Day Five – We have a home, we need a van!

We need 100,000 people to donate $1.00 in 36 hours

The community has given so much to the Williams family this week. But the Williams still need more.

The house is built. The Design team is doing their thing to make it into a home. Every detail is designed to accommodate for Jacob’s easy movement throughout the house in his wheelchair. Jeremy says that he has come to terms with the fact that he will be in a wheel chair one day soon, so the house is also built to accommodate that reality. Every doorway, all the hallways, even the decks and access points are designed for the future likelihood of housing two wheelchairs.

Meet Colleen Rogers, Palm Harbor's VP of Advertising, joining the volunteer team todayOne large and daunting challenge remains: the family does not have a wheelchair accessible van! We want to transform the entire life of the Williams family, so we’re asking you to help. Please tell everyone you know that we need 100,000 people to give the Williams $1.00 – in the next 36 hours!


  1. Step one: Go to and click the Donate button.
  2. Step Two: Tell all your friends to donate $1.00. Start a chain email. Ask everyone you know to give just one dollar.

It’s that easy.


Now. The family will be back on Saturday when we give them their keys. We need to reach 100,000 by Saturday morning.

What else?

We will also apply the money to paying off their current mortgage on their land. We want to give them a debt free new home. ALL of the donations Nationwide and Palm Harbor Homes receive will go to the family.


Who do you know that would give a dollar AND tell a friend? Send them the web address and ask them to give a dollar and tell their friends. Put it on Facebook. Tweet the world. Tell your church. Challenge your club members or sorority or fraternity. I’d love to hear from you – tell me how many friends you enlisted to help the Williams family.
