If you have spent enough time on Hive, you surely know @enginewitty.

Witty is a witness, a wordsmith, the "crypto pimp", a US Veteran, the founder of the Alliance, host of the Block Party, Splinterlands player, a silver gold stacker, a fisherman, a father and a friend to SO MANY of us. He has spent years of helping tons of people gain their footing on Steem and now Hive. Today it is our turn to help him.



Last night, while out of town with his three girls, Witty received the news his home was on fire. He has since shared photos in the alliance discord. There is extensive damage and several of his family's beloved pets lost their lives. I can only imagine the upheaval this kind of loss would bring to someone's life.

To do SOMETHING to help @enginewitty with his family's immediate and long term needs @summertooth and I (@dfinney) would like to suggest the following ways to help:

  1. Send hive donations to either this account @ewfund or directly to @enginewitty. Witty has the keys to this account. As do I and @summertooth. @thekittygirl also shares this account's posting key. I am not sure if Hive is immediately useable, but we know this is an easy way for folks on the blockchain to contribute.
  2. Send donations to Metamask 0x531F2B46BD97947BF7EC4dA7d86fE9BcFff5D3dc
  3. Purchase an Amazon or Walmart e-gift card. These gift cards can be sent to email address: [email protected]
  4. Send PayPal donations to [email protected]

We are also checking to see if there is an appropriate physical address to mail items.

Thank you so much for helping our friend. Feel free to reach out here or on discord if you have questions or suggestions on other ways to assist.

Much love,

@dfinney & @summertooth

The response from this Hive community on the whole, is remarkable. You're all banding together for a common cause and spreading love like it's free. (It is though, isn't it?) Not just from communities I'm involved with or family I've adopted here, but everyone with a beating heart is doing what they can. I'm amazed by you all and will have what is looking to be, thousands of thank you letters to write.

God Bless and hug those little girls! Be strong brother!

!LUV And certainly sending you positive energy, prayers, calm, and so glad that you and those prescious girls are ok...

Love your guts brother...

I'm so sorry about this @enginewitty, this is truly horrible :(
I'm glad your family is ok though, even though a lot of memories are lost, the most important thing is you are safe.

I sent a small donation, it's currently all I can miss but I will come back later when I can.

Take care! You will get through this!

<3

The outpouring of love and support is great to see and not a surprise in the least, it's like a virtual group hug!

@enginewitty I don't know you personally, but that doesn't matter, I hope you will soon recover from your loss. I give my full support to you and your family. Good luck my friend. 💪💪

Thanks for helping out! Ewwwwwwwwwwww!!

Dang. Sorry for this misfortune.

Although, I kinda wish you guys didn’t name this account “Ew Fund”.

That was all @summertooth. 😄 The pressure to help was too distracting to notice the name. 😂

Maybe it is is like ewwww I am so sorry this shit thing happened? 🙂

Thanks for helping @enforcer48. Everyone needs a some ew in their life, right ;)

😂🤣😂

It's like E-Dub fund, not

"eeewwww" LOL

🤣

I laughed because that was also my first reaction...

eeeeewwwww.... Fund

Thank you for your witness vote!
Have a !BEER on me!
To Opt-Out of my witness beer program just comment STOP below


Hey @enforcer48, here is a little bit of BEER from @isnochys for you. Enjoy it!

Do you want to win SOME BEER together with your friends and draw the BEERKING.

Oh my gosh that is terrible news. But thank God the family is okay! I will make a donation.

Thanks for helping out @jayna :)

EW is such a kind person and has supported me here and on Steem since I joined in 2018.

Thank you for your support @queenstarr!

I'm literally very sad to hear about this, he seems like a kind and nice guy. Don't know much about him as I'm also new and I'll do as much as possible to contribute and help him.

Really happy to see community united to help him! More respect to whole community.

Well welcome to the community and thanks for stopping by to support the cause :)

Thank you for the welcome and yea helping or supporting for the cause in difficult times is matter a lot to build a better community. Really love to see caring people around.

Sorry to hear this sad news. It's never easy losing a pet, they are like family and the pain hurts just as much. Sending hugs, prayers and as much HBD as I have, which isn't much, but every bit helps. 😊

Yep, it all helps @frostyamber, thanks for your support.

Always happy to help @summertooth and @enginewitty is one of those guys that's always there for others and its nice to be able to give it to someone that needs it and will put it to good use instead of just sitting in my wallet doing nothing. 😊

Much love to you @enginewitty from the stacking crew.

Hi @myprecious, thanks for your support!

De verdad que lo cuento mucho amigo , se lo que se siente pues pase por algo similar .
Gracias a Dios ustedes están y las cosas materiales se van a recuperar ... Muchas fuerzas estamos contigo y tu familia

Gracias por su apoyo @ferbu :)

I'm so sorry to hear that...I can't even have the gut to imagine what he has gone through.... I will try whatever is possible to help you from my side. Hope everything comes back to normal in soon time. Loss of property can be regained by loss of life is something that will never come back. Everything will be fine @enginewitty . Take care of yourself and your family

Thank you for your support @punkblogs!

Thank you for doing this @dfinney !!! Told my family yesterday and will be sending some love out today! @enginewitty is always there for everyone in need, and now it's our turn to pour love on him!!!! (love you my brotha ❤️)

❤️❤️❤️

Thank you for your support @dreemsteem :)

Jesus! That’s a tough set of cards to be dealt. Sorry to hear about the family pets, that’s so sad. Relieved to hear the family are safe.

Thank for stopping by and showing your support @article61.

Least I can do. Thanks for the reply ❤️

My heart goes out to @enginewitty in this terrible circumstance. I am only happy that his family is well and hale, although losing beloved pets is a terrible personal loss. Thanks for making available a means of assisting them in their time of need.

Thank you so much for your support @valued-customer :)

I am sorry for the loss of this family, some time ago I lived a similar story close to my environment. It is very sad to work all your life to lose everything in 10 seconds. Lots of encouragement and strength, the material things can always be recovered, the most important are the people and the beautiful family you have. I send you a hug from Spain.

Thanks for the story and your support @nightportraits. I do believe he and the family will come out of this stronger than ever.

Stay strong,
Things will get better.
It might be stormy now,
But it can rain forever....😊❤️

Very nice, thanks for supporting the cause :)

You are welcome🙂☺️

Thanks for doing this guys, every little bit helps a good bro on Hive!

SOrry to hear about that and I hope you guys can get back on your feet soon!

Thanks for your support @grider123.

Hello, may the universe allow @enginewitty to achieve full recovery in your life, in an expeditious manner. All from the love of the universe. I have little time in the hive, and it is great to see how solidarity is present in moments of calm, of needing a helping hand, a word of encouragement, makes around you vibrate positive, pats on the shoulder are a sign of affection. The universe will open its doors for all to be restored. Sorry to hear about the loss of your pets. You reap what you sow and this is a token of people's gratitude towards the pain @enginewitty is going through .

Very nice sentiment @dorytagil2022, thanks for your support.

Sorry to read this about your home and pets. !LUV

It's so sad, This is an unplanned misfortune but don't worry we got your back

What a horrific experience, but the most important thing is that @enginewitty and his family are safe.
Sending prayers, hugs and support.

Sending prayers and hugs. I know what it's like to lose everything to a house fire. Thank goodness you all weren't home.
