Please help MINDI & MATT ❤️

In the early morning hours of August 19 (2017) my dear friend & college roommate and her fiancé were involved in a horrific auto accident. They were struck by another car on the 101 freeway in Los Angeles. They recently moved to Las Vegas from Santa Barbara, and were heading up the coast to visit family. The impact of the collision caused the car to spin and hit several other cars, coming to land facing the opposite direction. Air bags deployed and smoke collecting, Mindi tried to exit the vehicle when she was physically struck by another motorist. Matt had to drag (badly bleeding) Mindi to the median of the freeway. Thankfully several other motorists stopped to render aid while they called 911. The freeway was shut down by CHP and paramedics to help remove them from the freeway. Thankfully, they are both alive! Mindi & Matt recently used a lot of their savings $$ setting up their new life and securing employment in Nevada. They were each just a few weeks away from heath insurance from their companies. Now, they are facing a load of medical bills coming their way. Mindi was the most injured; her knees were deeply lacerated during the impact from the other car. She and Matt both have a lot of heavy bruising and abrasions. Unfortunately, doctors visits and physical therapy appointments will take up a lot of their life now. It is my wish that they are able to rest and heal without having to worry about extraneous expenses. Any little bit helps! If each of our friends could give up their coffee house latte one day this week and give it to Matt & Mindi, it would mean SO much to them. I'm asking for $5.00 from everyone who reads this link! Please? Thank you!!
