My lifelong friend, Ed is the Captain of a local Fire Department. Recently, his baby sister, Kim passed away. Just a few days later, his wife Christy suffered a massive stroke. She nearly died and she spent a long time in ICU. She is still hospitalized and we are not sure yet the extent of the damage. Testing is on-going and the final prognosis has not yet been rendered. Ed is a selfless servant, a man who gives far beyond his last dollar, a First Responder who is slefless in every way. A man who risks his life daily is now in need of our help, he is completely exhausted emotionally and our supprt would make a huge impact in his and his wife's lives right now.
He had promised Christy a fence for their house before all of this transpired and she was really excited about having this fence installed. It was a dream of hers to have it done for their cute little house and it was scheduled to be installed the week she was taken by ambulance to the hospital with a massive stroke. The morning after it happened, in tears, he asked me to call the Contractor for him and cancel the fence he promised her because he knew there was no way he could pay for it on his salary while going through all that he is with his sister passing and his wife in ICU. He had already torn out the old ragged fence himself and done the preparation work for the new fence.
I asked you to help me raise money as a memorial to his sister Kim, as an uplifting thing for Ed and in a desire to give Christy some joy when she returns home. We successfully raised the money necessary to have this fence completed and the contractor was notified (and, he substantially reduced the cost of the fence to help this cause as well). Christy will be so blessed by all of that and Kim's memory will be honored by it for many years to come. Thank you!
Our ministry, Love Bears All, Inc. will continue to sponsor this fundraising event for the coverage of the premiums and deductibles that Ed & Christy are responsible for to take her through rehab and eventually set her up at home. Their insurance does not cover the whole need. They have massive amounts of money that will need to be paid at the end of this.
As a 501(c)(3), we can provide you with a receipt for tax purposes, if you need one (simply request one by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org after you donate and, once the funds clear, we will generate a tax receipt for you). GoFundMe Charity also provides you with a receipt.
Please help us raise these funds for Ed and Christy.
Thank you and God bless you!
