Air Nomad Cafe's New Engine

James and Amy have lived in their lovable home on wheels, Sky: The Air Nomad Cafe for the last two years. Unfortunately Sky's engine failed due to a mechanical defect. A little piece of metal inside the engine broke off and smashed the internals of the engine destroying it. Although James and Amy had purchased a warranty policy to protect them in this exact scenario, they were denied coverage. The warranty company claimed that the policy was void because Sky was featured in a YouTube van tour and thus deemed a "commercial vehicle". Legal actions were tried but did not prevail. With little money and winter approaching the couple was left with no option but to leave their little home at the shop in South Dakota and return to their hometown to stay with their families and work until they can afford Sky's new engine. Along with being their home, Sky is also a free tea cafe where people can meet and socialize in a genuine and cashless environment: "Sharing tea with a fascinating stranger is one of lifes true delights." The van has served as a gathering place for many nomads in the winter time. Last winter Air Nomad Cafe served over a hundred of cups of free tea at nomad hot spots like RTR and Skooliepolooza but without your help the cafe won't be able to make it to the desert this year to share with everyone. If you can donate anything to help James and Amy afford the cost of their engine repair, and return to their home, they would be beyond grateful.
