UPDATED: 2/16/18

 

 

No, not that thing our leader talks about that is demolishing our nation’s tourism industry. I’m talking about a wall to keep an elderly family warm this winter.

 

Today we were told a story about an elderly Hawaiian in Texas that had no running water so she was driving back and forth 5 miles to the local lake to fill up buckets. Right away we went to meet her and connect her with neighbors that would deliver her water until the plumbing was fixed. Next, we removed the foundation covering, dug out the flooded rubbish, dried up the crawl space and found the ruptured pipes.

After a few attempts, we replaced the needed parts with success, loaded up to leave and went to update the nice lady. Lani Burns then takes me around back and asks “can you do anything about this?”

 

So, over the next few weeks will are raising money to cover the costs for lumber, insulation, plastic sheeting, plywood, screws, dump fee’s and volunteer lunches and transportation.

 

If you can help, re-share this flyer and/or paypal to: tfrentz@hotmail.com

Blessings to all,
T

 

UPDATES:

On 2/1/18 we clear cut the tree’s around the work area and the local mission and churches submitted their first round of collections totaling $105!  Thank you to all those who are assisting this effort either by funding, volunteering or re-sharing on social media. Blessings.

 

 

2/13/18

We swept off the patio and delivered the first round of lumber.

 

2/16/18

Today we purchased materials and delivered them. We demolished the rotten soffit, installed edge metal trim, removed siding, removed the rotten materials, installed a brace to improve the wall stability and covered the wall with moisture barrier.

Here are three projects that are waiting for volunteers. If you are interested in helping out, please message us to schedule a time. Siding needs cleaned, debris needs removed and brush needs to be burned.

We have been focusing on fundraising so fiercely the past 3 years that we let the graphic comic novel books get behind schedule. During the holiday break and the cold weather we have been working hard to get caught up. The 2015 issue will be ready very soon. Here is a sneak peek at what is coming.

For those who prefer the Kindle format version, here is the link to purchase all our books via Amazon.    https://tinyurl.com/ybqmgdmp

(Hawkins, Texas) THE EAST TEXAS TOWN OF HAWKINS IS ESTABLISHING A LEADING COMMUNITY PRESENCE TO DEFEAT POVERTY.

The Helping Hands Network (HHN) founder has spent 2 years building a support network in the East Texas community of Hawkins Texas. Business partners have been established; volunteers have been organized and trained; and now a community Education center is ready to be developed.

First option to purchase the community center property has been offered to HHN and they need to raise $35,000 to finance and improve it.

 

(You can visit this link on FLIKR to scroll your cursor and look around the studio space!)
https://tinyurl.com/ycxr3tdj

The location of the property is perfect for the newest HHN addition because there are several groups working together to improve the impoverished neighborhood.

The Hawkins / Holy Lake Ranch area churches work together to support one central Helping Hand Mission to provide food, shelter and household emergency items to those in need. This mission is one block from the HHN education center.

The Hawkins area Chamber of Commerce is developing a business incubator location to provide job training to help improve the poverty and homeless problems. This location is 2 blocks from the HHN site.

The City of Hawkins has developed a community park with updated features on the same street as the HHN site.

There is a partnering motel on the same street that can provide emergency shelter to those homeless during disaster relief situations.

The HHN is working with these groups by providing business skill training, survival workshops, wellness classes and other wonderful events at the community education center property. The two story complex is perfect for the program.

 

(You can pause the youtube video & drag your cursor to look around the property.)

The upper level provides office space, storage and a wellness studio where visitors have events like yoga and movie/game nights. The lower level will be developed for emergency shelter, group meals, classroom training and art studio space. A community garden is in the second year of growth on the surrounding property.

IF enough money is not raised by March 2018, the property will be sold to the public and the community center and garden program will be forced to start over so please donate if you can. Direct deposits via paypal ID (tfrentz @ hotmail) are preferred to accelerate the processing time. 

Thank you for your consideration.

Hawkins Texas Large Item Inventory:

1031 Inventory list

 

BACKGROUND STORY OF JAN PEREGRINE:

Hi, my name is Jan. 22 years ago I suffered a partial spinal cord injury from an unlucky fall in my parents’ home, bruising my spinal cord at the third vertebrae.

Since then I’ve learned to walk with a rolling walker, but after so many years muscle stiffness became more and more worse, which required greater dependence on a power scooter and home health aides. Nothing has been made available to regenerate my damaged spinal cord.

Very recently I was researching online about progress being made in spinal cord injury and one thing led to another. I made what looks to be my greatest discovery yet and it’s not a drug or surgery!

Intermittent Hypoxic Therapy (IHT) teaches your body to use less oxygen like athletes training for higher altitudes have been using for years to enhance their sports performance. For people with spinal cord injury, whether their injury is recent or old or partial or seemingly complete, clinical trials are showing that IHT will be a gamechanger.

IHT adapted to people with spinal cord injury stimulates your muscles and neurons into growing and making better connections. It may heal spinal cord damage fairly quickly!

Since I can walk with a walker and have full sensation, as well as excellent health, I believe I’ll respond very well to IHT and my physiatrist and nurse have given me to green light. The company Hypoxico found at hypoxico.com has IHT equiipment the clinical trials use and will allow you to buy or rent it.

I’ve asked many pertinent questions about how the spinal cord injury researchers are using the IHT equipment and would like to rent it (the mask must be bought) for a month for the safest and best results.

I need help with the money, especially since Medicaid is charging me for two social security checks because I had a scooter accident last June (it fell on top of me) and needed hospitalization and rehab for three months after my health care agency dropped me because they changed their accreditation policy.

The frigid temperatures make my muscle stiffness or imbalanced muscle tone from my injury much worse and so I’d like to order the IHT equipment as soon as possible. it should be noted that IHT will help a lot with my energy level so I can walk and exercise more, even if my spinal cord isn’t directly regenerated.

Thanks for reading my story and I hope you’ll agree that IHT is a very promising gamechanger that I’ve been waiting decades for. I’m excited to use it! I’ve felt like I’ve been living in  a prison that keeps closing in on me in spite of trying to heal my cord with nutrition and walking. That’s helped, but I keep getting stiffer.
