I was reading the St. Cloud Times and saw this small note about a completely preventable tragedy:

Fundraiser for Stephanie Smith

When: Noon-5 p.m., Nov. 4.

Where: 103 River Oaks Drive (by Rocori High School on River Oaks Golf Course), Cold Spring.

What: Stephanie Smith is a 20-year-old Rocori High School graduate and is the daughter of Sharon Smith of Cold Spring and Tom Smith of St. Cloud. She is at St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester in a drug-induced coma, battling from E. coli poisoning. Friends and family are having a fundraiser to help Stephanie with expenses.

Contact: Jackie Mueller, 320-685-8485; Kim Anderson, 320-685-3073.

Where is help from Cargill and Sams Club as I posted a few days ago?

I have a challenge for my avid blog readers.  Since this family will have to sue to get Cargill to do the moral thing, let’s step up.  I will personally match, dollar for dollar, each donation up to $10,000 total.
