Happy 60th Birthday Thomas

$1,662 of $1,500 goal

Raised by 113 people in 18 months
Thomas has been on campus for many years after our fellow students of North Central University gave their lives to protect and provide him with essentials. Thomas has continued since then showing the same love that we showed him by giving his iconic high-fives and being a man of his word by meeting people for coffee or anywhere he promises. This September 24th, 2016, it is Thomas' 60th birthday. I know I've only known Thomas for a year, but after seeing Thomas on campus again this year, something jolted in me to do something for him.  I want to get him a new, close to similar, leather jacket. I'm reaching out to you guys because I know a great majority of you guys admire him and I'm not entirely sure what he has or what he accepts. Just want to surprise him. If more money is raised than the goal, I plan on not only getting him a new jacket but potentially an entire outfit or two. Share your love! Every donation matters and I will make sure to acknowledge all that contributed within a card I intend on purchasing. Thank you and God bless!

P.S. We will be presenting his gift(s) to him on his birthday (September 24th, 2016) at the girls Volleyball game either during the half-time show or after the game. I believe the game is @ Trinity Bible College. The game starts at 7 pm. If anything changes, I will keep you posted.

Hey guys, so I know yesterday I challenged you guys to push the goal to $2,500 but in recent realization, I've had to change the cap to $1,500. Due to some minor setbacks, we have to change the goal to abide to legal procedures.

Bear in mind, I am so thankful and amazed by such a wonderful turn out this has become. Alumni, current students, family, and friends, all binding together as a community to provide and share the love Thomas continues to share with us. I couldn't have asked for a better outbreak!! Thank you for all who have donated. If things work in our favor (for those who didn't get a chance to donate), I want to continue this campaign, but for now we have to conclude until further notice.

Again thank you for all your love and support and now the next step is just figuring out what to do with all these generous donations!!

God moves and miracles happen!

Blessings,

Jameson

Alright, you guys asked for it! Like I said, I've been pushed to push. With the new goal of $2,500, I'm sure we can get some very good items for his wardrobe and living space. LET'S DO IT! I believe in the giving hearts that both NCU and Thomas has created over the years.

God bless,

Jameson

I can't believe this, what started as a $225 goal has been well overcame with a whopping $600. Initially, the gift was a jacket or a couple of outfits...but I've pushed to push. I will keep pushing the goal until his birthday. If we reach beyond, who knows what we could get him. I'm interested to see what you guys have in mind as well. Please share any ideas!

Also we should think about headphones as an option since I see him strolling all around the city's listening to his beats.

Jameson, I think you need to up the total of amount needed to a few thousand and think of a few new big items to bless him with. Gift cards or things for his home? Looks like he touched many people hearts and made a difference in so many lives. Started at a goal of $250 or so and now it is $600+. Let's keep going and be a blessing to him.

Thomas helped us move our kids in years ago and was always there with a smile, a high five, and acts of service. I wish we could be there to see his response to this surprise. Good things happen to good people - he is a "good people". Happy Birthday, Thomas!

Seeing his face immediately brought me back too many great experiences during my times at ncu in the late 90s! What a great way to give back to someone who has brought so much joy to so many people!

Thomas, I am donating because leather jackets are important, Furthermore we share the same name & in conclusion, I don't know who you are, I don't know what you want, but if you let my daughter go, whoops, that's from "taken". I don't know who you are, but I wish you all the best.
