Or a bowl of fruit. Either way, it's a win!

LOL!

Don't get discouraged. Look how much you have already overcome. The amount will keep growing even though it may grow slowly. No matter the pace, someday it will reach fruition and you will get a new van.


Thanks Lampy. I don't want to come across as egotistical, but it's frustrating emailing SCI organizations and different charities, but not hearing anything back.

Some great news...Getting radio exposure for my van fundraiser tomorrow morning! First at 6:50 a.m. by Fred on 102.1 The Edge, then around 9:30 a.m. on The Wolf.

Feeling extremely grateful for having such understanding, caring people willing to help.

Got a call from our main TV news station on Monday to do an interview about my fundraiser (I asked to expand it beyond just me, and get Stephanie involved). They're running the story tonight. Here it is - linky .

Don't know how many people will care to see this because there hasn't been a any activity in this thread in a long time, but I want to post this quote I received a few days ago, so it provides some insight into what I'm facing financially to get a van. The following quote is to modify the most basic Dodge Grand Caravan (no rear heating/cooling, only two front windows open etc.), with the most basic modifications.

Thank you for you time.

Peace and love,

Cam

Its a shame it hasn't gone better.
Have you looked at a taller van, maybe a promaster or similar type?
Not sure what a guy could do from here, things have been pretty tight since the price of oil plummeted in 2014.

I've always believed the government needs to spend money more efficiently and provide more for those in greater need.

With any luck there will be a tesla type ownership program where vans can be scheduled/shared/called upon/rented as needed/etc. to help with the cost of purchase, maintenence, etc.

If I ever win the lottery...

I'll share again on Facebook.

Please keep this thread alive.
