Helping A Victim In Need

help-austin-recoverBy now you heard about the race-related kidnapping and torture of the mentally challenged white man in Chicago. While the four animals/suspects have been arrested, the victim is still suffering.

Now there is a way you can help. (H/TToothy)

As you may already know from the news reports, Austin has some severe mental health issues. And now, because of his kidnapping, you can add PTSD to that list of problems. Since the incident Austin hasn’t been speaking or communicating verbally. Dave asks that we all help Austin with his recovery. He doesn’t need money, he needs greetings cards. I know it sounds trivial, but it’s really important.

If everyone sends Austin a note in the mail it will really help him recover from some of the issues he’s got on his plate. So go get an envelope and a thoughtful or silly greeting card and send it to Austin. Write a friendly note inside and tell Austin how much you care about him and how you’re praying for him. If he starts getting lots of friendly notes from people all over America, it will remind him that there are still good people in this world.

Please send letters, notes, cards and anything else to…
Austin
PO Box 641
Cary, IL 60013

This a fantastic idea I wholeheartedly support.

  1. Damn, I wish that I would have known about this sooner. I already did my shopping yesterday. Now I need to get off my lazy ass again and go out to get him a card. And as TOOTHY said, thanks for posting this, Wyatt. We need to help this young man in any small way we can……………………

  2. Metoo – It’s a terrific idea.

    Toothy – Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

    Tam – The media is already downplaying the event, so he could use some support from the rest of America.
