I've been thinking about doing this for a while, but now the situation is dire. Tim is my best friend. As many of you know, Andrea and Tim are saintly, at least when it comes to giving until it hurts. Andrea has MS and various more specific ailments that come from that, which greatly limit her ability to earn a full income. She must also often take time off work to care for their grandson David. Tim has had extended time off work because of the ups and downs of the construction trade, and now he is missing much work because of the radiation and chemo treatments he is getting for cancer. He must pay 20 percent of any medical bills he incurs. On top of everything else, they're a little behind on house payments, and getting legal threats from Wells Fargo.
With "gofundme," 95% of donations go directly to Tim and Andrea. They will use the money to catch up on the house and make copays on Tim's medical bills. They need to the money ASAP; I plan to leave this campaign up until July 1.
It's about time people gave back to these two wonderful people. I know that Tim has been there for me countless times; it would mean so much to be able to do this small thing for them. So please, take a week or a month off from McDonald's, or Caribou, or whatever, and pitch in. I'll invest the first $100, even though things are tight for me right now too.
