Corrie and Aren are friends of mine who both have a couple of problems to solve so they can be more productive members of society.
Video introduction on YouTube:
Corrie is a single mom and Navy/Marine veteran who has had a rough few years in the recession economy. She is a former personal trainer whose business went under a few years ago. She is now living in a veterans' housing project and is in an internship at the local Veterans' program. She is currently on a part-time salary but looking for a new job. Her problem is that she has some outstanding speeding tickets totallng about $1500, which need to be paid so she can get her driver's license back.
Aren has a similar problem, he has speeding tickets totaling about $1500 which he needs to resolve so he can buy a truck for construction work. He is also a certified dive instructor, chef, and has many other skills.
They are both very nice people who are working hard to make progress in their lives. We are asking for $8000 to take care of the tickets and get inexpensive transportation for them both.
