Writer and publisher Vera Nazarian has been terribly affected by these difficult economic times and by some personal emergencies. She and her ailing mother are now facing foreclosure.
Now folks are joining together to try to help her.
I can testify to the fact that Vera is tremendously diligent and immensely generous. Nobody should have to go through what she's going through in what we're told is the richest country in the world.
If you can send money, if you have items you can donate to auction or sell, etc., please do. I'll post more info as it becomes available.
Update 12/8: And it is done! The total amount past due on Vera's mortgage was raised in 3 days! There are still items for sale and auction, and future monies will go to helping Vera get new sewer pipes, medical care, etc. This wasn't the first time I donated to help a writer or person associated with the world of books out of a crunch, and it certainly won't be the last, but every time reminds me what a great community we can be in times of trouble. Hooray, hooray, hooray!
