Perhaps this community and Habitat for Humanity can come together and build a home for this man and his family. A company out of Michigan is building one for Aimee Copeland in Georgia who just recently lost her limbs due to flesh eating bacteria.

Wonderful thought! Unfortunatel, he & his wife made $40,000 last year, too much to qualify for Habitat, even though he was a welder by trade & is losing all fingers & toes. Bummer that the government has to look backwards sometimes, rather than into what the future will hold...

If anyone would like to donate to Paul's cause...donations can be made at any US Bank, payable to the Paul Gaylord Donation Account OR via PayPal send money to donatetopaul@aol.com OR via mail sent to PO Box 7732 Bend, OR 97708.

Besides monetary donations, we are looking for building materials, products & supplies! Pledges for these items made be submitted to donatetopaul@aol.com.

Thank you, Family of Paul Gaylord
