Kirsten, 64, has lived in a (hot, dark) South Fla. home without electricity, ever since late June 2012 when Tropical Storm Debby tore out her power line.
She is in a wheelchair, on a fixed income, and can't afford the electrician needed to fix the damage to her home, damage that must be fixed before the electric company can turn her power back on.
(I'm withholding her last name, lest she become a victim of scammers, thieves or worse). She relies on the kindness of a neighbor for minor power needs. Her family helps her with expenses when they can, but this is beyond their means.
She needs our help. She lives without lights, without hot meals, without even a fan, in the South Florida heat.
Any money raised beyond what the electrician charges will go toward home repairs, and to her basic expenses.
