Please Donate! Susie's Car Was Wrecked
October 20, 2015

You may be wondering why Susie Madrak, our managing editor, has gone silent over the past couple of days. She was in a nasty car accident on Sunday involving a hit-and-run driver. She's going to be fine -- just bruises, muscle pain and a dislocated thumb -- but her car? Not so much.

She's trying to raise money to replace her car so she can still get around.

Can you help?

I loved my Subaru Forester and took really good care of it. But yesterday a large SUV rammed into me, the car went into a spin and I rammed into a concrete underpass. (The guy who hit me took off. No one got his plate number.)

The tow truck driver shook his head and said, "You're lucky you were driving a Subaru. It would have been a lot worse." (See? Just like the commercials: "They lived.")

My dependable little car is, as it were, a dead parrot. The force of the impact broke the rear axle. It's totaled.

And no, I did not have collision insurance. I can't afford those kinds of frills. (I'm a blogger, not a hedge fund manager.)

You can donate at her GoFundMe page, or PayPal:
