Let's help Payton

Hey friends here at the Daily Paul,

A good friend of mine has a special needs daughter that is 4 years old, and they are presently not in a financial position to purchase some needed medical equipment for her, specifically a RIfton Pace Gait Trainer ( http://www.rifton.com/products/mobility/pacergaittrainers/K5... ) and a Drive Medical Pediatric Tilt-In-Space Wheelchair ( http://www.amazon.com/Drive-Medical-Pediatric-Tilt-In-Space-... ).

We have created a ChipIn page to try and raise the amount they need to purchase these two items, and seeing as how this is the Daily Paul, and, because I know what we are capable of when it comes to supporting a cause, I would love to see people donate. It doesnt' matter if it is $1 or $100 or more or anything in between. The goal here is to get this little girl her gear.

Let's help this little girl out. The total needed is only $2500 and we have already collected $230 last time I checked.

Sure, this has nothing to do with Politics, but it does have to do do with helping people just because we can. I dropped a $50 on this earlier today, and will be donating more soon. I plan on, in the course of the next week, donating at least a total of $200 myself Let's get this little girl what she needs. Here is the link, please go donate.

Another Update: $1085 raised

Another Update:

$1085 raised so far.
Gait Trainer was found online and purchased at significant savings
Found a wheelchair online and when I inquired about it the people that own it donated it.

Next up: some orthopedic leg braces and a pink paint job for the Tilt-In-Space wheelchair.

Fuckin' Aye people are awesome...There is still time to help, we need to gather up another $1415 to hit the goal, all of which will be used for her medical equipment and care.

Update and shameless self-bump

We are now up to $875 of the $2500 needed for this equipment. I don't see who the donors are because I didn't create the ChipIn page, but if you have donated, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

If you haven't, please do, these are my friends, and I would be happy to put you in touch with them directly if you are apprehensive.

Thanks

Greg

Americans are good people. Why does our government act the opposite way?

That could be your little girl or grandchild!

Ecorob,

Thank you so much for your donation. That is another step closer to getting her her medical equipment. I really can't express how much it means to me to see everyone that is willing to help a family and their child.

Thank you,

As I mentioned before, I know them personally. I failed to mention that I have been friends with her dad for around 37 years now. They are great people, please help if you can. I would love nothing more than to see this little girl get the equipment she needs :)

Good Luck

I don't know

I mean no offense, when I suggest you contact the Bishop in your Catholic Parrish. As a Catholic, we give quiet a bit for needs such as each of yours. May God Bless you abundantly! Ask....

I'm an atheist, and I am

I'm an atheist, and I am unable to enter a Church for reasons I care not to discuss. In fact, where I live, I probably couldn't even locate a Church. We have already collected $230 (including my $50 donation) as of the last time I checked. :) It will happen...
