Carolina Needs a Car

I met Carol having just come from living abroad as an aupair. I didn't want to make new friends my first semester at college because I missed all the ones I had left behind. Meeting Carol was different. She was from Brazil, rocked amazing hair, and had left everything behind to be an aupair here in the US and pursue education. She is one of the most dedicated and driven friends I have known. She works tirelessly on her school and has been paying her way through while continuing to support family back home. 

She has been driving the same car for years to and from school and it now has too many problems to keep putting money into it.

This week Carol was involved in a hit and run. The car hit her and abandoned the scene. When they hit her it caused her to hit a rental car in front of her. She has no insurance. She gave up car insurance recently to be able to continue paying for school.

Carolina needs help. She doesn't have family to bail her out of this situation and any amount you donate will bring hope. 

Where will the money go?

-$500 fine for not having car insurance
-$4,000 toward getting a more sustainable car

Ideas: donate your take-out coffee expenses this week! How old are you? Donate that number! Don't have money? Send her an encouraging word or ask friends if they know someone who can help. We can't all do great things, but we can do small things with great love...I ask you to give Carol some hope today.
