“I wrote these letters so that long after I’m gone, you’ll know that I loved you, had great hopes for you, and wanted to give you my best advice on living in this tough world. If I can’t be there with you, I hope my letters will act as a sort of reminder of me—as if I’m standing there beside you, whispering in your ear, and putting my arm around your shoulder.”

Mike Huckabee has worn many hats through­out his life: pastor, politician, governor, presidential candidate, talk show host, rock bassist, pundit, husband, and father. But since his first grandchild was born, he’s found that the role of grandfather is more satisfying than just about any of the others. 

Huckabee wanted to give something to his grand­son, Chandler, that would last forever. He began drafting a series of letters to Chandler recounting heartwarming stories from his past and the bittersweet lessons learned along the way. With the birth of his granddaughter, Scarlett, just a year later, Huckabee was further inspired to convey his love and wisdom.

    Governor Huckabee, I hope you can help me!

    I have seen several spots recently on Fox regarding the relief effort for Hurricane Sandy, and have tried to contact someone to find out how to donate household goods, to no avail.

    I am a single mom, and I have been putting aside items for several months to have a big garage sale next month, but I would rather donate these items to someone to help them start rebuilding their lives. These things aren't "trash"...I am trying to follow Dave Ramsey's advice ("Sell everything but the kids!" haha) to raise some extra money to buy a couch for my kids TV room. So most of the the things I am getting rid of are things I just haven't used in the last year, and I am trying to "simplify" my own life. I have more than SUV full of things, but no way to transport them to the northeast.

    In fact, if I could get someone to donate a truck to transport more, I think I could get enough donations from my school, my own kids school, my church, and my community, to "stuff a truck". I would love to take this on, I just don't have the right contacts. I have called Red Cross (the automated outgoing message indicates they are mostly taking monetary donations), I have called the NY Senator (or Congressman?) from Breezy Point, whose neighborhood burned (they can't take calls or donations from outside their district), and I emailed Team Rubicon over a week ago, and have gotten no response.

    Can you help me??

    Happy Holidays...and our thoughts and prayers are with all those in your area who have been affected by the Superstorm.
