Jessica Wick's Bereavement Fund

$4,010 of $3,500 goal

Created July 15, 2018

Our dear friend Jessica Wick recently lost her father. She is an artist, writer, editor, poet, who supplements her income as a bookseller in  a charming bookshop in her small town. She had to fly across the country immediately to settle his affairs, and will be missing a week of work, with many bills coming due and many unforeseen expenses. She could really use our help to make ends meet right now. 

We've itemized some of her expenses here: 
Bereavement flight: $500
Death certificate: $21
Funeral expenses: $2300
Car rental:$600
Missed week of work: $500

We're not asking for the full amount itemized here, nor do we know if these arrangements will necessitate missing more than one week of work. But we want to help as much as we can.

This is an emergency. Jess is on a flight right now, and she will need the funds as soon as possible.

What else you can do: Please keep Jess in your thoughts. She'll be back in a few weeks, and is strengthened by your support.

Thank you so much, dear friends and community.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Sometime while I was sleeping, we made it to $3500 to help Jess. We also got news that the Book Industry Charitable Foundation will issue a matching grant for $2000. (

While the funeral expenses are more extreme than I had calculated from Internet research, this will go a long way toward relief for the family. Thank you so very very much.
