One of his Mexican friends was in the "wrong place at the wrong time" and ended up being shot in the back. He is now paralyzed and his Mother is looking after him. This is very difficult, at the moment, because they do not have a wheelchair or a handicapped accessible bathroom in their house. It's hard for a woman to carry her grown son ~ even a short distance.
So, Vance came back from Mexico with a burden to raise the necessary funds to build a washroom and to buy a wheelchair for these people. Vance has found a Mexican builder who is willing to help with the renovations. All that's needed now is the money for the project. Vance has posted a note on his Facebook account and already people are wanting to help. One family donated their bottles ~ and when they were cashed in, it came to $52.
Alisdair wanted to help, too, so we have sent this month's charitable donation from his paper route to this worthy cause.
Donations can be sent to:

(In answer to the comment at the bottom, the amount that is needed for this is $2,500.00 ~ well within reach... and yes, "every drop counts!")
