I just read the news that Linux Journal Editor Shawn Powers lost his home today due to a fire. He and his family all escaped unharmed, but they lost their home and family pets. I don’t have many details (I’ve not been able to find many elsewhere either), but I wanted to pass on the news. Their local community and church have stepped up today to help them with basic shelter as I understand. Beyond this a call has gone out for community donations towards helping them get back on their feet.
If you are so inclined, please visit this page and donate what you can. I’m sure it would be very, very appreciated.
