Jen @ Rustyzipper.com Needs Your Help

I recently was made aware that the owners of one of the oldest vintage clothing websites on the internet RUSTYZIPPER.com are facing some very tough times. Jen's husband, Rob, was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrigs Disease). Rob's prognosis, as with anyone diagnosed with ALS, is not great, and the two of them are raising 2 small children together while fighting this horrible disease.

Read more about Jen & Rob's battle HERE, and please do what you can to contribute to the fundraisers outlined there or donate to the fun they have set up to raise money for in-home health care workers to be able to help Rob and many others in their area HERE.

I don't know Jen or Rob but my heart goes out to them. I hope you will take time to do what you can, get involved, send a message of support or just shop at the Rusty Zipper. Her site was one of the only ones out there when I first got started selling vintage and she is an inspiration.

Hi Ang,
Thanks for posting this info. The cost of medical care and at-home care is so costly. Every donation counts and will go to good use.
