Help The Graner Family

From Rikki Kite at Linux Magazine:

My friend and colleague, Amber Graner, lost her home to a fire this week. Luckily, the family wasn’t in the house at the time and no one was injured. Pete and Amber were at UDS, the kids were with relatives, and the dog was rescued from the fire.

Even if you have home-owner’s insurance, the immediate expenses add up as you scramble to get some necessities, including clothing, toiletries, food, and new housing. The Graner family is well-known in the open source community, and many of their colleagues and friends have expressed a desire to help them get back on their feet. I created a page for anyone who would like to chip in to help the Graner Family get some clothes and other necessities: http://granerfamily.chipin.com/the-graner-family

Every little bit helps.

Amber helps with the Ubuntu Weekly News and writes the Ubuntu News (among other things) in Full Circle. If you can, please donate something to Amber’s Chip-In page. As Rikki said, every little helps.

The next issue of FCM will be released when the contributions to the Graner fund rise.

Please donate, either that or something ‘nasty’ may happen to the next issue!
