Note to Admins, delete if not allowed.

We have an old gentleman in town who is pretty much homeless, and his only lifeline is a scooter he uses to be mobile. I do not know him personally, only see him scootering around. I received this note from a friend. Some people are letting him live in their basement to stay out of the elements during this cold season, but he is devastated he has lost his only form of transportation.

We looked at GoFundMe but the fees are so high. I will take donations via PayPal and all but the fee will go to his fund. No cash will be given, rather anything over the cost of the scooter will be used for safety gear, clothing, etc.

To send via PayPal:
(REMOVED)

Personally, I'm having the worst Holiday season I can remember, and just wished it was over, but this has kind of given me a mission to help someone. No amount too small, they will appreciate anything.

You can also send a check to:

Original News:

Some bad news today:

Jerry "Paul" Peacemaker, the sweet homeless gentleman who rides around Stephenson on scooter was in an altercation with a car this evening in front of American Woodmark. He was treated and released from the ED, but his beloved scooter didn't fair so well.

He is really heartbroken not to have his lifeline available to him. If anyone knows of a reasonably priced scooter/moped please let me know. He needs to get back on his own again soon for his mental health. Please keep him in your prayers.

Unless someone goes REALLY crazy, I am going to try to match what ever the highest single donation is. So far it's $50.

Not to mention I may have a slightly used pair of nice gloves and other stuff to give him.

Is that getting close to the mark for a scooter? Not sure what something like that would cost, imagine you have to go with used as well?

$1300 bucks??? That's so cool. This thread brings a tear to my eye. Just when I think the world is full of pricks, I stumble across something like this and my faith in humanity is renewed.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere and I'm having a beer. Here's a toast to people pulling together for one another.
