38951490_1556843306364442_r.jpeghi everyone, I am raising money to help my son James raise additional funds to replace his wrecked car with a car similar to what he had;  a safe car.  I am doing this to try and cover the shortfall between his (market value) insurance cover and the actual cost of his replacement car. As his mother, I am trying to do anything I can to help reduce his stress so he can concentrate fully on his recovery.
James was recently involved in a 100km head-on car collision and his car has been totally written off.
He's a 100% innocent victim of road trauma where a driver lost control into the gravel, overcorrected and slammed head-on into him.
He is a very lucky young man, the police have assured him that there was nothing he could have done to avoid the oncoming driver who unfortunately died at the scene.
James is currently in hospital for physical and mental road trauma rehabilitation, it would be wonderful if he didn't need to keep worrying about the additional costs and expenses of trying to replace his car and the anguish of this unexpected financial burden.
This certainly is a lot of stress, trauma and physical recovery for a young man who was not at fault.

The TAC has the most amazing beautiful people helping with his physical and mental recovery but of course, that does not help with getting him back into a safe car once he returns to work.

We do have car insurance but the market value offer will not buy him the same safe car that he once owned and I am seeking additional funds for him to put towards the shortfall purchase cost of a used car based purely on his safety and not his market value payout offer.
I gratefully appreciate any donation that will help James, I also totally respect that not everyone can or are in a position to help.
It would be wonderful if everyone could share this for me.
Thank you for taking the time to read our story and I hope that all your friends and family stay safe on the roads.
Special Thank you's to everyone for your kindness, messages and loving support that you have shown to James.

Thank you to all the amazing people who have so generously encouraged, sent messages, cards, visited and donated to James.
He is overwhelmed with gratitude for all the loving support that everyone has given.
He is now realising just how much everyone cares.
James is working very hard on his physical and mental rehabilitation and I am super proud of his dedication and commitment towards a full recovery.
It’s quite difficult for him to be away from friends, family, all his students and of course the sport he loves.
James is focussing on his physical and mental health and the rehabilitation treatments to get him back home and looking forward to what his future holds.
As his mother I am super proud of my beautiful sons James and Ben; they make my life complete, wholesome and happy.
It would be awesome if we could all keep sharing James’s go fund me fundraiser so when he gets back to his regular life he won’t be under financial burden to replace his car without sacrificing the safety features that saved his life during his traumatic accident.
To all the beautiful mothers, grandmothers and great grandmothers “happy Mother’s Day”
Being a mum is an incredible journey and a special bonding love that lasts forever.
Having lost my mum in January I know today is also a sad and difficult day for those of you who have angel Mother’s and I would like to send you all some love and understanding for this day
I would like to say thank you to my angel mum who I believe used her angel powers to save James when he needed saving.
Love and gratitude
Kathleen and James
