As many of you know by now, Melanie Greer was shot by her husband on August 1st, 2015. So far, she has made a recovery that is nothing short of amazing, but she still has a long way to go. In speaking with Melanie, I learned that she is considering going back to work soon. I get it, she's eager to get on with her life, but at the same time, now should be a time of recovery and reflection. Yet there are still bills to pay and children to take care of. That's one reason I am holding this giveaway

The funds being raised for Melanie and her two boys are going to be applied toward cost of living and meeting medical needs. Personally, my hope is that we can raise enough money for Melanie to stay home a bit longer and look after herself and her boys. As you can see by the scan, the situation is a bit delicate and scar tissue plays a significant role in her recovery.

This is a woman who even now is still optimistic. She has a positive outlook and a can-do attitude that many people wouldn't even be approaching at this point. Let's help her maintain that attitude by raising enough funds to give her a bit of cushion to fall back on.

I'm offering two tickets to the fundraiser, to be held at the VFW in Knox, Indiana on September 19, 2015 from 4:00 to 11:30 P.M. with an AYCE spaghetti dinner made from locally grown foods. There is also going to be a DJ, dancing, 50/50 raffle, giveaways every half hour, an auction and more. If the only thing holding you back is a lack of funds to buy the tickets, get them here. If you have tickets, but you know someone who doesn't enter the contest for them.

Entering the contest is easy. All you have to do is share the flyer in the picture at the top of this blog or the link to the Facebook event page, which you can get by clicking on this link to the Melanie Greer Fundraiser Event. Come back to the comment section here and post a link to your wall so I can see that you shared it. I'll use a random generator to pick a winner of two tickets and announce the winner here and on Facebook. It's that simple.
