C- The Next Letter in The Alphabet Challenge
C is the next letter in the alphabet challenge and today it stands for Charity, Christ, Critical Care, Caregiver, and Chaplin.
Wow, that is a sentence full of emotion. I want to bring attention to an organization that encompasses all of these C words in one mission. To serve the critically ill clients they encounter and showing the love of Christ by transporting these patients and their caregivers to the facilities or homes where they can get the best caregivers available. I am talking about Grace On Wings. My son is applying to be a volunteer with this great organization as a paramedic and respiratory therapist. He has degrees in both and will serve with the team of Christians in delivering the patient by air to where they need to be for the best care possible. He is so excited to be starting the process with this group from south of Indianapolis.
Check out their website for information at http://www.graceonwings.org/ They transport critical patients by air ambulance that cannot afford to get to the care they need. It is just awesome how they help people and for no charge. It is an organization I will be contributing to in the future and who knows, maybe as a critical care nurse, I can volunteer someday.
Let me know what you think about this organization. I would be interested to know if any of the readers have experienced this kind of need and how that need was met.
