Hi Hubbers: I received an email from the foster care agency I worked for (11 years) that a 9 year old boy who has been given 2 weeks to live wishes for Christman Cards to top the Guiness Book of Records. The Record is 35,000. Dalton has 23,000. If we could all come together to make his wish come true that would be wonderful. HIs address is Dalton Dingus, HC62 Box 1249,
Salyersville, KY 41465. Thank you and Happy Holidays to you all!
Kim, I think I have one extra card I can send him. I'll be sure he gets it. --Marie Flint
I heard about this, but didn't have address. The kids and I are getting one ready now. My son is taking address to school and ask his teacher if his class can send some. Thank you so much for posting this!
This is such a heart touching and emotional moment for this young child and his family. I would have almost bet the farm that this post would have been swamped by comments of support. I just can't stop thinking about it. Have you thought about posting this in another category, maybe one with the most traffic or readers. Or maybe even posting this in several different forums. Idk but I sure hope this young man gets what he wants.
I hope it helps, but I have posted this thread in Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and others.
Thank you so much Luis. Another Hubber had mentioned me putting it other places, but am just getting on now...I do appreciate your help! I'm sure Dalton will to ...
Well this little man has done it, he broke the record and got his wish!

More and more people are sending greetings online via email or using electronic cards or social media pages or even mobile phones. Have you stopped sending cards the old fashioned way?
