Dear Friends,

As we begin a new year at Campbell Custom Homes, Inc., we look forward to meeting new people and the opportunity to help them with their construction needs. We feel blessed to operate a business in which we are able to bring people's dreams into reality.

Several months ago we were made aware of a need that I KNOW together we can fulfull.

Mindy Kirkpatrick is a single mom who lives in Berryville with her son Taylor, who is 14 yrs. old. When Taylor was 1, he was diagnosed with Lagerhans Cell Histiocytosis. This disease is extremely rare and affects only 1 in 200,000 kids. This disease has robbed Taylor of the ability to walk, play with his friends or even speak clearly. Taylor is dependant on his mom for every function we all take for granted. Taylor will not grow up and leave home. He will always require help with all physical needs.

Knowing this, you might expect them to be bitter or angry. They are not. They never complain or ask for help. Mindy and Taylor have faith in God and are at peace with his condition. Mindy tells people that Taylor belongs to God, but as long as God allows Taylor to be here they will fight. Although Mindy obviously provides Taylor with everything in her power, their home is no longer sufficient to meet his needs. It is not handicap accessible and proves to be a source of frustration. There are numerous safety issues as well, such as lack of suitable exits from the home in the event of a fire, or other emergency. I could go on with details of why there is a need here, but I don't feel it's necessary.

It is our intention to build a new home for the Kirkpatrick's so they can leave behind the worries and difficulty of maneuvering through a home that does not meet their needs.

On January 14, 2010 we had a meeting with all sub-contractors who represent Campbell Custom Homes, Inc., and took that opportunity to inform them of this project. As we expected, several have already stepped forward and generously donated labor and/or materials.

This will undoubtedly help in our effort, but we need your generosity to make this happen. Please take a few days to consider participating in what we feel is a great opportunity to serve. As a group, we can improve Mindy and Taylor's quality of life immeasurably and at the same time, show our appreciation for all we have been blessed with in our lives. Please contact Jason or Cindy if you have any questions. We greatly appreciate your consideration and open hearts.

With Love and Gratitude,

Jason & Cindy Campbell

Each one should give, then, as he has decided, not with regret or out of a sense of duty; for God loves the one who gives gladly.
