Over the years there has been one major influence in my life. My best friends Mother, Ginger McCracken. When I was younger she was always there for me and helped me believe that someday I would make it to hollywood and pursue my love of filmmaking. She always told me that no matter what, I could do it. She has been such an inspiration to me my whole life. She has always been, to this day, a second mother to me. Years ago, while taking a horse back riding lesson she was bucked off the horse and broke her back. The doctors said that she would never walk again. I remember visiting her in the hospital. Even though she was lying in her bed unable to move she was still thankful for each breath she took. She even was trying her best to keep her hospital roommate in good spirits by telling her jokes and trying to make her smile. Thankfully with rehabilitation and a miracle she was able to regain feeling in her legs. Years later she is still walking (a little wobboly) but nevetherless she is still cooking with gas! Her story continues to amaze me everyday. She has had to overcome so many trials and still has always managed to keep a smile on her face. Now she is helping her children, who now have children, in their day to day activities. My love for her is great, and I wish you all could know her.
The reason for this letter is that she is in need of a new furnace, and with winter rapidly approaching I am reaching out to everyone I know in hopes that people might want to help. This winter in Pennsylvania is going to be much worse than last year and I hate the thought of anyone going without heat during this time. Since I have been in California most of my adult life, it was hard to come back to the harsh winters of the east.
Those of you who know me know that I never do this. All my hope is that if people knew the situation they may want to help. If not then I will keep trying to raise the money another way. Please don't feel obligated at all, that was not my intent. If you are interested in donating anything to help this wonderful woman it would be greatly appreciated. All donations will go directly to the replacement of the furnace. My hope is that we raise $8,000. I am putting my money into this as well, but I can't cover the whole thing. We will be posting photos and updates on the progression of the new furnace so everyone will get to see how a little bit of help can go a long way in someone's lives. If anyone in the world deserves help, then this is the woman who does. She is amazing. That is all I can say!

If you are interested in helping in anyway, whether it be a donation or any other way, please contact me. I have set up a donation site through paypal incase people want to donate that way.
