    You Know

    I just noticed we have OVER 20k members on here now. That's 20k people that can tell 20k other people who can do the same. C'mon fellow Plowers...let's get the awareness out and STOP this dreadful disease from hurting anymore!

    OK here it goes.I tried to set up a service of sorts for sick/elderly/poor.My idea was this:I wanted any/all pharmacy companies(Phizer,Glasko-SmithKline ect) to fund my operation in exchange for some P.R .If someone was sick say cancer,and had no insurance/money/job means whatever If thier vehicle broke down I would fix them for free to the patients.I wanted to get N.(never) A.(a)P.(part)A.(available),AutoZone,Advance Auto Parts,Car Quest ect, to donate parts, the pharma companies to donate money toward labor and I would buy a garage equipped with tools.If someone came in with no resources and needed their vehicle fixed,I would get the parts donated the labor to them would be free and I would bill the phamacy companies for my labor/expences.I would also put up signs and other advertising for the companies involved so that when other people get sick,they would remember who and what companies were already helping others in the community.I spoke with someone at the American Cancer Society and they thought this was great yada, yada,I called G.S.K. they said basically that they did not think that it anything ANY company would want to get involved with.I asked why they said well they can already get assistace in other ways so forget it.People can get rides to treatments through the American Cancer Society ect ect,I asked how can they get rides to the grocery stores,pick up the kids and get through everyday life without a vehicle when they do not have money to repair them?I was told well I do not know but I guess It's not our problem.I really thought I would be able to get this to go,my wife thought I was either losing my mind or I was in for some life lessons,-dont take me wrong,she believes in me and the cause just knows how companies are.I had this idea probably 4 months ago and have just quit on it,not that it's not worth helping someone out with,I just dont think I have the brain and ability to pull it off.:cry: >I also Inquired about grants to buy a property to do this,there is a 3 bay garage right now right around the corner from my house for sale at $249,000:eek: and there is NO way I can swing that nut,I tried but it's it's not gonna happen.

    Please also remember this is just an idea and the earlier post was really only a condensed version of it.I was willing to tweak and bend as needed as I went but I dont ever see it going anywhere between the attitudes of people/companies and my lack of being able to even buy a plow for my own pickup let alone change the world with stupid ideas......Sorry if it sounds negative just pi$$es me off is all.

    Throw a post out with the "Please Read Me Brother Plower"
    Put out the information on prostate cancer and even common cancers of males.
    Encourage them to talk to every male they know about getting tested at the correct age.

    If you want to help people there are lot's of stuff you can do.
    Volunteer for Habitat for Humanity, Search "Volunteer" on the internet.
    We have Christmas in April around here:
    People volunteer to paint, clean, repair,build - etc for elderly and disabled people.
    Don't get mad get going,there are plenty of things you can do to help people.

    If I ever hit the Mega Millions I will buy a F-350 Dump with Tool cabinets and a Ladder rack and fix-build-paint homes for Habitat for Humanity till I get too old to go on.

    I am all in for the donating of time and $ and all that stuff. But If I hit the Mega Millions I am going on vacation. I will hire someone ( Maybe a homeless guy) to drive my truck for Habitat for humanity.
