Help Jess and Matt get Home

My sister Jess and her husband Matt are two of the hardest working people I know.  They've been touring musicians full time across the US and are still making time to work side jobs on their 'off hours', just so they can do the thing they love most:  seeing, loving on, and being present with their friends, family, and community all over the United States.  If you know either of them, you know that to be true.

It's been an uphill battle of financial burden for them. I know personally, having toured with Jess for five years.  And even more so recently, they've had a lot of van troubles.  So much so, that they can't even safely make the drive back to Colorado, where they've decided to make their home.

Right now they are sitting ducks in the Midwest, working pick up jobs and staying with family, trying to raise the money for the minimum repairs they need just to drive safely to Colorado. They've had to cancel shows just to make time to work. And they've been working almost non stop. But even after shopping around for the least costly mechanic, the repairs are going to be $2000, twice as much as they thought it would be. 

If you know Jess and Matt, you know their hearts are in the right place, you know they live very minimally, they don't ask for much in life, their music is honest ( and really good I might add ), and they could use a little break.  

So if you have the means to pay it forward, show them some monetary love. Or at least do it for me, because I love them to the moon and back.
