Good morning fine folks of the internet! I am reaching out to you this morning, in hopes that you will help me help a dear friend of mine.
On December 10th, 2012, the home of my good friend Barry was broken into. The front door kicked in, and thousands of dollars worth of personal, and professional equipment was stolen. Among the items taken: a Nikon DSLR camera, Kindle Fire, Laptop, television, and various other electronics and valuables.
Perhaps worst of all, the thieves also took all of the Christmas gifts for his family, of which he has 2 children.
Barry is a proud individual, and one who has served and protected his community for 30 years as a retired police officer. Today, although he wouldn't admit it, he could use a little help! All told, he lost close to $10,000 dollars in personal effects.
Being his friend, and helpless to do anything substantial, I am asking for help, to raise enough money, that he can maybe put a few things under the tree this Christmas for his wife and children.
I understand times are difficult for everyone, and I am not asking for much...but if you can find it in your heart, and wallet, to donate even a little bit, I can assure you, this family could sure use it, and would be very grateful! Thank you for the little slice of your time, God bless, and have a Merry Christmas!
