Crescent Dragonwagon:  writer, teacher, cook, caretaker, daughter, partner, and sister to so many in her large and extended family.  She needs our support.  Recently, her home in Vermont was damaged to the point of being unlivable and is currently under repairs.  She's in New York working to clean out the home of her recently deceased mother, Charlotte Zolotow.  Her partner recently committed suicide, adding to the emotional burdens she's facing right now.

While time and love are the answers to many of the challenges she faces right now, money can also help her keep going. We are starting this fund me page so that we can help her out.    Specifically, we hope that funds raised here will help Crescent with the worry of travel and habitation over the next few weeks.

Hello Everyone!

I know CD wants to be able to respond to each one of you. In time, she will hopefully be able to thank each one of you individually. The love that you've provided and the love that surrounds her is truly remarkable.

You have made a tremendous impact on our dear Dragon's life, financially and, of course, emotionally. Because you took the time to 'do' something by sending your hard earned dollars to show your love, she has benefited in countless ways.

Here are just some of the things your dollars immediately went towards:
1) Paying the packers/movers in cash to move out of Charlotte's house on a Sunday (a day you will be hard pressed to find movers willing to work unless you offer them cash).
2) A lovely hotel/estate in Hastings nearby Charlotte's home, so that she could continue packing up and readying Charlotte's home for sale.
3) A temporary apartment in Hastings for the month of April, as her home in Vermont continues to be under renovation until likely May.
4) Nurturing massage treatments and dining out so she doesn't have to face the kitchen alone.
5) Gas to make the long drive to and from Vermont to keep David's therapy appointment that he wasn't able to keep.
6) Peace of mind that she has a support system in place who is looking after her from all over the country.

With all my love and appreciation for all you've done for my friend and mentor,

Dida Gazoli

Crescent posted this on her FB page today: Speaking of which: I know many of you have asked . . .for my address, so you can send condolence cards. May I ask you please to send messages by email or here [her FB wall] instead?

Your thoughts and wishes for me are wholeheartedly welcome and deeply appreciated and give much comfort. I don't need them on paper: I have many cards still from Charlotte and too much stuff, particularly paper that is filled with meaningful words, already... it just overwhelms me.

You have inspired me with your writing since I was a child, and getting to know you via internet these past few years have been lovely. I feel so much for your loss, and appreciate your insight thru all of it. Glad to be able to give back to you, beautiful lady!
