HELP VINCENT D'ONOFRIO HELP OTHERS FACEBOOK PAGE
As many of you know, last year when Vincent made some public appearances in Utah, a group of fans coordinated the collecting of birthday cards to present to Vincent during one of these appearances. These weren't just any birthday cards...these cards contained donations to one or more of the charities Vincent supports...and he opened each one himself. We raised quite a bit of money and it was really the beginning of our efforts as fans to help him help others.
Even though the appearances in Utah this year are a bit earlier than last year, we'd like to do the birthday card fund raiser again. To participate, simple buy or create a birthday card of your own design for Vincent to open next month. All monies collected this year will benefit David Jorgensen and his family, as described in previous posts. Donations can be made either in cash or check (made out to David Jorgensen). If you prefer to make a donation electronically, you can send money via PayPal to email@example.com.
Here is a link to the video of the birthday cards being presented to Vincent last year. You don't want to miss out on this rare opportunity not only to contribute to a worthy cause, but also to have Vincent personally open something that came from you!
All birthday cards should be sent early enough for them to arrive NO LATER THAN April 12th to the following address:
PO Box 50144
Summerville, SC 29485-0144
We have just been made aware of a need within Vincent's family that we can all come together to help serve. David Jorgensen, Toni's brother-in-law and Ron's brother, has been diagnosed with small cell lung cancer that has metastasized to the brain. In January he underwent brain surgery as well as suffering from a stroke. Soon after this, a blood clot developed which requires a life-long treatment costing $500 per month, which is in addition to hospital bills. David has a large family but he is not able to work and his wife has had to leave her job to care for him. Needless to say, the situation is dire.
Vincent, Toni and Ron have always put the needs of others ahead of their own, and we have seen first hand the good that has been done through their charitable work. Now it is their family that needs the help.
Going forward, and until further notice, any fund raising efforts publicized through this page will go to benefit David Jorgensen and his family. Specifically, we anticipate Vincent-related items being put up for auction on ebay in the near future. Whenever we become aware of an auction the proceeds of which will benefit the Jorgensens, we will make that fact known to his fans. We will also keep everyone updated on all future fund raising events as details emerge.
Thanks to all for your support of past fund raising efforts such as the calendar. Vincent, Toni and Ron recognize we are a generous group because of the success of these projects. Lets show them just how generous we can be!
