Jeremy is the kind of person who just gives with all his heart. He has helped bring the gaming community on the Big Island together, organizes the Gaming Track for HawaiiCon and helps raise money for Extra Life and other organizations.

Even in his day job as a paraprofessional he helps challenged adults to get through the day.

Everyone on the planet has heard about the eruption here on the Big Island by now, but it is the individual stories that are the most painful to endure.

He and his extended family including his mother in law Daisy Garton and Uncle Richard Johnson, rented a residence in Leilani for 3.5 years. Everything they owned was in that house, even had lots of collectables and games that he was saving to help pay for his kids college fund.

When the eruption started, residents in the immediate area were evacuated without a chance to remove anything. The house Jeremy was renting was only two blocks away from the eruption.  Adrienne, his wife, braved noxious fumes, to try to get as much stuff out, but really they lost too much.  

Jeremy had invested heavily in those game collectables and if you know anything about those, they can grow in value immensely. His were on track to pay for his kid's college education. All gone.

Since he was renting, he has no insurance. Everything lost is totally lost.

The family are homeless, moving from places to place on the goodwill of others, living on friend's couches and soon going to be camping out on my farm. 

They just need a little help in this terrible time.

Jeremy and his whole family has given so much to the island home.

Please give a little now just to give him a boost of hope for the immediate future.
