An Update and a Bleg (UPDATED)

I know that the last time that y'all heard from me, I was lamenting my loss from ten years ago. Such is the nature of loss.

My life has changed dramatically since late June. Yes, it is all for the good of the world, too.

Anyhoo, my future and the future of my family is pretty much determined and we require your help to make things start out in the right direction. We are starting a non-profit that is going to center on helping individuals in small towns across this country, among other things. I think that we can all agree that small town folks in this country have been ignored for long enough.

This is where y'all come in. We are not approved just yet, so don't donate a bunch of money, hopefully we will have that distinction very soon. But! We already have someone that is in dire need of help and this cannot wait.

Remember W-A-Y back in July 2014 when the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge blowed up on the webby-nets? Well, there is a disease that is similar to ALS called Childhood Cerebral Adrenoleukodystrophy and it affects younger boys. We know such a child.

This young boy has gone from a vibrant, active child last December to someone that has lost almost all motor skills, the ability to talk, and is bedridden or wheelchair bound. It was brutally swift and the resources of the family are miniscule to say the least.

They need a good, dependable car and badly. We need your help to make that happen. At the top right of this page, just under my email and RSS feed buttons, is a link to my Pay Pal marked "Donate." Do it.

Send this post to everyone you know and get them to donate. Give five bucks, give a hundred bucks, give a thousand, just give some cash. I will compile a list of all those people who donate and I will put you on my list of folks to spam like crazy once this non-profit gets off the ground for good, too. (<<---This is a joke. Seriously.) Y'all know me. If there is one thing in this world you know about me it is that I always do what I say I am going to do. Make this happen for this kid and his family, please. Oh, and I might bring back College Gameday for a couple of weeks during the end of this season if y'all win at this thing. Hit your knees right now for this boy and his folks, too. Please take the time to comment.
