As you probably know, our friend MaryKatherine has had a hell of a year. On Monday, her house was ransacked and robbed, and she lost a lot, including all the money she needed to move herself and her daughters in a few weeks and her computer, which provides a much-needed source of income in the form of online teaching. I don't know MaryKatherine very well, but I know that she is really, really strong. She's not the kind of person to ask for help, I don't think. In fact, she hasn't asked for any help. Which is why I'm doing it.
I have copied this from her Facebook page:
"Just to recap: a rat infestation. A crapped out car. A baby who needs surgery the day after I have to move (how, since my moving money got stolen, is to be determined). A bank account that has been hacked TWICE in the last two months. A house break in that robbed me of my only computer for online teaching, my jewelry, and all but $40 of my money for the rest of the month."
If I lived near MaryKatherine, I would want to give her a hug, ask her what I could do to help her and her daughters out. I'm sure you would want to do the same. I imagine that if I were in MaryKatherine's position, nothing could restore my faith in humanity more than learning that friends, loved ones, and even little-known acquaintances had come together and pitched in a few dollars--$5, $15, $50--to make my life a little easier.
Some of us have had the pleasure of studying under Erin McGraw at OSU. It's like she says: "Many hands make light work."
Won't you help me show MaryKatherine that she is loved and supported, even when everything else has gone to sh*t?
