Lifting Hayley's Ankle

Some of you may know that our refugee warrior, Hayley Smith, recently broke her ankle.  She was treated to a fun day on the slopes that turned sour when she fractured her ankle in two places. 

Hayley would be the last person to ask for help.  In fact she's the first person to offer it.  It's how she's built Lifting Hands International .  But right now it's Hayley's hands, er ankle, that need lifting.  She is fiercely dedicated to her work helping refugees, and making sure funds donated to LHI go to the right place.  Because of that she lives off very little, and certainly not enough to shell out for a costly medical deductable.  Let me shed some light on that.  I have worked and traveled with Hayley extensively over the last two years wtih LHI.  She doesn't spend a penny of donor money on operational expenses with out serous contemplation.  She will sleep on floors, eat like a college student and take long cheap buses to ensure donor money is being used for the real work.  She has very honestly given her whole self to this work.  I don't think it's a stretch to say she has sacrificed everything for it. 

Hayley will require surgery and physical therapy during her long recovery.  She will far exceed her health insurance deductable of $6,000.  She would never ask for help covereing these costs, but I will.  Let's help our friend, the one that has helped so many.  If each of my friends on facebook donated $6/£4.50 this would be covered in a snap.  I'd love to relieve this burden for Hayley, the one who is doing so much to relieve the burdens of others.  All money donated will go straight to Hayley for these medical expenses.  Please share! 

Thank you!
