I have a dear friend that needs just a little help…

This is my friend Lori Blank, from Anchor Point Alaska. Lori is an amazing and resilient woman, she is a proud mother and a damn good salmon fisherman too. Unfortunately, Lori had a small accident with her laptop one day, spilling coffee on it, and in an instant, so much information was lost. Pictures, years of documents and so much more. So, the time has come to reach out to friends and family to see if we can help Lori out. Collectively we could easily get her the laptop she needs with an (almost current 2011), reliable model ($1,200.00 used from eBay with warranty).

Like any, if not all of us, Lori needs to stay in touch with her daughter in college, family and friends and she just can’t do this on a iPhone, not in her condition. Here is Lori’s quick story.

Lori has both MS and fibromyalgia. She has lost 97% of nerve function in her right hand. She also gets to enjoy regular migraines made worse by optical stress. Performing life's daily functions on a tiny iPhone screen is seriously stressful for her. Lori needs a reliable laptop again, and we have found a used one with a warranty for her on eBay.

Lori has been a writer since she was in elementary school. All she ever want to do is write books. Her parents used to get called in after school because of the crazy ideas that she would come up with in her creative writing class. People worried about her imagination, which as we all know, is a great quality to have as a writer!

In my many conversations with Lori, she has told me she claims to have a plethora of bestsellers in her head too. Lori actually has three books that are are almost completely written on the hard drive of the aforementioned coffee-drowned 2007 MacBook. As we all know, you simply cannot write a book on an iPhone, especially in her condition with her physical ailments. It is not logistically feasible. She loved her old MacBook. She faithfully backed it up all the time too. However, accidents do happen and for Lori, everything changed for the worse in an instant.

Lori lives on a single income, she doesn’t have the luxury of a dual income. That being said, & with her beautiful daughter is able to go off to complete her college education, Lori just cannot seem to get ahead. She has put aside some money, however it’s just not quite enough. Lori and some of her social media friends have done the research and helped her find the right laptop for her. She just needs $500.00 to go with her $700.00 to get the (used) MacBook Pro.

Lori works really hard and is an upstanding member of her community in Anchor Point, Alaska She is ultimately considered very friendly and helpful woman by her local towns people. She just need a few more dollars. Lori has been without her computer for almost 6 months now, and that’s just too long. Now, it’s our turn to make a huge difference in Lori’s life, please help if you can.
