    Today we have setup a GoFundMe page for our beloved reporter @Chary.

    Krista and her family have lost their entire home and all worldly possessions in the floods caused by Hurricane Harvey.

    Please help us to help them by donating on the following page, any amount will help!

    :arrow:Donate on GoFundMe
    :arrow:Donate via Paypal to shaunj66@GBAtemp.net and we'll match it on GoFundMe

    :arrow:Houston Red Cross

    [-UPDATE 2-]
    Chary and her family have now received the cash from the fundraiser in full. Thanks again to everyone who donated and helped out!

    [-UPDATE-]

    After 2 weeks 82 donations have helped to raise £2022 (roughly $2670) to help Chary and her family to rebuild their lives.

    A massive thanks to all of the following tempers who donated, and those of you who wished to remain anonymous:

    Also a massive thanks to everyone who has streamed to help this fund.

    You are what makes GBAtemp such an amazing community to be a part of!


    Now, as for GoFundMe, they have still not released the funds to Chary, despite saying they would, over 10 days ago. The excuse is their engineers need time to convert the raised amount to dollars, and their payment processing team are trying their best to get it done. To me this sounds absurd, but here we are, 14 days since the fund started, waiting for the cash to be paid out in this emergency situation.

    I would donate if i would be allowed by my parents, the only thing i can do is saying that I'm sorry to hear what happened and I'm wishing Chary luck.

    Wish I could donate more but I only have $6 in my bank account. As soon as I get my check cleared I'll send more.

    I don't have a lot but will donate what I can. Chary is an incredible person and no-one should have to suffer the loss of their home. I will discuss with the others about having next months Patreon donations sent to her also.

    Gosh, guys, I woke up feeling kinda miffed about sleeping so roughly, and now I'm near bawling. No, scratch that, I'm full out sobbing. Not out of sadness, but just overwhelmed by all this.

    I can't even begin to find words for this. It's so humbling, and shocking, and I'm just so thankful, and happy that you guys would do this. I feel bad, at the same time, to have people donating... but when I realize all that's happened, I...might actually need that kinda help.

    This site, and it's community have been something I've been apart of, and treasured for nearly five years. I've made so many friends from GBAtemp, the site lifted me up when I was down as a teenager, and the kind people on this site have always been so caring. And of course, I always have fun posting news and reviews and such, hahaha! Something like this is just amazing, and I thank you all, from the bottom of my heart.

    I will donate a bit when I am at home. Hopefully enough people show humanity and do the same.

    @Chary, I hope your situation will get better soon.

    Sadly, I don't have a credit card (not that much needed as in the US). Is there any other way to spend something?

    If anyone wants to donate via Paypal I will happily accept your donation - send it to shaunj66@GBAtemp.net and I will match your donation on the Gofundme page who don't accept Paypal.

    Be sure to mention your username so I can credit you on the Gofundme page unless you want to remain anonymous

    my dad works for nintendo.
    i would say to cancel the gbatemp bounty, due to this circumstances and redirect the money prizes to chary...
    but this is really unfair for those who want to enter the competition, and gbatemp already made the compromise... and would be really bad for the people..
    maybe instead of 5 prizes, just have 3? and reduce the second and third prize value? instead of 100 dollars amazon card, make it 50...
    i think she deserves it, she did a good job when the attend to that conference thing (i think e3?) she had been streaming in twitch, i do see her a lot doing "reporter" stuff

    maybe create a thread and ask the people who enter the bounty if they agree with smaller and fewer second and later prizes. and put it in the @Chary jar(d)

    @Chary even though I don't speak so much to you anymore, I will donate, as I consider you a good friend of mine. ^~^

    Darn, I need a creditcard, I'll send the money later today <3
