Having come from direct service work, I know how exhausting it is. I saw examples of burnout that turned into despair, and promised myself I'd steer clear of that route. Those I admire most know how to take care of others and themselves.
To that point, when we learn of a commrade who needs a break we want to do whatever possible to help. When our friend A. needed a break, we wanted to contribute. We threw in $100 to a GoFundMe to help them survive some major life changes.
That $100, like all our other contributions, came directly from pipe sales. Thats harm reduction funding mutual aid!
