Manu's Equipment Replacement Fund

Hello friends,

My partner Manuel was recently mugged in downtown Sao Paulo. As well as copping some serious injuries, he also lost his laptop, phone and other equipment! It's so terrible. As Manu would say, 'aiai'....

Anyway, I feel pretty useless being all the way back in Australia, but I thought I'd try to get together some funds towards replacing his equipment (mainly to help him get a new laptop, which, as you can imagine, is essential for his work). If any of you feel like donating any amount at all, I'm sure it would mean a lot to Manu (and me). 

I was going to just link this to my PayPal, and I can transfer whatever is raised to him. I won't tell him who donated (or of course, how much), unless you would like me to.

Thanks so much for reading. It would be amazing if some of you could help out! Of course, please spread the word if I'm forgetting anyone here.

Hope everyone else is well (by comparison at least).
