Pippas Car Accident Fund

Phillippa and her little fam were in a bad car accident Sunday morning on their way to go apple picking. A driver cut them off on the highway and Pippa had to be extracted with the jaws of life. Baby and Chad are fine and Phillippa is alive and gnarly, (with a broken pelvis, arm, ribs and a punctured lung in the ICU) - but their car is a total loss, and she will be out of work with a baby to look after, so I'd like to set up a way for everyone who can to pitch in. Anything we get over the original goal amount, which was the cost of getting Pippa back into a safe used car, will go toward child care and expenses that are piling up while she gets well. Please give only what you can, and never feel bad that it isn't enough, any amount helps.

Everyone has been so amazing helping, and the support and love you are all showing has given Phillipa the strength and hope to get through the hard road ahead, knowing that things are gonna be alright. Chad is focused on working as much as possible to support their little fam and taking care of the baby and getting to the hospital as much as possible to be there for pippa in her recovery. Pippa has been reading the updates in the hospital on her phone and is amazed and humbled by the outpuring of support from many she knows and so many she doesn't. 

I cannot possibly thank you enough, or express with enough gratitude what a difference this outpouring of support has made to us.
