This made the news here in MN a couple of days ago. I had it on in the background and wasn't really paying close attention until I heard "he enjoys hunting, fishing, and four-wheeling". I had to rewind the TV and l watch. No plea for money, no GoFundMe link, just a simple request from a sick young man wanting to get 190 Christmas cards. I figured for the cost of a stamp and a card, I can help him reach his goal. Since this isn't a fundraising request and a guy can send the card totally anonymous, I figured I'd post in case anybody else would like to brighten this young outdoorsman's day.

Thanks for posting the link. Will send the young man a card for sure.

We’ve sure got a lot to be thankful for. Puts things into perspective for sure.

Just bought a card for Drake, sending it tomorrow. Just realized its the first Xmas card I've ever sent and I'm 47 yrs old.

From: Chuckster

So I've got a nice Christmas card for him with elk bedded in the snow. I also have some unopened elk hunting videos including the truth #10 & #14 along with some mossback videos. Do you think it would be appropriate to send to him?

From: drycreek
11-Dec-18
Me too Nimrod, but it's handed off to the official xmas card sender of this household.

From: ben h

My 1st Christmas card too, but I'm only 42 years old. I'm in a smaller office now with only 6 people, so we don't have an admin to do it for us so we had to get our own cards. Sent today. Hope he gets a ton more than 190; he's got 2 dozen or so right here.

From: cervus
11-Dec-18
I sent a letter this morning also. I think it would be appropriate Chuckster, sounds like he can't get out himself and I know that watching those sort of videos would brighten my day if I was stuck inside as an 8 year old boy.
