The van was how I commuted to and ran errands for work, how the band commuted to shows and toured, how I drove up regularly with all my gear to get to shows and practice in New York, how I was able to visit my mom and dad (who is currently battling colon cancer and the reason for our move from Brooklyn) every week. Without a vehicle, I have no livelihood. There was also damage to our landlord's garage, which we will have to pay to have repaired as well.
The money would go towards fixing the garage, getting the cars towed and junked, getting Joel a bike, and purchasing a new van so that I can continue to be work, spend time with my family, and so Haybaby can continue to exist and tour. I am still in complete shock. Transitioning to life in Virginia has been extremely costly and we haven't been able to make and save enough beyond exactly what we need to get by, and saving enough to purchase a vehicle with our income would take many months.
I know times are tough for everyone and there are so many good causes to donate money towards to, but I have no idea what we are going to do without help. Thanks so much for just taking the time to read this.
