From their email:

"On Saturday morning at 3am our house burnt down and my kids and I lost everything. This on top of my already very difficult situation has made life feel even more impossible. 
I desperately need all the help I can get right now because we have to now start over from scratch. We have nowhere to live right now and I can’t afford a hotel. 
If you are able to help out at all it would be a huge help. Every dollar counts right now. I’m trying to at least put together enough money to get us into a hotel for a few nights and/or some groceries and necessities since we lost everything in the fire."

this is a supertoot. any toot made from now is a subtoot of this supertoot

I love when I look up seemingly unrelated concepts and find someone who actually wrote an article tackling them in relation to each other
