Okay, [ profile] shira and I were talking, and we've
decided that we're going to collect money to send to [ profile] cruel_illusion to help her recover from Katrina.

I definitely encourage people to donate to general relief funds or
donate goods to organizations that are collecting them and I'm
going to do that too, but since I know Destin personally, I want to
help her out.

I'm going to collect money and then send her a money order. She
can't access her bank accounts at the moment and doesn't know how
long it will be before she can, but she'll be able to cash a money
order at any bank without a fee. I think that if several people do
$5 or $10 each, we can do a decent amount easily.

I'm also collecting things or money for Adara's birthday presents.
She will be 7 on September 10. She wears a size 10 in girls. I know
she did gymnastics, I'm not sure what else, but I'm guessing that
most things a typical 7 year old girl would like will be safe. I
know this is really important to Destin; I paypal'd her some money
last night and her response was that she could at least get Adara
something for her birthday.

Donations can be paypal'd or mailed to me. The paypal email is
nessabutterfly80(at)gmail(dot)com and my address is:
Vanessa Lee
PO Box 62354
Cincinnati, OH 45262-0354

I promise, anything sent will go straight to Destin.

And if you don't know her and/or want to donate elsewhere, that's
great too. I just thought I'd mention it here.

Have you spoken with her? Some friends on JF have stuff to send her, but I'm not sure how best to get in touch with her to find out where to send it. I want to send money too, but I can't get you anything until Friday. Is that too late? I want to send some of my old toys and books to Adara, but I have no idea what sort of things 7-year-olds like to play with or read.

I've emailed her and she sent me the address of where she's staying at the moment.

And no, Friday won't be too late. I'm going to try to collect stuff over the weekend and sent it out on Tuesday. And if I get more after that, I'll send it again.

I'm going to cross post this to my JF. If you want to direct people there, I'm happy to collect stuff, or people can email her to get her address.

As far as stuff for Adara, my co-worker who has two girls around her age suggested hair and play makeup things, bratz dolls, crafty stuff (which would be good since she's away from her friends), things like that. I'm sure she'd also appreciate clothes.

I've emailed her now. And good. I want to send something, I just literally have nothing to send until I get paid on Friday. And I hate that I won't be able to send as much as I want to, but at least I can send $20 or so.

I'll look around for stuff for Adara. I've got some stuff from my childhood, but I have no idea if it's right for a 7-year-old or if a little girl nowawdays would even like the same things I liked as a kid.

Have you asked her about it? I was going to email and ask if I could help out with some money but didn't want to seem rude.

Yes, I did talk to her about it. I emailed her last night.

She's mostly concerned about stuff for the kidlet but I know other stuff would be appreciated too.

Of course you know I'm in. And will pimp this on my journal, for anyone that wants to help someone in the fandom, whether they know them or not, simply from the aspect that "we" know her. I'll PP you something this weekend.

I'm going to mention it to some people, as well as post the synopsis of what's going on in my LJ entry tonight. Also, I'm going to give a call to some people back home and see what they can do...

And yeah, you ARE great for doing this! :)

Thanks so much. I made this entry public, so if you want to link to it, you can. I really appreciate it and I know Destin and Adara will too.
