My Brother’s Keeper
What would you do for a friend? What lengths are you willing to go through to help a friend? Donate an organ? Blood or Plasma? What would you do to help someone that you know? How about someone that you don’t know?
Ecclesiastes 4:10 - New King James Version (NKJV)
10 For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, For he has no one to help him up.
What I want to accomplish:
I want you to help me show Carl that he’s not alone and that he means a lot to me and this community. Ask anyone what they know of Carl Akins and they’ll usually say something about what a great guy he is or how he’s always been a good friend. I want you to help me show him that we are grateful for his good example on keeping a good attitude throughout this extreme trial of cancer.
We all know that medical expenses can be expensive…especially cancer treatments. What I would like is for our community to come together once again and raise some money to help our out our dear friend, Carl Akins.
What I want from all of you:
Come to the 4th of July Celebration in Big Sandy’s City Park. My head will be shaved to help raise money for this fund. You can donate there or online. Tell all your friends!
Deadline: July 4th, 2013 – The ‘shaving’ will happen during the afternoon entertainment just before the fireworks.
Goal: Raise as much money as possible.
Be well & thank you,
