GONE TOO SOON Campaign Fundraiser

GONE TOO SOON-Hi, this is Debra with the eLegal's, a chapter of ABATE of SC, and we are trying to help raise funds for a campaign to create professional visual media showcasing the tragic aftermath of what happens when someone loses a loved one due to a senseless traffic accident. The family has to try and deal with the consequences and the court system. There is no advocacy to help them through the process. Please watch the video attached to understand what a family goes through after a fatal accident. The traffic offense was a "Failure to Yield." Generally, when someone is killed in what is considered a simple traffic accident, the fine for doing so is in the vicinity of 200.00. The guilty party will hire a lawyer to get out of this simple fine and the 2 points on the license. The judge in the case does not have the accident report or circumstances of the ticketed offense and almost always does not know that a fatality has occurred. The guilty party does not even have to show up in court. The monies you give, no matter what amount, will help ABATE lobby to change legislation of the current law and try to create advocacy with partial funds from the fines. It will also help us to create testimonials using the stories of the survivors who have to try and pick up the pieces when a young child loses a father, mother or sibling to one of these senseless acts. We hope these videos will make people think and take an extra few moments to make the decision that could save someone's life, if not their own. I know how much pain the survivors of these tragic accidents go through. Be part of the solution!
