‘Role Model’ Worker In Need Of Bike Gets A Whole Lot More
A MINNESOTA MAN WITH A DISABILITY HAS A NEW BIKE THANKS TO THE SHOPPERS HE HELPS EVERY DAY AT WORK. PAUL PYYKKONEN CAN'T READ OR DRIVE. HE IS FORCED TO BIKE TO HIS JOB AT MENARDS HOME IMPROVEMENT CENTER. He said he needed a new bike and he was going to go start looking for a new one, so I figured it’s time to step in and do something about that. A GOFUNDME PAGE SET OUT TO RAISE $500. IN JUST A FEW DAYS, OVER $25,000 WAS DONATED FOR PAUL. Overwhelmed and excited that there were people out there that cared so much about me. THE FUNDRAISER COLLECTED ENOUGH TO BUY TWO BIKES AND HELP PAUL AND HIS WIFE, WHO IS ALSO DISABLED, RENOVATE THEIR HOME. I want to say thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.
