    Default Need your help with a small donation

    A friend of mine who is a retired grade school teacher and has successfully battled breast cancer twice and now volunteers at good causes in the Seattle area needs a little help to raise money for a wheelchair van, not for her but for the community home for the disabled - and they need money ASAP before the van gets away and sold to someone else.

    I never ask for money for the use and costs of running the forum, its free to use and many of you buy from other dealers, etc. If you always felt like you would like to give a little back I'd consider this a personal favor if you would donate a small amount for this cause. No amount is too small.

    Connie and I worked together several years ago on helping a destitute family (two of the kids were here students) where the father was killed walking to work. She's good people.

    Thanks in Advance!

    Thank you so much! I see three of our board members have contributed so far. That means a lot to me...I really appreciate it.

    I'm in as well. I hope they get the funds they need. We need more people like Connie in the world.

    Thank you! They really need that van and Connie (my friend) really dedicates herself to volunteering to help run the place. She has a disabled adult daughter that is in the facility and with programs like this being cut from funding, they have to rely on good people to keep things going. Here's the van they are trying to purchase:

    https://seattle.craigslist.org/tac/cto/6061403373.html

    The owner of the van, whom I have communicated with, is named Beth and she has agreed to sell it to them for $ 30,000. Her husband was 82 years old and had ALS, he passed away quickly from the disease and now she has no need for the van. Spread the word if you can. The GAPP house can't afford to make payments on it, and there is still a long way to go to the acquisition price.

    No one has to be a big donor, even $ 5 helps. Many hands make light work.

    Thank YOU for helping! Many of the forum members have contributed and its much appreciated.

    I know they can't get any more money for the van buy other than what is raised on the Go Fund Me page. I spoke with Connie and they cannot afford to finance it, either. The only way they can buy this van for their disabled residents is through the donations made.

    So spread the word, put it on your Facebook page if you can and see if together we can all put some momentum on this worthy and right cause.
