Long story short - a friend of Dh & I was diagnosed with MS 3yrs ago. He lost his job, now has to live with family, etc. He's been applying for SSDI but keeps getting denied and while he does has a lawyer working on his behalf - I personally know what a PITA it is and how expensive it is.
Anyhow, he wants one of these:
He's had it posted on his FB for a few days now - asking his friends to donate $2 so that he can get one. They are "stay cool" vests. They help keep the core body temperature low. All he wants is to be able to take his niece & nephew to the park or just going for a walk during the day.
But I'm sure some of you are familiar with MS and know that the heat worsen the condition so he can't leave the house during the day and sometimes not even at nights because it's just to hot.
This guy has one of the biggest hearts that I've ever met and I want to try to get him one of those vests. I've already offered him new shoes because his current ones were making it hard for him to walk 100ft before being in pain but his dad beat me to it lol
So here's where I need help:
How can I fund raise or What can I do to raise the money?
The vest is about $200.00 so if I can get $5/person then I only need 40 people to donate.
