We found a very small baby fawn (could barely walk) next to her mother who was killed.
There was nobody in the DC area that would take her, she was due to be euthanized since her mom was dead. My fiance I an said absolutely not and took her to the closest rescue who would accept her, which was Friskys Wildlife Rehabilitation. They’re county, state, and federally licensed but since they’re a 501 (c) 3 Organization they don’t receive ANY funding. The estimated cost for the fawns care is $1,350 dollars for 4.5 months. I have all the paperwork for tax deductions, General info about the wildlife center, EVERYTHING. I would be willing to get it for anyone willing to help.
The people who own the rehab were a old husband and wife duo. So sweet and nice.

Rob is a DC native, DCPS alumni, and an only child to his single mom, Crystal Hines. Ms. Hines worked in the front office of Jefferson Middle School for many years and was literally an angel on Earth. It would be amazing if the DC community could come together and help Robert achieve his dream as his mother continues to watch over him.”

Monet via GoFundMe
This is for a former colleague of my wife. She is really a wonderful young woman. The young woman was attacked after refusing a man’s advances, leaving her in the hospital with a broken jaw. She’s in between jobs with COBRA that won’t cover everything. She has filed a victims compensation claim with DC, but that has its limits as well. Any circulation and donation would help her. Thank you very much for considering.”
The GoFundMe says:
“On Wednesday, April 14th Monet told a man “No” and he attacked her, breaking her jaw in the process.
For anyone who knows Monet, she is not one to ask for help, only to offer it others. This GoFundMe is the help she needs right now. She is currently in the hospital, awaiting surgery to have her jaw put back together only to have it wired shut for the following 6 weeks.
The assault took place while Monet is in between jobs, literally set to start her new one in only a few weeks, and as a result she’s in between health insurance coverage. A 10 day hospital stay, surgery, and out patient care for the next 2 months… It’s not clear what will be covered by COBRA, but you know it won’t be enough.
As of 4/17, her bill already exceeds $8,000.
Please help reduce additional trauma by donating to help with her medical bills so she can get back to helping students and her family without the burden of debt.”
This young woman was assaulted on the metro this week after refusing a man's advances. She now has a broken jaw and growing medical bills. She is in between jobs and a primary caregiver. Any help is appreciated! @PoPville https://t.co/BOxlGqc6Io

“Coffee Nature is a local coffee shop in Tenleytown/Friendship Heights. It’s owned by Joseph Oh and his family, and is truly a staple of the community. Joseph’s dream when moving to America was to start his own business, and he has certainly succeeded — transforming this space into a home away from home for many customers, with (pre-COVID) open mic nights, art displays, and seriously impressive latte art (and coffee quality!).
