A truck for John

Today Nikki and I are asking you to help us raise some money to get a truck for John. His transmission went out and his engine block is damaged on his old truck and cannot be repaired. John is an 83 year old hard working man living on a fixed income and struggling to earn an honest living... At 83 he is still working! He is one of the kindest people Nikki and I have ever met and we need to help him.
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.
