On Wednesday, March 20, our friend Andrew McGregor's beloved shop, chosen multiple times as one of Toronto's best New Age stores, had a fire that resulted in a total loss.
This emergency fund is to help "The Hermit's Lamp " rise from the ashes as quickly and easily as possible, and for Andrew's livelihood to be restored.
I am asking for members of the Tarot community, practitioners of every path, and beloved friends and family to chip in a little or a lot, to help.
Andrew has been such a gift of support for so many -- from his cancer fundraiser deck project, to his countless acts of thoughtfulness for the community.
It's time for us to step up for him.
Thanks and blessed be.

ps: Another update (3/25/19) -- After some wrangling with the GoFundMe rules, I am having to REVISE my explanation of how this funding is being handled. Because of their rules about international banking differences, I (Beth) will be collecting the money donated, then moving it to PayPal so Andrew can receive it.
To be sure that all is well, though, Andrew is now a "team member" of this account, so he is now joining me in the admin of this. Alas, this money managing does mean that there will be a delay of about a week or so before he can actually receive it, but as indicated before, he *will* get every penny you are so generously sharing!
Thank you again! The response has been incredible! ❤️
pps: I was informed by Christine Payne-Towler that this gorgeous Phoenix image is from her Tarot deck, Tarot of the Holy Light . She has kindly given me her permission to continue using it, as her own gift to Andrew. Thank you, Christine!
