Elsa Needs a New Furnace Detroit!

$4,081 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 106 people in 20 months
Metro Detroit Friends you helped me earlier this year when a friend's home burned down, so I'm back to ask for help. 

I have a situation with a 48-year-old mildly disabled woman, living in Detroit who is a very lovely lady with an equally as lovely 14-year-old son. Their furnace died last week and unfortunately, it cannot be repaired, (a friend was the tech on the scene and alerted me to Elsa's dilemma) the only remedy is a replacement.

We're talkin' $5,000 to replace the boiler (FYI - it's a steam boiler and they cost significantly more and the labor is much higher due to all the pipework)and let's not even get into what an immaculate home she keeps under a foundation that's less than worthy. You think you've got problems this holiday season? Think again.

I'm looking for 1,000 people to donate $5!  

The thought of them trying to survive on space heaters in a house that was wired long before the juice-pulling appliances they are using to stay warm were, sounds like a disaster waiting to happen.

Thank you in advance for helping me help Elsa and her boy!  <3

ELSA FINAL UPDATE: If there was any doubt that angels walk among us, let there be doubt no more!

We had 110 angels contribute to this effort and were blessed even more so in having one specific angel give me a huge donation today. Because of that, we believe we have found a soul willing to do the work for what we've collected! We are 95% sure he's our guy, he just needs to go to the site and see things for himself. He will be doing that first thing tomorrow morning.

Speaking of angels, we even had someone earmark a generous donation specifically for Elsa and her son to get a Christmas present for one another. <3

After 9 days, 2,845 views to the page, 193 shares and faith that this WOULD happen, we are closer than we have been in over 2 1/2 weeks to getting heat back in Elsa's Detroit home.

I promise I will try to get a picture of Elsa and her sexy new boiler to share with all of you. In the meantime, your continued thoughts and prayers for speed and ease of installment are appreciated and know that any monies collected over and above the actual cost of the boiler installation will go right to the family who have many more needs beyond what we collected for.

Bless all you little angels out there! Merry Christmas!

BLOWN AWAY! Just about 12 hours after I posted for Elsa's plight, we have already raised over 1/5 of what we need to have the boiler replaced. You guys are incredible. The faster we do this, the quicker there can be heat for her family. Thank you SO much for all the support!
