Krysta’s Karing Angel’s Donation Letter
“Save A Life, Don’t Drive Drunk”
On February 11th, 2010 Lil Krysta Rodriguez was killed by a drunk driver while on her way to get something to eat. Krysta was only 22 years old and had an entire future ahead of her; a future that ended tragically because of the choice made by a drunk driver. He was three times over the legal limit and was sentenced to 8 years in prison in April 2011. Because of the heartache and devastation we endured from this tragic event, our family and friends started Krystas Karing Angels. We cannot let Krysta’s death be another DWI statistic.
Krysta’s Karing Angel’s mission is to provide support to families affected by drunk driving and to take our DWI crash cars and our story to schools, universities and other events to allow people to see and hear about the devastating effects caused by driving drunk.
Krysta’s Karing Angel’s became a 501 (c) 3 in June of 2010. Since that time, we have provided emotional and financial assistance to 2 families and we have donated to two scholarship programs where the families lost a loved one to a drunk driver. We have attended over 33 events, including the Tomball Shattered lives program, the University of Houston’s alcohol and screening day and we are actively involved in the no refusal weekends. We are seeking your support to help us realize our goals of providing assistance to the families of drunk driving crash victims and to provide education through life changing visual aids of crash car fatalities caused by driving drunk.
We would greatly appreciate donations of any kind including monetary support, trucks, trailers, corporate sponsorships (which we would advertise at each of our events), raffle items and donated space to hold annual fundraisers benefitting Krysta’s Karing Angel’s. With your help, we can work to ease the pain that drunk driving causes and honor the memory of our beloved Lil’ Krysta and all other victims’ families that have been affected by this 100% preventable death. We love her and will miss her forever!
