I just got an email from my ma about my home town. About a week ago, at least 13 tornadoes touched down along the NM-TX border and one of them ripped through the middle of Clovis. It destroyed 400+ homes and businesses in Clovis alone. It ripped up 100 year old trees, tossed trailers through the bowling alley roof, ripped the roof off of the senior citizens housing, bent phone poles in half and sent air conditioning units from one of the junior high schools through the roofs of surrounding houses. It completely destroyed one of the grain silos I'd known all my life. A lot of people were injured in some way, head trauma and the like... 2 are in critical condition. 120-125 mph winds left a 3 mile long path through the center of my town. I'm so scared for people I grew up with and families I know still live there. I'm sad I can't be home to physically help in some way.A Salvation Army truck on its way from El Paso to Clovis was looted. $1500 worth of supplies was stolen right out of the back of it and the thieves haven't been found yet.
I don't have a lot of free time on my hands right now but I want to start a fund raiser for Clovis. I don't expect to raise a lot of money but every little bit will help, y'know? So, if you're interested, I'm goin to open $3 commissions for quick head-shot sketches of your choice of character. Please send your donations through PayPal
to email@example.com. Once a good amount has been saved up I will donate the entire thing to UnitedWayENM.org for the Tornado Relief Fund. Or, if you'd rather, you can bypass me and donate directly to their website.
If you want a $3 commission please send me a note with "tornado commission" as the subject and include any links to character references. Anything from you guys will be appreciated so much.

If anyone out there is willing to help me 'save the Gilmore Girls' and keep the show on the air for another season, I would really appreciate it. Even if you're not a regular viewer, simply clicking the 'Vote for Gilmore Girls'
stamp and then voting for the show in the online poll would be helpful... and it would really mean a lot to me.
