Last month I hosted a fundraiser for a Sylvania family with a son battling MDA. The fundraiser raised enough money to help purchase a much-needed handicap-friendly van.
From the Jimmy Kare Fundraiser Facebook Page
“This is the wheelchair accessible van that proceeds from the JIMMYKare fundraiser helped purchase. Although it’s a used van with 85,000 miles, it will allow Jimmy more mobility. Thank you to all who helped support this!!! Donations can still be made at Any Huntington bank under the Jimmy Kare fund or can be made online at giveforward.com. (Jimmy Kare)
Jimmy will continue to need financial assistance and support as his condition worsens. The family currently needs a lift to help Jimmy get in/out of chair.”
I want to thank the incredible musicians and bands who played the fundraiser and helped make the van a reality.
Thank You John LaPrarie
Thank You Whiskey Before Breakfast
Thank You Mystic Wood
Thank You Endless Envy
Thank You Measure of Time
Your generosity helped give wheels to a family starting to feel stranded on the side of a road. Thank You for kindness and helping Jimmy.
