I haz news!

Emergency Fund news!

In the last few weeks we've helped two people who wish to remain anonymous but are both long-standing and valuable members of our community (I believe both have been posters for several years).We sent $150 to one member to help pay for repairs to the member's home. We also sent $278 to a member to pay for a health insurance premium.

Also, MisfitToy has generously offered to sell this beautiful dress she is making to raise money for the fund.

That's all, folks! THANK YOU again and again for your contributions!

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.
