Jeremy Thompson's mom and brother

My dear friend Jeremy Thompson's mother and brother lost everything in a fire in Mattapan a few days ago.  For those of you who don't know Jeremy he is an amazing human who gives so much everyday to his friends and his community.    (Here is a little snippit of J. to get a tiny picture of who he is:

He is a community organizer, activist, and and helper extraordinaire who has helped me, countless clients, and countless friends in a million ways.  Whether it is creating a path back for someone who has lost their way, brainstorming job prospects for someone returning to the community after jail, accompaniment during a desperate middle of the night search for someone who may be in trouble, or just a kind word on a rough day Jeremy is always there.   Now he needs our help.  

Several days ago his mom, Olivia Thompson, was pulled from her apartment in a fire.   His brother, Michael, who has been his mom's caretaker for two years (after she suffered a stroke)  had just gone to the store when an electrical fire erupted.  Neighbors tried to pull Ms. Thompson out of the house, but the smoke was too much.  Thankfully, the fire department arrived, and was able to rescue her.    She is still in the hospital, in intensive care, in stable but critical condition.  She woke up up yesterday, and everyone is cheering her on for a full recovery.  However, she and Michael lost everything in the fire.    Please contribute what you can to help them.
