Okay everyone – THIS IS A SURPRISE PLEASE DO NOT CALL, MESSAGE OR EMAIL my mom about this. Some of you may know that my mom Athena was in a very bad motorcycle accident two years ago. She was hit by a young girl while test riding her just restored 1978 HD. She was on her first test ride when a young girl turned right from the center lane and ran her over. Of course the girl was not properly insured and everything went downhill from there. My parents made it through obstacles that would crush many, including every household item and article of clothing they owned being stolen from a storage unit they had rented for a month. Every day as it gets better for them I watch my mom struggle to save money to get her bike back on the road. She saves and then someone needs for something (my grandpa monetarily for medical and living expenses and her time as his caregiver) and she now helps a cancer patient care for her horse while going through medical stuff (her time) – she ALWAYS puts everyone first. My mom has always done charitable acts of kindness and still through her own personal struggles she continues to do so.
She doesn’t show it and always keeps a smile and her positive attitude, but I see her face well up with tears when she sees people riding and I hear her cry sometimes when a Harley rides by the house or when my dad pulls up on his after work. She turns the shower on and thinks we don’t know… But we do know, we know that her heart is so big and she deserves to be herself again and that is not possible without her motorcycle. So we decided since she won’t let any one person gift her money to fix her bike, (a few have tried) we would collectively raise the funds through fundrazor/paypal from all of us who love her and want to see her on the road again. We would ask that everyone give 1-10 dollars and that NO ONE PERSON DONATE MORE THAN 10 DOLLARS. (If you choose to donate more that is on you but we will be explaining the request for 1-10 donations-She would spaz out on us otherwise- she is probably gonna spaz anyway when she finds out what we did)This will allow her to rebuild her destroyed motorcycle properly with real parts, not wrecked parts she cleans up as much as she can. Real paint, not home depot spray can finish, a new frame she can register here in Florida and so on… Our goal is to raise as much as we can and it may not be enough for everything but we know it will be way better than what she is doing now. Should we raise more than needed for the rebuild the rest will be used to rebuild her personal items (Clothes and shoes as she has only a few items that have been purchased since the storage was robbed last year). AGAIN THIS IS A SURPRISE DO NOT ALERT HER TO THIS PROJECT! THE FUNDS RAISED WILL GO DIRECTLY ON A PAYPAL CARD THAT SHE CAN USE TO PURCHASE HER PARTS. THE CARD WILL BE PRESENTED TO HER ON HER BIRTHDAY OCTOBER 2, AS LONG AS NO ONE SPOILS IT. Everyone involved will be placed on a birthday card, so if there is a message please include it and we will add it. We have disabled the FB on her phone and changed the password to her accounts ( All of them FB-LinkedIn-Twitter-Instagram-AboutMe) so it should take her quite some time to get back on, as lately she is easily frustrated with all things computer. (We are hoping anyway because I’m posting this on her wall) Forwarding this and re-posting would be awesome. We are currently trying to hack her blog site that she has finally gotten back to place a donate now button also– www.vagabondchickie.com

Thanks in advance to all for helping us, help my mom- who of course does so much for so many before doing for herself. We look forward to seeing her again soon, as the Motor Maid, Mom, Wife, Daughter and Friend that we miss and love so much. If you cannot participate we understand as times are hard for everyone right now, if you do not want to participate we understand, but please DO NOT post any negative comments anywhere with regard to this project! MY MOTHER ALWAYS TELLS ME IF YOU HAVE NOTHING NICE TO SAY – SAY NOTHING AT ALL! Peace! Des “Athena’s Love Bug” /Daughter
