Car for Wendy's worker

I'm reaching out to ask for help in raising money to buy a car for a hard-working mother of 3, so please pardon the raw-ness as I am normally not this sappy.

I currently live VERY close (Read: too close) to the Wendy's on I10 & Shepard in Houston, and while my husband and I enjoy cooking/eating healthy, out of sheer convenience I find myself visiting there more than I care to admit. Over the past two years, no matter what time or day I visit I always run into a young lady at the window. We never really talk too much other than pleasantries as it's a drive through (I don't even know her name!), but I always enjoy her friendly nature as well as admire her diligence"”she is seriously always there!

Prior to this Wendy's recent renovations she was pregnant; since they reopened I had not seen her and always wondered if everything went ok with her pregnancy and what she was up to. Today, she was back at the window, pleasant as always, minus the tummy. When I asked her how she was she responded that she was good, but hoped that she could soon afford a car as she has 3 little ones now and would like to drive them versus ride the bus. It was one of those moments that makes you realize how blessed you are in all that God has given you and how beautiful people are that work so hard to provide a good life for their family. A moment that I felt moved by God to do something and find some small way to help this woman with a need that would drastically improve her and her kids' lives.

As such, I have put together this fund to help raise money to buy her a car & warranty; nothing fancy, but something reliable that will last her for years and get her from home to work--one less worry on her plate. I would love to surprise her one day by pulling up in the drive thru, serving her with car keys, and simply tell her "God always provides".

Please help me in getting the word out by sharing this post as well as donating what you can.  

Thanks in advance for all your help and God Bless.
