Getting Dad back on the road
Organized by: Baylee Marie
Hi there! My name is Baylee :-) We all know the expression "Bad things happen to good people". Everyone has had it happen. This time, my family was hit harder than expected, I'm creating this in an effort to try and help my dad get back to work. He works in construction and has to travel to different states for his job. As he was making the almost 9 hr. drive back to see us after being gone for 3 weeks the transmission went out on his Tahoe. My uncle was going to help him purchase a replacement transmission so he could go back to work and avoid losing his job. While going to get it fixed his own truck's motor blew up. So instead of being able to help my dad get the Tahoe back on the road he had to go and find himself a replacement vehicle. So now we are staying with my uncle in his small apartment trying to make it until it is again safely running so my dad can get back on the road. My dad is a very proud man and doesn't like to ask for help. He is the strongest man I know. He isn't aware that I am creating this to try and help out. No, it's not something he would want me to do. But sometimes you have to set your pride aside and ask for help. So here I am asking that if anyone would be interested in helping me get our Tahoe back running so he can go back to work. I would be eternally grateful and humbled by the knowledge that there still such a thing as the kindness of strangers. So please, take a minute to read this, and if you wouldn't mind sharing it as well that would be a great help. Thank you again to everyone that takes the time to read this.
