This is wonderful that some people try and do things like that.

I will stop by and contribute a small part. After all, I am a long time customer, thus the car does not need anything (right now), it is always good to see Denny.

I would check on the van though. $19,000 for a 2005? There is a company in Kentucky, they sell them, around the same year and around some 80,000 miles, for around $10,000 each. I looked at vans there, really great company. They even offer either side or rear entrance, and all of them are completely powered.

I think it's a great idea for the community to come together and support Terry.  I heard about Ann Curry and her "26 Acts of Kindness" going viral.   What if as a community each of us did 26 acts of kindness starting with Terry?  What an impact we could have.  Here's my #1 act going out  to Terry.

What a wonderful, caring goal.

I've donated, and hope other do, too.

I love the 26 acts of kindness highlighted earlier....what a great way to countdown. 

My wishes of a Happy Holiday season and a very happy, safe and healthy New Years!

Come on Elkhart, City with a Heart, pony up.  Sounds like a good cause for Art Decio, Elkhartan of the year, or any myriad of rich Elkhartans.

I have not heard so much about the ridiculously endowed Elkhart Community Foundation yet.    

While the Foundation could not donate directly to this individual - They could provide matching subsidies for handicapped accessibility for everyone in the County. 

I am going to go out on a limb and predict that the Community Foundation is gong to have a really hard time putting money out there and is going to be really reticent about funding and creating NEW and innovative programs which will cramp their ability to be effective.  It's akin to a big corporation versus many smaller donors to many different organizations being more "entrepreneurial."

About the only thing that I heard the Foundation commit to is more support for daycare.  This is by far the most business friendly subsidy known to man and one that Mitch Daniels already directed a whole gobby bit of resources to - Oh and all day Kindergarten too which is daycare's closest sibling.  

Nothing like making it easier to subsidize the already flooded labor market with more working moms to keep wages depressed.

I look forward to seeing what the Foundation does with their massive unprecedented war chest for community charity.  Authoritarian charity has now arrived in full force.

Should be fun to watch the Conservative Board of the "Fathers of the County" tiptoe their way forward on this one.  

Being so well endowed means that they will do everything possible to make sure they don't step on their own dks which will mean some slow careful steps.
