We can all agree that Shawn is one of the most cherished human beings not only in our lives, but also in the lives of everyone he meets. He is a role model of how we should all view and partake in this world - with gratitude for even the smallest things and a smile on his face even when times are tough. He is hands down most deserving of the "Best Dad Ever!" award. I swear, with all life has thrown at this guy, he finds a way. He has busted his butt providing for his family through the years, and now he needs a little help from us.
Shawn's daily driver has recently given up on him after getting him around for years, and so he decided riding his bike to work would not only be good excercise and economical, it was also really his only option. After purchasing a home and caring for a family of 6 including himself, it just wasnt in the budget to consider buying a vehicle or repairing his current one for that matter.
Shawn was biking to work (about a 13 mile trip each way) and was hit by a car. Despite some road rash and a nasty wound on his head from being tossed 10 feet onto the asphalt of Military Trail, which required 9 staples, he was miraculously able to make it out with no neck, back or brain injuries. So needless to say we all agree that riding his bike to work, 26 miles a day just wont cut it anymore. So we are asking you to help with whatever you can. Really, no donation is small enough ($1, $5 etc) anything helps. We are trying to find a small pickup truck, that is good on gas and can fit a few kids in the back seat.
Thank you all for taking the time to read this and any donation you can make will truly be a tremendous help. We will also gladly accept items as donations too, anything that we could sell and use towards the funding.
Thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!!! xoxoxoxo
P.S. If you know someone that would appreciate the oppurtunity to help out Shawn and his family, please feel free to share this with them as well.
