Stretching Dollars For A Charitable Contribution


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I have a young cousin who will face numerous heart surgeries. A lot of her medical procedures are provided through Medicare/Medicaid, but the expense for her young parents and little brother to stay in the area [3 hours away from home] are very hard for the family to come up with. Wishing to make a donation, but with my own funds being tight, I took books in my house that I deemed non-necessary to a used book store to start a fund so that I can provide the young family with at least a day's

worth of expenses prior to the surgery. I have rolled pennies and nickels, and will be finding other things to do so as to meet my goal by the end of January. It also will help to take care of some of the clutter in my house!
