I have held onto my 1963 Chevrolet truck for 5 years now. A drivable, pile of rust that I have seen so much potential in. I’ve always had dreams to restore it.
Eventually, i would get around to it. I would someday create it into a truck that would become my “baby”. Over the years, I dreamt about the drives I would have in it. I dreamt about the color it would be. The engine that would go in, and how I could learn how to work on the different mechanical systems by taking things apart, and putting it back together.
But life has a funny way of changing our priorities, and influencing our dreams. The past 5 years has taken us on so many ups and downs, trauma and joy. Becoming a dad has been the best thing that has happened to me, but it has also taken me through the most challenging times in my life. Hearing your child has a diagnosis, and that their future was uncertain. Epilepsy, developmental delay, cancer were all discussed in our first child’s first year of life. The next 3 years would be a whirlwind of doctors, procedures, seizures, ambulance rides, and a host of other challenges. It would present a couple very real near death experiences.
I no longer dream of the truck I wanted to build. The experiences in my life have created another dream in me. A dream to make the future better for my children, and Tuff Sprout is a small part of that dream being realized.
so what now….
Now, I am going to sell the truck. Maybe one day I can revisit this thought. But not today, or tomorrow. Now, I am going to work towards the dreams I have now.
My goal is to use the money I collect from the sale of this truck to purchase LOVE Care Blankets in Tuff Sprout’s Spread The Love Campaign, for children facing extraordinary challenges.

Where Will The Money Go?
10$ of each of the blanket sale will go directly to creating a fund that supports children and families.
So with the truck sale alone, we will be able to purchase 15 LOVE Care Blankets that will be donated to kids that face extraordinary challenges in their lives. $10 from each blanket purchased will add up to $150..and that will go to creating our first parent support meeting. Every blanket purchased using #63Chevy in this campaign will add another $10 to this effort.
