Stetson Wilson  SEATTLE, WA
Seattle's greatest treasures is in need.  In the early morning hours of Thursday, April 13th, as Sparkle Leigh was about to head home after performing at WTF Wednesdays at RPlace, she said her goodbyes and started to cross the street.  While in the crosswalk, she was struck by a car; the driver sped away and was quickly aprehended by Seattle Police Department. Sparkle sustained several injuries and was transported to Harborview Medical Center. She spent a day and a half in the hospital before being relased. Since her initial release Sparkle has been rushed back to the hospital twice for further observation and has had to have emergency dental work to fix teeth that were broken during the collision. 

She has now been released from the hospital and is resting to try to make a speedy recovery, but the medical costs she has incurred leave a cloud over her.  The doctors have estimated the costs of everything thus far at $15,000- $20,000 and there is possibly more to come. Also, she is a full time professional entertainer and that job doesn't often include sick leave, therefore, she is losing wages while she is trying to recover, and rent and other monthly bills will be due very soon. Doctors have suggested she not work for 2 to 3 weeks during recovery.

What is needed; your love and support for this phenomenal performer is always welcomed and appreciated, as are entertaining memes posted on her facebook page to help lift her spirits, she could use a good joke or a link to a happy song, but the most crucial thing she needs is your money, honey. Please donate anything you can, every donation will be appreciated more than you will ever know.  

This lovely person is always the first to be there for anyone who needs help with anything.  She would give you the wig off her head if you needed it and is always there with a pep talk anytime you're feeling down.  She is one of the most open, loving, and giving person in the world and it's our turn to give back to her. Let's make sure this accident doesn't effect her anymore than it already has.  

There will also be some fundraising shows hosted at the various venues you've seen Sparkle performing and more information will be posted here as the show details are finalized. In the meantime please donate what you can here, funds are needed imediately to help cover living and medical expenses. Sparkle has decided that if there is any extra money after replacing lost wages, incidental expenses as a result of hospital visits, treatment, and dental are paid for any remaining funds will be donated to a Seattle Based Charity directly benefiting homeless queer youth.

Get out all the dollar bills you would have already given her at the club and send them this way, your monitary support is very much appreciated.
