Title: Re: On a serious note: A plea for help for a fellow musician January 2019 update
Post by: pianotuner steveo on January 27, 2019, 12:05:01 PM
Hi guys, I have an update to report, almost 5 years later.

Joe's widow is in serious financial trouble. (Joe was my drummer and songwriting partner from 1975-2014) If you could at least read her story and pass it along through Facebook, I would really appreciate it. ANY small donation, $5, $10, even $2. Any amount will help her out, but passing it along on Facebook may help more than anything. The more people that see this, the better.

Please go to GoFundMe.com, and search for the campaign called "please help my friend's widow replace her furnace"

The fundabilities fundraiser is long gone, this GoFundMe is a recent fundraiser that Candace isn't even aware of yet. She can't collect Joe's social security for another year, and if you read the story, you will see that her employer has cut her hours since minimum wage went up. She is trying to support herself on less than $150/week....

I urge everyone to please, at least look at the story and click the "share on Facebook" button.

Thank you,

Steveo

Can someone please at least share this on Facebook?
Only 3 people have so far.

Thanks

Thank you to those who have donated so far!  We have raised enough money to get her car repaired and inspected, repair her washing machine, and pay some back taxes. I did do some electrical work on her furnace, replaced the thermostat, and got it running at least, but it is older than she is. She still needs a furnace and money for medical bills. If anyone can donate any amount, even $2-$10, it will help.
This is a desperate situation and is not in any way a scam. This woman is like my sister. Please help in any way that you can. Even just clicking the share on Facebook button at the GoFundMe page.

Thanks!

Scratch that about the car. She took it to get repaired and inspected and it was too far rusted to repair. (23 years old) Body is separating from the chassis. She had to sell it for scrap.
That forced her to buy a newer car, with no money. She just can't catch a break. I don't know how she is going to make the payments.

Once again, if anyone could at least look at the GoFundMe and share it on Facebook, that would help.

Thanks
