A Call for Help

I do not usually ask for others to help with needs but I am going to ask at this time. Not for me, but for someone I know from a yahoo group.

I say know, but let me explain. She has an embroidery design site as well as a few other groups and I have come to like her and her work. She is not pushy, but offers great bargains if you machine embroider especially.

This last week an email came from her with a tremendous offer for those that machine embroider, almost giving away a bunch of designs.

Her reason?  Here is what she wrote to me:

I am not sure how much information I can give out. I was told that its best never to give out where he is stationed and where he will be deployed to for there protection.

We are a family of 4 trying to get to see him off before he is deployed the end of this summer.
We can not fly because we have an autistic child and a dog being trained to protect him (I am training the dog to search for him  in case he should ever wander off).
So we have to drive which will take a couple days. This will cause a huge financial strain on our family since my husband is the only one that works and we are barely making ends meet.I am hoping to raise money from this sale to get us there to say good bye to him and let him know that we love him and that we support him.
I have not told my son that we are trying to come up with the money to see him off. I am really scared we will not come up with enough and don’t want to let him down. I am really hoping that this sale will get us there.
Her son is being deployed and they need to have money to go see him. I am asking for everyone to help even if it is a dollar or two. Our military serve us and  leave family to protect us and serve our country. The thought of this man leaving to who knows where and his family not seeing him for the last time really bothers me.
Here is the link to her site and the bargain offer of designs. Tuckers Treasures Design Offer. Here is her home page where there is a donate button for those wanting to just donate some money to help this family. As I said, a dollar or two will not kill us but will help them see their son.
