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

    I still say you should donate the extra money to the Veterans Hospital

    #12 I don't understand why this is surprising. Christ ministered where he was called, and he was called to minister to sinners. I always thought being a sinner was the only qualification for being welcome in a church. I guess anybody can form an organization and call it a church, but to my mind it isn't a church if it isn't full of people who are lost, lonely, afraid and damaged by this world.

    I hope that we not only pay for his cabin but help him afford some of those awesome spring legs I see amputees (sp?) wear to run with. Thank you Morris for doing what the majority of Americans can’t. As a son, grandson, and nephew of Army Veterans, I pay my deepest respects.

    Oh and #27 DAMN!!!
