Beautiful people of DeviantArt, I know you are awesome. I’ve seen you come together in kindness and generosity before, and I am counting on you again. You see, my sister, Emily, my darling niece, Lily, and my Brother-in-Law, Chris need your help.
Sixteen months ago my sister, Emily, and brother-in-law, Chris were in a severe car accident. My sister was 4 months pregnant at the time. They were driving home from the house of a friend at night, and a moose walked in front of their car. My brother-in-law swerved away from the moose to protect my sister and the baby, but due to this, the full weight of the moose came through the windshield and hit him. My sister had cuts and bruises, but my brother-in-law had multiple broken bones, a collapsed lung, and a sever head injury. He spent months in a coma, and when he finally did come out, he faced many months more of rehab.
Currently, my brother-in-law is still in residential rehab, but there will come a time in the near future, when he will be released. The house my sister and he live in is a very narrow townhouse with three floors and many stairs. This house is now no longer adequate for Chris’ needs, and Emily will have to find a new house before Chris will be able to come home.
As you can imagine, funds are very low for Emily at the moment. To help facilitate getting a new handicap accessible house as soon as possible, a fundraising site has been set up.
I know that times are hard, and many of us are struggling just to make ends meet, but i ask that if you have the ability, you donate. Any little bit helps, and it will make the difference between Chris being able to come home and be with Emily and Lily, or them having to make other arrangements.
Any small donation helps. Your sharing this here in your journal, or anywhere else you are online also helps. Your prayers and positive thoughts help.
Donations can be made at any Royal Bank branch (if you are in Canada), or by Paypal or mail.
