While the City of Toledo is praying for Mayor D. Michael Collins’ full recovery from a cardiac arrest– the area is battling crippling winter conditions that have closed local school.

A couple hours after learning of Mr. Collins’ health, I used Facebook to reach fellow parents of NW Ohio and asked for their help.

“Attention Parents: Due to the fact that there is no school tomorrow– I have a favor and special request.

Can you ask your child to make a Get Well picture for Mayor Collins?

You can tag me in it, or use the hashtag ‪#‎FightMayorFight‬

There is nothing better for a hurting soul, than to see the artwork of a child.

You can take a picture of their drawing, or them holding it or even scan it.. I think it would be a beautiful gesture for his family and friends.”

The post has been shared over 200 times, including TPS Superintendent Dr. Romules Durant.  The response has been amazing and appreciated.

While the Mayor’s wife and family wait at his bedside,  what better reading material than love-filled pictures and cards.

If your child has yet to submit emailing me, or by posting it to Facebook here.

If you wish to mail your Get Well picture to the Mayor…

Please send it to:

Get Well Mayor Collins
