We’re sure by now you have heard the terrible news that our friend Lindly Haunani was in a horrific auto accident in downtown Washington DC on her way to work. She was just back from ten days of color mixing fun at our studio and was getting back into the swing of things.
A four car pile-up sent her to GW trauma after being cut out of her demolished car. Now she has to mend a long list of broken bones. But Lindly is a fighter and will work hard doing her therapy to get back on her feet. She will need help for quite a while. The polymer community has leapt into action. Cynthia Tinapple and Joey Barnes have started a GoFundMe page that 588 people have already shared and over 250 people have already donated to.
We have put on our thinking caps and in the not too distant future, when the donations to the GFM page start to trail off, we are going to create an auction and call it “52 Weeks for Lindly”. We are getting donations and have started photographing the art and setting up a system to take bids. We will post to the Creative Journey Studios Facebook page as soon as we have it nailed down. It will be fun and a great way to keep a steady stream of money going to Lindly.
