Tara Needs a Van

My friend Tara needs a van with a chair lift. Here’s a word from her sister:

 

My sister Tara was born with Cerebral Palsy (CP) and is confined to her wheelchair. Living in Kansas, there aren’t always many resources to get her the equipment she needs. One thing she has always done without is a van with a lift. For years we have had to lift her into a vehicle in order to take her anywhere. This is no longer possible as it is hard on her body as well as ours. A van with a lift would completely change Tara’s quality of life. She has many medical appointments as well as things she would like to be able to do. (We cannot take her anywhere with us, including something as simple as eating at a restaurant). I have struggled with doing a fundraiser for this for a very long time and feel this is the only way Tara is going to get what she needs. If you feel compelled to help, we thank you. (I did not know what to set our goal as, it may seem out of reach, but if we are doing this we are going for as reliable a vehicle as possible)
Help spread the word!
Please help if you can.

Hide the matches

If you have a child that plays with matches you want to fix it. You’ll talk to the kid. You may read articles and books. You may discuss the issue with other parents, spend time in online groups, reach out in other ways. Some people in that situation will see the family doctor. A psychiatrist may be consulted. You will, almost certainly, look for root causes and try to find a long term solution. That only makes sense.

Before you do any of that, though, unless you are an absolute moron, you will hide the fucking matches.

Let me repeat that:
