Jeep Emergency Response Team and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

Hey Wrangler forum family.

Our team has come up with a new t-shirt design.
We are trying to raise $1,000 dollars to support the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

Get yours here Jeep Emergency Response Team | Teespring



Jeeps on Trails is working in conjuncture with Drive With a Purpose to help raise money for St. Jude's Trike-a-thon! We are looking to raise $1,000, and will donate $2 for every shirt sold towards the cause. If you like the design, please share on your Facebook page or in any other forums and help us reach our goal.

Great idea and EXCELLENT cause! Nothing is worse that a sick child and feeling like there's nothing you can do!
Last summer we did a toy drive for St. Jude's of Denver Colorado and the few kids that were able to come out and see the jeeps just lit up!
I definitely will be ordering mine!

This will be so cool when a team of Jeepers wear them while helping out motorists.

Thank you to everyone so far! -- My son is MJ and he will be riding in this Trike-A-Thon. He is very excited to do some good and help others. This is his first charitable event and we are very thankful for all the support from our extended Jeep family!

We are honored to be a part of this and again, cannot thank everyone enough for the support!

a message from our friend we are helping with this cause.


Matt and his son, MJ, are working with MJ's school to raise money for St. Judes Hospital. Since MJ is young, Matt is largely helping his son and the school with this cause; but it is not by default. Matt and his family have been through a lot in the past year. Here is Matt's story to help you understand his compassion:
=============
8/7/13
On August 7, 2013 our lives changed forever. It was an ordinary rainy Summer Wednesday and I was working from home. My wife had gone to work, though her students would not begin class for a week. My daughter, Dianna (dee-on-ah) had been invited to go bowling with her best friend early that morning. Though, little did she know, this was the last time she would see her best friend.
Dianna’s best friend arrived late morning to pickup Dianna from our home along with her mother. They chatted with my wife briefly and departed. The rain was only getting worse at this point. They were not traveling far, though they needed to return a book to our local library before they enjoyed the amazing loaner footwear at the bowling alley. This would be their last stop.
After exiting the library parking lot, they departed down a mildly windy road and the roads were terribly slick. One can only assume how many vehicles were hydroplaning that morning. As they drove down the road a sharp curve was presented, and the control of the vehicle was quickly lost. The vehicle hydroplaned around the sharp bend and it need up in the opposite lane.
BOOM.
An oncoming vehicle t-boned them with almost no warning. The mother died upon impact, while her daughter remained unconscious. Dianna was also unconscious in the back seat.
Within two minutes of the accident, first responders were on the scene. It was clear that the best friend needed urgent medical attention and the emergency responders acted quickly to get her to a specialized care unit in North Atlanta. Due to the low visibility and severe rain, the critical response unit from the Children’s Hospital could not fly to the scene, instead the team was rushed up by local highway to care for Dianna’s best friend and transport her to the hospital. Dianna would soon follow.
Approximately one hour later I received a text message from my wife with ‘911’ displayed. I had not seen this message since the days of the pager, it must’ve been urgent. The EMS unit had identified Dianna, and through the county’s resources located my wife as her mother. They were calling to share that she had been in an accident, but she was “okay”. — I realize now why they always say the same thing to parents, as I was driving erratically to arrive there assuming it was not severe.
Upon arriving at the emergency room of the Children’s Hospital we met Dianna with what appeared to be severe cuts and scrapes on her face, as well as several cuts and bruises on her limbs. She was beat up pretty bad, though all things considered, a very, very lucky little girl. She suffered facial fractures, a concussion, mild internal bleeding, and severe impact bruises. Once we determined that Dianna was going to be well, simply needed to recover and heal with hospital care, we met some of the Sheriff’s Office scene responders. Within seconds it was revealed that her friend’s mother did not survive, and her best friend was brain dead with little hope of survival.
Queue all of the assumed emotions.
Dianna’s best friend passed away less than 48 hours later.
—————
As you may imagine, this moment in time changed my life, and many lives forever. I lost a family member in 2001 who was a first responder on 9/11, so to hear that they were on scene within two minutes of the accident was a proud moment! We are extremely thankful and blessed to have such amazing people who act selflessly to help others. They do so without any expectation of payment or reward. This generosity and kindness are what truly inspired me.
My daughter survived this tragedy with a purpose. What this purpose is cannot be determined yet, though I am certain that it exists. My mission is to enable this purpose at any cost.
Sometimes inspiration comes from the darkest of times. These moments will change you forever. It is up to you to decide if you will let it knock you down, or rise up, inspired and motivated to learn and grow.
Live life to the fullest! Remember what others have done for you. Help someone else achieve something great, even if that great thing is simply a smile. When you awake, will your agenda for the day be something you regret, or something you proudly remember?
It is up to you, and only you. Live proudly. Act accordingly. Enable the dreams of others.

Hi everyone,

Thank you so much for the support so far!! -- We are almost at 30% to goal right now which is awesome! Though, there's only a week left. Please continue to share this info. We need your help to get the word out! Again, thank you for helping out with every effort. My family is extremely thankful for the wonderful support we've received over the past year, and are equally as thankful for the support my son is receiving for his first charitable event!!!

My niece has had so many surgeries thanks to the wonderful people over at St Jude in Sacramento that I can never repay the debt. One hoody and two shirts are coming my way!
