A truck for John
$13,080 of $4,000 goal
Eight years ago I met John... he was mowing a yard down the road from my house and I asked him how much he would charge. When I returned home, my yard was cut. For 8 years John has been cutting our grass and he only asks for $20. We always give him more. Sometimes, near the end of the month when he is running low on money, he will come by to ask for $5 for gas in his truck. During the summer he watches his daughter's 3 kids and brings them along to help him. The only time we don't see John is if he is sick or is in the hospital. Since John's truck broke down 4 weeks ago, his daughter has dropped him off as he unloads his lawn mower, weedeater, and blower from the trunk of her car... just so he can cut our grass. If you ever met John, you would understand. His daughter is raising three kids and doesn't have the money to help him. Please help us raise some money to get him an older model work truck so he can continue to do what he loves. Nikki and I are donating some of our own money from our wedding to help him. God Bless.
Thank you to all who donated and God bless. -Robert and Nikki Norton
I would like to make a donation now and again in the future as I would like to know that this special man will be able to have a little extra money so that maybe he can cut back a little as time goes on. Nobody should be having to mow yards in the terrible humidity and heat of a Florida summer if you are out of your twenties! Can you please tell me if I can make a donation at this GoFundMe site, or do you have a problem with contacting me privately with your address? Thank you for taking the time to care about this gentleman and to let people know about his need. I hope to be able to contribute to his "retirement fund".

My new found hero!!!!
Please go on my go fund me page and donat@melanie price thank you
I am so happy to have donated. John's story was touching and sincere. It is unfortunate that at his age he still has to earn a living this way. I only wish I could be there to see him get his new truck and see the happiness in his eyes to know that other people care. Can't wait to see the photos.
Wow! Nice fund raising and great Job to the Nortons! This is exciting - yes - please post some pics.
It shows John now has 12,000 dollars yet isnt interested in a new vehicle. Will whomever set up the fund at least buy the "family" a vehicle that the faughter can use to assist John with mowing, and as time goes by perhaps John would decide to drive himself. Hard working values in a great man. Bless you John
This is a great man !!!! He deserves every penny !!!
