KWAKSTOCK 2017!! - "Kwaktopussy"

REVISED: On the heels of an epically fantastic Kwakstock, our attention has turned to the devastating flooding happening in Houston where I (Joan) grew up and consider my hometown. All donations given post-Kwakstock will go directly to people in Houston (pre-Kwakstock donations were $2750). My family is all safe, their homes escaped flooding, but numerous friends are not so fortunate and have lost pretty much everything. A few friends in particular already struggle with disabilities and the deplorable nature of Texas's social services and now they're likely to lose their homes in addition to their already destroyed vehicles. We're talking about several feet of water inside their homes. Compromised immune systems do not mix well with wet, moldy living conditions. This could become life-threatening well after the flooding is over. I'm asking you for your help in getting them into safe living conditions as soon as humanly possible. We're offering stainless steel pint mugs with this year's Kwakstock/Kwakstar design on them for $12 each locally or $15 is I need to ship them to you. Special deal, get a set of 6 for $50. Every cent after production cost goes directly to people I know that need it the most. In a matter of hours we've raised enough to order the minimum run of 72 cups and a few hundred dollars!! Keep it coming, my lovelies, and stay tuned, 3 different kwakstar t-shirt designs will be offered as well...probably tomorrow. Thank you so much!! Spread the word!

Follow up for GoFundMe officials: This is for specific close friends in dire need, not a general hurricane relief fundraiser. I don't care about tax implications or anything beyond getting my people and their children and pets into safe living conditions.
