Fundraiser Details

On Valentines day 2014 Cpl Sue Downes US Army Ret. came home to fire trucks and a burning home. Her home and beloved dog were lost in the fire. Sue is a two time Purple Heart recipient that lost both leggs in Afghanistan. Luckily Sue and her children were not home at the time and were not physically hurt. The home she had was a temporary residence until she was able to get the handicap accessible home she needs and deserves. She has fought many obstacles since being severely wounded and her path has been long and painful. We ask you to be kind and generous in helping us build her home and help rebuild her life.

Freedom independednce and the American dream

Thank you

Well friends in a matter of about 8 hours we raised more than $4,000. I spoke with Sue earlier and the kindness of you all means more to her than any words I can write here. I sincerely want to thank you all for your kind words and generosity. Please continue to support this and share it with your friends. If there was ever anything we could really say about facebook is that sometimes it's good for more than passing jokes and pictures to our friends. We can use it to change someones life.

Sincerely,
