Shawn Powers an editor from the Linux Journal and computer guru at a school district lost his animals and most of his worldly possessions, (clothes, food, computers, beds, you know just about everything but the clothes on their backs).
Here is the notice:
"Everyone's beloved, crazy, big-hearted Linux Journal editor and Indian Lakes school district system administrator Shawn Powers, has lost his family home today to a fire. We have limited data about the extent of damages at this time, but can report that all people (his amazing wife, Donna and three girls) are all ok. Unfortunately his animals were all lost in the fire.
We'll report more as we hear it, but in the meanwhile wanted to set up a fund to help the Powers' family get back on their feet as quickly as possible. Please, if you can, every dollar will help. Computer equipment donations, we know, would also be greatly appreciated and the folks at Linux Journal will help coordinate any equipment donations (e-mail publisher Carlie Fairchild, firstname.lastname@example.org for details)."
This is the site if you wanna help this family out.
