A friend of mine is having a fund-raiser to get himself a wheelchair that he can't afford. He has a job and pays his own bills, and rather than asking the government to give him some of your tax money for his chair, he is asking the community if they can help.
I respect this, and this is how I wish things were done.
Please visit his fund-raising site, and please, I understand times are hard, so if you can't donate, just give him a share of Facebook.
Thanks ahead of time.
Here's the link:
