Yesterday I was on Facebook and I read a story about Kevin the Wonder Kid.
I have known his foster Mom for years, but I did not know the whole story. I knew that she had a child who was ill, but I did not know she had chosen to be his foster mom when he was sick as a baby, and had continued to choose to be there for this child every day of his life.
Last year, she showed up at my store for coffee. She brought me a card and a small gift to thank me for being me. I was touched by her kindness and still had no idea about the woman she really was.
Yesterday, I read this story. This morning, I read her status update mentioning the mini van she really wants. I can imagine this mini van will make her life easier. Easier for her to care for her son, easier for her to take him to CHEO to get the support she needs to keep him healthy and alive.
I decided in that moment that I would help. She does not know yet, but I am enlisting every resource I have to help her raise $25,000 to buy this van.
I cannot do it alone, and I am touched by the number of people who have already messaged me to ask how they can be part of my kindness project. You can donate here. The only way I know how to do this quickly is to set up a payment via PayPal where you can donate what you can to help with this cause. I will be keeping a list of all the individuals who donate and I will be publishing their names and letting everyone know when we are ready to buy the van.
Thank you so much for donating and/or for just sharing this post. Let’s make this happen within the next 25 days!
Please note – the family has requested we remove the photo of Kevin to protect his privacy.
