Residential Needs - Donations to Bart, Hannah, & Seed
Several Glassworks employees were victim to a house/studio fire on 1/26/08 at the Lava House. They did not make it out with anything - no car keys, no IDs, not even shoes. One particular employee lost his dog in the fire. Donations for the residents are being collected by Glassworks / Architectural Glass Art and they have generously pladged to match all donations. The money collected by Glassworks will be split three ways between Bart, Hannah, and Seed.

Studio Needs - Donations to the Artists
Donations for the studio relief are going into a paypay account and will be held by the German-Paristown Neighborhood Association (a 501(c)3 non-profit organization). These funds will remain in the neighborhood association account until we have a clear idea of what we are doing with the money and how the funds will be allocated.

If you want to donate to a specific person, please send an email to Hallie Jones and she will coordinate your wishes.
