My name is Jacy Good and I am a survivor of a distracted driving crash that killed both my parents and left me with permanent injuries. I am writing to ask you to donate to We Save Lives.
I may have survived the crash but my injuries are a constant reminder of the results of a deadly choice the teenage driver made the day he killed my parents and injured me.
Before the crash, I was looking at a bright future. I had just graduated from college and was about to start a new job with Habitat for Humanity and a new chapter in my life. I had two loving parents, a wonderful boyfriend, Steve, and a new career. My parents were with me and we were on our way home from graduation when the crash occurred. One minute I was on top of the world and the next I was trapped in a devastating car wreck with both of my parents dead.
Distracted driving is a deadly choice that drivers make and We Save Lives joins forces with organizations around the country to promote anti-distracted driving legislation and education. We do this through:
My physical injuries improved but I will always suffer ongoing issues from the traumatic brain injury. My brain doesn’t function the way it used to and I cannot use my left arm and the lower part of my leg. But I can move and I can talk and I can speak out against distracted driving. And I do every chance I get. Steve and I both feel that distracted driving is completely preventable.
That is why I am asking you to give money to We Save Lives. We need your support to prevent this deadly tragedy from happening again and again.
Your donation is greatly appreciated and will be used to help us spread the word about distracted driving. You can either donate online, or send a check to us at: 4601 N Fairfax Dr, Suite 1200, Arlington VA 22203
Please have a safe holiday,
P.S. I believe We Save Lives is the best non-profit to donate to so we can end the preventable tragedies happening on our roads. Thank you again.
