Our friend, who goes by "Crox Pow" on Facebook, had a large tree fall on his house during storms on Halloween night. The tree is on the house, there's a hole in the roof, and he currently has no power. And the winter rains are on the way. He has few resources and no insurance (long story).

But, he has his FRIENDS!!

Whether you enjoy his regular mixes of psychedelic music on his Doc Lab Psych Psounds page, or his political commentary on FB, were involved in the Lexington music scene in the '90s, are a long time friend or simply a compassionate bystander... let's rally our pocketbooks and put our arms around our buddy in his time of need. 

Crox grew up in this house, which was built in the 1940s and has had few upgrades since then. He inherited and moved into the house when his mother passed away several years ago. He currently shares the house with his two dogs.

The damage to the house is not terribly extensive, but he needs to have the tree removed and repairs done SOON before water damage occurs, and he needs the power back on before temperatures fall below freezing and jeopardize the plumbing. 

He needs an electrician or handyman to put the electric service back on the house so the power company can hook him back up. Estimate: $???

He needs a tree service to safely remove the tree from the house without causing further damage to his own or his neighbor's property. Estimate: $1300-$5,000

He needs a roofer or general contractor to repair the damage to the roof once the tree is removed. Estimate: $???

I have set the donation goal at $5,000, just as a starting point. If we get close to it and funds are still needed, I will revise. FundRazr is a PayPal-based crowd-sourced fundraising app. There is a small fee associated with PayPal that is taken out of donation amounts (I believe it's around 3% - and FundRazr takes another 5%).

I am a long time friend of Crox (since 1989?) and live within an hour's drive of him. I will deliver donated funds to him as they come in and are needed to cover repair expenses.

Please help! Crox needs his house back!!
