Helping Louie The Lizard

By bencar

Strong Keepsakes has asked us to help a fellow enthusiast in need, and I am going to try this method of making this happen.

donate that $1 or $2 to
"Louie The Lizard"
Mark Francis
1340 Rose St.
Lincoln, NE 68502

If you follow this Link , it will take you to one of my Websites, where you can read Louie the Lizard's story, and donate whatever you wish. I will be collecting funds, then forwarding the money to Mark Francis. I hope this works, g-d knows anyone one of us could be where this guy is, or worse, and instead of taking the attitude of no one helps me, I'm trying to do what is possible to help a fellow enthusiast.

Okay, it seems that too many are voicing the opinion of-"No one helped me when I needed it"-"I'm going through hard times too"-etc. Bottom line, help if you can, please don't discourage others if you can't, and please, if you can't help Louie, then don't make disparaging comments either on this Blog, or to Louie. Let's show the world that "Car People" really are the best, not the worst.

Ok I sent a donation and it is still unclaimed. I received a notice from Paypal this am :Two days ago you sent a payment to This payment is still unclaimed. Often, unclaimed payments are a result of a payment being sent to a misspelled or otherwise incorrect email address. Please double-check to make sure you sent your payment to the intended recipient's correct email address.

Please check on this and get back to me.

Like I said, anyone of us could be in the same hole this fellow is in.

I'm barely managing to hang on to what I have anymore. Everything has just gotten so much more expensive, and my Income hasn't increased to match the price increases of everything I need.

If anyone lives close enough to Louie, I'd suggest a personal visit would be in order, and then he can tell you directly what you can do to help him.
