My Handicapped brother needs help!

$6,720 of $35,000 goal

Raised by 114 people in 16 months
This is my brother David Deane! He was born with a brittle bone disease and has never walked.  Since my parents  passed away he has been on his own trying to survive!  He has never asked for anything from anybody and we love him for that but there has now come a time to ask for help in providing him with a new vehicle with hydralic lifts and hand controls for transportation.  His current vehicle is 21 years old  and no longer has heat or air conditioning.  My brother works at Walmart in Newport News, VA and needs transportation.  Our family would be so appreciative if people could help us fund him for a new vehicle.  My brother is an amazing guy and has had so many hardships to endure in his life but always keeps a great attitude!  Your help would mean the world to us!

Hello Everyone! My brother David Deane has made front page news in the Daily Press in Newport News!
Go pick up a newspaper and check it out! I am hoping this article will help him towards getting him a newer vehicle to get him active again in the community when he recovers from his recent injuries.

Hello Everyone, Please share this! I just got a message from the writer Leona Wisoker. She has asked me to tell everyone that she will match all donations for David between Oct. 7 and the end of this month up to $1,000.00.

Hello Everyone, I am sharing again the go fund me page for my handicapped brother David. Last week his lift on his van broke and dumped him out in the Walmart parking lot and he broke both legs. He is currently in Riverside Hospital recovering from two surgeries. More than ever...he needs your support to replace this old vehicle with something much more safe and in good working order! Please help!

Does anyone know somebody with the local press in Newport News? Would love to get a story going on David to get more momentum. He is so worthy of that! Please spread the word!

A few years back I worked in a Bar near Yorktown, and every Thursday night was karaoke, and without fail David would role in, he would cheer, laugh and encourage everyone throughout the night. But he too was a favorite... he would perform "What a Wonderful World ". The whole bar would stop, and listen in awe. DAVID is a wonderful kind hearted soul with a positive outlook that is contagious... blessings to you...

All right, my October matching campaign is over. We didn't quite get to the target of a thousand dollars, but that's okay! It got close enough that I handed David a check for the full amount anyway. Thank you so much, everyone who helped by donating or boosting the signal. Y'all are FANTASTIC. ...So, now, who's going to pick up and spearhead the next matching drive? Come on, I know someone out there can do it...! :D

Thank you so much, everyone who's been donating throughout October 2017! Remember, I'm matching all donations until the end of the month, with a cap of a thousand dollars. We're three quarters of the way there already, keep sharing and reminding people!

"Mr. David" as I've known him for years and years is one of Walmarts best employees. I'm always relieved to see him when I can't find some thing lol
