I hope this is ok to put in a few words here.

A lot of members have given very generous donations which is very kind but if you are only able to donate a small amount please do, lots of small amounts add up.

If you donate to a charity we all know only a percentage ever gets to those that really need it, with the donations here 100% will go to the person who needs help.

Remember that Muskrat and his wife have lost almost everything. You like me are most likely sitting in a chair in your home reading this, Muskrat doesnt have a home or a chair anymore, he has almost nothing.

Every little bits helps.

Paypal chops off around 5%, I'll put in the difference at transfer time so it'll be back to 100%.

And yes, a good dose of smaller amounts very welcome, can add up to a substantial amount.

I note Caretaker refers to 'transfer time'. Presumably that'll be some months away as funds keep coming in. Has anyone been in contact with Musky to see if he needs immediate cash?
