Custom Barnacle Bill Suit 5.00
here's the details. Christopher is a little 12 year old boy that lives ar the end of my road. he was born with a hole in his heart and underwent 4 major surgeries when he was just weeks old. during one of the surgeries he had a disabling stroke . he can walk but he can't run. he can't talk but he can sign language. his right arm is only 10% as his right leg. he loves nascar racing. he has 3 younger brothers that love him dearly and help him all they can. christphers parents are in their late 20's . his father works 2 jobs and his mother is a teacher's aid at the local school . they are active in their church youth groups and his father is working to become a minister. christopher now had a rare blood disorder. they removed his spleen last year but they just can't find out what is wrong. his white blood cell count is so low and his immune system so impared he can no longer go to school . needless to say all this has wrecked havoc on the families finances. I can't watch this young father carrying his son in his arms or the care the rest of the family shows for him without a tear coming into my eye. I just found out this morning that they had to let their car go back when the lease was up. they are using a loaner from her parents. I want and need to do something for them. I want the wera family to help me. I could just make a donation but i can take that same money and buy materials for a new custom suit . I did this for the airfence fund . help me do this for christopher and his family . every single penny of your 5 dollar donation will go to this family. I think enough of you know me to know this is true. I would think just send in your donation along with your name and address and phone number which will go into a general drawing and darethea can pick the recipient of the new suit right after the first of the year and then the details can be worked out then. it just feels like the right thing to do . I would really like to have a least a 1000 people donate and get into the pool. input is appreciated . I plan to do something even if this is a no go. tell me what you think. emails and phone calls are appreciated. I AM BARNACLE BILL my email is [email protected] my phone number is 859 336 7375 moderator if you have a heart you will stick this thread up at the top of the list. thak you all for your time. as always the best to all. barnacle bill and darethea

That's the little boy we help out down here. As someone who has worked in non-profit volunteer work since I was 15, I think it's AWESOME what you're doing here. I've helped out three little boys, and here are they're stories...

Freddy Place; Rare genetic disease. We raised money to help pay off his medical bills and to have a good Christmas for his family. He passed away early spring, 1999.

Matthew Clattenburg; Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. Most little kids who have this die within 4 days of being born. Matt will be celebrating his 12th birthday in August. He probably won't make it much longer because hie heart is giving out the taller he gets, and it's failing, but he has had a wonderful life, and through the work of out non-profit, we were able to help his mom get out of a rusty old Suzuki, and get a new Kia (not a hug step up, but a lot more reliable for his trips from New Hampshire to Boston for medical treatments). My mom also worked with Matt, and taught him his alphabet and how to count, and I spent many hours getting my butt wooped by him on PS2 (that kid is GOOD!!!)

Payton; Payton has Spinal Muscular Atrophy. He can't sit up, smile, cry, run, laugh, play, or do anything kids his age do. His mom is truly an angel, and she has founded Payton's Pals, which is working with the University in Southern FL to find a cure for SMA. Their benefit last June raised over $80,000.00 towards finding a cure for this crippling disease so that another mom doesn't have to go through the heartache that Payton's mom has been through. She's done amazing things for the monetary funds for this, and immeasurable work towards raising awareness.

Do you have a paypal account? I'd like to donate some money towards the fund you have going to raise money for the little boy.

this is really going well. you wouldn't believe the outpouring of help for this family. paypal donations alone are reaching the 10k mark and that dosn't include all the other gifts and donations sent via snail mail. here is a link to a web site donated to the cause. click here

I will send the $5 via paypal...and should I be the winner, I will donate the suit by putting it on ebay for high bidder to have a custom made suit...with proceeds going into this fund also.

Afterall, I don't really need a suit as bad as these people need help. I figure that I can better afford the luxury of going to go buy a suit than they can afford the bills they can't avoid.

Anybody else want to make that commitment?
