Nashville's BIG Heroes: Readers Help Buy Handicap Van for Single Mom

There's a reason Tennessee is known as the Volunteer State. 

You may recall the story of a single mother whose co-workers were rallying to raise enough money to provide her with a handicapped accessible van. Michelle Sampson's 21 year old son, the eldest of four (happy kids - look at those sweet faces), was born with many disabilities. As a result Dalton, in addition to relying on a feeding tube, has been in a wheel chair for most of his life. A handicap accessible van is extremely expensive, so Michelle will lift her 125 lb son, in and out of the vehicle, when transporting.

Update! Donations, from readers who wanted to help, began flooding in. The GoFundMe page raised more than $20,000! According to the Tennessean, Sampson was able to purchase a handicap accessible vehicle, which the dealer discounted even further, to help make it even MORE affordable. 

There's a lot of good in this world. When in doubt, think back on this story - or better yet- make a difference for someone else. Be the good.
