When my sister's in trouble, so am I

She's a giver alright! Her name is Joan, and for as long as I can remember, she's been in charge of the safety committee for the LGBT Pride Celebration back in San Francisco. She's also active in her church and her community. So much of her work has literally kept people safe, and even saved lives, that many don't even know her last name - they just call her Safety Joan. Now though, she's the one who needs help.

Not to worry about her physical health - she's fine where that's concerned, but she is without an income now and without a place to live. In San Francisco, that can be a particularly scary situation. She has a cat, which will find a temporary home with some Episcopal nuns, but the separation from her emotional support animal will be difficult for them both. Safety Joan will be invited in for a night or two by members of her church, but most live in tiny apartments, and this is just a very short term solution. I have no idea what she is going to do for food.

This woman has given so much, and continues to do so. How wonderful if folks could give back! Suggestions for income possibilities are welcome. (Just post in the comments section). A GoFundMe fundraising campaign has been setup by a friend, and it would be wonderful if that could collect some money for her. Click HERE to donate to that. Your prayers are certainly welcome too!  She's been like a sister to so many.  Let's give her a hand.
