Will You Help Me Help Her?

I have a request for you.

From time to time, I do charitable things to help others. Normally, I do things like that very quietly. I don’t want accolades or acknowledgements. I just want to help when I can.

This time, the help that I want to do is too large for me to do alone.

I need your help.

Here is the text from a GoFundMe Account that I’ve set up. Please consider donating – even a dollar helps:

Hi. I'm T. M. Bilderback.

Many of you know me as the author and creator of the Justice Security series of novels and short stories. But, I also work in the real world at a community college.

Being at a community college gives me the opportunity of meeting many different students with many different special needs.

One of those students is 19-year-old Tristian Lyn Klein.

Tristian is a student at Nashville State Community College in Waverly, Tennessee. She has Type 2 Spinal Muscular Atrophy, or SMA. She wears leg braces that allow her to walk. She recently got new braces that allow for more knee movement - take a look:

However, Tristian's ankles don't have enough mobility to allow her to press down on the gas pedal of a car.

She looked into getting a conversion for her car that would allow her to drive completely with her hands, but the cost of the conversion, along with the cost of the lessons she would have to take to learn to drive with only her hands, are too expensive for her family.

To make this happen, I need YOU. I need your donations to reach our goal of $5,000 to convert a family automobile to hand-drive, and to pay for the lessons needed to learn this new way of driving.

Tristian needs her own transportation.

Please help. I don't usually ask for help like this publically - I prefer to do things like this quietly. But, our goal is to have this done by August, 2016, and I need your help to do it. I would be extremely thankful to you, and I know Tristian will be, too.

Thank you!

The money goes directly to Tristian. I have no withdrawal options.

Will you take a moment, and donate to this young woman?

Thank you, and…

Keep reading!
