The way we met Kole sounds very much like the beginning of a paperback mystery.
“I went into the bank one day, pretty distraught,” starts Cat, Kole’s mom. “I was telling the account rep about this loan I couldn’t get – it just wasn’t going to happen.” This young man, twenty-something and obvious connoisseur of brilliant internet content, had an idea. He scribbled something on a slip of paper, slid it across the desk to Cat, and said quietly, “Check this out. They may be able to help.” She got home, typed the address into her browser, and frowned. “All I saw was beautiful women and jokes from dudes, I thought he had made a mistake.”
A month later, Cat looked up theCHIVE one more time, and discovered Chive Charities. The Green Ribbon Members who donate every month made it possible for us to give a $44,000 grant for the ADA-accessible van Cat and Kole need so badly. If you haven’t signed up to be a Green Ribbon Member yet, head over HERE – you can be the one to make every moment count for more kids like Kole, plus there’s a cool t-shirt involved.
Special shout-out to the mysterious Chiver who pointed Cat in our direction and helped change this family’s life in so many ways. Grab a box of tissues and read the whole story.
