I hope this bookstore owner and others in MA have called Maura Healey's office.

If GoFundMe has a legitimate reason for the delays, it sure would be nice if they explained it.

I donated to the gofundme for Papercuts in JP. I love them as part of our neighborhood and want them to stay!

I gave to that fund and will again - I love I AM Bookstore - it has a great selection of books and is just the kind of business that the neighborhood needs - What's with GoFundMe?
