*fundraising for Autumn*

When Autumn was born there were significant complications and she was in the NICU for almost two months. As a result, she has to be taken to doctor appointments four times a month an hour away from where we reside. Shane and I share an old, rundown vehicle and I worry that any one of these days, its going to break down or need servicing again. With only one of us working (for her first year), we can not afford a better car. On days that I have to take her to the appts, I have to drop him off 45 minutes away where he works, drive an hour and a half to the doctor, an hour back home, then back to his work then home again. Even if we could muster up money to initially put down, l) still the matter of monthly payments and insurance. This is causing the both of us a lot of stress because there's absolutely nothing we can do about moving or changing jobs yet. So, I've humbly succumbed to fundraising as an option and pray that it works. If anyone has *any* questions, please feel free to contact me via fb/email/text. And in advance, we are beyond grateful for your support. edit 1/19/18 if we exceed our goal, we plan on using the money for a deposit and first months rent on a place closer to his work. We initially planned on doing that as soon as we had enough saved, but figured realistically that it wouldn't happen until the end of 2018. edit - 1/27/18 Shane is going to be starting his apprenticeship the first week of Feburary for 12 weeks so he can further and better provide for Autumn and I, making all of this even more necessary. UPDATE - we are now able to put a down payment on a Chevy Equinox 1/29/18
