first off everyone my name is josh i am a current nursing student at mtsu in tennessee and am asking a favor of my fellow brethren of the bama nation. i start nursing school in the fall and have seen some bad things in life and experienced them as well especially with children and cancer. I have a facebook if anyone would like to see what i will be discussing in this paragraph if you wish to friend me just pm me. i was raised in tennessee and bama life long fan even through the shula era but this is about something bigger i want something big for christmas not for me but for the children of the monroe carroll clinic in vanderbilt these kids cant help they get sick and get cancer and other very bad diseases. i have seen horrid things like parents dropping kids off with cancer never to return again. these things should never happen so this christmas i have decided to sacrifice so they can have one and feel loved by many and hated by none. i dont ask for favors or hand outs i have worked hard for what i have just like the rest of you guys but guys they need us dearly now i dont want you to spend money all i am asking is like my status to a celebrity of my choice so they can buy the kids one toy a piece i will be doing this myself when i get my bsn. in life we are defined by many things but the biggest is our actions. i know what is it like to have everything taken away and have to start over but these kids shouldnt have to. i doubt my wish will come true but its worth a shot any help is greatly appreciated thanks any suggestions who you would try to ask first celebrity wise thanks. ROLL TIDE
update- we got around 20 people involved now and two businesses but guys we need to give these kids something special this year i have enclosed trailers and trucks that we can use. link for the list is http://www.childrenshospital.vanderbilt.org/interior.php?mid=1166 anything even one thing is enough thanks here is the link to both post if it workshttp://www.facebook.com/josh.davis.104203#!/AKON/posts/10152153584275024?notif_t=like,

Thanks for sharing. We will not delete.
247Sports and BOL updates: http://twitter.com/sbterry247
the page it is on is akon the rap artist i will be asking more than one tho in case some fall through
I have no idea what like my status to a celebrity of my choice means, Im that Guy "anybody know how to like my status on FB". But I would like to help in another way. I would like to put a package together for one of the kids and ship it to you. In my hometown we have angel trees during Christmas, the trees at the local banks and other business' have the kids information on angels hanging on the trees. Info such as gender age sizes, If you want to participate you pic an angel put a package together and return it to the business. Maybe something like this could work on BOL. How many kids are you talking about?
I don't have exact numbers yet but it would be about 100 probably mostly they deal with cancer children ill call the hospital see what i can find out
All u need to do to like the status is go to akons page look up my post and hit like man
I was able to find your post and liked it.
I will also be personally doin a toy drive vanderbilt is sending a wishlist toys are due Dec 14 if any one else is interested I will be posting the wishlist link later after my classes I'm not doin this for any other reason other than the children so please if anyone would like to contribute please participate in the thread so I know who is doin what and from where this will be a lot to juggle with finals coming around but I'm up for the task
If bol would like to do something tht will also work man
Bump to the top.
http://www.childrenshospital.vanderbilt.org/interior.php?mid=1166 this is the link for the hospital and the list i promised if anyone else is interested thank you guys so much for taking the time to read this and also i have carrie underwood to donate one dollar per like on my status on her page again guys thank you the kids have no idea what i am doing they are going to be so happy.
Think what you're doing is very admirable man, quick word of advice to make this BOL friendly is maybe having a link in your original post, the traffic will go a lot quicker, maybe even updating the link every now and then if it's a different celebrity, or even a few links in the first post, I also think this is "pin" worthy, should stay at the top, +1

I was shocked to see that people drop their kids off never to return. But then again, not really. Horrible people in this world.
I only saw info on dropping off donations. Can you ship donations? What age group needs things more than others?
infant to adoloscents man and yes any donations at all man i can call tomorrow and get some more info on that bro if it is toys or anything i can give u an address to ship it to and i can take it or you can ship it there man. thanks- josh
I work for a large govt entity in north Alabama. I can put something together with the list provided. I'll have to check on the procedure for doing this. Hopefully I can get enough items to bring a truck full. But, do provide me an address either way.
to the hospital or my personal address we are trying to get a covered trailer together and my truck loaded down man maybe nick saban can hook us up with a team signed ball and a picture to put in vandy im askin james franklin to as well maybe will muschamp as well
