Please Hit Kirby’s Tip Jar

Posted on | September 21, 2019 | Comments Off on Please Hit Kirby’s Tip Jar

My older brother Kirby’s coverage under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) has expired and he is now officially unemployed. If you don’t know the backstory, Kirby is a 62-year-old Army veteran who works as commercial truck driver. He must undergo annual health checkups and, given his history of cardiovascular issues, this resulted in him getting caught in a bind where he was entirely willing to go back work, but the doctors would not authorize him to do so. He still had a job at that point, but could not work. This started the clock ticking under the FMLA and so now he’s unemployed, which means he no longer has health insurance. Earlier this week, I sent him some money via PayPal, but his expenses will be far more than I can afford to give, so I’m putting out the all-call. Whatever you can give Kirby — $5, $10, $20 — would be appreciated. He’s got a GoFundMe account, if you’d rather contribute that way.
