It’s been an absolutely exhausting trial of a year-plus for everyone I know. My households shared a bubble for 14 months of lockdown, which we are cautiously emerging from one step at a time. Everyone I know is facing some kind of personal trial or other, myself absolutely included.
I want to ask your help with one of them, today, please – if you can’t contribute directly, at least share the link along:
My friend Nicole and I, along with others in Treebridge coven, helped a mutual friend out of an abusive situation. It was handled on very short notice. I handled much of the logistical wrangling, while Nicole dove directly into the fray, hopping on a plane to collect our friend and drive her and her two cats across several states to live in the safer place we found for her.
Nicole floated the cost of that sudden, expensive move. We’d originally planned to do some crowdfunding to help our friend, but things changed and we had to move our timetable up abruptly.
Now Nicole is facing potential financial crises of their own, because of those expenses they so generously floated! It’s time for us as a community to step back up to share that burden around – what is carried by many burdens few!
If you have even a few dollars you can pass Nicole’s way, we’d be very grateful. We’d rather see dozens of people contribute a few dollars each than have any one person expect to carry the whole expense. If you can’t, we entirely understand, but please do pass the link along to others who maybe can. We’re a big community, and we can and do take care of each other when the need arises!
Thank you, all!
