Tomorrow is the HopeKids Fundraiser and you have made it a success by some very generous giving. I have not been able to keep up with the personal thanks, but will be in the next few days. We are so overwhelmed with your kindness and support. Thanks to your generosity, Von has raised more than any other fundraising team by several hundred dollars.
We will stuff a briefcase full of some one dollar bills and hand these to Josh tomorrow to help Von connect with the concept of passing on your generosity as a way of saying 'thanks'.
Permit me to look back one more time this week before we wrap up the HopeKids week. This clip was taken when Von emerged from a dangerous and life-threatening fever. Some of you remember my desperate request for prayer. The next day the fever left and doctors (and us) breathed a big sigh of relief.
How do I know it was a miracle? The video shows all this energy and life in him, that was missing just the day before.
Thank you for your prayers, support, and for giving to HopeKids on Von's behalf. If you missed out and still want to give before 10am Central on Sunday, you can do so by clicking here.
