THE HARD, HARD COPY:
It is with heavy heart that we bring some difficult news. It's never a good time for something like this to happen, but in this Holiday Season that is supposed to be filled with Joy, Peace and visions of sugarplums, it's even more difficult to see one of our own in serious crisis.
As this is being posted, Dusten Otey-- husband, father of two lovely daughters, and active member of our vaping community-- lies in critical condition in the wake of a serious motor collision. The good news is that he is now breathing on his own, but in a medically induced coma. The bad news is that there is a long road of recovery ahead, basic needs that must be met in that time and that the Oteys have lost their only means of transportation. His family needs our help to gather around them with love, prayers and tangible aid to get through this ordeal.
Please join the Facebook event, Dusten Otey Collection and Prayer Chain to learn more, stay informed of new updates or make a donation. As a vape community, this is how we really shine-- when we pull together to take care of our own. Let's let this family know they're loved, supported and not alone.
In addition to donations, plans are underway for a benefit auction to take place in January. Details will follow as they emerge, but it will be a great opportunity to help by either donating an item to be auctioned, or bidding on a device to help. We'll let you know how to help as soon as plans crystallize.
