Help my homeless friend Tony have the best Christmas ever!!!

Dear Clemson family and friends,

I have been blessed beyond belief in my life to be surrounded by such great family and friends! I have been fortunate enough to attend, graduate college and hold down a steady job since then, even in this though economy, to enjoy things I love doing like going to Clemson football games! However, there are those who are less fortunate and could use a helping hand.

I did not attend Clemson but I have been an avid Clemson fan since childhood when my Grandfather who did graduate from Clemson would take my family and me to games in his Winnebago. When I hear Eric Church's song Talladega and he talks about fixing the old Winnebago I'm instantly taken back to those memories made in Clemson before my Granddad was taken from us way too soon.

Recently my wife and I have taken on a project to help a homeless friend of ours to get back on his feet! Below is a link to my story about Tony, our situation and how we have come to know Tony and how he is in return helping us. Please help us make this the best Christmas ever for our friend Tony!!!

Thank you so much for reading, sharing, donating or simply just sending us love and Christmas spirit! We are located in the Summerville/Charleston area and as I've been telling people, beggars can't be choosers so we will take any and all donations and if it doesn't fit Tony, he can't use it, or he gets multiples of certain things then I will be reaching out to local homeless shelter(s) and what they can't use I will re-donate to the Goodwill down the street from us.

Thanks again and Go Tigers beat the Sooners!
