Giving Back Opportunity: Local Family Needs Our Help
One of the reasons I love couponing the most is the ability it gives me to share and donate more than I would otherwise be in a position to. So when we hear about opportunities to give back, we like to pass them on so if couponing has allowed you an ample stockpile and you have a few things to spare, you too can help out!
This opportunity springs from a heart-wrenching story (you can read the full story HERE). The short version is that Jodi Bryant, a 4th grade teacher, gave birth to a bouncing baby boy last month. The same day she brought new life into this world, she learned that one would be taken from her shortly. Her husband had been diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer. The average survival rate is twelve short months, and after having an emergency surgery to remove his tumor he is now disabled and will require round the clock care.
Friends and coworkers of the Bryant family have stepped up to the plate and organized a great local fundraiser/silent auction that will take place in 2 days. The goal is to raise enough money for Jodi Bryant to take a leave of absence from her teaching job to care for her newborn and her husband.
Silent Auction for the Bryant Family
Where: Chapparal Elementary School, 1155 N. Deer Creek Lane Meridian, ID
When: Wednesday, February 1st from 5:30-7 pm
What: Silent auction on amazing prizes including Roaring Springs and Wahooz passes, restaurant gifts cards and more. We even donated a Kindle to that will be in a raffle!!
If you are unable to attend that great event, you can still help! You can help feed the Bryant family by donating a portion of your stockpile!
