Someone in my extended social circle is in serious trouble. Her housemate is traveling and turns out not to have paid the oil company. Ever. They're entirely out of oil, and they're freezing. Oh, and she's got lung problems and a teenage daughter.

If you have a little spare cash, consider giving a little something, or reposting this.
I've deleted the links; they've reached their goal already.
