UPDATE: For those of you who would like to donate directly to the family, here is a link to information on how to do this.
This past weekend, a deadly fire ripped through an apartment complex in Milwaukie, Oregon and killed two children. Their mother and her infant son were barely able to make it out alive. First she dropped the baby from her second story window, to the waiting arms of Jeff Bryant, and then she leaped to the concrete herself.
Although Jeff happened to be in the right place, at the right time, did what was required to help this young child survive. You can read more about this story here.
Because Jeff missed a day of work, and took it all in stride, I’d like to offer him some cash to reward, and thank him, for being such an awesome man with Daddytude! If you would like to participate, click the button below.
I would like to reward this young man for his sacrifices
I know several families are displaced from their homes, and the family who lost the children are severely affected, but in my experience, churches, the Red Cross, and other organizations will step in. But I would like to reward this young man for his sacrifices too.
I have obtained his phone number, and I will probably stop off this weekend with some of our own money, if you’d like to contribute, feel free to jump in. I don’t think this needs to be a huge sum of money, but I would like to say think you to Jeff.
(BTW, this is not tax-deductible, I’m not a licensed charity, I just want to keep it simple. I promise he’ll get all the money though.)
