I recommend this to everyone."
"I love this family! So much passion for what they do. To overcome what they have is just an inspiration.
Now the BBQ - that's just amazing!!!"
"Damn good sandwich without all the BBQ sauce to try to make it seem like bbq. U ever see that bus stop and do yourself a treat."
On June 24, 2004 the Sale family lost their oldest child Kristy. Kristy was mentally disabled and passed away suddenly due to natural causes in her sleep. She left behind her parents David and Jeannette and her 4 younger siblings Danielle, Ashley, Kayla and Joshua.
Tragically, on April 24, 2010 the Sale family was again left devastated when they lost yet another daughter, Danielle (nickname Nellie) to what the media in Portland Oregon described as the "worst bus accident in Trimet history" when a bus driver made an illegal left-hand turn striking 5 people in a crosswalk, killing Danielle.
Nellie's is a 1965 Bristol Lodekka Double Decker Bus that has been in the Sale family for 15 years. Originally from England the bus, along with 20 others, was imported to Valdez Alaska with the hopes of becoming an Alaskan tour bus. After realizing the buses weren't fit for Alaskan roads and weather conditions, Randy Sale purchased the bus shortly afterwards in hopes of converting it into an RV. After overcoming much heartache the Sale family was ready to give back to their community and lend a helping hand to families who needed it. So, Randy's brother, David, purchased the bus, put it on a ferry from Alaska to Seattle Washington where it would spend the next three years being converted into Vancouver's Premier Food Truck and Party Bus. We replaced everything on the bus from the floor down and we remodeled everything from the floor up.
Shortly after purchasing the bus, the Sale family came up with their own foundation to help grieving families in Clark County, called Dani's Wish Foundation. It was developed for families who are facing the tragic death of their child due to an accident, homicide, suicide or sudden unexpected death. We assist in providing them with a means to honor their deceased child with a proper burial. Our wish is to honor Danielle by ensuring others be treated in the same manor – with love, respect and compassion during this time of crisis, grief, and loss. 10% of Nellie's proceeds go to Dani's Wish Foundation.
Nellie's proudly serves Happy Cup Coffee roasted in Portland Oregon by "people with potential"; Oregonians with disabilities who want to lead productive lives. Great coffee paired with a great cause, so everyday we're celebrating Kristy and her legacy.
