I'm raising money to help Elliot and I pay our bills. He has been unemployed since February, and very ill and unable to work since July. Please view full description.
We are blown away by the generosity and support we have been lucky enough to receive. We cannot thank you enough. My goal is that, once we get our feet back under us and debts paid- we hope to donate an equal amount to charities. We have in mind The Humane Society, The Willow Domestic Violence Shelter, The Community Shelter, Just Food, Planned Parenthood, Human Rights Campaign, and the American Civil Liberties Union. If you have a charity you'd like us to support, let us know in your donation comment!
I wish I had a better update for you, but things are about the same.
-Elliot has had multiple job offers fall through. One told him the next step was an in person group interview- and he was called before that date and told the position was filled. One had a start date and all his paperwork filed- when a technical issue pushed them back "several weeks."
-Considering that my accident involved hitting a concrete wall going 75mph, I can't stress how lucky I feel to be here, and with only the injuries that I did sustain. I have since graduated physical therapy, after working with them 3 days a week for six weeks to treat severe whiplash. However, I'm still dealing with some vision issues as a result of a concussion- which my Eye Doctor thinks was more like a mild Traumatic Brain Injury.
-I have been fortunate enough to borrow a vehicle from my mother in law, but we have not been able to afford a replacement for the car that was totaled in the accident.
-Elliot started HVAC school in October! He will be able to start in that field this summer. We are so excited for this opportunity, and ever grateful to his parents for their support regarding this.
That's all for now, we hope that you all have a wonderful and safe Holiday Season!
Hello everyone. As you may have heard, Friday evening I was in a high-speed car accident. I feel VERY fortunate to have only sustained the minimal injuries that I did. My car however, is totaled. We had just spent $700 that week on some emergency repairs, and I bought a full set of tires in June for $800. I really loved this car, and as our main vehicle this is a huge loss to us. Fortunately, since I was still paying it off, our full coverage insurance is covering many costs, but I still have a $500 deductible to pay. In addition, yet another job lead for Elliot that looked promising fell through. We really hate to do this, but we are once again looking for help. Anything helps. Thank you so much.
