The Taylor Morris story: UPDATED

taylor lead The Taylor Morris story: UPDATED

The story of Taylor Morris, the EOD sailor who had all four limbs amputated after an explosion in Afghanistan, has gone viral. I asked the Chivers to donate $30,000 for a down payment on Taylor’s dream cabin. But the Chivers had other ideas.

As of this morning, you’ve donated over $250,000 to Taylor, you built the entire cabin… and then some.

In 24 hours, you changed a man’s life for the better, forever. You’ve done good, be proud of yourselves today. Some related articles:

    every one is saying good job chivers, well, good job john! if it werent for john, this wouldnt have gone viral. asking so much and requesting none in return, a sailor who was horribly disfigured didnt have a chance of relief and hope in sight, untill john got ahold of his story and selflessly requested our help for a guy he didnt know, but knew he could change his life with the gift he was given, the assembly of the public masses. well done john, i hope that sometime in my life i can do one better! speedy recover taylor, and if you need anything, we chivers are here to help, thanks to john!

    Faith in humanity has been restored. To be a part of this online (and real-life) community is perhaps one of the rewarding parts of my day. Chive On to all, this is a remarkable moment, one which actually brings tears to me eyes – no joke.

    I am going to put this comment on all of the Taylor Morris blurbs, and i challenge everyone who was touched by this story to repost it.

    It took me a moment to realize it, but HUGE Kudos needs to go to Taylor's girlfriend Danielle. She showed mental strength many Wives would not have in support of her man. She deserves a lot of credit. She supported him every step of the way. Helping him rehab? LITERALLY carrying him on her back? Smiling all the way?

    Talk about a love story! I suggest that everyone chip in another couple of bucks and give this girl a wedding a princess would dream of…
