Help Nora Brooks Recover from Fire!

Today, an apparent gas explosion leveled an apartment building, largely destroyed another and launched rubble and shards of glass across streets in the heart of Manhattan's trendy East Village on Thursday, injuring 19 people. Smoke could be seen and smelled for miles.

Nora and Matt Brooks need help from their communities at this time. They have lost everything. 

Matt has been a puppet builder for Henson for over 20 years and also worked for Laika as a set dresser. He lost power tools, cameras, professional lighting, hand tools and several valuable puppets.

They also lost all household goods and all of Nora's books. 

Please contribute what you can to this kind, artistic family!
