Terminally ill Christmas wish
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.
You said it Mitch, don't know what you got until its gone. Drake is on my list.
Card will be sent tomorrow. Man that was tough to read.
Card will go out tomorrow
Thanks for sharing- i'll send a card tomorrow.
Just wrote him a note. Will mail tomorrow. Thankyou for sharing. Always gets to me when a young man has to deal with that kind of stuff. Heartbreaking.
Thanks for posting. Maybe he will get one from Australia. ;-)
I`m in.....your a good man Jared.
Card sent from Tn it was a tough read coach O will cheer him up if anyone can Lewis
Sending one out today. Sure hope he gets way more than 190.
Headed for the post office right now. Mostly just wanted to bump this up to the top again.
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.
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?
Me too Nimrod, but it's handed off to the official xmas card sender of this household.
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.
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.
This is great! Keep em coming boys.
You guys rock! Heading to the store for a card right now...
Done. My fist Christmas card as well.
Sending his card tomorrow, had the kiddos sign it. I hope he gets thousands.
I'm 46 and it's my first card too! Got my wife and kids to sign as well. Keep it up guys lets get Drake a whole pile of Bowsite Christmas cards!!!
The card and videos are going out this morning.
Went to the post office. Told the lady what they were for and she waived the fees for the packaging I needed. You guys rock!! I hope Drake gets at least 1K cards.
My card will go out to young Mr. Drake. Loved that picture of him and Coach "O".
Done I'm also going to purchase him a membership to our state Bowhunting assoc. (NBA)
Card sent. Word is he's already received thousands!
That's awesome Trax, I'd like to hear a follow-up on this.
Card sent. Thank you for sharing. Tough not to tear up.
14,000 so far. Hopefully this works:
Card sent today with a bunch of trail cam pics from this year.
Card send today with a bunch of elk stickers. Keep them coming!
I love you guys, sure puts life in perspective fast.
Done. I hope Drake gets worn out opening cards and falls asleep with a big smile on his face.
I sent it to a few family members too to help out. Grandma just emailed me and said she got over 100 so far.
Done, only Christmas card we sent out this year. I'd like to see what the daily mail delivery looks like and his smiling face when he receives.
In morning's mail. Thanks for this information.
Dropping a card in the mail today.
In mail tomorrow morning.
I know that prayer works. Interesting article about a young girl that had the same condition in Teas.
Checked online and Drake is at 14,000 cards currently
