Two Deserving People Who Could Use Some Help

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 13.266% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

Regrettably, I don’t link to every GoFundMe campaign people create for personal life’s events; in a lot of cases I don’t actually know the people posting, and am uncertain of what they’d do with the money.  And in other cases, there’s a kind of “donation fatigue,” where if I ask y’all to shoot money at someone every week, it loses its effectiveness.
But here’s two people I know would use the money well, if you chose to give it to them.
The first is my friend Jeff, whose wife has cerebral palsy and a botched brain surgery that she’s recovering from.  Watching the Meyers go through what they’re enduring with my Goddaughter Rebecca, the one relief is that they’re financially well-off enough to pay the bills; Jeff and his wife, alas, are not, and they’re drowning in medical expenses.  As such, they’ve started a campaign to try to raise funds to help them keep their two kids happy and hopefully stop the searing pain that his wife feels. Well worth a few spare bucks, if you have it.
The other potentially life-saving campaign is a little more proactive: my friend Angel, who is a true badass of a woman, works in private security doing alarm responses – and she’d like a ballistics vest so if she gets got in the course of duty, she doesn’t, you know, die.  Unfortunately, most ballistics vests are fitted for men, and she needs something to go under her clothing to be plainclothes.  Donating a few dollars could keep someone I admire alive, so, you know, also worth a few spare bucks.
