And just to say: I hate that we don't have enough support or political will in this country to build a real safety net for everyone, but right now, this family needs help, so: Gofundme.
Gofundme wants to know:
Who I am: Samantha Pinto, an Associate Prof. at Georgetown University
How I know this family: My friend is a former colleague of mine and a close friend.
How the funds will be used: Housing costs-- hotels and then, eventually, a security deposit on a new place; furniture; a car to replace the one they lost; necessities for the family while they try to get back to work in Houston.
How the funds will get to them: They have requested that I withdrawal the funds and send it to them via PayPal, since the requirements for direct deposit from gofundme are not possible for them to fulfill at the moment.
