Via Eirean Bradley:
In the interest of staying open and honest with our community: Tonight during the slam, The pointy house (where Eirean, Robyn, Brian, and Bryan live) was broken into and robbed. Thankfully no one was hurt and the lovely house that we call a home was not vandalized or damaged. The big deal is that the portland poetry slam fund was stolen as well as every laptop in the house. That is over $7000 dollars.
We will be putting up a kickstarter page in the next 24 hrs. Please help us continue the work and community we have fostered. It takes more than one person to break us, we have hundreds to build us back up.
Dear Pipe Dreamers,
The Portland Poetry Slam community has been my haven. I owe so much to these beautiful, talented, and giving individuals. Please show your support and love in this time of dire need. I will keep you all updated on the kickstarter page.
Again, share this message with your friends and help this community.
