With a click & a prayer

My friend, Sandi, blogs about her adventures as a Dukan-living midwife in China. We’ve never met, but I can tell you this: she’s a fascinating woman with a great spirit and someone I would love to meet in person one day.

Sandi wrote a post on behalf of her beautiful grand-daughter, Celeste.  An excerpt:

As many of you know, Chris & I really need a wheelchair van to safely transport Celeste. As she gets older & bigger, it gets more & more difficult to lift her in & out of our vehicles. The company below is being very generous by giving away three wheelchair accessible vehicles. It would be a huge blessing and relief for us if we were to win one of them. The winner will be selected from the top 10% that rec’d the most votes. Voting is going on now & ends on Sun., May 13th. 

With one click, you, dear reader, can help this child and her parents win a mobility vehicle.  Here’s how:

  1. Click on the link to vote for Celeste.
  2. The first time  you vote, if you enter the #s 873 as the promo code, your vote counts as 5 votes! and
  3. You can vote every day until 5/13

  1. Thank you, MJ 🙂 I’m going to hold you to that meeting one day! I feel very blessed that you reported this. xoxo

  2. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing this on your blog. We greatly appreciate it and we could use all the help that we can get. With your help and many others, hopefully we’ll be able to get one of the wheelchair vans. We feel very blessed for all the support that we have been receiving. Thank you!

    • You’re very welcome, Jenni. My MIL had M.S. for 30 years and we were able to get her a mobility van in her last 10 years … she and my FIL really enjoyed the ability to get her out for hair appts, Doctor visits, and lunch with her girlfriends. I hope you win the van and if you do, please come back and tell us so!
      🙂 MJ

  3. The website is under maintenance! I’ll check back…

  4. You are such a thoughtful person. Your karma is shining bright my friend.

    • Thank you, Renee. Like I commented to someone else earlier, I can relate to the power of what that mobility chair means. I hope it works out for them and, if not, that another way is found. MJ

  5. Done!

  6. I like that good samaritan’s reversed question!
    That’s more ethical! 🙂
    Thank for sharing!
