Well folks, no one is happier than I am that we reached our goal in 3 short weeks! Well, maybe Marshal is!! In fact, we surpassed the goal by an additional $5000 thanks to a late donation that hasn't been posted yet.
This entire campaign reminds me of the movie "It's A Wonderful Life," where George Bailey is in need and all the townspeople come to his aid. I have just been awestruck how everyone jumped on the bandwagon when they heard Marshal needed help,and donated their hard earned dollars at a time when most people need to hang on to it. The shipping companies, unions and shipping agents, as well as many other companies and scores upon scores of individuals and sailors stepped up and donated and offered their kind words of care and support. Hopefully, my next update will be accompanied by pictures of Marshal standing next to his new van. We hope to pick it up around the 19th or 20th. We're travelling to a dealership in Ohio as that is where we found the best vehicle for the best price. Marshal is very happy and can't wait to get behind the wheel and continue his work of helping others. I'm am also very happy that I was able to be a part of this, and everyone who donated should be very proud of themselves as well. Keep an eye out here and on my FB page for a look at the new van. See you soon and thanks again!!

Well everyone, we're almost there! After only 2 short weeks, the outpouring of love for Marshal has been tremendous. Everyone can look in the mirror and tell yourselves what a good thing you have done. I'm so looking forward to going with Marshal to pick up the new van in 10 days or so. He has picked out a 15 passenger van so that he can take everyone to where they need to go, all at once. No more having to wait due to size constraints. I'll be posting a picture of Marshal standing by his new van as I did with the old one. Again, thank you all for contributing . I feel so fortunate that I was able to help Marshal in his time of need, as he has helped all of us with our needs.

And so we go up, up, up! The generosity of everyone is unbelievable!! Never did I think we would almost reach our goal so quickly. One thing I do know for sure, next season when Marshal pulls up to your boat, or the airport or bus stop, make sure you look for a shiney new van with a very happy, deserving man at the wheel. I feel so fortunate that I can be a part of this campaign along with everyone else who has contributed and or written a nice note. Thank you all.

Well everyone, in 23 hours we raised another $1330!!
At this rate we'll be there before we know it. What a wonderful thing all of you are doing. The fact that everyone has found some room in their hearts, (and wallets!) to help this man when there are Christmas bills to pay, and tax time looming around the corner, shows that there are a lot of caring people on these Great Lakes. Please continue to spread the word to anyone and everyone. Thank you very, very much.
