Send Santa Delwyn to Disney World

Delwyn Collins, a Tampa General Hospital dishwasher for 28 years has tirelessly spearheaded the Foster Angel program each year at the hospital and has bought thousands of toys for foster kids at Christmas. It's his year-long passion. He has inspired countless others to do the same.

Raised by a single mom, Delwyn has overcome learning disabilities and lives a very simple lifestyle, riding his bike to work each day rain or shine.  

A year ago this month,  he suffered a major heart attack and we almost lost this gentle giant who has generously touched the lives of so many deserving children.

He is celebrating his birthday on September 11 and his friends, co-workers and community supporters would like to send him to a fabulous trip to Disney World as a surprise!  When asked recently, he told us he has not been there in about 30 years and that would be his dream.  Well, it's your turn to receive, Delwyn! 

We'd like to send him for a 3 night stay, 3 park visit and include hotel, transportation and meals for Delwyn and a friend. 

We need to raise this money by SEPT. 6 - We have moved up the date - with the pending Hurricane - so we can give it to him before his birthday. He is taking off on his birthday - which is Sept. 11. It's a SURPRISE! 

Hope you can help!  No one deserves it more!
