Imagine driving your kids around every day in a car you KNEW for CERTAIN was unsafe. On February 12th, our amazing friend Christa got into a minor car accident while driving her 1985 Camry.  Her 14 year old daughter, who was wearing a seatbelt, cracked the windshield with her head. The seatbelt completely failed. Sana is fine, thankfully, but Christa, who is a single mom working as a teaching assistant, does not have the money to buy a safer car. Christa’s car has over 300,000 miles on it, with poor brakes, weak headlights and a faulty suspension. Our goal is to raise enough money for Christa to buy a reliable, safe car with under 100,000 miles on it. Please help us help her! There are three ways you can help:

 

1. DONATE A CAR! If you have an older car, even one in need of some work, consider donating it. Then we could use the remaining donations to do any necessary work on it.

 

2. DONATE MONEY! Friends of Christa, please consider what we are trying to do and give generously. Cars are expensive! If you are someone who would not have to think twice about getting your own car repaired or replaced, maybe you can afford to give $500-$1000 dollars and really push us towards our goal. If you have minor money worries, like us, maybe you could give $100-200. And if you feel like you can’t afford anything at all, maybe you could still give $5-50 without noticing a difference in a week or two. You can donate with paypal or a credit card through this site, or bypass the site and contact me directly to pay with cash or a check. My email is sarah@laughingdragonkungfu.com.

 

3. LOAN A CAR! Loan Christa a safe car until she gets a new one. One of the biggest problems for a person in Christa’s situation is how to get to work and pick up her kids until she finds a decent car. Not having a car threatens everything. If you can’t get to work, how can you keep your job? If you lose your job, how do you keep your house? Please consider offering her an extra car for a few weeks or your own car for even a couple of days. She has mine right now, but I will need it back pretty soon.

 

Please imagine yourself in Christa’s situation and give as much help as you can. We are counting on Christa’s many loving friends to keep her and her family safe on the road. Thank you all so much!
