Review for Keep Kids Alive Drive 25, Omaha, NE, USA
My family has endured the over whelming loss of my 7 year old baby boy, Matthew. During this time we have been graced with meeting many loving, caring people and organizations. One of the organizations I would like to recognize is, “Keep Kids Alive Drive 25”, created by Tom Everson.
The mission of this organization is to create public awareness of obeying the posted speed limit signs, especially in residential areas and support families who have lost loved ones due to careless/reckless motorist. This organization has helped me to connect with other grieving families and motivate me in pursing to educate others of the tragedies that can be a result of speeding. We all know it only takes seconds to have a life changing incident happen and all I ask is that people just SLOW down. We, the motorist have taken the responsibility to operate a motor vehicle and should do so with respect to the laws, other motorist, pedestrians and more importantly the children; who may run out into the road for a ball, their dog or on a bike.
Mr. Everson has dedicated himself for this cause and has reached out to my family, consoling us and letting us know that we are not alone that there are other families who can empathize that burning overwhelming feeling of emptiness you have left in your heart, feeling as if you’re alone, hopeless and broken.
Mr. Everson is making a special trip to meet with me and my family on Sunday, to have dinner and show his continued support. It takes special Angels here on this earth to comfort a broken heart and we are honored to be able to meet with him. We will forever be grateful for Mr. Everson and this cause.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
