Greg and Julie Hatcher are two of our favorite people.
They don’t have a lot of money, but are heroically generous with their time and work. Greg has been an invaluable panelist and a wonderful columnist for Comic Book Resources. And his wife Julie is truly one of the nicest people we’ve ever met.
For a long time now, Greg has worked as a part-time writer and part-time Middle School art teacher, and Julie was recently laid off from her job, which provided their health insurance.
The good news is that even on unemployment, she could still get health insurance and they still kept their heads above water. And even better, Julie recently got two job offers. She accepted the best one, and had to turn down the second.
And then, the company that hired her — but hadn’t committed the job offer to paper — decided that they didn’t want to hire someone after all. And the second job that she’d turned down had already been filled.
Julie, who is physically incapable of lying, told this to the unemployment office — that she’d had to turn down a job. So her unemployment benefits have been dropped. They can no longer afford Julie’s medication and are in a lot of trouble.
The unemployment office is going to sort it out. But it’ll take a few weeks.
The problem is that real life isn’t going to wait for a few weeks. Greg and Julie have to pay for food and ultilities and medicine. And that simply cannot wait.
So, Greg and Julie need your help. Fellow CBR veteran Jim MacQuarrie has set up a GoFundMe site for Greg and Julie, and we’d like to ask you to help out.
On our show, Greg has continued to share his time and experiences and stories as a panelist for free. And he needs your help.
