Let's Get the Dawouds a Car!

$4,000 of $4,000 goal

Raised by 62 people in 15 months
Broaden the Dawoud family's life in Charlottesville, Virginia, with reliable transportation. A car that can safely hold Dad Fayez, Mom Asmaa, and kids Amer (6), Hamza (5) and Dana (2) will mean many things to this family. It will:

* Expand job opportunities for Fayez
* Enable Asmaa to attend English language classes
* Get Dana to preschool 3x a week this fall
* Give the Dawouds independence to arrange and attend medical, dental and social services appointments
* Enrich their family life by opening up access to parks, after-school programs, and community events

The Dawouds are supported by volunteers from the International Rescue Committee and International Neighbors .  We are teaching them how to budget for car insurance, repairs and gas. 

Fayez earned his Virginia drivers license in early 2018 and has saved $1,000 over 2017  for a car. Our combined  donations will help the family purchase one of these used, reliable, safe and family-friendly vehicles: Honda Pilot, Honda Odyssey, Subaru Outback.

Hi everyone,

After many hours searching online, we found a good car for the Dawouds, a 2010 Subaru Outback with ~101k miles on it.

We have sent payment, but it will take a few weeks for the car to arrive from the dealership in New Hampshire where we found it.

We'll be finalizing all the paperwork this week!

Progress!

And we're done: $4,000 raised by 62 people in seven days! Thank you, all.

Akash and I will tell the Dawouds the final number this week, and then we'll start looking for just the right Honda Odyssey/Pilot or Subaru Outback. Once one is purchased and insured, I'll share a photo of the Dawouds with their new-to-them car!
