Welcome to the Joseph Garnick support family! This site is for family and friends, old and new, to organize our efforts to support this extraordinary person. This page will serve as your home base for receiving updates to support Joe. Here's the plan:
Your First Step: Please take 30 seconds to click on the "Follow" button on the top right of this page. This will allow you to receive updates, read journal entries, and help the family with week-to-week calendaring needs. Though not mandatory to follow Joe's page, we encourage you to easily create an account with your name and email in order to be able to post photos, leave comments and sign up as a helping hand on the Calendar page. Feel free to upload a photo of yourself to your profile so we can get to know and recognize others on Joe's support team.
Journal: This tab is where you can read the latest entries posted for Joe. You may see additional authors writing updates here to help alleviate pressure for Ellen and Joe and expedite information sharing. Each post is followed by a photo and name of the author of the entry. You can reply with supportive comments to any journal entry, or click on the name of its author to send a private message.
Posts: This is where you can leave an encouraging message for Joe and family, and to read thoughts left by others!
Calendar: Please see this important section to learn what the family needs NOW. This will be an especially helpful section for locals in close proximity to Joe and Ellen. This is an up-to-date calendar which will list the family's immediate needs such as meetings, rides, and meals to help most in the short term. If you see a need posted and can fill it, please sign up through the calendar page directly (i.e. not through private communication) to let us and others know that you've committed to that need. Please check back often to help out with the most recently posted needs!
Notifications: After clicking “Follow” above, you’ll then see a tab to manage “Notifications”. If you feel you’re receiving too many or too few email notifications, please check this section to tailor notifications to your areas of interest. For example, if you want to receive journal updates but not new calendar posts, or any combination of notifications from this site, you can do set them to your preference this section.
