G.B. is a hardworking small-business owner who came to the United States several years ago to build a more fruitful life for himself and his family.

To help

To donate to the Good Cheer Fund, go to goodcheerfund.com. For more stories, go to postand courier.com/goodcheer.

He and his wife are tireless volunteers for various community organizations, and their giving spirit blesses all who come into contact with them.

One of G.B.’s children was recently diagnosed with a terminal illness, which destabilized the family’s tenuous financial situation. In order to devote more time to care for his child, G.B. was forced to downsize his business, a decision that further eroded his finances.

Your generous donation to the Good Cheer Fund can help G.B. and his family regain their financial stability and ease their stress during this difficult time.

Since 1927, contributions to The Post and Courier’s Good Cheer Fund have helped the less fortunate in the Lowcountry during the holidays. The six charitable organizations sharing the funds are the Star Gospel Mission, Salvation Army, Lowcountry Food Bank, Carolina Youth Development Center, Association for the Blind and Coastal Catholic Charities.

Every penny of the money goes to these agencies, as there are no administrative costs involved.

Send your tax-deductible contributions to the Good Cheer Fund, c/o The Post and Courier, 134 Columbus St., Charleston, SC 29403-4800. Donations also may be made in person or online at www.goodcheerfund.com.
