UPDATE from @nathanpboston re: effort to get induction cooktops to those in the Merrimack Valley. The GoFundMe will be kept open as it's imperative that people have a way to take care of basic household tasks. 100% of the money is going to cooktops and shipping charges 1/
Nathan is also still looking for new or used pots and pans (with lids, hopefully) that can be used with the cooktops. You can test a pot by holding a magnet near the bottom. If the magnet sticks, it's good for induction! 2/ #mapoli
From Nathan: "Hi all! We've blown past our $5k goal and are now at $6,158! [edit: now it's $6449!] Now our two biggest challenges: securing inventory, and connecting with households. As of today, 5 homes are able to cook that weren't" 3/ #mapoli
"...by tomorrow lunch 2 more homes will be able to cook and heat water. After many attempts to reach @IKEAUSA, we succeeded this evening in placing an order for 100 Tillreda units, which will come in 3 waves..." 4/ #mapoli
"... starting with 54 units arriving between 9/23 and 9/25, and the remaining 46 arriving Oct 5. I so wish we could have them sooner and into homes! Meanwhile, today we placed an additional on-line order for 20 units and a further 29 units to arrive this Friday."
5/ #mapoli
"...All said, this campaign will have placed a total of 156 induction units in homes in the Merrimack Valley. Now we are doing all we can to get the word to get out to needing households! Pls help spread the word!"

The GoFundMe will be kept open as it's imperative ppl have a way to take care of basic household tasks. 100% of $ is going to cooktops/shipping charges. Pls share this link, tagging the press to get out the message that relief is available for free #mapoli
Oh, wow, the total donated went up $500 in the time it took me to write the twitter thread!
@threadreaderapp unroll pls
UPDATE: Project Induction Cooktops! @nathanpboston "Last night @zeynebmagavi & I delivered 5 units to homes in the MV. I wish you could've seen the look on folks' faces when they knew they could cook again. They're so thankful for your 💙 of gold!" $8299 donated & rising #mapoli
$8299 donated & rising. I have purchased 5 cooktops from Amazon to arrive at Nathan's house tonight. Getting paid back immediately. This is how people will get the cooktops... technology, social media coordination, email, texting. It's amazing and wonderful. #MVGasFires
Updates have been coming fast/furious in the past few days. Volunteers from Gas Leaks Allies & @MothersOutFront are out in force, delivering induction cooktops to those who need them #MVGasFire Pls read at the link for more info:
OPPORTUNITY TO HELP: we've been hearing that the #mvgasfire area food pantries are really hurting right now Any money that can be given to help would be greatly appreciated. You can donate NOW here:
Updates! A huge amount of activity went on this weekend with the delivery of 1800w induction cooktops/pots/pans to those in need in Lawrence, MA after the Merrimack Valley gas explosions. The National Guard handed out hot plates that have low wattage (100w on one burner and ...
... 500w on the other) so it appears they may be more frustrating than a problem solver. The bigger issue is heat for the Fall and winter, but that's a whole other post. Please see the updates at the link below, the most recent one being here: gofundme.com/clean-cooking-…

@wgbhnews What a fantastic podcast, & not b/c I was mentioned, I swear. Honest look at @CharlieBakerMA's record on certain things... the part I'm interested in is his handling of state responsibility re: compressor permitting, AND... 1/
@wgbhnews @CharlieBakerMA ... @CharlieBakerMA ignoring a "model protester" for 82 days as I waited for him to take action re: compressor on state level. I sat in his office as he'd ignored Weymouth for 2 yrs running up to my action. TWO YEARS. Blog for my action is here: sitwithandrea.wordpress.com 2/
@wgbhnews @CharlieBakerMA As you can see, it took A LOT to get him to take any action. He kept saying "it's a Federal issue". There is a Federal component to the #weymouthMA permitting process. Normally @FERC has the last word. Not so in our case: @MassCZM has the last last word. 3/

@jay4ma Jay is 100% correct about this avenue of revenue!
I *highly* recommend folks listen to @Gladwell 3 part podcast series on rich colleges. I was flabbergasted at the amount of money socked away. 1/
@jay4ma @Gladwell Please make sure to see Gladwell’s notes by scrolling down each podcast’s page. There are some links and some data that will knock you for a loop, one of which is this: nces.ed.gov/fastfacts/disp…

My friend Nathan Phillips and Gas Leaks Allies (a coalition of like-purposed environmental groups) have made a gofundme to buy induction cooktops to donate to residents. Residents have electricity, but no gas for the foreseeable future.

This effort just started yesterday when Nathan bought all the induction cooktops at our local IKEA. They are actively trying to get GE and IKEA to donate. I trust him/Gas Leaks Allies 100%! Please consider donating, thank you!

.@CommonWealthMag Why no mention of the @massforenergy group being a front for gas interests? > bit.ly/2DKqqxt

It's more obvious that #MACP gas push is 100% for 💰💰 👉chaired by Jim Judge, Pres/CEO of Eversource.

#mapoli @jonchesto @reillyadam
.@MassGovernor, when do constituents get such access to you, @SpeakerDeLeo, & @Sen_Chandler?
The letter was dated March 12, but not released publicly until Tuesday because officials with the partnership first wanted to reach out personally to [Baker, DeLeo, Chandler.]
I read @jonchesto's business newsletter last night that outlined the whole mess, meant to follow up then forgot🤦‍♀️Jon lays ALL the laundry out. @CommonWealthMag didn't.
