Stephen King Wants To Keep You Warm, Maine!

| Filed under: InspirationBookz

So he's giving back in a really nice way.

Times are tough all over, but in Maine, not having a steady income can mean not having enough money to buy heating oil. As we're heading into the winter months, that's really something that the residents in the area really can't afford to do without, so horror author Stephen King is stepping up to help some struggling folks.

He announced this week that his foundation will work with the three Bangor area radio stations he owns to raise $140,000 to buy heating oil for low-income residents. His hope is that his listeners will raise $70K for people, which he will than double with his own funds.

It might seem like a lot, but it means more than you can even imagine. The area can get all the help that they can get, so if you can do something for these people, you should. And Bravo to Stephen for putting such a wonderful event together to raise money for the cause.

    Good for him. You know, when he was hit by a car a few years back, the people of Maine were very nice about their comments, which was surprising to me, since the public has a tendency to turn on their "celebs" when opportunity knocks. Good for Mr. King, to assist those around him who need it. Nothing more important than keeping people warm in the winter. Now they can afford to eat!

    In Northern New England this is a huge cost and kudos to Mr. King for helping out his fellow Maine folks! Now this is how to use your "celebrity" status!

    You never hear enough of these stories - this is awesome and Maine is lucky to have Stephen King as one of their own. LOL - as long as they're sure they're not getting some kind of alien-based or haunted heating oil. I keed! This is true human kindness.
