I was heartsick at the story of the Long's financial exploitation by one of their children. My father suffered in a similar way.

I thought that I could donate to the Long's and if others felt the same...to join in to help return what was stolen from them.


Although it's unlikely we can repurchase their house, I'm sure we can get enough for the holidays and a few new tools and a magazine here and there.


Join me if you like.

When my 9-year old son heard about the Longs and the amazing response of the fundraising, he immediately went upstairs and brought down his 11 dollars of savings. "I want to help them too," he said.

He wrote a note to the Long's to include in his donation that I thought I'd share...it made me smile.

"Dear Mr. & Mrs. Long

I love you. I'm sorry that your kids cheted you."


The Long's story has definitely touched all of us in our house.

Just amazed at the kindness. My goal was to raise $500 for a few tools and a magazine subscription for the Longs.

We just hit over $2,500! I don't know them, but I'll bet your generosity will be something they never forget. Thank you to each one of you. You are an inspiration to me as well.

I just read about the terrible harm and betrayal caused to you by people you honestly believed you could trust. What they did in return is inexcusable! You must not blame yourself in any way, Mr. Long. You acted purely out of loving-kindness. You gave from your generous and loving heart. God bless you and Mrs. Long. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
