Penny's Van

Okay, you guys see that van over on the right side of the screen?
That is for my friend Penny.

I talk about Penny a lot. She has the energy of 50 people, I think.

Penny is driving a van that is slowly falling apart. It is not
handicap accessible. The radiator is leaking. The engine is ready to
blow.

It is just not a good thing.

She has a darling little boy named Austin who turned 7 just recently.
Austin has cerebral palsy and is blind. He will spend the rest of his
life in a wheelchair.

At this time, Penny is having to lift Austin into a car seat. And
then she uses a piece of plywood to roll the wheelchair into the van.

This isn't a major problem for now. Austin is still only about 45
pounds and she is still able to lift him without assistance. But she
will not be able to do that for much longer.

Austin also has to make regular trips to the doctor. His doctors are
in Fargo and Minneapolis. Since Penny does not have a reliable
vehicle, she stresses every time she has to make the voyage to see the
doctor.

Everyone talks about this being the time for giving. Well, I would
like all of you to think about giving something for Penny's van.

If you want to reach Penny directly, you can click on her name and it
will take you to her blog. She doesn't update a lot, but she still
gets all the comments you leave.

Please help me raise enough money for at least a good down payment.

Thank you!
