Help A Displaced Colorado Flood Victim

$450 of $5,000 goal

Drew Aslin  DENVER, CO
On September 11, 2013, my cat Suki, my Boston Terrier Batman, and I were displaced from our apartment in Boulder, CO as a result of the recent natural disaster.


While the three of us made it out OK, a lot of our belongings and furniture didn't. Unfortunately, renter's insurance doesn't cover floods, so we are trying to seek assistance in recovering our losses and possibly relocating (FEMA takes a week to respond, and my landlord is not offering temporary shelter or a rough estimate return time, only the advice to "call FEMA."). I am currently crashing at a multipurpose co-op/recording studio/show venue in the Five Points neighborhood of Denver, CO, but obviously I can't wear out my welcome.





These funds will be used so I can get some clothes, furniture, recovery funds, and moving costs together to help my animals and I get back on our feet into our own place, and give the co-op a nice donation for their efforts. If you're short on cash, I will also gladly accept items in clean, good condition.

Sorry it's been a while since I've updated; I haven't been connected to the internet for a while and I've been busy with a lot of things.

Good news: I have a new place in Denver, thanks to FEMA helping with a security deposit and first month's rent, and a new job down in DTC!

Bad news: My 2006 Volvo S40 (an automatic with leather and a sunroof) got totaled for ~$12,000 because it had succumbed to over $16,000 of electrical damage from the flood.

I'm still in search of a nice pre-loved car that is 2006 or newer, under $12,000, automatic transmission, under 65,000 miles, 30+ mpg highway, and preferably all wheel drive. It needs to be inexpensive to maintain, accident free (with an up to date CARFAX report), and not priced above Kelley Blue Book Value. If you know someone trying to sell a car that meets my criteria, please get in touch! I would like to shop locally and get back to normal ASAP!

Again, thanks everybody for all your help so far! :)

Bad news is that my landlord and contractors made me rush to get everything out of my apartment today. The good news was that I had a loaner car (a station wagon!), and flood relief to help me out. Everything has been taken out of my apartment, and we have salvaged a lot more trash. SO THANKFUL FOR EVERYONE'S HELP! LOVE YOU ALL!
