Please help out for an amazing woman, Kathy Nelms!

Hello everyone! As we all know 2020 has been a difficult year for most. We're here to kindly ask you to help out our Grandma Kathy. This year has unfortunately been her worst year. She has endured more than she could have ever expected. She is barely getting by and her livelihood is at an all time low. She owns The Krash as most of you know. A small dive bar in Bridgeview. She has always done what she can for her small business. Always put forth her everything for her bar. On October 21st there was a fire at the bar. It was an electrical fire. They were forced to close the bar down and there isn't a reopening date set yet. Between the fire and the Coronavirus (which sadly she has gotten now) shutting her down multiple times so far.  She has fallen hard on bills for pretty much everything. Even when they get clearance to reopen she isn't sure they will be able to because of covid. We're here asking you to please help our Gramma Kathy out. Help a woman who has the kindest heart. Help a woman who would give you the shirt off her back in the blink of an eye. Help a woman who is simply just trying to survive! She hasn't had any incoming money in awhile. She never asks anyone for anything. She is someone who always figured it out when the world has put her in a tough spot, until now... So now we're here trying to help make sure she doesn't have to worry as much. Stress herself out more than she already is. We're here asking you to find it in your heart to help our wonderful Gramma survive this awful, heavy, and, terrible year! Help her keep her home and business alive. Please. Whether it's $5 or $50. Every single dollar helps. She is unaware that we're doing this on her behalf. We'd like to please keep it that way. We'd love to be able to surprise her with any help at all. She would not want anyone to donate if they couldn't. Thank you so very much for reading this! Thank you for considering donating to our amazing Gramma. We appreciate it more than we can ever express! Thank you and take care.
--Justine & Jake.
