Helping Bismarck Families in Need
The holiday season is upon us once again! Townsquare Media, along with Dan's Supermarket, needs your help to make this Christmas unforgettable for a deserving family in the area. Christmas With Us is the chance to give back to those who are dedicated to helping the community, have experienced some sort of setback or hardship, or are just generally deserving of some help - all you have to do is nominate them!
As all North Dakotans know, the blizzard in March 2011 had far-reaching effects. For one family nominated in last year's Christmas With Us, the aftermath was devastating. As a mother was taking her oldest daughter and niece to the doctor the morning the storm hit, she hit a patch of ice and lost control of her vehicle, throwing both children from the car. Tragically, her daughter had fractured her neck in three places and lost all brain function, forcing her parents to make the heart-wrenching decision to let her go. In an incredibly honorable gesture, they donated their daughter's organs to give the gift of life to other deserving individuals. In addition to supporting two other children, the family found out they were expecting another child just three short months after losing their daughter. The financial responsibilities of supporting a family coupled with the mountain of medical debt due to their daughter's tragic accident made this family more than deserving of a helping hand.
There are plenty of other deserving families out there. Help us out by nominating them for Christmas With Us and give them a Christmas they will never forget!
