Chris Mitchell owner of 258 Marketing and father of 3, grandfather of one...dies April 11, in car crash. Please consider if you could help these kids. See attached flyer and www.258heaven.org for more info.

Some of you know that the man I was dating for the last year died suddenly April 11th in a head on car crash due to bad weather conditions. He leaves behind 3 teenage children ages 15, 17 and 19 as well as a 9month old grandbaby all of whom lived at home with Chris. Chris' oldest son, Chris Jr. is a soldier, serving our country in the National Guards. He is helping to protect our country - let's help protect his family.

Chris Sr. was the sole parent and provider for these children. They are strong kids just like their Dad, but there are huge financial responsibilites looming in front of them.

Chris was self employed, the owner of 258 Marketing. As many self employed people know finances have been extremely tight in this recent economy. This has left a huge financial impact on the kids. They have a home they can't afford, college tuition, cars that need repairs, gas etc. so they can get to their jobs. There is a baby that needs basic baby supplies - you all know how kids grow out of sizes every month. Gift cards, gas cards, grocery cards...it's all helpful.

Please check out this site to view the website talking more about Chris. www.258heaven.org

On this site you'll find secure ways to donate online. There is also a tab called BENEFITS that will explain the Benefit Dinner. I've also attached the flyer that you can print out, put in your offices or pin up on billboards. Please contact me with any contribution you might be able to make so I can give credit where credit is due.

Also, if you company has anything that can be used as an AUCTION item for the dinner, that would be great!!  If you would like to attend the dinner/auction on June 4th call me at 612-219-0262 for tickets.

Thanks and God bless you for your thoughts and prayers in our time of sorrow as we remember this man we loved so dearly.

Linda

Linda, 

I tried to post a comment here at least 10 times and the AR system kept acting up. 

What I wanted you to know is that you and the rest of the family are in my prayers.  I hope that you are all holding up as best you can under the cirsumstances.  So sorry for your loss.

All the best,

Amanda
