Hey guys....a friend of mine asked for my help in helping a very sick little boy whose family she knows well. His name is Dalton Dingus, he is 9 years old and is suffering from Cystic Fibrosis and is getting very bad. All he asked for this year was to see how many Christmas cards he can get for Christmas. No one is asking for money, no donations...Only a simple Christmas card to fulfill what may be his last Christmas wish. It doesn't matter what state or what country you are in. They want them from all over the world. If you would like to send him a card (remember NO money just a card)...send it to:

Dalton Dingus

HC62 Box 1249

Salyersville, Kentucky  41465


Thanks!

Big John

This is a really nice thing you're doing for this little boy, Big John, and I would very much like to be a part of trying to help make his Christmas wish come true. So my Christmas card to Dalton will be going out in tomorrow's mail. :)

Thank you Sara. I'm just trying to do a small part and help my friend as well. She says he is a good kid with a very dire future and just this simple thing will make him so happy. Not much to ask folks to do..Five minutes of their time, a simple card and less than 50 cents (here in the states) to mail it will make a sick little boys dream for Christmas come true. If folks can do it, though I don't personally know his family, I know it will be greatly appreciated and if folks can't, I understand.

Thank you for participating!

Thanks!!!! I know he'll appreciate it. As I said, I don't personally know him but a friend of mine knows the family and I saw a story by a local news crew the other day thanks to Facebook. Santa paid him a visit with some toys and a huge box of cards. The look on that sick little boys face was worth a million dollars!
