The GoFundMe page is up and running guys. Im trying to go tomorrow to meet Drake and Mrs. Danielle both and hand deliver his card, and a nice LSU hoodie. Cant wait to be able to hand him tickets to the Fiesta! 


Drake to the Fiesta!


The Disney one is blowing up. If we get more than needed for Disney trip maybe we can get together and put the excess towards the Fiesta Bowl.

Absolutely! And vice versa! I still haven’t even got my friends involved really, I don’t see us having a problem if we stay at it at this clip. So let’s just keep pushing and whatever excess there is, can go to the lesser GFM...either way thank everyone for ur donations bc this Christmas is gonna rock for this little guy!

Does anyone know if he’s already been to Disney through Give Kids the World? If not, I can get him set up to stay there which is much better for families and also get the Disney tickets taken care of. Not sure how GoFundMe works, but it will not take near 8k to get them there if we can use GKTW, thus, enough money left over for Fiesta.

I know make a wish is heavily involved with “give kids the world”. Such a great organization. Get him some ice cream and Boston market chicken.

Lets make sure this kid get his cards!!! Its what he asked for. The gofund me’s are great but the rant needs to get him his cards. Hand written notes from us are special, and he can read and enjoy them.

Merry Christmas fellas.

Just shared Drake’s wish and links to tigerdroppings/go fund me’s with some local radio stations here in central Texas as well as the Bobby Bones show (they are doing a big push for St. Jude’s currently.) Hopefully some of them will air the story/Drake’s wish in their “tell me something good” type segments
