Help a Green Day fan in need

By Alissa / May. 21, 2016 /
Hello readers! A fellow Green Day fan needs your help.

Mar, a longtime Green Day Community member (and one of my close friends), recently informed us that her father, Rick, suffered a terrible injury on April 30. While in California, he fell and broke his neck, leaving him partially paralyzed. He's endured two surgeries and now their family's health insurance won't cover the cost of an air ambulance — $18,000 (USD) — to transport him home to Ohio for rehabilitation, so he can regain his strength and movement.

If Mar's family doesn't collect this money before Rick is discharged from the hospital in California, it's likely he'll be stuck in one of their rehabilitation centers alone, 2,300 miles away, without his loved ones supervising his care and recovery. That's why she's turned to crowdfunding to collect the cash quickly.

After a day on GoFundMe, Mar and her family have collected $5,200 and are still $12,800 shy of their goal. Please consider donating to this great family. Every dollar helps.

And if you can't help with a donation, please spread the word by sharing this GoFundMe page: www.gofundme.com/getrickpiehome — thank you!
