Making A Dream Come True
There has been a lot of progress in helping my sister Phoebe return to her home town of Santa Cruz, California. She is no longer stuck way up on the rural coast of northern California and the rv trailer is now in storage up north.
Thank-you to everyone who has contributed to the GoFundMe campaign so far!
Part of what we need to accomplish is bringing the rv and all of her personal belongings down from up north. She drove down with pretty much nothing and when she arrived last week after driving all the way from Ukiah, the check engine light in her Jeep had come on.
We know that the Jeep needs new brake pads, a tune-up, and the four wheel drive checked. But now we also need to have what ever is causing the check engine light to come on. And we are scheduled to bring the Jeep in for repairs to a very experienced and trustworthy mechanic Tuesday morning.
The needed repairs are probably going to be one of the biggest expenditures of bringing Phoebe back home. She has already begun searching for a job, but she is also going to need funds for a security deposit and first months rent somewhere. Hopefully within Santa Cruz County if not in Santa Cruz itself.
If you live anywhere near the San Francisco Bay Area or the Monterey Bay Area, then you know that $5,000 is pretty much the bare minimum to get her Jeep repaired, put cash down on a place to live, rent a truck strong enough to bring her rv and possessions down from Ukiah, and living expenses while we attempt to accomplish all of this.
Please help us make her dream come true!
Facebook will not allow me to boost a post that comes from GoFundMe, but they will allow me to pay to boost a post from my blog for Pedricks Corner.
You can find a link to the GoFundMe campaign at the top of the right hand side of this blog.
Please click on the link.
Please share like, share, and leave a comment. Especially if you know Phoebe.
Because liking and sharing posts is how they go "viral" and reach thousands of people.
Phoebe is a talented photographer and I would love to help her continue her art. As I post updates to the campaign, I've been adding as many of her photos as I can. We are limited to three per update. You can see them all by clicking on the little camera icon in the lower right hand corner of the main photo for the campaign.
