People have been asking me how they can help. So many out of the area, so many that feel helpless and want to do something. We came up with some ideas:
Signing up to cook a meal or provide a meal gift certificate. https://www.lotsahelpinghands.com/c/622469/login/
Joanne Papadimitriou is organizing meal deliveries. Email her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
Give a small donation to the family fund that is quickly turning into a Christmas fund for the kids. If we make enough, we are shooting for laptops for all three. Shhhhh...Don't tell them. We want them to know that even if we can't change their reality, we can show them that strangers care about them.
So, if you want to help, help. If you can't afford to, send them your good thoughts. If you have any ideas, please email me at email@example.com.
