Make a Difference for Doretha

Make a Difference Today

Hello all I am Ryan Gibson RRM of the Procter and Gamble General Offices. I am reaching out to you in hopes of receiving support for one of our longest tenured employees, Doretha Brown. Doretha has worked in the P&G mailroom for over 25 years and has supported our team since 2006. Doretha is an absolute star, she loves our company and her work, and is the most genuine and kind person you could ever meet. Unfortunately, she is in the midst of a life or death battle with Cancer and can no longer safely work. I have started a Go Fund Me account and hope to raise $5,000 to help Doretha through her struggle with mounting medical bills and other expenses. Any support would be most appreciated.

I know most of you do not know Doretha so to close that gap I would like to tell you a story that exemplifies the kind of person she is. Several years ago, one of our receptionist Hannah stopped Doretha as she was coming into the building, Hannah complimented her shoes and asked where they were purchased and their cost so she could purchase a like pair. Doretha gladly exchanged the information. Hannah went on to say that she was going to save up over the next few paychecks in order to purchase the shoes. Hannah, a single mother of two, had significant financial struggles at the time and was just barely scraping by. Two days later, a new pair of shoes showed up at Hannah’s desk without even a single note identifying where they came from. Obviously knowing who brought them, Hannah approached Doretha with a heartfelt thank you and offered to pay Doretha back over time. Not wanting any credit for the act or repayment, Doretha simply stated “You are welcome, these shoes are a gift because I like you, know what it’s like to struggle.” This story personifies the way Doretha lives her life, loves her peers, and cares for others in the most selfless ways. Now she needs help with her “new shoes” and I plead for your support to make that happen.

 

Thank you,

Ryan
