Cheap and Easy

Hey, hey, now come on, what were you thinking this post was about?  I saw this post on a trusted friend's FB page, and thought it worthy to share with you all. 

EVERYONE knows how good if feels to give this season, and especially to someone in need.  Mathew needs a new van.  Not wants, NEEDS. Please take a minute to read the post, and then, if you are so inclined, as I was, stick a buck or two in an envelope and help make a miracle happen.

From my friend Rob L.

It is Christmas, the season of giving, of helping your fellow man. I received the flyer below from my aunt Nancy, her church is trying to help someone. I am sending Nancy a donation today on behalf of my mom. If my mom were able, she would with this. Since she's not, I'll do it for both of us.

Because I love my aunt, because I want to try to help someone I don't know this Christmas, and because I know the quality of my friends, I want you to join me in helping to make this happen. All I want you to do is pull out an envelope and put ONE DOLLAR in it, and then mail it to these people. If you want to put in two or more, cool. But nobody should have an excuse why they can't spend a couple minutes, an envelope, a stamp, and a buck, to help someone. Do this for yourself, or on behalf of someone you love that isn't here to do it themselves.

Additionally, your friends might be as cool as mine, and you might want to share this with them, give them the opportunity to do join us in this for very little time and money. If so, I would appreciate it.

This is not a scam, it is a group of people trying to help someone. I want this to happen, there is no reason we can't do this.  If you are able, we would appreciate any donation you would make. You can send a donation to the Matthew Bell Van Fund, c/o Nancy Marks, 15940 Stoddard Wells Road, Sp. 23, Victorville, CA 92395.

Thanks for your help Sue, and thanks in advance to any of your readers who choose to help out. A lot of people can't afford a big donation, but a lot of people making small donations can accomplish the same thing!
