My name is Daisy... I’m a native of Sheridan, Wy... many of you know me for my efforts related to previous national disasters, specifically the 3 state historical Midwest wildfires of 2016!
As I’m sitting here watching the recent tragic events unfold in my neighboring state of Nebraska.... I realized I need to get in there to help!
I retired from truck driving in Sept... as a truck driver, the feeling of helplessness doesn’t set well knowing how pivotal we are to the needs of communities, especially the needs of those in disaster zones!
Myself, my trucks and trailers have volunteered in agriculture relief efforts in years prior, not to mention the many hurricane and tornado aftermath zones!
2016, I was in in Ashland, Ks for the historical wildfires where I delivered life saving hay and calf milk replacer to farmers and ranchers in need... 2018, I loaded up with thousands of dollars in fencing materials to help rebuild fences around much needed pasture lands in north eastern Montana after their massive wildfires... here it is 2019, and Nebraska is calling!
I set the limit high.... and it may or may not reach that goal... I hope it does! Ive seen this country do amazing things when their fellow man and woman has needed them!
If we can do this... I will donate my artic package RV to a displaced family in eastern Nebraska as they attempt to rebuild their lives! (No one in mind as of yet!)
And to pull it all together... I will donate “Shotgun Shelly”, my last and final truck to an agricultural family who’s livelihood has been swept down stream by the raging ice and and flood waters! I won’t even stop at that... I’ll pitch in the flatbed trailer too, and use the donations to load it down with supplies!
Shelly was the first truck I ever bought..: she just acquired a brand new platinum rebuild on her C-15 motor and letting go of her will be one of the hardest things I’ve had to do! There’s over a million miles of fond memories in that old girl...
But I’m onto the next phase in my life, and it’s time for Shelly to carry on with hers! She will be a blessing to a farmer or rancher as they work to rebuild all that’s been lost!
I understand everyone’s skeptical of gofundme campaigns... I assure you, I have the track record and the references to give you confidence in this one!
So let’s do this.... one family will receive a home and another will receive a semi and flatbed trailer slammed full of supplies!
