The Reason for the Season

The Reason for the Season

life quote

Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more. ~ H. Jackson Brown

Tonight my friends I am sharing with you a very difficult and special post.  This morning an old friend reached out to me to ask me to help with something she was doing.  You see her five year-old nephew has terminal liver cancer.  There’s nothing left for them to do but to keep him happy and comfortable.  He loves getting mail and so she was asking my help to see if they could get him a postcard from all 50 states.  I of course said yes, as my heart broke.  The idea of losing one of my nieces or nephews at five years-old is unimaginable to me.

So my friends, tonight I’m writing to ask you to help out as well.  This is exactly the type of thing I would love the Ministry of Happiness to be able to assist with.  So I’ve decided, to protect the family’s privacy to act as an aggregator for the postcards.  I would love it if this blog, if my readers, you my friends could help provide this little man with some joy in his life.  Help us, not only get him a card from every state, but also from as many countries as possible.  Show this young man that in this world and in this time where people seem so self-centered and uncaring, that people still have enough space in their hearts and in their lives to bring a young, ill child some joy and happiness.

So I’m asking two things:

  1.  The address is below, if you can, could you take some time to send a card.  A simple message, Happy New Year Miles from wherever your sending it from would be magnificent.
  2. Spread this post far and wide, it would be so amazing to send this little a thousand little lights of love in the form or notes and cards.

Address postcards, notes and cards to:

For Miles
c/o Rev Kane
PO Box 1253
San Bruno, CA 94066

This all has touched me so much, and broken my heart, please help out my friends and help Miles have some happy days. You’ll have my eternal gratitude. ~ Rev Kane
