Please meet Tim. Tragedy struck recently when Tim’s group home, where he lived with 4 of his friends and a caretaker in Overland Park, Kansas, burned down on March 22, 2017.

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!!

SUPER EXCITING update today, for all fans and GoFundMe supporters of Tim Bartow. Through the kindness of the Noisy Nest theater group in Beverly Hills, CA, Tim and his mother Liz will experience a reading of his screenplay called Jimmy's World tonight in Los Angeles! A dream come true. And the best part is that you can watch it live on Facebook by going to the Noisy Nest Facebook page tonight at 8pm Pacific (11pm Eastern/10pm Central/9pm Mountain) and share in this once-in-a-lifetime event.

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.

Hello all of you amazing Friends of Tim,

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:

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/humankind/2017/07/07/hed-never-been-able-walk-but-vr-allowed-him-fly/103498586/

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,
Pam (Huling)

You are an inspiration. While this just a little, if many can partially match, match, or exceed this amount the total I'm sure can be a huge help. The hidden cost of being limited in mobility is quite high. Let's help this young man out, and with VR even literally see the world, and help enable him with his dream of being a film maker. Best wishes!!!
