Who IS This Angel?
« on: July 01, 2012, 03:29:23 PM »
This clip aired on CBS Sunday Morning (this morning). I don't ever remember a time being as inspired as I am now after listening to this person. She is a grandmother from Stafford Virginia. If anyone knows how to get in touch with her please let me know.

Marty, at the bottom of the printed story is a contact email for CBS News (OnTheRoad@cbsnews.com). Contact them and see how we all can support this wonderful woman. Apparently, heroes aren't just soldiers.

Also, if anyone wishes to help in general, here's the link:

Great story, she is a shinning example that one person can make a difference.

The page you posted listed her name as "Karen Grimord".

I believe this is her:

David - Thanks. I believe that is her. Here is a quote from the web page you posted the link to. Notice that it states a "drive" or "fundraiser".

To inquire about organizing a drive or fundraiser, contact Karen Grimord at LHCP.President@yahoo.com.

A question for Kurt or Ed; I would like to send a draft letter to one of you for approval. My question is; Do I inquire about individual donations as opposed to a drive? If it is a drive then how do we go about this? One of the "red guys"  ;) will have to act as treasurer, right?
