Helping Those Who Help Others

These two amazing people, Dave "Jack Mirth" Olsher and Lisa "Trinket" Oberg, finally have the opportunity to move from their inner-city Baltimore neighborhood to a nicer place, but they need our help with the moving costs.

If you're reading this, odds are these folks have done something nice for you.  Whether it's through the Maryland Renaissance Festival, Faerie Fest, animal rescue, sideshow, music, costuming, or the fantasy/science-fiction/gaming worlds, their talents, time, and generosity have been deeply felt. They have done so much for so many, without thought of recognition or reward, and their modesty is well known.

Although they speak jokingly of living in their "Hobbit hole", they have always wanted a place with actual windows... that open. Among other things that some of us take for granted, Lisa would love to tend a garden that doesn't produce crack pipes and hypodermic needles, and David would like a room large enough for him and a few of his friends to sit around a table together and socialize. Their cats could use some extra space, too.

At last everything is right for them to make a move, but the cost can be daunting. That's why some of us who love these folks so dearly are setting up this fund. We want to help these people who have helped, entertained, supported, and been there for us now and in the past.

Any amount you can spare will be valuable to them as they start this new chapter in their lives.
