Dear Tom,

My Christmas wish is for my hard-working husband, who just can’t seem to get a break. Rickey and I have been married for 18-years and the job force has never been good to him.   Shortly after we said our vows, the grocery store chain that he worked for closed down.   He then started his own mobile car detailing business, “Mobetter Clean” which ended when he was in a terrible accident and the truck flipped three times.  Thankfully, he survived, but his bad luck continued with years of different job layoffs and plant closures.

The story of our life seems to be– just when we think we are about to get ahead, his job always end…which now brings me to my Christmas wish.   My husband wants to go back into the mobile auto-care, detailing business.   He has managed to get an old trailer that needs work, but it’s all we can afford.   Rickey could use your assistance to get a pressure washer, 60 gallon water tank, an industrial vacuum and the auto detailing interior and exterior supplies he needs to build a thriving business.

Tom, my husband not only wants this to provide a better life for his family, but he wants to be able to work side-by-side with our three, growing boys and show them what hard work and never giving up can achieve.
