I don't usually ask for things like this, but a fellow writer whom I know from the Short Mystery Fiction Society is really hit the bottom of his resources. He and his family -- one parent on disability, the other recovering from a series of strokes, both kids with special needs -- are on the verge of being homeless.
Please help the Tipple Family.
They've been depending on the kindness of strangers (or at least online friends) for a while now. They don't need a lot; they aren't looking to pay off major medical bills or even fix the car. All it takes is a few people making small donations to pay the rent.
Or if you need to buy things from Amazon, you might consider entering the store through a link on Kevin's page so he can get a commission (which won't help immediately, but income down the line will always help in a case like this).
(Update -- they've made their rent for this month. Phew. Check out the front page of the above mentioned blog for more info.)
