Hey guys,

We have a request from Hadesbestfriend to help out with this problem - this crazy expensive medical bill. We don’t need the full amount - the fund gives recipients between $150 and $300 generally. But our funds are really low right now. We have around $200 total in the fund, meaning if we give her everything we’ve got, we have no money left for future requests.

If you can help out, we would be very grateful!

I love this community and how wonderful you all are, and I love that we’ve had the opportunity to help each other so much, through the fund and emotionally. Thank you all for everything you’ve done for the fund over the last year and a half.

The GroupThink Emergency Fund was created in October 2013. It was first inspired when longtime member KillerMartinis made an offhanded comment about her electricity being turned off. I (greenheart) started a call for GT members to donate $5 a person to help out, and within 3 hours we’d collected 6 times the amount of the power bill. With the remainder, GT opted to create an emergency fund to help out its members in times of need.
