Buy Tim a Home
Tim has an extremely rare form of cerebral palsy and is confined to a wheelchair. He is cognitively normal. He knows exactly what happened during the fire and is watching in amazement as your donations are coming in now.
My name is Pam Huling and I am the Chief Operating Officer of Blue Chalk Media (bluechalk.com), a video production company. Tim was featured recently--just before the fire!--in one of the most heartwarming short videos we've ever made.
Click on the link below to watch as his mother, Liz, puts virtual reality goggles on Tim for the first time. It's an incredible moment. I dare you not to be blown away along with him and to be inspired by his possibilities:
I hope you will agree that Tim deserves everything we can give him.
The goal of this campaign is to raise at least $100,000
to Buy Tim a Home where he can be safe. The home will be purchased through Life Centers of Kansas (lifecentersofkansas.com) and earmarked for him. Jessica Dalton is the Executive Director of this organization.
Tim is being sheltered in an apartment temporarily but he needs a permanent home.
YOU CAN HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN!
Tim, Liz and I can't thank you enough for the outpouring of generosity shown already. We are so grateful for your kindness!!
It's been a while but we finally have some great news to report!
We had been hoping to use the funds raised to help buy Tim a new home but after all this time, he is sadly still in temporary housing. Finding a suitable location for the disabled that is not institutional is very challenging. There is hope that a new home will be found soon but that is not guaranteed. Rather than waiting any longer, we have decided to rock Tim's world where he is now instead.
Over the holidays, Tim's mother Liz shared an exciting surprise with Tim, which came from you all: a state-of-the-art home theater system including a new 55 inch TV, surround sound, a MacBookPro computer and more! It will all be installed for him by the Geek Squad at BestBuy in the next few weeks.
You can see Tim's reaction in the attached photo. Suffice it to say that your generosity has had a HUGE impact on Tim's life and he cannot thank you enough. Nor can I. This gift will help him to develop his screenwriting and communication skills and further his career. And, when a new home is found, everything will move with him. It will be a game changer.
THANK YOU for your overwhelming kindness and patience as we have worked toward this conclusion. It means more than you know and we could not be more thrilled with the outcome!
All the best,
THANK YOU ALL for your incredible love and support. Tim is in California right now and having the time of his life. We'll be making decisions soon on how best to use the funds that you have contributed. Still being in temporary housing, the need for Tim's day-to-day living is great, but for today and right now, let's celebrate what an amazing moment this is. And gratitude to Amanda Bird and all of the good people at Noisy Nest for making this possible.
The last month has been an incredible whirlwind as Tim and his virtual reality story have gone viral online, touching people all over the world. Here is just one example of the press he has gotten:
Tim's video has been viewed more than 2.3 million times and beautiful, supportive messages have poured in via email and online. Tim and his mother Liz have been stunned and amazed by the kindness and offers of friendship and more. There is even going to be a table read of his screenplay in Beverly Hills on September 13--a dream come true!
With all of the excitement of the video, many of you dug a little deeper and discovered that Tim nearly died in the fire just after filming was completed and have opened your hearts and wallets to help make it right for him now.
Thank you for your love and concern. Please know that Tim and his mother are grateful beyond words for your generosity and we are all hopeful that we can still reach the goal of getting a suitable and accessible home for Tim so that he can continue with his mission of living a life without limits.
We can do this!! Please share with your friends and give as much as you can. We're on our way!
All the best,
