I'm Bigburgh. You don't know me. But I sent shoes to many countries. Maybe yours.
I volunteer time to paint custom shoes for permanently affected or dying kids. 18 or younger.
Race is no issue!
Kids are all saints.. innocent in my eyes..
I won't waste your time in death panels.... though they might exist..( evidence is stacking up )..
Pfffff do time at NIH .....
I'm dealing with the usual December death toll.
Winter takes havoc on any human.. sacred if anything!
I believe T&C will prohibit my saying of the non profit organization I volunteer for.
But here it is.
In the last 3 days. 5 kids passed away before the shoes were done. Or just got there by the skin of my teeth.
One really stuck out!
Thank god her shoes were done. So yes they just got there.
This god send of a girl. Had a secret. She took all the things that mattered to her. And made them secret. She took everything ( even from mom and dad
). She took everything that meant most to her.. and put them in a safe place for her.
Was checking up on her outcome from cancer.
Our sweet little one passed away last week..
She was just buried..
We went through her affects..
Hidden in her Trove of SAFE keeping..
We found at the back of the closet.. ( her safe haven ).
A Halloween gift bag.
Her favorite costumes Elsa & Anna from "Frozen".
One crucifix necklace.
A picture of mom and dad.
A picture of her baby brother...
And the shoes that I painted.. ( she requested the whole "Frozen" shebang! )
( I never seen the movie ) but it was on her shoes.. Anna, Elsa, olof, a deer and a snow man.. and her name in paint...
All these items are now in possession on a shelf at mom and dads home... their shelf to her.. till they die..( a piece of physical memory )
Yep short story.. to you ATS.
One kid in northern California... he wanted to be "BATMAN" for a day.. ( research .. I painted those too )
Odes to San Francisco! So SF did just that.
They dressed him up.. closed the streets..
And set up Gotham City.. Batman included.. you have no idea the psychology that does for a child.
Not able to have kids of my own..
There are many people here who have or are capable of such.
No race matters!
