Mekita's car is in critical condition, thanks to an uninsured driver. She needs your help!

Good people,

I was recently involved in a car accident in which the driver who hit me was uninsured. My insurance plan is liability only, meaning if I got into an accident and it wasn't my fault, it would be the responsibility of the other person to cover my damages. Since the girl does not have insurance, I am basically tasked with raising $4,300 to cover the damages on my own.

I have filed a small claims case against the girl and her family, but I will not see them in court until May 10. Moreover, the maximum amount of money in damages I am eligible to get out of small claims court is $3,500, which would cover a majority of my damages but not all of them. Admittedly, it will be a challenge to get $3,500 out of this family, as they are refugees from Sudan and don't have many financial assets. It's going to be an uphill battle getting these damages paid in full.

I would greatly appreciate any contribution you can make to my cause, no matter how small (seriously, even $1 puts me that much closer to getting my car back). I have always been an ardent believer in karma and the power of paying it forward. Again, anything helps. Thank you so very much.
