Rodriguez Hernandez Family Fund

EDIT: My (Luc) employer, Metropolis Coffee Company in Chicago, IL, has agreed to donate 1lb. of our La Cordillera Blend coffee for anyone who donates $10 or more. (Yes, this includes those that have already donated.) So not only are you helping a family in need, you get free coffee roasted by me, Luc! To redeem your coffee (shipped directly to your house at no charge) simply send your address and preference of whole bean or ground (including what kind of grind you would like) to: [email redacted] and it will be roasted and shipped out pronto.

Our dear friend in Houston, Elizabeth Rodriguez Hernandez and her family, just lost everything in Hurricane Harvey. As we know, no one in Houston was told to evacuate. She woke up this morning to flood waters reaching her bedside, and she and her family rushed to escape. Elizabeth, her husband Carlos, her pets, and important documents made it out alright. The waters have since submerged their entire home.

Elizabeth is a cancer survivor who just recently has suffered another scare, and the results of her tests still have yet to come in. We can't even imagine how much stress and pain this is adding to an already insanely difficult situation.

As an avid collector of vinyl since childhod and a die hard Morrissey fan, she lost thousands upon thousands of tapes, records, CDs, memorabelia, and books that are not only extremely hard to replace, but meant the world to her.

She has been so giving to me, my wife, and all of her friends and it breaks our hearts to know how much she lost. This is not simply to replace what's now gone, some of which can never be replaced, but to show gratitude and communal support for someone that has always given so selflessly to others.

Should you wish to donate anything other than cash, please DM me on Facebook.

All proceeds raised in this campaign will go directly to Elizabeth herself. No one else will have access to this money so no need to worry about anything shady.
