Dear Funds for Rochita Backers

Dear Funds for Rochita Backers,

Thank you so much for your donations, rewards, and other generosities thus far. This money goes a long way in helping Rochita sort out her affairs. On her behalf and the behalf of the campaign team, we are very grateful.

However, we now need to ask for your patience. We are aware that GoFundMe recently took down the campaign sometime during October 28 and we are doing all we can to gather the reason and to get the campaign up and running again. Please do not worry, as we still have access to the funds and have records of the donors. We will keep the updates coming as we learn more.

Again, thank you all very much for the outpouring of love and support for our dear friend and valued member of the SFF writing community.

UPDATE: And we’re back online! We can’t thank you enough for your patience and continued support. 🙂
