so awesome.... :)
Thank you to all who sent in their nominations for the Giving is awesome event... You are all so blessed and pretty darn awesome yourself.......
When I read the following letter, I knew this family was deserving of so much more, but here is the letter I received from Malissa in her own words...
I have been admiring your work for a while. I found your site through the Matt Logelin site. I am writing you today about your post "Giving is Awesome". I wanted to tell you about the Tanner Family. Parents Elizabeth and Mark had 4 children. About 4 years ago their 2 year old son became ill one night and they rushed him to the hospital. He passed away at the hospital that night due to an undiagnosed heart condition. Their youngest child Aaron is now very ill with a heart condition and is currently waiting for a heart and kidney transplant. Elizabeth and Aaron are now living in Westwood (they have to be close to UCLA) and waiting for the call to come that Aaron has received organs. Mark and the two older kids visit on weekends and stay longer during school breaks and holidays. As a result of these situations Mark lost a good paying job and Elizabeth can no longer work. Mark recently took a lower paying job but the family is still in the process of losing their home. I know Elizabeth cherishes photos and I'm sure a new family photo would bring joy to her when she is feeling down. The Tanners are a wonderful family who have not lost hope or faith in spite of facing so many hardships. More information on the Tanner Family can be seen here http://saveabrokenheart.com/. Thank you for your consideration.
Merry Christmas Tanner family, and Congratulations... I am looking forward to meeting you.....
