Ginny Quick is a blind Muslim convert who lives in Erin, Tennessee, the nearest big town being Clarksville. She, along with her brother and sister-in-law, lost nearly all her possessions in a house fire just a few days ago. She is the only Muslim in her family and she has recently escaped from a violent and possibly exploitative marriage.

They are in need of money, clothes and many other household items since they really lost basically everything in the fire.

I'll send a donation.

She needs a lawyer. The landlord may be responsible for many of her
