Original Post

I just wanted to let everyone know that the end of June, my mother and I are hosting a townhall meeting where we will be sharing some important information with the community about health insurance.

The idea came about by reading threads in the forums where people discussed how they can't afford health care or don't have the funds to be seen by doctors. This really bothered me, because people SHOULD have access to health care.

My mother is an insurance agent and has been for over 15 years. We started talking the other day about how small business owners or independant artists seem to go without health insurance because they either don't know the laws, what's available or feel they just cannot afford it.

My mother and I will be answering any questions that you may have about health care, insurance companies in your area and insurance laws. She is doing this free of charge and will not be profitting from this meeting. We both just want to help out the crafting community that we have grown to love.

Right now the dates are June 25 and 30th for the meetings. Times are being worked out and as soon as the admin and I work out any other details there will probably be a blog post about it with more definite information.

Please attend this meeting. It's very important to get all the information you need to take better care of yourselves and your families.
