Hi all This year, instead of gifts for his birthday, Jack would like to raise money in honor of his dad. This year's monetary gifts will be going directly to The Gift of Life, an organization that has brought John's bones to people in need. We received confirmation a few weeks ago that one John's bones were used in someone as young as 11 years old. We talked about it and this really struck Jack. While he would give anything to have his dad back, knowing that his dad lives on in someone else is the next best thing.
He can't wait to write letters to the SIXTY EIGHT people who have received pieces of his father so far. He had actually brought this idea up to me by saying "Mom, maybe this year for my birthday instead of gifts we could give money to someone. Maybe we can give money to the people that took Dad's stuff so people don't need to use snake skin anymore". Clearly, the kid is a bit confused on how they help people, but he is interested nonetheless.
He will be donating all monetary gifts received from his birthday this year. (Don't worry, I will still be spoiling the heck out of this generous boy). We thank you all in advance,
Molly Boswell, Jack Boswell, and Mary Boswell
