Help Us Carry Him Home

It is with a very heavy heart that we are letting everyone know Jeff Beard Jr. one of the Operation Build Up team mates was in a serious motorcycle accident.  He has many boken bones, and road rash all over his body, arms, legs, back etc.

Anyone that knows Jeff understands that he is truly a one of a kind person.  Always helping others,  and putting himself last.  When we started our mission he was our very first volunteer and has been there by our side since.  Volunteering hundreds if not thousands of hours to assist struggling veterans in need by fixing vehicles that we surprise them with, free of charge, truly dedicated to our countries heroes.  He is an angel for so many in need.....

As he suffers and is out of work he still is putting himself last, saying I'll find a way to figure it out.. "I'll just sell things if I have to.." Jeff owns a home, pays all of the bills, for himself and his mom that lives with him.

I'm really hoping that as a community we all rally behind Jeff.  I am a strong believer that when someone lives their life taking care of others in their darkest hour god sends angels to take care of them...  The goal above his weekly pay multiplied by the number of weeks he will be out of work which is substantial.. If we can carry him until he is healthy enough to take care of himself again it would eleviate a lot of stress.  Please help us support him in his hour of need..
