You all know how cynical and blase I am about things, but this really struck home! This lady works for Paul's company and has been a valued member of the team but tragically was told 3 months ago that her life span was limited due to terminal cancer. She is a single mum to a little boy, Sean and through the generosity of Newellco Rubbermaid, funds have been raised to send them both on an amazing holiday to America - Sean's first trip on a plane let alone abroad!!!! But it cannot end here. They have also committed to ongoing fund raising to enable Sean to experience all those things we may all possibly take for granted and to this end Paul is doing a sponsored walk next week along the Trent/Mersey Canal (challenging especially as I expect to get a call to say he has fallen in!).
I know there are so many worthy causes in this world but sometimes there are those that touch our hearts which are very close to home and I hope you can find it in you all to donate as much or as little as you can afford.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
PS bets are being taken as to how long it will be before he falls in and all will be donated to the fund :)
