We are Amy and Izaak Smith, and we live in Mount Laurel, NJ. We have 3 kiddos, two of which ride on the bus to school every day, thanks to an awesome bus driver, Mr. Gary.
If you know Mr. Gary, you know two things for sure...
1- He loves his job as a bus driver for Mount Laurel students which he has been doing for over 20yrs.
2 - He is a die hard Eagles fan. Every kid who rides his bus knows the Eagles fight song.
We are so blessed to have such a wonderful bus driver... one who gets our kids safely, plays the "coolest" music according to my kids, hands out Air Heads on Fridays, and lets my crazy 4 year old on the bus to talk on the speaker (see pic above).
Mr. Gary is also known for the Fishing Derby he puts on every year for children! Click this link to read the article about Mr. Gary and his passion for teaching kids to fish.
Fishing with Mr. Gary
The morning after the Eagles won the NFC, I went to congratulate Mr. Gary on the bus and he was literally crying out of excitement and gave me the biggest hug. I told my husband that night that if I could somehow win a Super Bowl ticket, I'd give it to Mr. Gary. He suggested I start a Go Fund Me page to see if we could raise enough money, so together we created this page!
We want to send him to the Super Bowl in less than two weeks and are hoping to raise over $6000 for his ticket, hotel and airfare. The amount we raise will determine exactly what is done with the money, hoping of course it is enough for the purpose of this campaign. The money will 100% be used for Mr. Gary. If we can’t raise enough for the Super Bowl, then I will look into the cost of season tickets for next season, and if we don't have enough for that, we can hopefully at least buy some home game tickets for him. We will keep you posted on this and how he will receive this gift.
Thank you in advance for rewarding someone special in our community! Let's do this!
