They are finally here! Thanks to all the amazing support for this cause from so many amazing friends, family members as well as strangers! I have 25 Kindle fire HDs with pink, blue, and purple cases ready to be donated to the children's hospital here in Augusta when they are loaded with fun apps, movies and inspirational devotionals. Seeing this all come to fruition means the world to me, all in memory of an amazing woman and her love for children that I too shared. The smiles that this will bring to so many children's faces will be priceless. I believe this is just the beginning for this project and I am very excited to see what the future holds. We were looking to have these delivered by Christmas but we are just working out a few more details before dropping them off. Thank you for believing, thank you for sharing and thank you for giving. Huge thanks to the folks at Google and go fund me as well!
I know first hand just how much of a difference these can make to a persons life going through the struggles and hardships while battling cancer. My wife's first treatment is not something that I will ever forget, as I set next to her for the hour looking around the room at so many scared faces some old and some far too young. Adrienne and I brought our laptop that day and I told her I would watch any movie with her that wanted to. Her choice was "The Princess Bride." We sat there hand in hand as she received this medication that we were praying would make a difference. Whether its a movie, book, game, devotional or any other app, the ability to lift your spirits or simply keep your mind off of reality briefly helped Adrienne tremendously and think that anyone going through this situation should be given the same opportunity.
Thank you all again for all the amazing help and support to make a positive impact on the lives of those who truly need the uplifting. These pictures are the reason this fundraiser was geared towards children battling cancer. These are just a small fraction of the many kids that Adrienne loved, spoiled and shared her beautiful smile with while she had the chance. Since we did not have the chance to have any of our own I thought it was suiting for this to benefit children, and that fact that its going to those fighting Cancer just makes it that much more dear to my hear.
