Help get Jillian stateside

Most of y'all have probably already heard/read by now but it looks like Maria is about to throw a direct hit at Puerto Rico as a Category 4 and the odds are that it's going to be pretty terrible. A few Fall '17 squirrels are trying to wrangle a little help to keep one of our own safe and dry.

We're looking for some help getting Jillian Oliveras off the island and safely to the contiguous 48 where she can pull shifts and earn a living until things stabilize in Puerto Rico. Things are already really tight in P.R. as quite a few folks were out of work post-Irma so any and all help is appreciated. It's ~$700 for a flight out and probably about the same back so we're trying to cobble together ~$1,500 so that we can cover full travel expenses. I know a lot of us are struggling after a really gnarly hurricane season but if you can spare a few dollars every little bit helps.

If you have any questions or any other ideas about how to help in the short term feel free to shoot over a note. Love y'all and take care of each other!
