Update on Timmy the injured Kitesurfer

The original post was sent to flamers paradise - :roll:

Here is the update on Timmy...the GoFundMe campaign raised $5k!! That is huge!

Happy New Year to everyone! Timmy has made great progress and is well on his way to a full recovery resting at home and regaining his strength. He has a doctor’s visit on the 13th and will know then when it’s safe to return to work.

Over the past two weeks the bills have come in and there have been many calls back and forth to his employer and insurance company. This was a bit of a wake-up call... unfortunately Timmy did not have short term disability insurance, meaning he will not be paid for the work he is missing, and his insurance deductible is $5,000.

Your kindness and generosity will go a long way in helping Timmy and at the very least his deductible will be paid for by your efforts. This is huge! And Timmy is incredibly grateful to everyone.

This week I’ll be transferring the GoFundMe page over to Timmy where he’ll be able to update you on his progress and he’ll start to draw down funds from the site.

I can’t possibly thank everyone enough for donating to this cause. People from all over the country stepped in to help – Amazing!!

Cheers,
Joe Sharron
