One Shot SafetyNet: Work Relief Fund

The spread of the coronavirus/COVID-19 has caused the recent temporary closure of many places of business and employment. Although some members of the One Shot Podcast Network are able to continue their day jobs by working from home remotely during this time of self-isolation and social distancing, there are a few folx in the company who are unfortunately completely out of work until this stage of flattening the virus curve is over.

Specifically right now Aly Grauer, Drew Mierzejewski, Aaron Catano-Saez and Bianca Zelda are hurting in particular:

-Aly and Drew live in Orlando, FL and work several jobs each - all within the major theme parks and tourist attractions in their region. Since even Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, and Medieval Times are closed during this period (just to name a few), Aly and Drew are in need of assistance getting through the next month or so.

-Aaron lives in New York City where he works as an actor and server in the restaurant industry. With the closure of public dining places under the orders of NYC local government, Aaron is in need of support to stay on top of things until the businesses are able to reopen.

-Bianca plays Mépris on The Broadswords podcast and like Aaron above, their work is primarily centered around serving in restaurants. Bianca needs some help to make sure they can get through this time while their regular restaurants are closed. Any and all help will be useful!

While many of the other OSN podcasters are able to make ends meet for now, there's no telling yet how long this period may go on, or whether things may come up unexpectedly to cause other podcasters in the Network to ask for help. 

For the time being, we are setting the goal at $8000 to support Bianca, Aaron, Drew, Aly, and others within the network in this difficult time without work. Your generosity can help them afford groceries, pay bills, and make ends meet for the next month or so.
