Helping the Blocksom’s

$27,772 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 721 people in 20 days
After reading the story about Robert Blocksom’s love and dedication to his wife, I couldn’t sit back and not help.

**To those asking if I have made direct contact with Bob, the answer is yes. We have been in contact and FaceTimed. We are hoping to one day meet in person. I have also been in contact with other family members of the Blocksom family. Although at first they had thought to put a family member in charge of the funds, it has been decided that Bob himself will be managing the withdrawal of the funds.**

To help pay for his wife’s mounting medical bills, Robert Blocksom is looking to come out of retirement. But instead of helping others with their financial planning as he had done for so many years, the 87-year-old is aiming to hit the road as a truck driver.

Hello everyone! I wanted to share an update with all of you. GoFundMe reached out to Bob to let him know that due to the fact that he has an American bank account, and the funds are in Canadian dollars, he is unable to withdraw the funds from the campaign himself. When I set up this campaign, I did not realize the difficulties involved in me and Bob being in different countries. I also did not want part in the withdrawal of the funds - I wanted Bob and his wife to be able to withdraw these funds as they please, and on their own. Although Bob is the beneficiary of this campaign, there has been a change in the withdrawal of the funds. Unfortunately, with the funds being in CAD, Bob needs a Canadian to withdraw the funds. He has asked me and trusted me to do this for him. I am working with GoFundMe to get this set up so that I can internationally wire the money, in USD to Bob as soon as possible. As soon as Bob has received the money, I will update the campaign again for all of you wonderful people. We appreciate your support & donations so much.

Hello everyone!! I can’t believe we have almost met our 3rd goal of $25,000! How amazing. Thank you to all who have donated and shared.

I’ve received a lot of questions, regarding if I’ve had contact with Bob and his family. The answer is yes, we have had contact and we have set up a family member of his to be the beneficiary of this campaign.

Thank you again to all of you! Your generosity has really moved me.
