Congratulations to Allison. It's wonderful to hear of a parent being involved to make our schoolsRead More and community better.

Congratulations Allison! I have had the pleasure of working with Allison through several of herRead More school beautification projects. Abundant Life Church has partnered with her and enjoy her leadership and community involvement.

I have to ask this since there has been inconsistencies with the story. First, I read that theRead More EMPLOYERS were taking it out of the gentleman's pay to make up for the loss and he had a wife and children that he was concerned about. Now I read above that it is a store owner who can probably make a claim on his insurance. I hope & pray this is not fraud.

According to official information from the police they only said he was an employee. The FacebookRead More event says he is the owner. I'm not sure how things work with franchises, big corporations, insurance claims, etc. I plan to stop by and speak with the man tomorrow during the event. Hopefully I'll learn more then.

This guy is a business owner and did a dumb thing and lost some money, and expects the public toRead More pick up the tab through donations? Why was store money kept at his home? How much money was lost? If the fundraiser collects more money than he lost does he intend on returning the difference? How? Has even one person come forward to corroborate the story of people stopping on the side of the road and picking up money and driving off? What kind of bag was the money in? This story is almost impossible to believe...

"most donors" - really? Show me some evidence of that. Honestly Nancy, I feel sorry forRead More you. I can understand the need to preserve your self-identity as a hero, but your unprovoked and constant attacks, not to mention your misguided and erroneous attacks on research studies and the living donor experience are just pitiful. If you don't put your faith in statistics (as you proclaimed above) then why bother? Wouldn't your time and resources be better spent actually trying to make the world a better place? I, otoh, do have a life. So this is the last comment you will read from me. Take the opportunity to say all the nasty things you want to say (behavior I find interesting from someone who claims to be so pious; I don't recall name-calling and childish insults advocated in Sunday school). This entire thread will be a good character reference for anyone who does a little web investigation on you.

What a pleasure this as been, interesting that you left out the fact that you are a living donor toRead More who I can only guesswould be your sibling. Something must have went wrong back in 2008 to bring you to vilefy donors. Your webpage is filled with nothing but statistics. So the missing piece is just I don't get your motive. Is it that you might be jealous of a good donation? Is that why you had to comment on my story? Can you not stand for a good donation to happen? Is that why you onlly post negative stories, not to mention that one is instructed not t say "If I could, I would do it over, etc?" Or is it that you can't stand for anyone else to be in attention for donating? Especially Altruistic donors? I'll give you cred for the greyhounds but from what I know, your self employed and make up advocacy websites But instead of doing good with them, you manipulate others with them. So all you know of donation is what happened with your outdated surgery, so there for you just throw out statistics and scare people into not donating? But I just don't get why. Why would you do that? How do you live with yourself? Thats right, only people with souls have a concious.

When I say "most donors" I am referring to my huge circle of donors & recipients. IRead More go off their stories not web search. Although I do give you cred, hands down on your passion and searching.

This is a true "man-of-God" willing & wanting to serve people who need spiritualRead More guidance, and his wife, Jane, is a wonderful help-mate, secretary, and all-around supporter of his ministry. God Bless Jane & Terry with all their endeavors.

This woman certainly sets a good example for us all to follow. I can only imagine how many smilesRead More she has brought to people when dropping off food to their door. Happy Birthday Cecelia!
Jennifer Gross March 20, 2012 at 02:28 pm
Happy Birthday, Cecelia. My family has been very active in Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland forRead More over 30years. Cecelia is a blessing and a pleasure. She has brought great joy to the clients as well as the program volunteers, especially my nephew who is a teacher and rode with her while he was off in the summer and my father who drives with her now. God Bless You! I hope your example encourages others in our community to serve their home-bound neighbors in this very important way.
