Dad on the run.

    I just started tearing up for the first time. I was going through my emails and came across one where someone just simply "stumbled" across my thread via a google search and just donated without even knowing who I am, for the first time I am at a loss of words, the generosity of some people are truly amazing. Why this touched me in such a way I'm not sure, its funny how the oddest things move you.

    My parents said I could be anything when I grew up, so I decided to be Awesome!

      Well now you've got me choked up.

        Hello,

         

        My name is ******************, I am from ******** WI and just so happened to stumble upon your website and want to take a moment to thank you for all that you are doing. It is people like you that prove there is still good and wonderful people in this world. I would just like to know if you would like me to mail you my donation or pay through the website, also am wondering if you still have 3 bracelets left? I have a marathon I am running in 4 weeks and would love to have a bracelet to show my support. Please feel free to email me whenever you get the time. And once again thank you so much for your kind actions.

              Jimmy,

               

              People recognize when someone is doing the right thing from their heart.  Thus, I'm not surprised by the out-of-the blue responses and donations.  Bless you.

              Dad on the run.

                One more to share, I just find this incredibly moving that people are finding this thread through google..

                 

                Thanks for your response and acknowledgement.

                I am not a runner and don't post on the runners forum or  website. I actually found your post and link doing a Google search, as my two teen daughters wanted to find Boston Marathon bracelets to show their support. And I found your posting and link, etc.

                Again, thank you for doing it and I hope the Richards family benefits from the donations. They will have a long slog for a while.

                 

                So moving, I am so excited by the amount of responses. I have spent the last two hours reading email after email and updating my address/order spreadsheet.

                 

                Now its time to get off and relax for a minute before bed.
