Day 347: Tried To Help Dalton Break A World Record


I need everyone's help.  Seriously, every single person who lays eyes on this blog post, I ask that you help me with something.  It won't take much time and really won't take money, but you could make someone's last wish come true.  Dalton Dingus is a 9 year old boy who is going through a really rough time in his young life.  He is currently living with Stage 4 Cystic Fibrosis and has been sent home by his doctors to be closer to family.  Dalton has a wish this holiday season, and it is something that you and I (and anyone else you know) can help with.  Dalton is trying to get into the Guiness Book of World Records by receiving the most Christmas cards, and although I already did a random act based on Holiday cards, this is something that I couldn't pass up.  So today, for my random act of kindness, I tried to help Dalton break a world record by sending him a card from my family.  Please join me in helping Dalton perform this awesome feat by sending a card to the following address:

Dalton Dingus
HC 62 Box 1249
Salyersville, Ky 41465

  4. I absolutely LOVE this. I hope it's okay, but I copy/pasted your request into a Global Pay It Forward Christmas Event that I started last year. It's called "The 12 GIFTS of Christmas" and it's about doing one act of kindness every day for the 12 days leading up to Christmas... Tomorrow's random act of kindness just so happens to be "Making someone a Christmas card" so I suggested everyone send it to this little boy. Check it out if you'd like! We'd love to have you participate =)

  8. Sent one today. Not sure if it will arrive before Christmas, but I thought it might be cool for him to get one from the other side of the world, even if it is a little late.

  9. Thank you for bringing attention to this! I will certainly be sending a card! One of my best friend's son and nephew both have CF and can't imagine what Dalton's family is going through. These children are amazing and we can only hope that one day CF doesn't stand for Cystic Fibrosis, but CURE FOUND!
