REAL ONE: Gandhi Mahal Revival Fundraiser

My name is Lucy Kegley and I am a close friend of Hafsa's, the daughter of the owner. I am making this fundraiser on behalf of Hafsa, her family, and Gandhi Mahal. Below is the statement from Hafsa, including how the money will be spent. I will be updating this page whenever I withdraw and send the money directly to Gandhi Mahal. 

"I’m Hafsa Islam - daughter of Ruhel Islam.  We’ve had a pretty exhausting week.  As you have likely heard, our restaurant, Gandhi Mahal burned down on Thursday night following 3 days of protests at the nearby 3rd precinct.  We were not going to set up a go fund me page, but realize that a number of the things we lost are not able to be replaced by insurance.  When we rebuild we want to be able to replace our aquaponics system in the basement.  And we want to be able to continue to provide a community space for people to gather.  If you donate here, we will also use the funds to make food to support others in our community during this challenging time.  We are looking into a temporary kitchen so that we can continue to provide take out food.

Thanks for your outpouring of support.  And for continuing to demand justice for George Floyd."
