Help Elm & Siblings Move!

**From the beneficiary:
Hello there, to those of you who are reading this.
I unfortunately cannot give my real name due to safety reasons, so call me Elm (like the tree or Professor).
My siblings and I need help. Due to our home situation, we are having to quickly move out without support at all. We literally need everything, from beds to silverware. Inevitably there will be things I’ve probably forgotten, but these are the basics.
Below you will find what the funds will be used for. Any little bit helps. Even sharing this fundraiser is a great help.
Thank you for your support. My siblings and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts. ❤

**From the fundraising team:
Hi, my name's Blue (though some may know me as Jack). My friends Elm & Siblings are currently living in an unsafe and unhealthy environment; in order to be safe and healthy, they are making the difficult decision to move out and into a place of their very own. I can personally vouch for all of them; they need the financial assistance very badly and urgently. If you know me, and are able to make a donation of any of the items on this list, please let me know, and I can arrange for you to drop the items off at my residence. Rest assured your donations will be passed on to Elm & Siblings. Please ensure that any items are clean, safe, and from a home that is bug- & COVID-free.

Your generosity is MORE than appreciated during this difficult time. I will be deducting donations from the cost as they are received.
