Eudaemonia” – Them Are Us Too

♥❤♥

We lost so many incredible artists in the Ghost Ship Fire in Oakland including Cash Askew from Them Are Us Too.

If you would like to learn more about these amazing people & what they created for the world you can do that here & here.

Here is a Youtube playlist: Music of the Oakland Fire Victims

Please take the time to immerse yourself in their art, find their social media accounts, their SoundClouds + Bandcamps, their published work, buy their art if you can, connect with it, & spread it around, keep their beautiful spirits alive.

If you would like to donate to Cash’s family directly you can do that here. The Gray Area Foundation for the Arts set up a fundraiser for all of the families & here is a list of individual fundraising campaigns.

The Trans Assistance Project’s Oakland donation is going directly to fund funeral services & end of life costs for the trans women who lost their lives: Feral Pines, Cash Askew, & Em Bohlka.

♥❤♥

Hug your chosen family today, tell them how much they mean to you.

♥❤♥
