Help Aunt Sharon Get A New Van!!!

These are my new friends Chrissy and Sharon...

Sharon and her husband David adopted their daughter Chrissy 35 years ago. David passed away 22 years ago and since then Sharon has been Chrissy's caretaker. Selflessly and without complaint, Sharon has looked after Chrissy, who has cerebral palsy, every day for those 35 years. 

Her cousin Tracey says that Sharon is the kind of person that would give you the shirt off of her back and never once question why you needed it. 

Now they need help. And we are going to give it to them!

Sharon is almost 70 and living on a limited income. The van that she uses to transport Chrissy around is not going to pass its inspection this December without neccesary improvements to the rusting out floor and door that does not close. The mechanic estimates that the fix will cost around $750. 

For those that may have stumbled upon this, my name is Jeff and I run a project called Do The Next Good Thing (DTNGT). I'm donating $1,000 today to Sharon and Chrissy, whom I have never met, they are complete strangers to me. And I'm challenging you, other dear strangers, to help me bless these people. Let's raise enough money for them to buy a new van and a bit of peace of mind. 

It's Christmas time, the time for giving. 'Tis better to give than receive. I present you with a perfect opportunity this holiday season. If you're new to DTNGT and want to participate, there's even more good news. Anyone that donates at least $25 to Sharon and Chrissy, you'll go in a drawing for a free trip to Hawaii next fall!

Open your hearts today and do some good in this chaotic world of ours!

All my love,
