Today I got an email from someone who plays in an RPG with [ profile] cruel_illusion. She wanted to send stuff to Destin, and another of Destin's friends had sent her my email and told her that I was organizing stuff for Destin.

So she's sending a package and some money for me to forward on to Destin...all the way from Germany.

Another person who only knows Destin through RPGs also sent me money.

And an LJ friend who doesn't know Destin at all except as a name that appears in my LJ sometimes sent me money to pass on to her as well.

This makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.


And for those of you who know her or know people who know her...feel free to pass my email along or direct them to my LJ. I'm planning on sending more down to her, and then when it gets closer to Christmas, I'm probably going to try to organize something for then too.

I mailed a package full of clothes and birthday presents for Adara today. I sent it priority so it should get there before Adara's birthday.

I also mailed the $55 I'd gotten from people to pass on to her. I sent a money order, so I know she'll be able to cash it.

At the moment, I have a box about half full of books and at least one more check on the way, so I'll be mailing out more stuff early next week if anyone still wants to get in on it.

Thanks so much to those of you who have helped. I really appreciate it and I know Destin does too.

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.
