This isn’t something we often do, but one of our own Atlanta Skeptics, LaVerne Knight-West, is going through a difficult time and I’m hoping we can help. Some of you may know that LaVerne has gone through a rough patch of really bad luck over the past few months and has been struggling to make ends meet for herself and her family. Last week, when she was in the process of moving, the house she was moving from was robbed. She and her two sons have now pretty much lost everything. The burglars took their clothes, electronics, DVDs, even food out of the refrigerator.
Since showing up at the very first Atlanta Skepticamp, LaVerne has been a bright light in the Atlanta Skeptics. She’s always kept us on our toes and embraced skepticism and critical thinking with an eagerness, warmth and passion that has been a joy to watch. We love her and want to help her out now, when things are looking so dark for her.
If you can, please contribute a few dollars to help LaVerne and her family get back on their feet. Any small contribution will help.
UPDATE: We raised over $1,500 for LaVerne! Thanks so much to everyone who contributed!
