My friend Tammy is in need of adequate legal representation at this time. As you may or may not know, court-appointed legal representation leaves something to be desired. While we certainly need systemic change in the long-term, Tammy's trial date is in August and she does not currently have the liquid assets to obtain the lawyer she wants to represent her in this matter. I will personally vouch for her as a wonderful example of sparkling humanity, for what it's worth, and I know that if the tables were turned she'd be there for her friends in an instant. That's why I took it upon myself to lead the charge and see if any of her friends were willing to kick her a few dollars to help her in this time of need. All funds raised will go directly to costs related to her legal representation. Please do not donate more than you can spare. Even a dollar or two makes a difference. If you can't spare the money, sharing the campaign makes a huge difference. Thank you for your consideration.
