I found this just a second ago and I think it would be such a beautiful, compassionate thing to do. All you have to do to prove compassion isn't dead and to make the wishes of an ill, elderly man come true is send a postcard. That can't be too difficult, can it?
'Wish of a Lifetime needs your help to fulfill the Wish of a caring and compassionate 70 year old who is in the end stages of COPD, and all you need to do is send a postcard. Tom Burgett of Alabama has been fascinated by the vast diversity of cultures throughout our World. Unfortunately, Tom’s ability to travel has become unfeasible given his current medical ailments. Spending most days at home, besides the occasional doctor’s visit – Tom is worried that the outside world will pass him by.
We’re determined to prevent that from happening and with your help we can expose Tom not only to the many fascinating cultures of the world but also its love and respect. All Tom wants are postcards. By visually visiting the locations on your postcards, Tom knows they will bring joy to his heart through his imagination. We have fallen head over heels for Tom’s story and have vowed to make his Wish a reality. Help us show this amazing senior that we still care and that old passions never die, even when you are no longer able to fulfill these passions on your own.
We will deliver all your postcards directly to Tom, so send a postcard highlighting the culture, landscape or people of our world, better yet send two or three and ask your friends to send them too!'
