Guys, over the last couple of years I have befriended a young man in my town that has had about as hard of a life as you can imagine to be 16. His mother is a friend of my wife and the whole family has fallen on some pretty hard times. Without going into too much detail, they have lost their home as of yesterday and had to move back into her mothers house (which is also a bad situation due to illness). Anyways, Ive gotten the boy into fishing...and he really enjoys it. Where they are living is very close to the Holston river and the young man is wanting a kayak for Christmas. Having two very younger sisters, age 4 and 6, he has been giving what money he can earn to his mother for his sisters Christmas gifts. I know its a long shot, but I wanted to ask if anybody on here might have or know of a decent used kayak that we could get this kid set up in? I myself dont have the money to buy one for him but, I thought Id at least ask to see if any of you guys might know of one not being used that needs a good home? I know its a long shot but, you just never know whats out there until you ask. This boy is a great kid that could easily turn down the wrong path given what he has seen in his very young life and Id just like to see him have a positive outlet instead of a negative one. Feel free to PM me or reply here if you can or know of anybody that might help this kid out.
