At the Celebration of Joe's life a few of us talked about how we wanted to do whatever we could to support Jean, Hannah, Maria and Brandon. We can't ease the immense pain of their grief but we could take away some of the immediate financial stress. The idea is that together we could cover the rent for 5 months, giving the gift of not having to worry about moving right now. The rent is $2000/month, so we would be looking to raise $10,000.
We invite anyone who is interested to be a part of this effort. Please feel free to share this widely with others who might like to be supportive in this way. A gift at any level or at any time over the next few months is wonderful, as we know that so many of you have already helped financially and continue to be supportive in a myriad of other ways.
You can make a gift through GoFundMe (GoFundMe deducts 8% from your donation). If you prefer, you also can send a check directly to Jean. Please let Marcie know about checks—[email redacted]— so that she can track progress toward our goal (Marcie can also give you Jean’s address).
We have talked with Jean about this idea and she was (in her words) "blown away." We can't give Jean, Hannah, Maria and Brandon what they most want—but we can give them a little more breathing room to grieve and heal.
In love and friendship,
Sara, Renata, Marcie, Jenn and Cici
