Guys, you have no idea (unless you are dealing with childhood cancer yourself) how much help is needed out here. There are families that are falling apart – one day “normal”, the next chaos strikes!
I am under NO ILLUSION that I can help them all – at first my goal was fifty families in fifty states – HOWEVER, that currently is not God’s plan for me. We had three families but only two are active – we have been unable to reestablish contact with one of the families after the mother herself wound up in the ER…
All I am trying to do with your help is extend the hand – it’s up to the family to take it!
Let’s consider for a moment my request for $10 a month. IF and I mean a BIG IF we could get 100 people to donate, that would be $1000.00 a month that we could use to help a family in need. Perhaps a week’s worth of groceries, a late utility bill, or maybe gas to get their child to their next appointment.
You could set Codys Kids up as a monthly commitment one of two ways – use Paypal right on the site which is www.codyskids.org OR you could simply set it up as an auto pay through your bank. If you choose the latter, the address is Cods Kids c/o Sherrill Croft 4364 Bonita Road #284 Bonita CA 91902
GOD MOMENT!! PLEASE READ. I’m sitting here in McDonalds using the free wifi and a gentleman begins speaking to me. In the course of our conversation, I mention Codys Kids (surprise!) and his eyes well up with tears. Now this is a big strapping guy – one you would never expect to get emotional like that – especially in public no less, and he proceeds to tell me that he just came from finding out that his 36 year old nephew/God son, has intestinal cancer… and it is “spreading like wildfire”!
Never mind he has FIVE children! Does his family qualify? I think so…. but of course I need your help.
Many of you indicated you would support me by posting codys site on your facebook OR send it out via your email contacts – word of mouth is great too – however, if you are going to talk about it, please be prepared with contact information for the site! Makes sense right? That’s one way talk turns to ACTION.
And speaking of ACTION, again I am asking for the following:
- PLEASE CONSIDER POSTING THE LINK ON FACEBOOK AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK (people are busy and they forget about us)
- PLEASE CONSIDER SENDING OUT THE LINK vVIA YOUR EMAIL WITH AN APPEAL TO READ ABOUT WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO DO AT www.codyskids.org
- AND, IF YOU ARE ABLE, PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING WHAT YOU CAN – TRUST ME EVERY BIT HELPS SOMEONE!
Thanks to each of you that will take the time to read this, take action, and move us a step closer to letting a family know we care…..
