Ok

I set up a GoFundMe page.  Spread the word!

https://www.gofundme.com/hurricane-relief-for-flceltsfan?teamInvite=gP4rOLdm8OevoWsVbuT7moCM9nHJusoof7IBQgCVqOh3bSFJZGyBMWtmUvxIOvFI

I moved this to the Game Threads section for more visibility.

I reached out to Jeff about this.  Just heard back and he’s going to share with CB.  Pretty awesome.

stay safe! let us know how we can help! I find the new forum, there aren't as many threads present in "latest discussions" so if this thread gets lost and somebody set up some sort of gofundme, can someone PM me!

I'd love to help!

 This is a very important point… Hopefully those who run the site can Adjust it so whatever is most recently commented on ends up at the top of the latest discussions list.

TP

Currently what happens is that Community threads *only* appear under the Community section on the right, and ditto for fantasy. This makes them slightly more sticky over time (and gives a quicker overview to new users)  but not mixed with more general Celtics talk.

That said we’ve gotten lots of feedback and are learning and will continue adjusting.

Specific to this, if we can get a Go Fund Me going I’m willing to pin that thread all the way to the top of the sidebar in its own section so it is THE featured thread.

TP for all the work and the tweaking.

And especially for the prioritizing of a great cause.

Thank you.

We're one Perkules donation ($43) -- in honor of FLCeltsFan's favorite player -- from surpassing $2500.  Who's going to do it?

So so proud that the community here can do what little bit they can to help a person who has made our community so great.

Though we have hit our goal, let's not think we need to stop. Insurance doesn't always cover everything and can be a long time coming before you get the money to do what needs doing. Meanwhile, the mortgage needs paying. Buying gas to run the generator needs to be bought. There is a thousand things that need to be done and sometimes the paycheck or pension check or social security check can go only so far.

So continue to give CelticsStrong. FLF has been doing the game threads and Celticsblog front page Celtics news for over a decade for your enjoyment. I am doing the game threads. It is a time consuming effort of love that she does which, after doing a couple of threads, I am amazed at the amount of work she has put in over the years for us.

So keep giving. Any little bit helps.

❤️FlCeltsFan❤️
🍀CelticsStrong🍀

I upped the goal to $5000.  They’re still coming in steadily.  It’s super cool that CB and CelticsStrong are working together on this.

Nick, have you heard from her?  I need to get her bank info in order to get funds to her.
