We are friends of Steven "Gadget" Burns and we want to find a way ALL of his friends can help him get back up on his feet. Gadge, a fun loving guy with a big heart has fallen on tough times and we should try to do what we can to lift him up! He has been willing to help many of us and to be a good friend.

Gadge has battled constant mental illness, which makes steady work a challenge and gets him off focus really fast. He has recognized something needs to change, so in his own words, "Monday I will be going to court to take care of some driving fines and a suspended license because I had no money to pay a ticket. I am also doing a new program at Summit Pointe that could help me, called STREET COURT. It is in front of Judge Holmes and involves going to a "co-op program" to help with financial issues and how to deal better.

I also have to do some voluntary community service and/or work each week. I will also have some serious Driver Responsibility fines coming, as well as a reinstatement fee. I have an outstanding ticket still, and really am trying to eliminate this before THAT one gets to harm me."

He continued: "I know its not relevant, but if I had all my Facebook friends throw in just $5, I would have MOST if not ALL of these bad issues handled, so I can focus on what I need to do to move forward and quit having to keep treading water because things seem to just linger around me!! When they overwhelm me, I struggle and get off track."

So what's $5? A beer or two. Part of a lunch. 50 can returns in MI. Its not a lot singularly, but as a group $5 can be multiplied by dozens and really do some great work. Won't you consider a small donation to help Gadget today? A paypal account has been set up, the money will come to that account and be used to pay tickets, fines and address immediate needs. If you don't want to give, please don't and don't be negative. We are here to help each other.
