My friend David's San Francisco apartment caught fire. David, who operated his psychotherapy practice from his home office, is now homeless and officeless until next year when repairs on the building are expected to be complete. On top of that, despite the fact that no human was hurt, David's pet turtle Gus died in the fire.
Because he was between renter's insurance policies, almost all of his expenses, which are in the thousands, must come out of his own pocket. A couple of his friends set up a relief fund, and they are asking for contributions, no matter how modest (or how grand). They also want to remind folks that David has been a tireless supporter of fundraisers, campaign drives, trainings, demonstrations, bike-a-thons, walk-a-thons, and the like.
