My birthday wish… Will you help me help 30 ALS families for my 30th birthday?
Augie Neito, thoughtfully surprised me and created this fundraiser page for my future caregiving expenses. To expand his kindness, my family and I have decided together to re-gift this to 30 ALS families. ALL donations will be divided evenly to these families. We are collecting photos from everyone and will share their names here in the next few days with their consent.
I have an overwhelming feeling of humility and gratefulness in my heart. Grateful for the abilities that I still have and for all the support that has uplifted my family and I. At the same time, I also cannot imagine what it must be like for the families that may not have the same opportunities. So, for the following weeks, I would love to celebrate life with all of you by offering a gift to 30 other families that truly need our support. I want to share the love you have given me because it has brought so much inspiration, strength and hope to our famiIy.
I was told that this may be too ambitious. But I feel the contrary. I feel inspired. This disease does not have to be a death sentence. Life with ALS can be meaningful and beautiful. Let's show the world.
Initial post from Augie: Happy 30th Birthday to my good friend Anthony Carbajal who single handidly $4 million for ALS TDI during the Ice Bucket Challenge in 2014! As you know, living with ALS isn't cheap so I'd like to ask all of our social media friends to join me in a "30 for 30" challenge. Click the link and donate $30 for Anthony's 30th Birthday. 100% of funds raised will help Anthony and his family with caregiving expenses!!!
