Hey all

Local small biz owner Sav had a horrific accident last week resulting in burns over 50% of his body.  Mutual friend of ours Chuck Creacy set this up - it's all legit.

Something like this can destroy a small business, and Sav's got two on opposite corners down near UK's campus (which people should totally check out, great food and great ice cream).

Even $5 can make a huge difference if enough people donate.  On the off chance it goes over $50k, every extra bit helps - Sav is likely out for the next six months at best.  Thanks everyone!

Important question......

Is the peanut sauce good? Should I order a side of it?

/someone had to do it. I'll donate.
 
2014-06-11 02:56:15 PM  
that is horrific, it's like something you do to people who are trying to storm your castle.
 
2014-06-11 02:57:09 PM  
That is one of the most horrifying tales of injury I have ever heard.

While I can't donate now, I'll definitely support his business next time I'm down in Lex (Frogdice meetups and whatnot).
 
2014-06-11 03:05:24 PM  
To your recovery, sir.

Well, peanut oil in KY is an accident waiting to happen.

/OUCH

Get well soon.

When life hands you peanut oil........make French fries?
 
2014-06-11 03:07:18 PM  
I went down there today.  Lunch line was out the door.  I didnt eat but I gave.  They have some really great, tasty West African fare.  Lamb/beef, spices, rice, and some great salads.

Thanks for the shoutout, Drew.  I got an email from CD Central about it too.  it will be on our local news tonight too.  i think the community is going to rally quite well with Fark's help.

Owners of Lexington businesses are known to be drunkards so no insurance company will touch them.

I've got this fiver that's been sitting here on my desk. I can't decide if I should donate or join TotalFark.
 
2014-06-11 03:13:00 PM  
When I first read the headline I thought - well, this is going to get kinky.

The word 'hot' needed to be in there to induce the cringe worthy sympathy pain this deserves.

Are the Shriner's hospitals helping out?  They do great work.
 
2014-06-11 03:13:30 PM  
Having worked in a burn clinic I would like to point out that oil burns are by far the most painful soft of injury by a large margin.  imagine what food looks like before and after going through a deep fryer.

This man needs help.

You know... Maybe Drew could run a special in which he will donate $10 for every TF sign up this week.
 
2014-06-11 03:14:06 PM  
20 gallons?

That's 154ish pounds of hot oil.

I actually think he does. This is more for out of pocket expenses and to help over the next 6 months or so while he is out of commission, I believe.
 
2014-06-11 03:19:50 PM  
Besides serving great, unique food, Sav is one of the kindest, most genuine people I have ever encountered. This accident is just terrible and I feel so badly for him and his family. The outpouring of love from the people of Lexington is merely a reflection of the love Sav has brought to this community. I know non-Lexington Farkers probably don't know Sav, but any little bit to help him would certainly not be wasted. The guy is a human being's human being. Can't wait for him to heal, chow down on some peanut goat, and see that signature smile.

I don't think Bruce wayne would host another fund raiser for Harvey Dent after the whole two-face thing...


Hope the guy heals up soon.
 
2014-06-11 03:24:38 PM  
No snark. That's very bad. Drew, face included in the burns? Doesn't make the rest of the burns easier, but clothing can cover scars...shiat. I hope that didn't sound as terrible as I think it might.

Lex Ky is also Superman's Korean arch-nemesis.
 
2014-06-11 03:26:33 PM  
Even a 5 gallon pot of hot oil would be a bit of a chore, 20 gallons? He was carrying this in his arms? Was he manning the murder holes or something?

FTA: A fund established by Business Lexington's parent company Smiley Pete Publishing through the site GiveForward.com is aiming to raise money for Savanè over the next few months to assist him in his recovery. While he does have health insurance, the campaign aims to help with additional medical costs as well as the out-of-pocket expense of keeping Sav's Grill and Sav's Chill in business, as well as helping the Savanè family as time is split between their three small businesses during Sav's recovery.

I haven't been to Sal's in forever, but everything you say is gospel

As the owner of the business, I hope the man didn't opt out of his workmen's comp insurance.
 
2014-06-11 03:34:08 PM  
Hey Drew, do me a favor and stick "boiling" up there in the headline. Because when I read it the first time, I was thinking maybe he threw his back out or something. Sucks, but it happens. He'll be fine.

Then I clicked on TFA and it was a whole different story. HOLY SHIAT I can't even imagine. I burned the back of my hand with some hot grease and got a couple of blisters and I was a big whiny baby about it. Burns suck.

I am shocked, just shocked, that a Farker didn't RTFA!

Accident/disability insurance helps a ton when you can't work at your job.

When you are the owner/proprietor of said workplace - it kinda makes it so that once you are able to work again, there's no business there anymore to work AT.  That would royally suck.  I'm glad to hear that the community seems to be helping out, sounds like a pretty cool family.

About 150 pounds of hot oil.

I deal with 5 gallons every week supporting a bike night at a local American Legion.  Been burned - very minor - too many times to count.

Since this is all "legit" can you post the license number and federal tax ID making it legal for you to solicit donations?  If you don't have those and make them available, it's not legit.

By the way 20 gals of any water based liquid would probably be around 160+ pounds .
 
2014-06-11 03:42:46 PM  
Damn, poor man.  One of the most painful recovery I've seen.  (mom in law got burned a while back)  The burn recovery victims are in serious pain for a long time.  The burn ward she was in, and the other burn victims, it was very hard to see. I feel for this man and what he now has to go thru.  Best wishes all around.
 
2014-06-11 03:44:33 PM  
I am shocked at the lack of Scotland, PA references in this thread.

I am also shocked by an $8.40 transaction fee to donate. But it also looks like the rest of you got this, so I guess I'll wait for the next one. (Unless I get home tonight and get all guilty and stuff.)

I think he means it's legit in that it's going to go to Sal. Nothing through that website is tax-deductible.
