Want to hear an amazing story? It starts with a sob story. My daughter @amili, who is a graphic design student and makes all my covers, was visiting me in Seattle and just returned home to California to her apartment that has been broken into while she was gone. All her art supplies were taken, and all her shoes (???), but worst of all, both her Russian and American passports which will be costly to replace. So I tweeted about this, and my readers asked if they could help. I threw together a blog post. While I was typing this, $200 trickled in! And as I type this, my email keeps making these pinging noises because more money is trickling in!!!
THANK YOU, MY READERS. YOU ARE THE BEST. I LOVE YOU FOREVER.
Below is the post and the pictures my daughter sent me.
MY DAUGHTER'S APARTMENT GOT BROKEN INTO, ART SUPPLIES GONE
You, my amazing readers, asked me to throw this post together, so we can help my daughter, who makes all my book covers and is a graphic design student in California, recover what was stolen while she was in Seattle, visiting me and her dad. She just called me, curiously very composed, and informed me that their apartment (she shares it with several roommates) had been broken into, turned upside down, and many things are gone. Whoever did this, took my daughter's art supplies, ALL OF HER SHOES, clothes, her Xbox, her roommates' 2 TVs, and, worst of all, both of her passports, American and Russian.
Replacing the passports will be a pain, since she doesn't have any other documents except her driver's license. They also took her birth certificate. So I don't even know how it works. She said it costs around $300 to pay for a passport and have them look into her records or something. What I do know is that replacing the Russian passport will cost about $200 and might involve travel. Not sure right now, maybe my information is outdated. Anyway. I am looking at my budget right now to see how much I can send, and everything you will donate I will send to her and will let you know how much was raised!
You can donate via PayPal or directly to me.
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
I love you all. You are my family. My everything.
