Plant Mode Vehicle Fund

I was generously given a vehicle in December when the Jeep I was lovingly driving suddenly died. It was a Chevy Malibu, and a little tight on room for plants, but it kept me going! I had to give the vehicle back so they could sell it for emergency cash that they really needed, and I didn’t have on hand. It had a transmission that I was told could fell out at any time, so it wasn’t long term to begin with. I posted a call to help on my FB Page, asking if anyone wanted to sell me a dependable vehicle on some kinda payment plan as my business cash flow is low and dedicated to more plants and a strict sales tax repayment plan (totally my fault on this) well my friend Andy offered up a really really really generous offer for a 2004 Subaru Forrester with only 88k miles on it. He is willing to sell it to me for only $1500. He could easily sell it for much more. He also says if I could get half of that down, that I could make payments for the rest. This would really keep Plant Mode going, as I’m at a stand still right now with getting plants. There are a couple other Plant Mode plans that this vehicle would really help, one of which will be Plant Mode plants being sold at an awesome campus cafe. Any funds donated to this go fund me will go directly towards getting this car. If only a small amount is raised, it’s going towards putting half down on car, if enough comes in to get it outright... well, that would be awesome. Anything past that goes to the plates and insurance as I’m really hoping to have it rolling and legal by April 3rd, as that’s a potential big plant run day for my early April installs. Ps. Cars are great for getting dog food for the pup some of you helped me get in December The biggest thanks!
