Emma was a really friendly, welcoming, and supportive person in the midwest-to-south folk punk and travel circuit. She was a good friend to those of us who knew her, and honestly still a good friend to those just passing through. Amazing sense of humor, constantly shitposting and making people laugh, always making sure everyone was fed and safe, played a mean accordion. This past week, Emma took her own life.
It warms my heart to see how all the people whose lives she touched are coming together, though. And how many of her memorial events are parties, she'd have loved to see it.
Emma was a dear friend of mine. I adored her to bits and pieces and considered her an auntie to my dog Cujo.
This week has been really hard for a lot of people in the traveling and folk punk community. I encourage everyone to check in on their friends and loved ones and strive to make this world a bit of a friendlier place.
The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
Buy Matt a Beer
$75.00 of $75.00
Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
Feed Matt a Burrito
$100.00 of $100.00
Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
Finance the Shopping Cart
$105.00 of $200.00
Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
