I want to publicize this GoFundMe, because it offers a very direct and concrete way for people to make a difference in the lives of some African Latter-day Saints, the Nmeribe family from Nigeria. They have three children studying at BYU whose continued attendance is threatened by covid-induced financial issues.
I’m often skeptical of such things, but the “chain of custody” here is very short. I know Russell— you may know him from his books and podcasts, here and here, for example— and Russell knows this family. When he caught malaria in Africa, the Nmeribes took care of him.
So check it out. If you want to bypass their GoFundMe for whatever reason, there is also an email address you can PayPal it to. Leave me a comment below, and I’ll pass on your email address.
