Carmen & Vanessa's Fire Fund

Our dear and close friends Carmen and Vanessa's apartment burned down on September 29th.

Their neighboors started a fire pit on the second story balcony and when the place lit up, they ran and left it to burn. 

Vanessa and Carmen have lost everything, every piece of clothing, work computers, furniture, everything. Luckily their cat Sherlock somehow made it out alive, but all his toys are gone too.

It takes a lot to start over, so let's make sure they can at least have something to help them. 

They're currently homeless and couch surfing, so lets raise this money as quickly as possible.

Anything and everything helps.

Here's Sherlock right after being found.
