You think you got it bad? Think again.

Yea, your life blows: Your pile of a car has a slow leak in the driver-side front tire, which you have to annoyingly fill like, every other day. How lame.

It's super hot outside, and you really want a drink, but the ice maker in your fridge is broken, and you have to drive all the way across the street to get ice for your whiskey, but first you have to put on pants, and then fill your god damn tire before you can even leave the house. I know, life blows. But that ain't shit.

Amanda, (pictured left) a single mother or twins, and good friend of Michael Gracie had half of her face torn off in a freak accident when she fainted in her kitchen.

Now, on top of trying to support her children, she has huge medical bills. Yea, that probably dwarfs what you got going on, dontcha think? If it doesn't, I am very, very sorry.

Now look, I know times are tough for everyone, especially a freelance photographer like myself. But you know what I did today? I ate some ramen noodles instead of Burger King, and donated the saved $5. You may say, "well shit dude, break out the band she's saved!" But it's something, right?

Donations can be made here through PayPal. It's super easy. If you don't have PayPal, get someone to help lift off the rock that you have been hiding under. Seriously.

Or if you would like to have a chance to get some awesomeness for your help, go bid on a one-of-a-kind lanyard over at Gracie's site. It's a win-win no-brainer! All donations and the money from the winning lanyard bidder go directly to help Amanda.

-Alex who would just like you to help him help you help a person in need.
