Hummer Holiday

Twenty-three children on the South Plains will have a merrier Christmas this year thanks to the fifth annual Hummer Holiday. Local Hummer owners sponsored kids from the Lubbock Boys and Girls Club and from the Children's Miracle Network.

After being picked up in Hummers the kids were then taken to breakfast at McDonald's, from there they were taken to Wal-Mart for a shopping spree.

One special little girl named Rani Cowley was chosen for the event. Rani was featured on NewsChannel 11's coverage of the Children's Miracle Network. From the way Rani acted while shopping at Wal-Mart no one would suspect that the four-year-old has undergone multiple surgeries from burns she received when her dress caught fire in November of 2004. Rani's brother and two sisters where also chosen to be in this years Hummer Holiday.

"She is having a blast. All the kids are riding in the Hummers and then coming to Wal-Mart and picking out the presents. They are having a good time," said Tabatha Cowley, Rani's mother.

When Rani's medical bills piled up, the community showed their support for the Cowley's.

"It is a small investment in the happiness of children who might otherwise go without gifts this Christmas season," said Dr. Juan Munoz, a supporter of the Hummer Holiday.

And it is this small investment that the Cowley kids are sharing with others.

"They are all buying for each other I am really surprised that they are not spending it all on themselves," stated Tabatha Cowley.

"It's better buying for your family than you, because I love them." Said Destiny Cowley, Rani's sister.

For any one who wishes to either donate or participate in next years Hummer Holiday you can go by Stan's Car Stereo on Frankford and see Jeff Staud for more information.
