A 10-year-old Adair Co. boy will get the birthday bicycle he wanted so . . .
. . . and the helmet he needs from another benefactor who offered to buy a bike for him (only to find out he was too late)
About: Mother is searching for used bike for son's birthday posted Sunday, 2015-09-06 04:02:20
By Ed Waggener
His mother had been hoping to find a USED bike she could afford. But that notice brought five offers to buy a NEW bicycle, and a sixth offer to pitch in with a partial payment to get a bike. His mother says he'll have a great birthday - but he has two more younger sibs who may be wanting him to outgrow it and pass it down to them.
We may have more, later, on the story, at the mother and her son's choosing. Another part of the story may never be told. The donors all asked to remain anonymous and we'll respect that.
We would like to tell you where the people were who made the offers to buy a NEW bike: 1) The first and the eventual buyer, called from Campbell County, Tennessee within an hour of the request going online. 2) The second came from Columbia, from the eventual donor who is donating the helmet. 3) A shopper at Walmart. and 4) A caller from Coburg and 5) Another caller Columbian. Those five all offered to anonymously get the child a new bicycle, and pay for it, entirely, by themselves. The six caller offered to help buy a bike. She, too, is a frequent participant in things done The Adair County Way.
One kind of has to choke back tears of pride, knowing how lucky we all are to be here. - ED WAGGENER
