My son Nolan Turner is trying to bring his wheelchair basketball team sponsor, BridgeIISports, to his school Briarcliff Elementary so that all of his friends can experience what it is like to play sports in a wheelchair.  He really enjoys it.

It is going to be $1000 to cover the costs so that the organization can be there the whole day.  This is so that the ENTIRE school will get to experience this.  Anyway, he has been sitting out on the sidewalk selling bottled water for $1.  Sitting there in his wheelchair, doing tricks for those who came by and donated or purchased some water.  Today (March 22) he was sitting there selling and some low life comes by and stole the money he had made.  He had already made enough to cover just his class ($250) and was trying to earn more so that the school could do it.  The thief took approximately $150 from the jar.

Whether you donate or not, thank you for caring enough to read this.  Pass it on if you feel the need.  All funds will be donated to BridgeIISports so that others can experience this.


Thanks.

My name is Sharon Johnson and i want to testify of the good work done by a faithful Dr uko a spell caster. in my life i never thought there is such thing as spiritual intercession. my problem started nine months back when the father of my kids started putting up some strange behavior, i never knew he was having an affair outside our matrimonial home. it dawn on me on that faithful day 19th of April 21st 4:23pm when he came to the house to pick his things that was when i knew that situation has gotten out of hand and he then told me he was quitting the marriage which i have built for over five years, i was confused and dumbfounded i called on family and friends but to no avail. two months after i started having problem with my kids welfare rent-age and all of it, i really went through hell. until a day i was browsing on the internet and i happen to meet a spell caster i never believed on this but i needed my man back so i gave the spell caster my problem at first i never trusted him so i was just doing it but you know a problem shared is half solved after a week my husband called me telling me that he his coming back home and that was all. now we are living happily and i still do contact him on this email:ukospelltemple@yahoo.com

I am mrs mary Morgan from UK, i want to share a testimony of my life to every one. i was married to my husband George Morgan, i love him so much we have been married for 5 years now with two kids. when he went for a vacation to France he meant a lady called Clara, he told me that he is no longer interested in the marriage any more. i was so confuse and seeking for help, i don't know what to do until I met my friend miss Florida and told her about my problem. she told me not to worry about it that she had a similar problem before and introduce me to a man called prophet solution who cast a spell on her ex and bring him back to her after 3days. Miss Florida ask me to contact prophet solution. I contacted him to help me bring back my husband and he ask me not to worry about it that the gods of his fore-fathers will fight for me. He told me by three days he will re- unite me and my husband together. After three day my husband called and told me he is coming back to sought out things with me, I was surprise when I saw him and he started crying for forgiveness. Right now I am the happiest woman on earth for what this great spell caster did for me and my husband, you can contact prophet solution on any problem in this world, he is very nice, here is his contact eduduspellsolutiontemple@gmail .com He is the best spell caster

Hello, my name is Rose Winnse, I'm from USA. I want to inform you all that there is a spell caster that is genuine and real. I never really believed in any of these things but when I was losing Tarique, I needed him so badly. I found in a site consultant about DR AISABU spells and i ordered a love spell. 24 hours later,i got a phone call from him. Tarique was his old self again and wanted to come back to me! Not only come back, the spell caster opened him up to how much I loved and needed him. Spell Casting isn't brainwashing, but they opened his eyes to how much we have to share together and he came back confessing how much he loved me. I recommend anyone who is in my old situation to try it. It will bring you wonderful surprises as well as your lover back to you. The way things were meant to be." you can contact the spell caster on aisabulovespell@gmail.com. he's very nice and great spell caster, he can help you solve any problem contact him on his email. i promise you will share testimonies just like me.

My name is Cheney from United Kingdom. I never believed in love spells or magic until i met this spell caster once when i went to Africa in February this year on a business summit. I meant a man whos name is DR.EAGOGO he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back ones gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .Im now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 3 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 3years. I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided, skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 7 days when i returned to Canada, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didnt believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is eagogotemple@yahoo.com

Nolan, I just read about what happen you and it me mad that someone would do something so ugly. Here's someone who is trying to help others and this animal goes and steals from you and people you are trying help. I hope and pray that you and your team acheive everything you want and need. In my eyes you are the "Martin Luther King, Jr." for everyone. You are my HERO! Keep up the good work.

Nolan and my daughter Alyssa play on the same team..When my daughter heard about this,she said once she has her birthday,she was going to donate all her money to Nolan..The difference Bridge II Sports has made on our children,IS UNBELIEVEABLE!! Nolan is a great kid..To be able to donate this money to Bridge II Sports so more kids can join us and also for the ones who are already on the team can participate in more sports... I really believe in Karma..YOU DO UGLY,YOU GET UGLY..I believe there is a place in hell for anyone who steals,let alone steals from and child and then worst of all to steal from a child with disablities.. Thank you to everyone who has donated and to the ones who havent been able to but left their thoughts and feelings..I know Alyssa loves to read them as I am sure all kids on the JR THUNDER team.. To know there is still good out in this world puts a smile on all our faces. GOD BLESS

I just saw Nolan's story on the internet news a little while ago and at first I was floored by the callousness an individual would show in stealing from a kid who is just trying to raise money for his team. But then I saw Nolan's positive attitude and kindness, even towards the person who stole from him and it warmed my heart! You Nolan, have been an uplifting influence on the world around you, you have inspired others to do good and it is blooming like a beautiful flower! Bless you and your family!

Nolan, you show such amazing strength and courage for someone so young, and you truly are an inspiration. I am sure that you will be " ‘... the Martin Luther King Jr. of disabled people.’ " just as you told your mom.

I am so touched by the courage and strength you have Nolan, "you are one amazing young man". And I sure hope you don't mind if I look upon your amazing strength as a sort of guide to see me through my health issue. Follow your dreams, I see you follow your goals and don't give up...(Like I need to tell you :) )....Your story has restored my faith in mankind...... And I can not wait to see you in one of the big time "wheel chair teams", I will be watching for you and you will be my one and only "#1 Sports Idiol"! I donate only to the Veterans but I am going to be honored to donate to the BridgeII Sports on a regular basis, as soon as I am able. God Bless you and your family!

it's comforting to know that there are still amazing people out there who will look out for someone in a time like this. Nolan, I wish you all the happiness and success in your basketball. Always remember that you are not disabled; you are capable of believing in your dreams and going for them no matter what odds there are. Your positivity and perserverance is all the strength and courage this world needs. As long as you keep shining the way you do, no evil will come to you. Thank you for your beautiful soul. It's what the world needs to experience.

I just read the story about your fund raising. I am appalled at how this person could have been so terrible to steal the money you were raising for this worthy cause. I'm sure this will come back to haunt him and the sooner the better. Keep up your work with Bridge II Sports.
