  3. A young family I know went through such unexpected devastation this year. A recently married young father of 3 had a horrible accident and was hospitalized on August 31, 2021. He and his wife just bought a house in Jefferson City, Mo.
    John Miller had a work place accident and almost lost his whole hand. He’s been in so much pain and was hospitalized, had several surgeries and his main worry was his wife, three children, ages 10, 7 and a 6 month old. This would be such an amazing relief for this family and give John some much needed encouragement. What better way to spread some much deserved love and cheer?!?

  4. I know a young man who was injured on the job in august. He injured his hand and hasn’t been able to go back to work yet and is not sure when he can return. His family just got a house around the time of the accident and could really use some help making a payment. They have three small kids ages 10, 7, and 6 Months. Jonny Miller is a great man and deserve to have a little stress relief this Christmas. I have known this young mad his entire life and would love if clear99 could help brighten his holidays this year.

  5. John Miller had an accident on Aug 31, 2021 in which he lost half his dominant hand and hasn’t worked since and closed on a house while he was hospitalized. He has three kids. At this point he has no idea when he will return to work. A house payment would relieve lots of stress for this family.

  9. I think we can all agree that 2020 and 2021 has been pretty rough year for most of us this year has been harder than the previous for me in particular. Hi Fiancé dad on July 31 called us saying he had Covid we were preparing to go down to Disney World and take his little sister there for the very first time. When we were on our way down he called us again saying he wasn’t feeling well at all. We told him we hope that he feels better and will see him when we get back. But not a day into our Disney World vacation my fiancé‘s mom called us saying that she is taking dad to the hospital immediately myself my fiancé and I fiancé sister did not want to be down there anymore so we decided to go back home and be with my fiancé‘s mom when we got home on August 11 we had been calling the hospital asking if he was OK when we found out that he decided to get put on the ventilator because he couldn’t handle breathing on his own anymore. Fast forward to August 17 we got a phone call from the hospital again asking us to come to the hospital to say our goodbyes because the nurse did not think that she was going to make it. So he gathered up I think the fastest possible and headed towards the hospital it was very hard but I truly believe that it he needed us to come talk to him and tell him that it was gonna be OK for him to make it through he made it through the first day and the end of the nurses shift. He then made it through another day and another day until he was able to be transported to landmark hospital. While he was getting better things at home we’re not like Yoncé‘s mom got a call from her job saying that she had lost it and she has been out of work since then trying to find a different job. My fiancé‘s dad is back home after a long 34 months of questioning whether he was going to be home for Christmas or not but luckily God decided she was not done ministering good work yet. Although I am very thankful to have my father-in-law still with us it has been really hard with him being out of work because he cannot work a full eight hours yet and my mother-in-law being out of work as well due to being fired I would like to nominate them for a holiday wish it would mean so much to me and my family yes sis what happened so that they can pay some bills for bye gift for themselves this holiday season. God bless you guys!

  10. This is absolutely an amazing thing! My husband suffered a MAJOR stroke 11-11-19 and was in the hospital until January 2020. He was an avid hunter fisherman very very outdoorsy. He was a mechanic and farmer for a living. Since his stroke he isn’t able to do any of this due to not having the ability to maneuver outside. I can’t push him in his wheelchair. He would benefit so much with a wheelchair with tracks. Trying to keep his spirits up is tough because he loves to be outside.
