Heather Sherpa had just graduated from nursing school this June and was now back home in the process of looking for a job. One day, as she was working out at the gym, a lonely, desperate, demented man walked into the gym, took out a gun and started randomly shooting all of the women in the room –I’m sure you heard about this. Heather was shot in the leg and a bullet actually hit her tooth –talk about a brush with death, right? Heather, the soon-to-be-nurse, in transition between college and her first job had no insurance to cover her gunshot wounds, rehabilitation and other medical costs, so her friends got together and held a car wash to help her pay for these expenses. Now a lot of Americans may think, “Ohhh, that’s so sweet,” but really, it’s completely ridiculous! Only in America do we accept the idea of holding a car wash, a bake sale, or a spaghetti dinner to help someone pay for an accident or cancer treatment.
