Help Carl Boldenow recover

On the night of September 30th Carl was at a function at the mulberry bar. While standing with friends laughing and talking he was viciously attacked from behind, being struck on the head with a hammer, causing severe damage to the rear lower left area of the brain. This area of the brain controls communication and speech.  Due to this incident, Carl had to undergo an emergency craniectomy that resulted in parts of his brain, and skull being removed due to being damaged beyond repair.

Carl is an extremely hard worker, and works very hard to improve his and his families lives and is very proud of his accomplishments as a welder.  For the possibility of this talented man's future to be put in jeopardy over such a horrific act of violence is appalling.  Carl did not deserve this, nor did his family deserve to be put through emotional and financial hardships.

Carl is that friend that is always there for you. It doesn't matter what you need him for, he is always there. If it is just sitting at the bar talking about problems after a bad day, or needing encouragement to keep fighting and never give up.  He has the unique gift of telling you how it was and not what you wanted to hear. Even if you didn't want to hear it he made sure you did, loud and clear.

Carl is now facing one of the most difficult challenges in life and he needs our help now more than ever. It is now our turn to help out the man who has always been there for all of us.

The goal of this fundraiser is to provide Carl and his family with enough support to make a speedy recovery by removing some financial stress. Carl faces a long difficult road ahead of him and will need all the help he can get.  We have set the goal at $10,000 to help provide for him and his family assistance for housing, transportation, utilities, food and medical bills or whatever else is needed at this time. 
All donations will be given to the Boldenow family.

With so much support and love I see for this man on Facebook, I believe we can pass this goal and provide him help well into the future. Please help ease the burden of uncertainty during his long difficult road ahead.

If you are looking for a way to help this is it. Every little bit helps.

If you can't donate please share the hell out of this gofundme.

Carl and his family thanks you for your support.
