Healing Jamie and Helping Faith

Jamie Crawford is our cousin, nephew, brother, son, and an awesome single dad. His daughter Faith, now 5, is the BEST thing that has ever happened to him and he is the first to say this. From moment one he has been there for her every step of the way and for the last few years he has had sole custody and has been her everything. 

In 2018 he started his own business, WeldedWoods, making beautiful custom furniture so that he could work from home and be there for her full time. His business has really taken off and he was in a great place. 

Unfortunately, Jamie had a bad accident in early May 2019, breaking his jaw in multiple places, getting countless stitches on his face and in his mouth, losing many teeth including the front, a painful hernia and other injuries. He is honestly lucky to have survived, though and it could have been so much worse, but we believe he is still here because his daughter needed him. Unfortunately, because he just started his own business, he has no benefits, no income, and still has expenses to cover (rent, utilities, vehicle payment and auto insurance, food, living expenses, etc.). He also now has business expenses and will need to cover those. He'll need to be off of work for months and have two more surgeries for his jaw and the hernia, and extensive dental work (estimated at $20k over the next year). We estimate that he'll need about $5k per month for about 6 months to cover personal and business expenses until he can work again full time. So we're making the goal $50k.

While Jamie is a very proud man, he has allowed us to ask for help on his and Faith's behalf. Faith is his world and his motivation to get well and keep going. She is the sweetest girl around and she needs her daddy to get well to continue taking care of her.

We've all contributed to crowdsourcing campaigns like this for people in need and hope that others will help him and Faith, too. Asking for help is a difficult thing, but we all need help at times and this is our time to help Jamie and Faith. Thanks in advance for anything you can give to help out.
