Katrina

A lot of you know my friend Jonathan. Heck, a few years ago, a few of you helped us out tremendously when the house we shared (with a third roomie) burnt down. After the house fire, Jonathan knocked around Philly for a few years, and then moved to New Orleans.

So, for the second time in his life, he's had a home destroyed, leaving him with almost nothing. I've heard from him, and know that he's ok, and staying at his Dad's place in Dallas. I'd like to put some money, furniture, and stuff like that together to send to him. Of course, the good news is that once he has his house destroyed by earthquake and tornado, he'll have all the elements dealt with. The fifth house - the fifth house will stand forever!

Please drop me a line if you're willing to help. Also, some of my old furniture in storage in Philly is going to be donated to Katrina survivors who are relocating there. If you're in the Philly area and want to know where you can make donations, like of old couches, bookshelves, lamps, whatever - let me know and I'll send you the info.

count me in!!
I have some furniture that I dont really need.. I just don;'t want to throw it out.. I could afford to buy new stuff I guess when (if) I ever get my own place.. could be another year anyway.. hate to waste that stuff if someone could really use it

I chatted with filthy mike about helping Jonathan... whatever way you guys decide I'm in on that too. I just don't like to donate to "organizations" I'd rather help out a friend personally.

and if we decide to get him out here (east coast) for MD renn faire, then that would be a better way to spend some of my money than giving it to people I don't know
(does that sound fucked up?)

thanks for posting this, I was wondering... please keep me informed on everything you know...

I had completely forgotten about Jonathan! We did drinks last year down off of Bourbon street. Please send him my best regards if you guys e-mail again.

That poor man. Jeez.

I will contribute if someone here is organizing something. God knows we have too much "stuff".
