Thursday night, a member of our community was walking home from taking a final exam when she was hit by a car. Her injuries are severe and it is doubtful she will ever walk again. Her hospital stat, convalescent care and the handicap-accessibility modifications that need to be made to her family's home are going to cost a fortune. It is times like these that we have an opportunity to pull together as a community and help out.
Giveforward.com is a website where groups can start fundraisers for medical expenses. Mariah's family has started a campaign and if you are interested in making a donation to help out one of our own, the page is right here.
If you aren't inclined to donate you can still help out. The page has several links for you to share the campaign with your social networks. Please share Mariah's story with your facebook friends and get the word out there. For those of us who have never met Mariah, she's a wonderful person and she didn't deserve this horrific accident. Please so what you can to help out. When one of us is in trouble, the entire community suffers and any little bit counts.
