I'm aware of how ridiculous this is, i mean who asks for money for a laptop for their aunt, right? Please take a second to hear me out. Well, my aunt Mary moved here about a year ago to live with my mother after her new husband had passed because that's what sisters do. Things were going well, until she had to have surgery on both of her knees about 2 months ago, so she spends alot of time in her apartment and when she does get out, it's usually only too see doctors about more issues or to help with current ones. Again, you're probably thinking that this is still a bit ridiculous, but pleast keep reading. Last christmas after she had just moved up here, my wife and I were struggling pretty bad with money for christmas (we have 2 children) and without thinking twice about it, this wonderful woman (albeit a bad decision) got a credit card, without anyones knowledge and took us all shopping individually without anyone else knowing (until after christmas) and made the most wonderful, stressfree christmas we have ever had. At the time she was working part time as an elderly caregiver (even though she is over 60 herself) and had planned on paying the debt off, however soon after christmas she no longer had work, ran into a number of physical problems and is currently disabled and recovering from multiple surgeries.
So basically, my aunt Mary, is an incredible, caring, and giving person, who has helped my family a great deal and has neither asked for anything or complained about her debt, which we created. What i would like to do for her is simple, i would like to surprise her with a laptop for christmas and have her be as excited as we were last year. She is currently using an old pc, which is extending a keyboard to her bed. She doesn't need anything fancy, just the ability to communicate to family on facebook etc. I have already raised $85 from selling some stuff of mine, but I simply cannot afford to buy a laptop for her, so i've turned to this community.
I love this woman, she is like a second mother to me, and i just want to see her excited about something or anything.
I can offer graphic design assistance to any donator, i know its not much, but its all i can do.

Thank you and god bless.
