Continued Support for Pat Kipping

Donation protected
Hi everyone, I want to thank you again for being a part of this campaign, and I’m really excited to share a few things with you.  The experience of meeting and befriending Pat and Stan, people who used to be strangers, has made a huge impact on my life, and I was surprised when GoFundMe reached out to me about making a video to share our story with even more people.  You can watch the first ever GoFundMe Studios documentary Jim Ford - Repo Man below!

I didn’t expect any of this, but I took action when I saw the need for it, and here we are.  I encourage everyone reading this to consider how you might connect with and help a stranger in your community.  I’m inspired to look for more opportunities to spread kindness and hope you will be too.

As you can see in the video, your donations have made a huge difference for Pat. I know she’d benefit from continued help and kindness especially after her husband Stan’s recent passing and all the costs for that. I’ve raised our campaign goal to $35,000 to help her with medications and bills.

Please watch our story and share the link to this campaign with your friends and family so they can watch too:  If you have even $5 to donate, I know first hand how much your support would mean to Pat. Thank you! 

So most everyone knows that ive been a repoman for almost 20 years! Ive seen just about everything you can imagine from being shot at to being run over and everything in between... This past week I had to repo a elderley couple that were around 80 years old! They'd fallen behind because of the price of her husbands medications that have doubled over the last year! I was told he has the begining stages of dimentia and that they couldnt even affored to get a few of his scripts this month because of the price increases! I cant list the name of the debtor for legal reasons or the bank but after talking with Tom tonight we figured we need to do something to help these people out! the payoff on the car is just over 2100 dollars plus repo fee which im going to cancel! The car is a 98 buick thats in great condition and i can tell they have always taken care of! I figure that if everyone ive tipped 100.00 would throw in 10.00 we could pay it off asap! This is their only car and they have no relatives that can help so I wanna try to get this paid off by tues or weds if possible!! Please help me out on this and thanks in advance-Jim
