Annual FTE Charity drive

Ford Truck Enthusiasts has had a tradition of holding an
fund-raiser each year in support of a worthy cause. This
year's cause is especially worthy and hits close to home.

During the SEMA show in Las Vegas I had the opportunity
to meet with long time FTE member Darrell (aka JumpinFord)
and one of our newest members, his friend "Scooter." We
had a great time having lunch on Saturday and hanging out
after lunch.

A few days after the SEMA show, Scooter passed away rather
suddenly during an epileptic seizure. Though I didn't know
Scooter long, I can say that he was an very nice guy. He
was also very funny and had a lot of talent (he was an actor
who's been on several shows/movies). A photo of Scooter can
be found on the FTE web site at:

http://ford-trucks.com/sema/sema1/html/image041.htm

Scooter (Lee Stephan) was a young man and was survived by
his wife and two children, ages 3 and 5. Sadly, they are
not financially in a good spot, especially during this time
of year. Lee was unable to afford his full dosage of
medication and this was a contributing factor in his death.
According to Darrell, Lee was too proud to accept charity.

I'm sure most of you will agree that this is a very worthy
cause. The Stephan family could use your help. Ms. Stephan
has gratefully accepted our offer to help after I told her
to not let her pride get in the way. FTE has set up a link
in order to take credit card donations. We will forward all
funds to the Stephan family on the 18th of December.

Ms. Stephan has given me permission to publish her address
should you decide to make a contribution by check or money
order (please use the address only for contributions or
condolence cards, their privacy needs to be respected).
Please note on any funds "FTE Drive".

Stephanie Stephan
650 Plumer Ave
Costa Mesa, CA 92627

The secure contribution form (via our online store) can be
found at:

http://ford-trucks.com/cgi-bin/Web_store/webshop.cgi?product=annual

I will publish the total sent on the 18th.

Your participation would be appreciated. Our strength lies
in our numbers and together we can make a huge difference
for a family that has found itself in a difficult situation.

That's what I thought, but I just wanted to make sure:-). Sounds like a great idea. Sounds like she could really use the help. You know, the world would be a much better place if there were more people like you, Ken. I'm not trying to butter you up or anything, I just think you set a good expample. Scooter's story makes a person really appreciate what they have in life and not take anything for granted. You know the saying, Live Every Day Like It's Your Last!

Ken, How did we do? If you already published the total and I missed it, I apologize to you for asking. Thanks,
