amazing happen for this family if we just take a few minutes to pass this along!
Thank you so much for your help!
