Daily Afternoon Randomness (39 HQ Photos)

Yesterday, we posted a story about Taylor Morris, a Navy EOD who lost all his limbs in an explosion in Afghanistan. Taylor had always dreamed of having a log cabin on a lake so we asked the Chivers to pitch in the down payment on his dream home. I set the goal at $30,000.

The Chivers smashed the goal in less than an hour. We couldn’t have predicted in the opening minutes of the campaign that the Chivers were, in fact, just clearing their throats.

Many of the early comments read something like, ‘Screw the down payment. Let’s get him the whole cabin instead.’

The donations began to surge. I received an email from a family friend watching Taylor’s donation page. “John, the donations appear to be coming in faster since we hit our goal. How? This is insane!’

Not insane really, just how the Chivers have always rolled. Minutes ago, donations blasted past $200,000… $170,000 more than we asked for.

Taylor’s story is just beginning. The local and national media are now decsending upon the Morris family to help spread his inspirational story and I’ll keep you posted on the new developments. In the meantime, enjoy your weekend, you’ve earned it. Donate right here.

Happy Friday, Chivers

    If that's China, and he isn't the Emperor's kid, he was probably shot in the face at the bottom of the slide.

    So it's not THAT great.

    As a fellow EOD tech what the chive and its followers have done for Morris means a lot to not only me but the whole EOD community. We are a very small and close knit group so when one of us is hurt all of us feel it. The flip side to that is when you help one of us you help us out. Faith in humanity restored. KCCO
