Enchroma: Color for my Husband!
Imagine going your whole life and never seeing the difference when the tired greens of Summer foliage give way to the fresh scarlet of Autumn leaves. I'd like to give my husband, Michael, the gift of color. Oh, he fought me on it!! "I've always been this way, " he said, "so I don't know what I'm missing." But last week all that changed! He saw the ophthalmologist, got a new prescription and this week he gave me the Green Light to start up a GoFundMe to raise the funds for Enchroma glasses for him! Michael's lost so much in life - his health - the least I can give him is the wonderful gift of color!!! Please contribute if you can and share, share, share on social media. It'll be a dream come true for both Michael...and me. Thank you!!!
Michael and I are blown away, speechless, overwhelmed and so, so grateful for the HUGE generosity of the fifteen people who so generously gave to this GoFundMe.
Ever since I heard of "Enchromas," oh! how I wanted a pair for Michael. But, y'know, he fought me on it!!! But then he got a new prescription and finally, FINALLY, acquiesced.
But I never, ever thought that we'd have it in just one short month...from just fifteen people. You may want to remain anonymous, I'm not sure, but we want to particularly thank Virginia (FOR PAYING FOR HALF!!!!) Gwendolyn, Annette, Samantha, Paula, Emily, Suzanne, Cheryl, Natasha, Carla, Bethany, Janine, Beverly and Patricia.
You have all stood by Michael and me and been so generous...but this is the cherry on the top of your kindness. And we can't thank you enough!!!
It'll be a brave new BEAUTIFUL world for the little boy who, years ago, couldn't figure out which crayon was which if it didn't have a paper wrapper with the name of the color on it. The little boy who was punished for being paralyzed over the crayons. For the young man who wanted to be a pilot, but was turned down by the Airforce. That was the day he first learned he was color blind.
But that's over now!!!
You've made us so happy. And with Thanksgiving just hours away, we have so much to be grateful for. Thank you all so very much!!!
And stay tuned for updates after Michael gets his Enchromas. It's going to be SO exciting!
Happy, Happy Thanksgiving!!
