Car wreck leaves family struggling

I’m Rosie Harper and I’m very worried about my families ability to maintain our jobs and pay our bills. After our accident we haven’t been able to pay our bills. Life sometimes snowballs the bad times and once your behind it seems like you will never get ahead. When I returned from the hospital and the hotel back to my home My propane had run out and it will be over $300 to get the lowest amount of gas delivered. My bath and shower froze and broke the pipe over a year ago and I haven’t been able to find the money to get it fixed.
My family, 3 kids and myself and a friend of the family were all in a car accident on Christmas Eve after shopping and picking up my daughter from work. I flew out of the car into the rd and my daughters godfather Curtis was in the hospital until today which is the first of the year. I had insurance but my insurance only covered liability and not my car so it’s going to pay for the guardrail but not for us to have a car. I’m not looking for anything fancy just something that gets good mileage and can hold up to a lot of miles. My car that was destroyed had 350,000 miles on it and was still going strong when the accident occurred. My family needs a car so that we can get 4 different people to work everyday. My sons are in the beginnings of starting a construction company and need to finish the contracts they already do that they will attract new clients and continue working. My daughter works in the front lobby of The Boars Head resort and needs to get to work and I work cleaning houses and in a winery. We live rurally so there is no public transportation for us to use.I’ve got a goal of 1300$ now and my friends have been very generous and the alumni at Norfolk Catholic reached out immediately. The Boars Head in gave us a place to stay that was near the hospital on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day . People have reached out and been both generous and kind. Im humbled and grateful. I thank you for considering my go fund me. I appreciate all the kindness that has been hoisted upon me but I still need a little more money to make it happen. Thank you so very much and Happy New Year.

So, yes, I slid on the ice and wrecked my fabulous new car. And yes thank goodness for that insurance that all my friends got me! I know I said I was transformed on my Facebook post two days ago and really I am! However the thought of having to put myself out there again asking for money is hard. I’m ashamed. I feel like everyone was excited for me and now I let everyone down. I’m back to feeling like I’m kinda pitiful at 51 to have to ask for money like I’m not a grown up. But I have to pay my deductible and my next car insurance payment is feb 2 and I have to use that money to pay my deductible. So I’m asking humbly again. Thank you please share. I probably need about 1000$ to cover my expenses from this particular accident, gas for someone to come get me, having to eat out in Richmond, deductibles and so forth. So I’m putting it out there who knows what will happen. I can tell you I will be doing a performance piece about this entire saga. I’ll record it and send it out or let you know so you can see it live. Thanks and blessings to you all/

Hello all, I’ve said thankedeca you to you all and then my car slipped on the ice and I hit another guard rail. Crunched the front of my new car. Luckily because of you I have insurance and everything will be taken care of, however after I pay my deductible I will not have the money for some of the direct payment bills that the go fund me was paying for, so I beg for help again. Please share you never know who will be moved. I need about $1000 dollars to cover those payments. Thank you again so very much!

Hello everyone, I am updating my fundraising goals because I didn’t realize how big of a chunk of it would go to go fund me! Sorry, but they took about 100$ so my total is still less than my original goal. Thanks everyone and I also have a pay pal which doesn’t seem to take anything out. Much love to you all and many many thanks. I’m blessed with friendship and support!
