We Were the Victims of a Hit & Run Accident & Need Help Repairing Our Vehicle Please!

My Story:

I'm a married mother, and I have two beautiful daughters who are 13 and 5 years old. My oldest is a very talented visual artist, and my youngest just started kindergarten and wants to follow in the footsteps of her older sister. They are both the light of mine and my husband's life, and we're so incredibly proud of them both. More than anything else, my husband and I just love to spend time at home as a family.

I work full time as a PCT in our community hospital, and my husband works in a restaurant. Typically, we earn enough to get by from month to month, but I was involved in a hit and run accident last month that has caused us a lot of problems. Thankfully, aside from minor injuries, I was alright, but the other driver nearly totaled our new minivan and then ran off. We've been struggling since then because our insurance company has been very difficult to deal with. We have to meet a huge deductible before we're able to receive any assistance from them at all, and that's in spite of the fact that the accident was a hit and run and completely not our fault. Our van is sitting in a repair shop right now, and we can't afford the deductible on our own, so we're very humbly asking for assistance.

Until we're able to afford the deductible, our van is going to continue to sit I the repair shop. It's our only means of transportation, so we're already having a very hard time when it comes to getting to work and getting our children to school. I'm afraid that this short-term crisis will quickly turn into a long-term one unless we can get our vehicle repaired soon. If we're able to receive this assistance, it will truly save my family from falling further into a bad situation. My family very much believes in paying it forward, as we are devout Christians, and so I promise that we will return the generosity and kindness that we are shown.
