Steelers Fans Helping Steelers FansBy SCM, SteelCity Mafia

My name is Chris Lavendier I am the President of the Steelheadz of Virginia.
We are a fan club of over 100 members on the mailing list just outside of Richmond, Virginia. I received a story about a man named Doug Sours last week that really moved me. You can read his story on this site http://steelerfanshelpingsteelerfans.com.
My girlfriend and I got to thinking, there are 100's of thousands of Steeler fans worldwide and there are a lot of people out there today that are really hurting. I have bought this domain name and my goal is to put Steeler fans that can help in touch with Steeler fans in need. Most of us have so much without even thinking about it while so many have so little. Even if all we are able to do is put a smile on someone’s face. I posted Doug Sours' story on our message board and got an overwhelming response. My fan club members and others have all been sending him things. I spoke with his wife today and one member even went to visit with him this weekend to help raise his spirits. This is my goal, I think we could really help a lot of people. I do need help however.
This idea is in its infant stage right now but there is no telling where it could lead, kind of a Make-A-Wish thing for Steeler fans. I really need help to promote the site and the idea. Also if you have any suggestions or ideas to make this more successful please let me know I would love to get you guys involved. Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated.
Please let me know if you would like to be added to Steeler Fans Helping Steeler Fans mailing list, to be kept up to date with new stories and happenings. Thank you for your time and God bless!
IF YOU DONT BLEED BLACK N GOLD, YOU MIGHT AS WELL BE DEAD!
