For anyone who's ever met my Uncle Tim, you know he's one of the most selfless people on the planet. He's been involved in philanthropy his entire life, but would never in a million years ask for charity for himself.
Unfortunately, he's fallen on some tough times. Last 4th of July he had a sudden and unexpected stroke which caused permanent blindness in one eye, and limited movement in the other. Because of this, he can no longer drive or do the work that he loved.
After a year of therapy and adjusting to his new normal, Uncle Tim’s solution to regaining his independence was to pull his Chrysler PT Cruiser mountain bike out of storage, tune it up and ready it to be his main source of transportation. Not a day after he finally had everything ready to go, the bike was stolen from his back porch.....
He needed that bike. He needed some semblance of freedom of movement back, and it was taken from him. Boo.
In a perfect storm of terribleness, Uncle Tim’s sole source of income was also taken from him in the form of COVID-19. His bed and breakfast has been closed since early March.
On this 4th of July, I'm hoping to help him regain some of his independence. I'd like to get him a golf cart so he can putz around the neighborhood doing his good deeds. This is where I need your help. I'm hoping we can round up about $5,000 to help him buy back a small portion of his freedom... Who's with me?
