Hurricane Irma relief for Andrea

Edit: So we were able to raise the initial $1,500 for my sister for her car. Her car ended up needing a new transmission which they quoted her at $5,000. So instead with all the donations she was able to put a down payment on a new car! So amazing! However she is not out of the woods yet. Her and her son Cole are still living out of a hotel with the few clothes/items they were able to bring. There is still no running water where she lives (summerland key Florida). Her house is also not in good enough shape for them to be living there. We are hoping to raise enough to get her the food/hotel stay/ food for the animals/ gas money ect part that FEMA isn't and to get her into a new apartment. She found one in big pine key that is $1,500 a month but needs to come up with the first last and security deposit. Seriously any little bit helps! 
Hi I'm Rachael Martin and my sister Andrea Martin lives in Key West Florida. I'm sure you all have heard about hurricane Irma on the way. She packed up her car with her son Cole, 2 dogs, and 2 cats to evacuate. She got about 5 hours away to Okeechobee Florida before her car broke down. She is currently stranded waiting for a tow company because AAA refused to come out because it is too far for them. Andrea is a newly single mother trying to make ends meet. There are no hotels vacant in Florida anymore and she does t have enough for the tow and/or to get her car fixed. She will be using the money to fix her car/get a hotel/get back to Key West/ and hopefully the storm doesn't hit and she has somewhere to go home to. I will be withdrawing the money and either western union or money gram it to her since she only had an online bank and you can't deposit the money there. If you know Andrea you know she would give the shirt off her back for anyone in need. Any little bit helps!
