OK FAMILY AND FRIENDS - LETS GET MEAH TO PORTLAND TO SUPPORT HER FRIENDS AT THE LITTLE LEAGUE WORLD SERIES. As many of you know Meah has been involved with Tallmadge softball for a number of years and has forged many friendships with the young ladies she has played with over the years. This year the 12U team has WON their way to represent the Central USA in the Little League World Series in Portland. She has supported this team all year, attending local games, and then supporting them at Districts, State and finally at Regionals. She (and Jerry) has been blessed with the friendship of these ladies and well as with their families. Travelling to Portland to support her friends would be a ONCE IN A LIFETIME experience she would treasure the rest of her life. This is a big and unexpected expense for Jerry. As most of you know Jerry and Meah have been dealt some crummy cards in this game of life - BUT they have ALWAYS made the best of every situation. Their positive attitude has gotten them through a lot of TOUGH LIFE CHALLENGES. I would love for my family, and our extended family and friends to help them out with her expenses (flights, room and board). I want to help my niece get to LIVE A DREAM. You all know how big of a heart this young lady has, she is a great friend, and role model to many people young and old. We can all learn from her ,,,, she is always the first to jump in to help a friend, a person in need, to be an ear to someone who needs to vent, to support others and to give a RALLY speech when needed. My hope here is that we can find 100 people to give $10.... $10 to help this wonderful young lady know that all the good she does for others does come back full circle and let her know how much we love and appreciate all she does - getting great grades, being a great student, being a great friend, that reaching out to those who may need a friend, letting people know they are not alone, they dont have to feel bad for being different, supporting her community,,,, the list is endless.
LETS DO THIS !!!!!!!
(They are leaving for Portland on August 5 and will be there until August 14th if all goes well - so time is short)
