Card Flurry™


“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world: indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
—Margaret Mead


New Card Flurry™:


Let’s make sure that Jackson’s Mailbox is full… let’s let him know that he is loved by many! You can send cards and gifts to Jackson at:

Jackson Bezzant
PO Box 1563
Idaho Falls, ID 83403

Jackson Bezzant, 7, was eating his breakfast at school when three older boys approached him and began taunting and teasing him. They called him names like “monster” and “ugly” as Jackson sat there, helpless. Thankfully, a teacher’s aide took notice of the situation and stopped the cruel bullying before it escalated any further. But the story was enough to bring his worried dad, Dan, to tears.

You see, Jackson was born with Treacher Collins syndrome, a rare condition that affects the development of bones and facial tissues. Jackson is nearly deaf and has already undergone one surgery to rebuild his eye socket. Because of his appearance, Dan has witnessed his kindhearted son become the victim of bullying — at the hands of people of all ages.

“One time, a woman walked past us, and we could hear her say, ‘Did you see that little boy’s face?’” he recounts. After hearing what happened to Jackson at school, Dan decided to take a stand. But he never expected his Facebook post would create such a reaction like this.

Jackson is a first grader from Rigby, Idaho and he will have to undergo many procedures throughout his life.

Recently, Jackson’ father, Dan, received news that left him heartbroken to the point of tears. One morning at school, Jackson was eating in the cafeteria when several older boys started bullying him. They called him “monster” among other horrible names. Unfortunately, things like this happen a lot, and it’s often adults who can be the most cruel. “One time a woman walked past us, and we could hear her say, ‘Did you see that little boy’s face?’ If she’s saying things like that, what are her children saying?” Dan recalls.

Trinity is a 13 year old battling rhabdomyosarcoma. Her father, Bill Sunderland is a new distributor with us under Mark Herdering. She underwent a right side mastectomy on February 10, 2017, and is currently going through chemo and radiation therapy. Her dad, Bill Sunderland, just began a new job and does not qualify for paid family medical leave yet, and must take weeks at a time off of work to be with Trinity. We are asking for donations to help support Bill while he is on unpaid leave, and to help pay for the expensive treatments as they become a financial stress to Bill and his family. Things have been very tough for Bill over the last few months, not only is his daughter going through the fight of her life, but he also lost his mother right before Christmas.

Let’s shower Trinity with “Happy Cards” and lots of love. Also, the financial hardship is devastating for this family. If you have it in your budget to send a little American Express Card to help ease the pressure that would be so generous of you!

Here’s her mailing address. And thank you! The thousands of cards you have sent already are making a huge difference!

LAYTON BOYS CAUGHT ON VIDEO DOING THE RIGHT THING!

LAYTON, Utah – If you found money on the ground, would you keep it or turn it in? Fox 13 viewer Becky Squire shared this video of her boys, Eli and Bronx, doing the right thing. Squire said her boys found cash outside a neighbor’s house. Jennifer Arismendi captured their adorable discussion about what to do with their recent windfall.

Eli: “Do you want to do the right thing to do or keep it?”
Bronx: “Do the right thing to do.”
Eli: “Uh huh. It’s best to ask someone.”

The brothers knocked on the door to check with Arismendi who said the money did belong to her. She thanked them for returning it and the boys went on their merry way… off to their next adventure or treasure hunt.

This story is heart wrenching. Kelly Owchar, a 30 year old nurse from Airdrie, Alta., gave birth to Leah and Lauren on March 18th. It was a joyous day for the Owchar family. She and her husband Dwayne cried when they heard the twins cry for the first time upon their birth.

Two weeks later, Kelly felt a painless lump in her breast. She assumed it was a blocked milk duct. She felt extremely tired, but thought that was because she was still adjusting to having newborns, along with her active two-year-old son, Eric. “I was reassured with the same sentiment from those close to me,” she wrote. “But still something inside me was nagging that this was different,” she added. “I am ashamed to admit the amount of times I fell asleep sitting up while holding a newborn in the night.” Kelly goes on to state that she believed the fatigue might have been postpartum depression. When she had stomach pains and nausea, she assumed that it was probably caused by an iron supplement.

At her babies’ one-month checkup, her doctor examined the lump and then sent her for blood tests. After that, a breast exam was ordered. Her pains got worse, and the stage-four cancer diagnosis was made on May 15. She described that life-altering day. “Dwayne cried,” she wrote. “I just kept saying, ‘But my kids! I’m so young!’” Kelly died one week after the diagnosis.

Let’s send cards to the family right away and let them know that we care…

CARDS AND GIFTS CAN BE SENT TO HEATHER’S PARENTS:

Susan Bro and Mark Heyer

999 2nd Street S.E.
Charlottesville, VA 22902


Heather Heyer was killed when a man drove his car into a group of anti-racist protestors. The crash left Heyer lying on the pavement alongside another victim.

Heyer was from Stanardsville, Virginia. She worked as a paralegal in the bankruptcy division at the Miller Law Group in Charlottesville, where she lived with her Chihuahua, Violet, named after her favorite color.Heyer had joined other paralegals from her firm to go protest the white-supremacist rally on Saturday. That event, which drew hundreds of white extremists, as well as numerous counterprotestors, had been broken up by police shortly before the hit-and-run attack.

“Heather Heyer was murdered while protesting against hate,” a friend wrote on a GoFundMe fundraising page set up for the young woman’s family. Heyer’s mother, Susan Bro, said in the statement on the GoFundMe page that, “She died doing what was right. My heart is broken, but I am forever proud of her.”

She always had a very strong sense of right and wrong, she always, even as a child, was very caught up in what she believed to be fair. Somehow I almost feel that this is what she was born to be, is a focal point for change. I’m proud that what she was doing was peaceful, she wasn’t there fighting with people.

Bro also shared her heartbreak about Fields, the young man now charged with Heyer’s murder, per Campbell: “I think he’s still very young, and I’m sorry he believed that hate could fix problems. Hate only brings more hate,” Bro said. “Heather was not about hate, Heather was about stopping hatred. Heather was about bringing an end to injustice.

She began to cry as she added, “I don’t want her death to be a focus for more hatred, I want her death to be a rallying cry for justice and equality and fairness and compassion. I’m very sorry that [Fields] chose that path because he has now ruined his life as well as robbed a great many of us of someone we love very much.”

Alfred Wilson, a manager at the law firm where Heyer worked, remarked to the New York Times that, “To have someone like Heather believe in you, that’s one of the best things that could happen to you as a person.” He also said that she had such a big heart he would sometimes find her crying at her computer after she had “seen something on Facebook or read something in the news and realized someone [had] been mistreated.”
