You may have heard that one of my clients, Children’s Fairyland in Oakland, is facing severe financial hardships. Eighty percent of their money comes from admission and since they’ve been closed since mid-March, it’s stopped coming in. The majority of the staff has been furloughed… again. The park got a PPP loan to pay staff this spring but it has just run out. Me? I’ve still got work there, at least for now. If you have a few bucks to spare, please throw it at their big online fundraiser. They are aiming for $300K to keep afloat and have raised nearly $50K since last week. It’s really a special place and it would suck to lose it. Thanks, folks!

P.S. I continue to camp out in my backyard every night SJ is with me. It’s one of the few things that make this crazy summer even feel like summer at all.
