What would you do if you lost everything in a house fire?

Hi there.

This isn’t a normal blog post, because life isn’t always normal.

Meet Sharon.

My friend Sharon Angle, who teaches at Foothills Music Academy, had a house fire last night here in the Seattle area. And lost everything. She’s a renter and sadly didn’t have insurance to cover her belongings. Luckily, she’s ok – but she needs some help.

In addition to normal household items, Sharon’s going to need money and/or donations to replace her Piano, Guitar, Keyboard, and collection of sheet music. She is also looking for a small studio apartment for her and her two cats and two small dogs; and for a studio space in Bothell and Kirkland for her other Eastside students.

My wife and I are working on a fund where people can send donations, and for the meanwhile if you’re interested please email me or Tweet. I’d really appreciate your interest and help.


  • Sat 1/28 – The good folks at Dwolla have suggested a great way for you to donate to Sharon if you’d like to send her a few bucks online. Simply go to this link, sign up for Dwolla and note that the money is for Sharon, and you can contribute directly. (Thanks Jordan!)
    (Note: the page will say “Greg Meyer, Woodinville” – when Sharon gets an account we’ll update the link.)
  • Weds 2/1 –  Please consider donating to her fund. Donations can be dropped off at any BECU neighborhood financial center, or mailed to BECU.
