CJ and Jenn’s Everything you Need to Know for Wednesday, May 27
This handsome young man needs $20,000 for a wheelchair that will allow him to stand up. The family's insurance will only cover $45,000 of the cost. The total cost of the wheelchair is $65,000. I'm on a mission today my friends. I don't want to leave the air today until this child has his wheelchair. Please help. When a child in our community needs a wheelchair...they should have a wheelchair. Now I know times are hard, but if we all put our coins together...I know we can do this by the time Jenn and I get off the air today. I beg you as I've never begged you before...please let's get this done. Click here to donate. Thank you.
