Can you help Mark?

I just was driving home from Sam’s and I passed a guy walking on Hillman Highway.(about 3 miles from my house) He had his thumb out and since I didn’t have any kids or wife with me and he was a MALE (I would never pick up a female if I was alone) I decided to pick him up.

I asked him where he was headed and he said out on Old Saltworks Road. I asked him how far and he said about 3 miles, well I live about two miles out. So as we were driving I asked if he worked at shoney’s (since he was wearing a hat and shirt – I know, I know… “Here’s ur sign”) and he told me yes. I asked him if he always walked to work and he said yes.

Basically the summary goes like this… He’s worked there for over a month, he has to be at work at 9 and gets off at 2. It takes him 2 hours to walk to Shoney’s. He has been doing this for over a month.

So here’s the thing – sometimes my church gives away vehicles, and they always give out any help they can to others. I’m thinking that if we could raise $1,000 I could get this guy a scooter, that way he wouldn’t have to pay for insurance and gas would be really cheap. I will check with the church to see if they can assist at all.

So who’s in? Anyone? Seriously if 10 of you gave $100 that would be it. If 20 of you gave $50 that would be it. I’m using a website called ChipIn to help manage this. See widget below to donate and if you have any questions please contact me via the comments section below!

Here’s a chance for the Church to be the hands and feet of God.
