This post was taken from my dear friend Karie's blog, she gave me the totally awesome job of helping her spread the word about this amazing opportunity! :) Karie is a totally awesome girl, and the Vine's...they are an incredible family who is always helping others. Voting starts tomorrow. Don't worry, I will remind you!
My Family for the $20k in Home Depot Home Improvements
After much deliberation, and some really great entries, I finally came to a decision. And trust me, it wasn’t an easy task. If I could’ve had my way, I would’ve chosen everyone. I had some very deserving, amazing families. Alas, that was not an option. So, before blabbering my reasoning, I’ll get to it.
Caleb, Brannan, and Laney Vines!
Ok, so here is why I chose this family. First of all, Caleb is a wounded veteran who struggles with PTSD and TBI. Though that should be reason enough, that’s not why I chose them. The reason I chose them is because this family is not only struggling with the effects of war, but they are giving back to others who are struggling as well. A few years back Brannan and Caleb started “FamilyofaVet.com”- a non –profit that supports military families who are struggling with PTSD and TBI.
On top of everything, and most importantly, they could really use these home improvements. There are numerous things in their home that need to be fixed up to make it livable, and they deserve to have that. They really do.
Now, this is where we all need your help. Tomorrow, November 29th, The Home Depot Foundation will open up voting for the families on their Facebook page <---click there. It’s up to you and your votes to choose a family. So, look for the Vines family and choose them!!
I know there will be many who deserve it and it will be hard, but definitely consider Caleb and his family. To meet them is to fall in love with them. You should just take my word on that. They deserve this – I cannot stress that enough - if nothing else, for the simple fact that the better their living situation, the more families they will be able to help. So, you could say that by choosing them, you are choosing every Military family they help.
Well, congratulations to the Vines family! This is a preset blog (I'm somewhere in the Caribbean right now) but I have an amazing helper who will be helping me get the word out. If you have any questions go to my blogs Facebook page and she can help you from there!
Thank you guys for the support! Ya'll rock!
