Lately, all that comes in the mail are bills. Mail time, from most, is not the most fun part of the day. Today, it was a bit better. After checking the mail, finding bills, I chocked it up to another bad mail day...then there is a knock on the door...."FedEx". I was not expecting a package. I always let Melissa open the packages. When she did, she was pleasantly surprised to find some very kind gifts and a substantial donation from the Matthew Renk Foundation (http://matthewrenkfoundation.org/). I had contacted them, among many other organizations, for help with our coming rent and power bill payments. When I initially emailed them, I gave them our story, links to the blog and fundraiser, and asked for any help we were eligible for. Mrs. Renk, Matthew's mom, replied simply "We would love to help!". I replied offering any of my info she might need...but since, I had forgotten about it. They helped us without asking probing questions, complicated applications, and or any helps....just pure help. They are the first organization, among the hundreds I have reached out to, to extend real help...no questions asked. It was nice to see Melissa cry for a good reason this time. I will wear my "Think GREY" bracelet every day....and always thing about Matthew and his fight.
