Help Al put his face (& life) back together!

On Thursday June 20th, Allyson was involved in an accident while biking home from work. While traveling in the bike lane, he was hit head-on by someone riding on the wrong side of the road on one of the new rental E-scooters. This accident caused him to sustain very serious trauma to his face, including multiple breaks to the jaw/nose/orbit/palate, multiple lacerations requiring more than  20 stitches, and a dangerous amount of air in his chest cavity. He spent the night in the trauma unit of the ER after being transported there from another hospital. Although he will make a full recovery, the medical bills he has accrued paired with needed recovery time away from work, has left him in need of help. Allyson unfortunately does not have health insurance, so any donations would be immensely appreciated.  

For those of you who don't know Al, he is a tattoo artist at both Evoke Tattoos and Skin Abrasions, and an avid bicyclist and skate boarder. He is humble and modest, and would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need. We're starting this fundraiser hoping to alleviate some of his stress due to bills caused by this accident, and let him concentrate on healing. Every donation adds up, regardless of amount. Thank you for taking the time to read this, we know that Al appreciates everyone's care and concern. We will be updating his progress and recovery. 

Thank you so much,
