Help Chad Rebuild from the Fire

Donation protected
On January 14th, around 3am, Chad's apartment building caught on fire (cause still under investigation). Luckily, no one was hurt but almost everything he owned was destroyed.

Chad's been in Florida for about a month to work while the hospitality industry is crippled up here in Boston due to COVID. In some ways, he's lucky he was, since he has a couple of suitcases of clothes with him. But his furniture, kitchen supplies, bedding, snowboard, most of his clothes, art and, most importantly, irreplaceable personal items like photographs were totally destroyed. 

2020 was hard enough with months upon months of furlough due to the pandemic. This is just a horrible piling-on for such a great guy. If you know Chad, you know he'd give you the shirt off his back or the last dollar in his pocket. It'd be great to show him the same kind of love as he tries to recover from such a devastating loss, after such a difficult year.

Thank you in advance - here's hoping 2021 starts looking up for all of us.
