A Better Day for the Darigans

         This is a fundraiser for an incredible family  who has been hit with a sequence of bad luck events recently. Just weeks ago Joe, a hard worker and wonderful father, suffered a serious injury of a broken tibia and fibia at the ankle joint requiring costly and painful orthopedic surgery and time away from work during recovery and physical therapy. Around the same time as Joe's injury, Jacki, an incredible mother (who spends all of her free time selflessly volunteering and investing her time, energy and love into children through community programs) unexpectedly and unfairly lost her job. 
         The unfolding of these events back to back couldn't have come at a worse time, right before the holiday season. They share two darling daughters (4th and 2nd grade) that light up any room they walk into and show kindness and compassion to all of those the come into contact with. This family is well known throughout the community for their giving nature, compassionate hearts and hard work ethic. 
        The past couple of years have not been easy for this amazing family, with life's curve-balls coming fast and furious and seeming to snowball too close together lately leaving them in a dire place of need. 
         As John Lennon once said "I get by with a little help from my friends." Please consider ANY help you can give during this time of hardship for these lovely parents and their sweet little girls as the approach the holiday season in their current situation. 100 percent of all funds raised (besides the small GoFundMe fees) will go directly toward the necessities they need to stay afloat.  No amount is too small to make a difference for these incredible people who live their lives daily trying to make a difference in the world. It is now their time to be on the receiving end of compassion and kindness.
